Dufus of the Day Award: Alana and the Three Stooges


Today’s Dufus of the Day Award goes to the “poet” flavoring the blogoverse with bizarre attempts at something literary, or perhaps a mere fixation on my middle name. Versions of this butchered haiku have hit Life by Chocolate several times:

You know ALANA?
 
Then you know IRENE.
 
You know IRENE?
 
Then you know CHO.
 
And if you know all of them, morethan likely you're into
 
Washington with ROB LOWE.
 
And if you're into Washington with all these people you are gun running with mob.
 
Know hownthey know this ?
SOMMARLANDPAKKE .
AMILEGST.

Influenced by Dufus’ challenged logic, added to nighttime-sniffling-sneezing-so-you-can-rest medicine (in short, please forgive me! I’m not well), I was moved to respond in kind:

You know DUFUS?

Then you know RUFUS.

You know RUFUS?

Then you know MOE

And LARRY and JOE!

And Half Pint too,‘cuz she dated ROB LOWE.

He’s no prairie boy, though - a dad with two kids in tow.

But Curly’s the best.

Nyuk, nyuk to the rest.

Soitenly, this I know.

  4. I have seen variations of that "poem". They just make no sense.
    I like yours though.

  5. I was going to laugh at your parody until you revealed that Laura Ingalls had dated (and presumably lain with) Rob Lowe. I have to lie down in my hammock now.

  6. Even when you're under the weather you're still the queen of comebacks! I love how threw in a little "six degrees of separation" into the mix! Hope you feel better soon Robyn! Julie

  9. Melissa, thank you, sister! It was weird and fun.

    Susan, glad you liked it. Thanks.

    Pat, he's a curious fellow - pops in and out sporadically with verses centered on my middle name.

    Ruth, LOL. They really don't make sense.

    GB, yes, she takes great pride in her past with Mr. Lowe. I read her memoir; she's still pining for him.

    Empty, thanks so much. I'm feeling a bit better. Cold medicine has a strange (but kind of good) effect on my brain.

    YW, thanks so much, friend.

    Alex, always glad to have you on my side.

    Pat, thank you. I was inspired by some of your word wars - which, of course, you always win.

    Be well, all.

  16. You are SOITENLY a funny, funny poet. I hope to hell you know it!

  17. Thanks, Johanna.

    Al, say it isn't so. Nyuk nyuk.

    Pearl, glad you liked it. Thank you.

    PTM, yeah, yeah, Hallmark can start a Dufus of the Day line. I'm on it.

    Anthony, I don't blame you. I'm wondering if Aussies know The Three Stooges (?). Either way, it's all a bit too weird.

    John, I knew I could count on you to get the "soitenly" reference. And to encourage me to stay drugged up. Thanks, dear friend.

    Dawn, I try. You're so kind. Thank you.

    Keep a smile, all,
    xoRobyn
