Weekly Winners: July 6-12, or the chronicles of Carl

I have a little tale to tell today ...

It's the story of Carl. Carl actually belongs to Holly at Anglophile Football Fanatic (dotcom), but he is going on a whirlwind trip around blogland.
First he stopped at the home of Blue Momma, where he went swimming with Punkin.

He lounged around in Blue's car for awhile before flying 'cross country, where he finally landed on MY planet.

The thing about Carl, though, is that he has a bit of a problem.

He arrived here last week, half in the bag:



And before long, I found him snuggling up to the Kahlua bottle:



Binge drinking never ends well:



I felt bad for the poor guy, but I was NOT going to be responsible for his bad behavior. So I sobered him up with a lot of hot coffee:



And shipped him off to rehab -- where he met a lot of interesting drunks people, including Fifi La Fly:

... a Hollywood wannabe (a little plastic, if you ask ME) with stars in her eyes and a penchant for silver jewelry.

Anyway, Carl was hooked. He couldn't take his eyes off Fifi and soon was shacking up with the ... ahem ... young lady.



This particular rehab place had an interesting way of treating their patients. It totally involved an infusion of antioxidants ... whipped to a frenzy in the blender of loooooooove.



Now, seriously, I think Fifi is really not appropriate company for our recovering Carl, so to get him away from this baaaaaaad influence, I am shipping him off to see Vdog.

There is a rumor that she is taking him to BlogHer next weekend.

I hope he doesn't get into trouble there.

It looks like Carl throwed and then sowed his wild oats.

Fly swatters freak me out! It's true! I have fly swatter phobia. That I read through this entire post and looked at all the pictures just proves how much I love you--and that I don't believe that fly swatter has ever actually been used.

Annie said...

That was hysterical! I loved it! Looks like Carl is a bad apple!

Vicky said...

Cute story. Very funny and creative shots.

life is a blessing said...

Very original, very funny!

The Mom said...

HILL ARRY AAASSS!

Secret Agent Mama said...

HILARIOUS!! Love Fifi, too!

Blue Momma said...

Janet, that was a great post! Very creative!!! I think Carl must be thinking what a waste of time B'ham was after his time with you.

And it was Hubby's car, not mine!!! I did my job on time - he was the slacker!

anglophilefootballfanatic.com said...

Oh, my. I think I threw up a little in my in my mouth. Again. I thought he was heading to rehab in LA. I guess maybe Fifi's going to make him fall off the bandwagon.

VDog said...

ZOMG, hilarious. I'll try to keep him off the sauce.

Maybe I can finagle a picture of Carl with Dooce?? Maybe???

VDog said...

ZOMG, hilarious. I'll try to keep Carl off the sauce. Although I hear he has a hot number up here in NorCal, too, tempting him with mai tais and such.

Maybe I can finagle a pic of Carl with Dooce?? Maybe???

Kaytabug said...

This was so original and FUNNY!!
Love it!!

robinellablog said...

Great Twofer post! If she doesn't find a Virginian to host, maybe I'll volunteer. Specially since she used all that disinfecting stuff on it. :-)

Immoral Matriarch said...

OMG did you create vomit for the swatter?? LOL

Cathy said...

Those are funny! nice job and I'm hoping I get to meet Carl sometime soon!

Rebecca a.k.a. Mum said...

haha that's funny, I hope *carl* is feeling better now and away from that hussy lola! lol

swampy said...

Is Carl related to Flat Stanley?

I'll have to come back and clink the links to find out what's going on with this fly swatter.

I'm not fond of sly fwatters because that's what my used on my back side quite often.

Pamela said...

was his fly was down in one of those shots?

You can see right through guys like that.

The Laundress said...

You are my kinda crazy, lady.

iPost said...

LMAO! Where do you ladies come up with these things??

Jo Beaufoix said...

Snort, looks like Carl's having a fabulous time. If he'd like to visit the UK I'd be happy to showe him the sights of Nottingham. :D

Catwoman said...

Wow, looks like Carl will spend the next two years in confession when he returns to Texas.

But hey, if you're going to be bad, might as well go all the way. Even if it's with a skank named Fifi.

nikki said...

That Carl! Hopefully he used protection.

Marmarbug said...

That Carl he is really something. Naughty little man. Um, you don't think that he um, is a baby daddy do you?

LceeL said...

So - are Carl and fifi gonna get married? Just be sure to remind Carl - no hoopi, no shtoopi.

Janet said...

Carl had best watch himself if he thinks he's getting anywhere near MY Kahlua. That was hilarious.

Sarah said...

Yay for Carl!!! The poor guy and his drinking bing *giggle* How crazy!!!

dawn224 said...

Sandy C. said...

ROFL! You are hilarious :)

Is it me, or does Fifi look a tad bit like Lindsey Lohan?

Burfica said...

oh poor carl, he's gonna be heartbroken. lol

maybe you should pack him some fly nibblers to take with him.

Nekked Lizard Man said...
