Classic Cardigan: The Time I Listened to Funkytown 100 Times and Captioned a Bunch of Dog Photos

Disclosure: I had a different post planned for today, BUT! I took too many pictures (to use in it) with my phone, clogged up my outbasket trying to email them to myself, and then froze up the Internet connection in my house trying to open the pics on my PC. Therefore, the post has been postponed to a date in the near future. Very near future. Meanwhile, please enjoy this (really old) classic!

I get a real kick reading through my early posts - my writing style, for one, has really evolved. It was pretty darn stiff back then, if I say so myself! But that's okay - I was trying really hard not to make a complete donkey of myself. Because who would want to read a donkey's blog? I thought.

Ironically, since my current writing style is to write like a donkey on purpose, I guess I really shouldn't have worried, huh? HEE HAW! (sorry about that; it slipped out.)

Please enjoy my first(?) attempt at Chronicles of Cardigan photo caption comedy, originally published on 2/24/2011...

Funkytown - The Dog Version

It's always a good morning when one of my kids manages to get grounded before leaving for school. Now when more than one kid gets grounded in one morning, well, that just makes me want to burst into a morning song! Today it was Funkytown (circa 1980, by Lipps Inc.).

Okay, okay, that didn't happen this morning. Nope, this did: two kids got grounded, after which, one called me a "meanie" and then plotted his revenge. So, how do you think a 7.5-year-old gets revenge on his "mean" mommy? Like this: he pops his Disney Dance Songs CD into the player buried beneath the fallout-he-calls-a-room, fast forwards the tracks to Funkytown, presses PLAY, then REPEAT, and then quietly gets into the car to be driven to school.

I'll admit the first few times I heard the tune playing from downstairs, I bopped my head along to the beat - who wouldn't? It was the, oh, 10th, 25th...100th time later that made me want to stab my eardrums out with chop sticks!          

So today, as an homage to Funkytown, here are a few pix of my funky corgis!

Give me the noms NOW!

She's crazy if she thinks I'm gonna bounce with these on.


Not pooping in the rain, not no way, not no how.

This is your dog on sugar.

Happy Dog or Smiling Grinch???

"Dude. Hot Cavalier chick to your right."

Making a really good wish or constipated?

WhatCHU doin?

Jon to Dewi: "I think we're parked, man."

(11/18/2013) Note: I reserve the right to use all of these photos again, as many times as I want, and with completely different captions, as needed. ☺


  1. Delightfully and slightly off, as always. Love it!

  2. Especially enjoyed the captions -- they were fun and imaginative -- and just what I needed after a day full of distractions!

    1. Oh, yay, so glad they helped! Thanks for telling me so, too!

  3. They're my pictures and I'll caption if I want to...

  4. Adorable. It looks like you guys are laughing

  5. We enjoyed those and they sure made us smile. Nice one.
    Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Love it. Your dogs look like a lot of fun!
