Friday Foolishness – Canine Edition


Today’s Music: Lynyrd Skynyrd – Edge of Forever

Despite it feeling like at least 10 days since last we met, it’s only been a week. How do I get through such a long slogging stretch? By reading blogs! Here’s some of what I saw…
For a Trifecta challenge, Marie Nicole put a great piece of magic. Red waxed wisely on getting writing help.
And sandylikeabeach is officially retired!

They, and you, made it a great week for reading blogs.

Hey, it's more than just words to me,

Hey, it’s more than just words to me,


But last week was all about getting better here. And thanks to all your advice, I know now that I will just lock myself in a room with tears running down my face.
Because your answers made me laugh that hard! Here’s what you said. (As always, my comments are the best that they can be in italics.)
*One note – Polldaddy was a bit wonky, so I sincerely apologize if I missed someones’ answer, and the omission was not deliberate.
You do polls? John Phillips
(I like to think of them as existential thought exercises…)

(Then I don’t understand why so many people get advice on it from Dr. Phil.)

Wait a minute! This isn’t Hooters! Where the hell am I? – A Bad Influence

Hold my hand while I do this scary polling thing –Marie Nicole

Serve more ravioli and wine. Red.
(I used all the wine in the recipe.)
(*Burp*)

Change the color from gray to pink, of course. ~Maddie
(I am secure enough in my manliness to not be afraid of pink. Or feel the need to prove it.)
(*whew*)

Add an interactive Pole…! SnaapALicious
(Is Lech Walesa still available?)
remember that the only good polls are stripper poles. Revis
(Which makes these polls a bunch of overweight mailmen.)

Let someone else host them. Twindaddy
(Sadly, no one will take my calls anymore.)

Congratulations to Emily @ The Waiting for this weeks winning answer. And from the offered choices, the most popular was a tie between Give substantial, valuable prizes. and always pick me as the winner!. But would you want there to be substantial prizes if I didn’t pick you?
Dentist
Now that you’ve stretched your pondering muscles on that, consider this: For everything that is brought to dentists for their recommendations – toothpastes, teeth whiteners, Slim Whitman albums – 4 out of 5 do recommend them.
But I’ve always wondered, what does the fifth dentist recommend? Well, that’s this weeks poll for you to sink your teeth into.
So bite hard, bite often, but bite before 2359 EST on 18 April, because that’s when this one ends.
And if you leave your name in an “Other” answer, I’ll link back to you next week.


And as we head off into what will hopefully feel like a longer weekend and shorter week, enjoy these.
First, I was turned on to this by a young friend, whose parents then had to explain to her what bestiality was.

And since we’re already changing lyrics to songs, hears the Literal Video version of aHa. It always gets a laugh out of me, if only for “assful of pipe wrench”.

Have a great weekend everyone, and I’ll see you when next we meet.
