Sx3: Celebrate a Blogoversary; Win a $50 Tar-Jay Gift Card!

Meet Ed. He used to live in FLA. Then his people moved to Kentucky. Mrs. Scribe found him on the Internet.

Today's Silly Sunday Sweepstakes is For Real this week...mainly because The Scholastic Scribe celebrates its 1st anniversary-blogoversary on Tuesday. That would be the 31st of March. The day before April Fool's Day.

Tuesday will be my 364th post, and my 1-year Blogoversary! I lost a few days in August, & gained a couple more along the way. Didn't post every day during the past year, but most days I was hanging around this very spot.

To celebrate the start of Year 2, we're doing things a little differently today and tomorrow. Running a little ol' contest, as it were. The Sx3 Rules of Engagement will remain the same; you'll just have an extra day to show us what ya got, & will be rewarded for the effort!

So, for a chance at a $50 Target Gift Card, here's what ya gotta do. Take a Gander at this Superior Snap. Conjure a Caption for said snap, and tippy-tap that sucker right here, right now, in the Comments section of this post. It's that simple! We over here at The Scholastic Scribe will judge your efforts & will reward the funniest among you.

No pressure. The Sx3 1-Year Blogoversary Caption Contest is open until 11:59 p.m./EST on Monday, March 30. So, get your thinking caps on: Let the games begin!

Hmmm...maybe one CAN be too thin.

Estela said...

Howie just knew that if he kept up the beer guzzling, that hoe of his would leave him for a younger man...maybe even one with flesh.

Bilbo said...

Not having done any serious gardening for many years, Ed decides to bone up on the basics.

Anne said...

Sunscreen. Yeah, it's important.

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

I just about died waiting for you to bring me another beer. Oh, wait. I DID die!

Craftymoose Crafts said...

"Chill out, Mon!"

Shelley said...

SPF 50? I don't need no stinkin' SPF 50.

Veggie Mom said...

Listen...I have a bone to pick with you. Lay off the beer when you mow the lawn, OK?

auntrene said...

Thank goodness for a beer, I was bone dry.

I am so relaxed I feel like I have slid right out of my skin.

Monica said...

Anybody have sunscreen?

Joy said...

Since experiencing male-patterned baldness, Frank learned the hard way to never forget his hat when outdoors on a sunny day. No head burn for him!

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

"I just knew I shouldn't have tried the beer from that buried treasure chest."

teachj said...

Wait. Wait. Wait. No, still not ready to start that yard work yet! Give me another five minutes. (or so!)

Tara R. said...

"When his days of pirate plundering were over, Capt. Jack Sparrow retires to Florida for a little peace and quite. Shovel in the ready for a little treasure hunting and a supply of grog by his side."

Kasey said...

Parched from a had day of work. Ed relaxed with a beer and his hoe.

Candid Carrie said...

Even the most inexperienced member of the Las Vegas Nevada CSI team knew there was something wrong immediately.

There only remaining question. Was it Gil Grissom or Sara Sidle?

Be sure to watch CBS this week to see the first episode of "CSI: Honeymoon" in which the unconventional teaming of former Newlywed Game Show host Bob Eubanks, along with previous innkeeper and long time comedian Bob Newhart join forces with the entire cast of A&E's Paranormal State. You will be mesmerized and terrorized as you watch this all-star cast attempt to reach the crime scene before the neighborhood dogs bury the evidence.

If the crime scene is disturbed by Nevada's canine criminals, there will be no choice but to have a cross-over episode with rival network NBC's newest Law and Order, Til Death Do We Part.

Betty said...

At last I can fit into my size zero below the waist jeans! Yeah, baby.

Eudae-Mamia said...

"After reading Ella Numera Una adventures, Lindsay Lohan decided to spend her Spring Break in Panama City as well."

Chatham said...

1)Of course you have to be dead to drink beer and still be skeleton skinny.

2)This place is so cool that I asked God to make it my heaven when I died.

Susie said...

Happy Blogoversary!! What a great accomplishment!

"Spring Break in Hades":-)

John Deere Mom said...

Upon arriving in Kentucky, Ed fit right in with the locals.

Marrdy said...

Congrats on one full year! You're one of my very favorite bloggers. (Still waiting for that book!)

Ok, for today:

"Ethel, stop nagging me. I'll be in when I'm Done!"

Leslie said...

He was last seen sitting on the lawn at the Hotel California.

Urban School Teacher said...

Repeat to self: "Size 0 is the new size 4."

