It’s Wednesdog


This Wednesdog is brought to you by the folks over at “How to Submit Your Wednesdog or Caturday Pictures Incorrectly.”

I received this submission from one Barb O’Hara, a stranger to Le Café Witteveen. And the only thing she wrote in her email was: “I’ve been skunked” with the attached image of what appears to be a dog of some kind.

I’m using this as a lesson for the rest of you. Please submit your pictures, but provide more information about the dog (e.g. name, age, dislikes, marital status, sexual preference and bra size).

The best Arrested Development line … ever


There are many quotable lines from Arrested Development, but none of them are funnier nor as greatly delivered as Buster saying (through Franklin), “I don’t want no part of your tight ass white country club you freak bitch!”

Oh glorious, glorious Arrested Development.

Thanks, Tina!

Talulah’s new bag


I know, I know, I haven’t updated you with how amazing Talulah is taking on new tricks. Well, here’s your update, so you can SHUT UP!

One great trick that Tina taught her is “High Five.” When we throw the ball for her to fetch, you say, “High five!” when she’s on her way back, and she runs close to you and let’s you stroke her coat as she runs past. I swear to you this is a trick. Otherwise, she will not run close to you.

We also have her catching balls in the air. She’s getting really good at it. I threw a ball much higher than the train tracks yesterday, and she caught it no problem. Other times, she’ll let it bounce.

And thirdly, her new trick is jumping through a hoolahoop. We thought this would be a piece of cake, but Talulah was afraid of the hoolahoop at first. We’ve had to get her more and more accustomed to it, and finally, she is doing this:

.

She still has work to do, but it’s a far cry from where she was last week.

She’s our smart little chicken.

Ants gone WILD!


Check out this group of fire ants banding together to be unsinkable. I heart science.

About the video:

A cluster of fire ants floating on the surface of water is pushed down with a pair of tweezers. Note the deflection of the water surface and how water does not penetrate the raft.

Should I repent for Poe’ing it up?


Yesterday was busy. I had a photoshoot in the morning and then we met with a couple about shooting their wedding in the afternoon. I had scheduled two posts to hit in the morning, and then in the afternoon, I found this infographic doohickie to post, and it raised some eyebrows.

I’m not accustomed to bringing atheists out of the woodwork to comment on a post. But all night long, I got some great responses from strangers who didn’t know I was joking.

At first, I felt badly. But then I thought, it serves these morons right to jump to the conclusion that this blog — of all places — isn’t posting something so ridiculous as a joke.

It shows me at least one thing, it doesn’t matter what team you’re on, there are still dullards who jump to conclusions and respond without doing just a teensy-weensy bit of research.

And frankly, that pisses me off. Atheists are supposed to be the smart kids. Atheists see through the haziness of what’s right in front of them, and they search for the truth, no matter what it is.

I’m not saying we’re exempt from the occasional April Fool’s Joke or a weak moment of gullibility, but for Pete’s sake, grow a brain muscle between them ears of yours. Think before you write.

And if you’re not willing to do so, then get off the fucking Atheist bus and ride the short one where you belong.

HONK!
