Saturday Funnies: Dude

by Richard

Sometimes I get bored. Sometimes when I’m bored, I’ll start flicking through the google machine and see what’s the haps, as the young dudes say.

With that in mind, I started flicking through the image results that came up when I googled one word: Dude.

It might not surprise some of you to learn that, no A Dude’s Guide wasn’t on the front page. Most of that front page was taken up by images of one Jeffrey Lebowski, known now and forever as the Dude, played by the inimitable Jeff Bridges in full-on spacer mode. If you’ve never seen it (then you can’t be Zippy the Monkey Boy who watches this movie at least once a month), then you’re really missing out on a surreal, spacey trip through the life of a seriously left-behind loser. It’s also funnier than heck.

Anyway, type in dude to the google machine and you get some interesting images. Like this:

Who would have ever thought there was  Jeffrey Lebowski action figure? Not me, dude, that’s for sure. Especially an action figure that comes with removable White Russian, the preferred drink of the Dude.

We’ve also got this:

Obama’s got nothing on this cat.

Of course, as with all google machine image searches, there’s always the probability (not possibility, but probability) that you’ll run into something more than a little vaguely disturbing. Evidence for this assertion? Why, the following, silly dude.

With American Idol finally over, I thought I’d finally be rid of that, that, that whatever the heck thing that is. Seriously, dude needs to stop getting work done. After a while, you’ve just got to declare defeat, muster up as much dignity as you’ve still got the shreds of, and mope on home. He is long past that time.

So, off with you. To the google machine for a little fun. Go. Enjoy.

Cute Creepiness And/Or Possibly Creepy Cuteness

by Richard

Horror, by some definitions, is when appalling things happen to good dudes. Come to think of it, that probably could explain American Idol, but that’s not important right now.

No, let’s talk about stuff that is intentionally horrific. As you know, I continually scour the web looking for stuff you, yes you, can enjoy. I know. No need to thank me. I do it because I love you.

With that in mind, I ran across something in the vein of Coraline, in which it looks like a cute world of cute little girls, but there’s something awful lurking underneath. And sometimes, it’s lurking out in plain site.

Here’s Alma. Enjoy.

Squealing Like A Little Girl

by Richard

Not much today, dudes, because I’m too gleeked up for tonight. No, I couldn’t care less about who’s singing what on American Idol tonight. What I’m talking about is the return of the best musical-themed show on television: Glee. Now that’s entertainment!

Now, I’ve talked about my love for Glee before, but I wanted to remind you of the show’s existence today so you’ll have a chance to start the second season fresh tonight at 9:28 p.m. on your local Fox affiliate.

This is a great musical show for people (like me) who don’t like musicals. Like me.

Although, now that I think about it, I might have to stop saying that. I mean, I’ve seen and loved Jersey Boys, South Pacific, Bride & Prejudice and a couple of more. Hmmm. Maybe it’s not that I’m starting to like musicals more, but that I’m getting older and I’m starting to lose more brain cells. That could explain so much.

Anyway.

Tonight She Who Must Be Watching Glee Live and I will be ensconced in our chairs tonight and ready for that first note to hit the airwaves, the first slushee to hit the face. It’s going to be fun. Join us, won’t you?
