Memes for a Monday

I’m not sure what the weather is like where you are but here it is freezing rain, high winds, icy roads and sidewalks and dark skies. You can’t call it winter, I’m not sure what you can call except s..t to walk a dog in!

And speaking of dogs …

And so you cat people can see what you’re missing:

The word for January 16th is
Poop poo͞p: [1. Noun 2. Verb]
1.1 A person regarded as stupid, dull or disagreeable.
1.2 Excrement.
1.3 An enclosed superstructure at the stern of a ship.
1.4 Inside information
2.1 To defecate
2.2 To cause to become fatigued; to tire.
2.3 To take (a wave) over the stern.
Stupid or dull person: from 1915 perhaps short for nincompoop.
Excrement,” 1744, a children’s euphemism, probably of imitative origin. The verb in this sense is from 1903, but the same word in the sense “to break wind softly” is attested from 1721; earlier “to make a short blast on a horn” (poupen, late 14c.).
Nautical meaning: c. 1400, from Old French poupe “stern of a ship” (14c.), from Old Provençal or Italian poppa, from Latin puppis “poop, stern,” a word of uncertain origin.

Memes for a Monday

Being an equal opportunity blogger this week it’s Canine comics.

Our Bundnie held the record in our house. Squeaker found and destroyed in two minutes.

We can’t give you a raise but how about a nice big title? Sound familiar?

Like they would go willing to see a Vet under any conditions.

Well it’s probably no any worse than those pine tree things that us humans use.

Hmmm…… what we have here is a copy cat. And yes that sounds like a valid criticism of some (ehem) of us.*

I can’t say this a question at our house – it is always “cookie”.

What a team player!

Laurent would automatically carol, “Honey, it’s for you.”

I’ve heard that doggie psychiatrists charge $60-70 and hour? I’d love to see their notes about the owners.

And because ……… dachshund!

*There were originally seven exclamation points on the original draft but I took the cat’s advise to heart. There are now only three.

The word for August 8th is:
Bitch /biCH/: [1. noun 2. verb]
1.1 Afemale dog, wolf, fox, or otter.
1.2 A spiteful, unpleasant, or disliked person – originally applied to a woman.
1.3 A difficult or unpleasant situation.
1.4 A complaint.
2. To express displeasure; grumble.

Time for canine memes again.

Let’s admit it they have us as well trained as we think we’ve trained them.

I pass this little tip on only as a public service announcement.

You knew there would be religious meme, didn’t you?

We never do that – we have all eleven pages saved as a PDF for printout when needed.

I’m just surprised that the icon is a Scottie when a dachshund would fit the bill!

Oh come on! Admit it! It’s cheaper than a home alarms system.

True this:

I have given up all delusions – we are resolutely Frame #4.

And a final truth about dachsies:

But Edith Warton was right but x2!

The word for April 4th is:
Stubborn /ˈstəbərn/: [adjective]
Having or showing dogged determination not to change one’s attitude or position on something, especially in spite of good arguments or reasons to do so.
Middle English (originally in the sense ‘untameable, implacable’): of unknown origin. One theory is that the origin may come from stybor, *stibor, from Old English stybb (“a stump, stub”) + adj. formative -or.

Lunedi Lunacy

Aside from being a bit of a daddy – hey you choose your daddy figure I’ll choose mine – zefrank is a full fledged Internet star. His True Facts videos and Ted Talks are legend. And that voice – he’s the Morgan Freeman of the Youtube Generation. On one of his videos he does a commercial for a sponsor and I listened to it twice just to hear him say “audible” 15 times.

The True Facts remind me of the old Hinterland Who’s Who but with laughs and some of the strangest creatures on earth’s surface – and below for that matter.

Madagascar gave many of us a new insight into Lemurs – zefrank goes, perhaps unnecessarily beyond!

The word for January 6th is longest word (45 letters) in the OED and continues our volcanic theme: pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis /ˌnjuːmənoʊˌʌltrəˌmaɪkrəˈskɒpɪkˌsɪlɪkoʊvɒlˌkeɪnoʊˌkoʊniˈoʊsɪs/: [mass noun]|
an artificial long word said to mean a lung disease caused by inhaling very fine ash and sand dust.
Invented in 1935 by Everett M. Smith, President of the National Puzzlers’ League.
