Welcome to my World of Wonderment

Our planet is a neat place, full of weird and unusual people doing weird and unusual things. One oddball thing I like to do is geocache. What other activity is there that makes people travel hundreds of miles to climb a mountain, wade a river, and fight a Bigfoot, just to be the first person to sign a piece of paper rolled up in a 35mm film canister stuffed in the knot hole of a tree? I can't think of any other sport that has such a great mix of technology and the wonderful outdoors. A lot of geocaches are placed in a beautiful setting, or hidden in a challenging or unique way, or in a historical setting. Geocaching allows the finder to share in some of the hiders favorite places, and along the way you get to meet some interesting characters, and occasionally learn something new. While this blog is primarily a geocaching blog, I also use this place to post the occasional funny video or weird news story, or as a platform to rant or rave about something I really have to share. But for the most part this website is about you, the weirdo walking around in circles, talking into your GPS unit like it's a phone, pretending your taking pictures of a phone booth to find find the tiniest micro-cache, or circling your car around and around a light pole in a parking lot trying to retrieve a cache without even getting out of your car.


A Dog on the $25,000 Pyramid

I've been a big fan of Seth McFarlane ever since I saw the first episode of Family Guy. Now he's doing short videos for the internet on sethcomedy.com

This video reminded me of an old joke that I thought I saw on a Bugs Bunny cartoon. A man walks into a bar with a talking dog. The bartender says that the bar doesn't allow dogs. The man says that his dog is special because it talks. The bartender asks the man to prove it. So the man asks the dog, "What's on top of this building?" and the dog barks out "Roof." The bartender looks angry and points outside as a cue for them to leave. The man says hold on, and asks the dog, "How does sandpaper feel?" The dog barks out, "Rough." The bartender is getting angrier and demands for them to leave. The man says, "hold on let me ask the dog one more question to prove it to you. Dog, who is the greatest baseball player of all time?" The dog wags his tail and barks out, "Ruth." Well the bartender has had enough and physically throws the man and his dog out on the street. As they are getting up the dog looks at the man and says, "What? Do you think I should have said DiMaggio?"

I have always loved that joke, and for some reason I think I saw that in a Bugs Bunny cartoon, but maybe I'm getting it mixed up with that stupid singing frog. Anybody else recall that being in a cartoon?
