There is so much wonderfulness in this episode that I don't know where to start!

TLP said...

But I could start by saying that I would have been first, darnitall, if Minka had read the d*mn story before smiling.

TLP said...

;P

Cows. Can't live with them, can't live without them. xoxo

I loved this story. The scene with the sailors earnestly wrecking the ship while trying to repair it would make a great Monty Python skit.

Doug said...

Well, howdy, Minka.

TLP, that was fun. You're right to stick your tongue out.

Ain't that the truth. Mireille?

Thanks, Quilly.

Jamie Dawn said...

Oh yes! The dress!!
I'm wondering what rare materials they will have to have for The Dress of All Dresses??
For us women, it's ALL about the clothes... then the food and the flowers. Oh, and the man too.

Nessa said...

Lots od fun. Made me think of the Keystone Cops.

actonbell said...

a man with no shirt holding an improvised oar, propelling a river boat in the open sea disappoints my expectations

How could one be disappointed by this?? That kind of audacity must be regal.

I agree, this was a wondrous episode.

TLP said...

What are you going to do about the dress??? Something tells me that you know nothing, nothing NOTHING, about wedding dresses. Or any other kind of dress for that matter. The dress will be very interesting.

Doug said...

JD, tell the truth. A woman'd marry a billy goat if there were truffles in his beard and his mother was angora.

Nessa, I should have had the Benny Hill theme in the background, huh?

Thanks, Actonbell.

We'll see, TLP.

“a good emperor sheds blood when his servants make war and likewise takes splinters when they build"

Wouldn't it be nice if that were so, lot's less wars I bet.

I totally see Johnny Depp in this somewhere.

Take a bow. I know it's not the end but take one anyway.

AP3 said...

I think that Doug and I have less appreciation for shirtless men than actonbell. Now, a shirtless woman would NOT disappoint.

And TLP, don't forget that Doug used to be in the fashion industry...

Great episode! 4 stars! Kiss My @$$ Bunny!

TLP said...

Doug's been in every industry AP3. But I've never seen him in a dress that I thought was suitable for a wedding. The boy does try of course.

Under the weight of not much cargo and two mythical characters, the last dry platform on the ship crashed into the wood-lined swamp below.

that was one of my favorite lines in this week's offering. and this week's is one of my favorite offerings of the entire series.

knowing you're a Big Fan, i'm guessing you'll be taking your cue for next week's chapter from Project Runway. ; )

Doug said...

Cooper, I bow to you. Johnny Depp makes a pretty effeminate pirate. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

The funny thing, Sis, is I would be shy about putting a topless woman in my story. I guess we can just hope Actonbell enjoyed the view. When was I in the fashion industry? I have worked in floristry.

Haha, Neva. Is that the one with Tyra Banks?

Minka said...

Nope, Doug it is the one with Heidi Klum. You should get your Germans straight.

I have to agree with everybody here, this is a terrific episode and makes my top three list...yet I can't help, as TLP, to wonder how you will know anything about lace, patterns and those silly shoulder pads in wedding dresses.

maybe Jennifer Lopez's e-mail might be of help in research for this particular topic?

AP3 said...

Doug, your blogger profile used to say that you were in the fashion industry! Remember?

AP3 said...

Oh, and yes... you can cheer for any team you want. Now that the Chargers did the dirty work of eliminating the Colts, though, it's futile. Pats will be 19-0.

Tom & Icy said...

Check out the Playground. A movie version of your story. Don't tell everyone.

tsduff said...

That tongue left me speechless. I am so sorry I missed the Malagar scarabs though. Were they any good?

actonbell said...

Scarabs are DUNG beetles, right?

Doug said...

Minka, they all look the same. I think I don't need Jennifer Lopez' email but thank you anyway.

Right, AP3! I did forget. I suspect you're right about the season's outcome but I'm counting on Brer Bret. Besides, Tom Brady is so gay!

Icy, it'll stay between us.

Terry, we mainly eat birds.

Actonbell, I have no idea. Thomas Pynchon is famous for his painstaking research. I am not.