Urban School Teacher said...

Ed knew his spade would come in handy at some point....

Urban School Teacher said...

Can you dig it?

Teri said...

Normally, losing a job can put a crimp in one's Spring Break plans. Charlie, however, decided to rise above and still find a way to enjoy a bare bones vacation.

"Marrowly we roll along"

Queenie Jeannie said...

Digging your own grave is thirsty work!

Carebear said...

They warned me that beer and hoes would be the death of me!

Robin said...

Michelle said...

Don't worry honey...I'll get to the weeding in just a minute.

Funny in my mind said...

"Whew, been a long year! Now I'm just resting my bones!"

Michelle said...

The All New Beer Die-t. So effective, even those size 0s don't fit.

Tracy P. said...

Up until now, Ed had always played a Sunday afternoon game of "Kick the Can" with the family, taken a breather, and then moved on to the yard work. On this particular week, however the game turned into "Kick the Bucket" as he breathed his last. The family felt that if he had waited just a few more minutes to give up the ghost, he might have spared them a little work...

Tracy P. said...

Oh, and congratulations on a whole year full of superior scribbles!! What a fun read you are!

Sam_I_am said...

I'm bad at these games, but I'll give it a shot

"Doctors recommend staying hydrated while working outdoors... Um, can we get him another beer?"

Brittany Ann said...

Maybe Lyle went a bit too far in his quest to prove to the neighborhood hoodlums that they must stop using his backyard as a booze-fest watering hole. But it worked, not one of those kids ever came back.

Dianna said...

No worries .... it's 5 o clock, somewhere!

Happy Sunday!

Shawn said...

"Ok,...sun hat---check.
Hoe----check.
Lots a beer----check.
Cool tee shirt---check.
Bones----check.
Pants....pants...pants......HANG ON! WHO THE FREAK TOOK MY PANTS?"

You're never too far gone to live it up.

*Will work for beer*

LadyStyx said...

Man, I dunno what it is, but this lite beer just goes right through me!

Z's Mom said...

Sun damage can be severely damaging to one's skin....just look what it did to Ed!

Aunt Julie said...

Totally wasted away in Margaritaville!

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Yo ho yo ho, a blogger's life for me. Who cares if I eat, who cares if I drink, I've got to write a post. Who cares if I ever get off of this chair, cause blogs I read the most!

Congrats on your blogoversary. Who, that's a lot of posts in a year. I'm impressed.

The Wife O Riley said...

Hemmingway thought all the cats would be good company at his place in Key West, until they tromped all over his garden and ate his face.

Congrats on your blogiversary!

Mister Teacher said...

I know that Hollywood has run out of original ideas, but Weekend at Bernie's Part 56?? Really? It's starting to get unbelievable...

Ed died as he always wished he had lived... Sitting in his favorite chair surrounded by booze and hoes.

The senior population in Florida might be getting out of hand.

Ed died before realizing what Blanche had tried to tell him: Bad Fashion WILL kill you.

Roxane said...

I can't help but think I need one of these to keep the neighborhood kids out of my yard...mine will need a fanny pack, because its the perfect accessory to go with that hat!

Nancy Flanagan said...

Too late to add a good one (but I vote for Carebear's "beer and hoes," being a fan of puns). I did want to congratulate you on your vigorous and healthy year-old blog, as one congratulates any mother on her baby. I'm at 2.2 years and counting, with just over 200 posts-- and hoping to see you on the blog playground a year from now. Scary how many people burn out in blog world. Keep on keepin' on.

Our Crazy Life said...

Come on baby, I promise I will still dig you, now go get me another beer, I am parched.

A little-remembered footnote to TV sitcom history: "Weekend At Bernie's--The Next Generation" was touted at one point as the next breakout show for the WB Network.

Andrew Shue, just off his run on Melrose Place, signed on to play Tony, the son of Larry who "inherits" Bernie's remains--tune in Tuesday night at 8:30 to see what happens when inheritance leads to hilarity! A comedy that's more than just bare bones!

Unfortunately, the viewing public didn't quite get the joke, and after receiving ratings even smaller than Bernie's decomposed wrists, the show was canceled after just three episodes. Jason Biggs and Tara Reid (Tony's younger brother Jerry and Jerry's girlfriend Becca, respectively) would later work together in the American Pie series, and Charlotte Rae had an appearance in the episode "What Thou Sow'st, Shalt Thou Reap," as a love interest whom Bernie had jilted long ago.

The above photo is a publicity still from late 1999.
