Saturday in a Giffie

smokinIt’s been a wild week
around here,
but it’s also been
a great week for the mail bag.

You guys have been finding
some seriously weird
and funny vintage stuff !!!!

I love animated gif’s !!!

Let’s see —

Where to begin…
where to begin.

I know.100

Tracy sent me a picture
from her latest vacation….

maybe that’s not
the right one.


It certainly looks
like it’s somebody’s trip.down

Animation like that
really draws you in.

Pulls you in.

You know what I mean.

I could look at stuff
like that all night….

Except maybe I got to finish
this post and all.hi

I love weird
and fun
gif’s of all kinds,

it’s amazing what curves
can do to a man.

Or like this
next one–

It’s magic.


How could you go wrong
with Buster Keaton, right?

A Tumblr friend was kind enoughmagic
to forward it with a note
not to reveal her name,

…. lest she be besieged with ….

I dunno exactly.

I don’t blame her
for not wanting to be tied in
with THIS mess of a blog.

Matthew sent me this next one.

I think it’s very cool.

It’s called a Phenakistoscope .PHENA 312501

It was a way of simulating motion
invented back in the 1830’s or so.

This one looks pretty old, too–

Comets and planets and suns,
oh my.

Old stuff like this
really makes
you appreciate
how our smart
our forefathers
really were…

They may not have
had digital technology,

— but they could sure
entertain themselves, right ?

I wonder if they made any dirty ones.anticipation

Maybe not–
— who knows.

Ah well….

One thing hasn’t changed —

We’ve always got
our imaginations
to fall back on, don’t we?



Just Goofin With Gifs

stockingHiya !

Today’s post is a little on the weird side.

Well, ok —
every post on this blog is a little on the weird side,
but this time it’s —

— fine.

Be that way.

Today we’ve got some goofy gif’s — with even goofier captions.

So, the page may be a little slower in loading than normal.

But, I think it’s worth it…

The gifs are definitely funny.

The thing is,
I’m not saying these captions are the best ones.tum

Maybe you can come up with one or two that are better.

And maybe you’ll send em to me,

And maybe I’ll change the caption to yours,
because yours really are better.

How the hell should I know?

Let’s try it, shall we?

I’ll show you mine, and you show me yours.


For example-
on the first uncaptioned pic, Carolyn gave us:
“When these come off they will be taken off by a man.”

And, on the second uncaptioned pic, Jen suggested:
“Sing with me: “just a jiggle a day …”

While Carolyn submitted:
“As long as I keep shaking my groove thing, it keeps raining!”

easy, peazey, right?

Ok then….

Here’s the first one:


1: Use Sriracha Sauce very sparingly.


Carolyn at doesitevenmatter3 offers: “Godzilla’s Halitosis vs Tokyo!”

Jen at Blog It or Lose it suggests: ” Godzilla learns that the green stuff is NOT guacamole ”


2: Good Stoppie, Bad Fallie .


Carolyn’s caption: “He can tell their future children that she fell for him in a big way!”



3: Some Guys Are Just Natural Dancers.


Carolyn’s caption: “Lurch Wins Dancing with the Stars! YAY!”

Jen says : Day 3: While Lurch’s timing has improved, he has yet to master the Double Salchow.
(That there’s skatin’ talk.) 😛
or maybe — ” Dancing up a storm ”



4: Catch Me If You Can, Sucka.


Carolyn says: And when Cooper acts like that little white dog I say, “Demon-dog on the loose!” 😛

Jen’s caption is: ” You Can’t Touch This. ”



5: Always Inspect Your Tools Before Using Them.


Carolyn’s caption: “Made by Acme and Demonstrated by Wile E. Coyote.”

Jen says it should be: ” Here, hold my beer.. ”



6: It’s Not The Size Of The Dog In The Fight–  
— It’s the Size Of The Fight In The Dog.


Carolyn suggests: ” Mom’s mad at you Dad! You better hide!”

Jen’s reads: That ain’t mi…. aw, hell, it IS!



7: I Don’t Have A Caption For This One, I Just Like It.


Carolyn’s : “You think you can handle me, but you can’t!”

Distantshipsmoke suggests: “Is it hot in here or is it just me?”



HOY !!!!!!!
