Pyro's... in... SPAAAAAAAACE (and other unrelated cool things)

And so, without further eloquence:
  1. I challenge anyone to source what my title riffs off of. To dangle a preposition. Anyone except my son Matthew.
  2. And then after that, I challenge anyone (again, other than Matthew) to source the first line of this post without Googling. And, having said that....
  3. Look at this cool thing: Pyromaniacs (where I team-blog) has gone into outer space!

    Isn't that cool? Read more about it here.

  4. Phil's Blogspotting post leads me to this fun-read series by Nathan Casebolt. Which leads me to...
  5. This site recommended by James White, for use in responding to Islam.
  6. Hinnsdays are back! With the return of "Father Brown" to blogging, I can look forward to a little midweek lift once again.

"Pyro's... in... SPAAAAAAAACE" = Pigs in Space sci-fi parody sketch on The Muppet Show.

:o)

Do I win a prize? I should win a prize. I'm sick and missed church today only to be edified by your blog.

I definitely deserve a prize.

DJP said...

Wow. That was fast.

Since I don't peddle...er... offer fine goods on my site like some people, I don't have much to offer in prizes....

But you certainly do win my respect, as a person of refined tastes and culture!

Kim said...

ahhh! Carla beat me to it! I knew it immediately!

So, do I get your respect as a person of refined taste and culture, or will I just be tolerated?

Carla said...

Imagine the nerve of some folks brother Booyah, actually peddling products via their sites.

Why, I just can't imagine it!

Kim: I've seen you eat chips, play badminton AND make your kids behave with a look... you have my respect as a person of refined taste and culture.

:o)

DJP said...

Kim -- both!

Pigs in Space, from the Muppet Show?
(And for the record, I did not read other comments before writing this, in case it has already been said.)

Daniel said...

I also got the Pigs in space reference immediately. I almost made an abbreviation with the Acronym, but thought better of it.

DJP said...

Wow -- so everyone gets my first challenge! I'm surprised, and impressed.

But NOBODY gets challenge #2!

Bwahhhh hahahaha!

Kim said...

Well, are you going to leave us hanging with regard to number two?

Carla said...

I didn't get challenge #2. I even cheated but found some goofy sports reference.

shrugs

DJP said...

I guess you're right, I've given it long enough.

It's from a delightful movie you all should see, if you haven't. "The Quiet Man," reportedly John Wayne's favorite, with Maureen O'Hara. Guys or gals, you'll love it, and find yourself quoting bits from here and there.

Kim said...

Is that the movie where the song "Tenneseee Waltz" is played?

DJP said...

I'm pretty sure not. It's set in Ireland. Absolutely charming; get it, make Buggy watch it with you. You'll both love it.

DJP said...

BTW, my wife Valerie gets the credit for putting me on to the Quiet Man, long a favorite of hers before we met; and she too would have IDed that line immediately.

jeff said...

Ah, The Quiet Man. Great flick. My favorite John Wayne movie by far (followed by Chisum, El Dorado, and Rio Bravo). The fight with Squire Dannahur (sp?) is a classic, especially the break in the middle for "one of them dark beers."

Dan, remember, "no patty fingers."

DJP said...

It is truly great. I think that John Wayne may be the most underrated actor, ever. No, he didn't have infinite range -- but this popular notion that he just played himself, or 2-D characters, is just a fiction. You see it in Quiet Man.

i thought "pigs in space" as well...

however, the more surprising issue was that josh harris' cousin is in space!
