Anti-Blogfest Gary Fest and in Need of a Proofreader

Today is "Anti-Blogfest Gary Fest," a blog hop in honor of Mr. anti-blog hop himself, Gary at Klahanie.

Hosted by Mark “Madman” Koopmans, Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh, “Life is Good” Tina, Rockin’ Robyn Engel, and Morgan “The Morg” Shamy.

The rules are *very* simple.

Create the titles of three PG-13 rated blogfests you would never join - and then add a descriptive sentence or two. That's it!

For example:
Cheesecake & Cauliflower Bloghop - "where dinner and dessert is mixed in one dish."
Blocked up Toilet Blogfest - "where crap happens."
Alphapet Zoo-mbie Bloghop - "where cuddly undead toys learn how to spell."

The three blogfests I would never sign up for are:

Favorite Snowy Owl Recipes - Endangered never tasted so good.

Fondest Potty Training Memories - Learning to poo when I was two.

Teaching Dead Dogs New Tricks - Beyond roll over and play dead.


Special request!

Bish Denham at Random Thoughts needs a proofreader for her collection of retold Anansi stories. If you can help out Bish, pop over to her site and let her know.

Sabrina A. Fish said...

Now if it was Fondest Potty Training Memories-Mom's POV, I'd consider it. I have some doozies I could share! Heheheh!

Stephen Tremp said...

Number two is the first one I've come across that rhymes. Oh wait ... number two. I think I just made a funny. At least, I hope that's all I made.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Endangered never tasted so good - funny!

Sandra Orchard said...

LOL, I'm starting to think your second one might offer some comic relief now that I have a potty-training two-year-old visiting often--granddaughter. ;)

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

Too funny! Yeah, I don't see myself signing up for those either. :)

Jo said...

Funny girl. Loved your titles.

Karen Walker said...

yeah, I'm not doing any blogfests these days except ISWG, but this one looks like fun.

Trisha F said...

Oh gosh, definitely wouldn't sign up for those. Nice work L. Diane :)

M.L. Swift said...

Diane, you have a wicked sense of humor! I loved these.

I have a great Panda Steak recipe.

Timothy Hecht said...

I have attended at least 4 of those Blogfests you described and enjoyed them all thank you!

Liesel Hill said...

LOL. Great Anti-blogfests. I live with my 2-year-old niece who is currently potty training, so I might actually join that second one, just so I don't feel all alone with the poo stories. :D

Here are mine!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Stephen - LOL!

ML, great minds think alike.

Bish Denham said...

Oh, Diane! I about snorted cereal out my nose. Too funny! And thanks for the shout out.

Ida Chiavaro said...

If vomit stories counted in the number two anti-blogfest then thoughts of endangered animal dishes would be on that list.

Tina said...

Well done - bad blogfests! I especially love "poo when I was two"

Mark Means said...

Well, I -might- sign up for the owl blogfest..depending on how tasty the recipes were.. :D

Jay Noel said...

Ew! Yeah. I wouldn't sign up for any of those blogfests. Yuck.

Morgan said...

Ah-hahahaha!!!!! Diane, I am LAUGHING... seriously... that endangered one KILLED me... it's just so awful on so many levels, LOL!

Manzanita said...

Hahaha
Good ones. Especially the dead dog one.... almost like whipping the dead horse. (bad)

Hart Johnson said...

Oh dear... Yeah, not doing these, either. Too funny.

Al Diaz said...

LOL, those are blogfests I wouldn't join either.

Jennifer Shirk said...

Hilarious!!!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Diane .. potty training at my age? you must be joking - well perhaps not .. but succinct and relevant to being anti-Gary blog hops ..

Cheers Hilary

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Bish, what kind of cereal? Hopefully not Grape nuts. Hope you find a proofreader or two.

Mark, I'm sure there are a few tasty ones in the logger's handbook.

Morgan, I love animals, and that one would so not be on my list to join.

dead dogs that play dead... that sounds like an awesome book title!

The Blog-fest that make me want to say "NO"...

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Very fun idea. I wonder how many people would sign up out of curiosity to the owl one.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

For some twisted reason, I'm highly amused by bloggers' use of dead animals in this fest. Well played, Diane. Even here, you're able to sum it up in a succinct, clever way.

Cheers,
xoRobyn

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Those hops are a real no no.

Robin said...

Hilarious. You do know that anything with "poo" in the title will invariably make SOMEONE want to join. Not me, but someone.

michelle said...

A triple no-no to your batch of blogfests.
Interesting titles though...

Nancy LaRonda Johnson said...

So funny! I'd say if you could remember potty training when you were two, go on and blog hop about it, I may just be interested. :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Jeremy, 101 Uses for a Dead Dog?

Nancy, I don't even remember when I was 3.

Medeia Sharif said...

Ewwww. I'm glad I ate awhile ago.

Carol Kilgore said...

I'd never participate in those blogfests either LOL!

Julia King said...

These blog fests are killing me. Thanks for the chuckles!

Scribbles From Jenn said...

Those are AWESOME! I especially love where crap happens :D

Timothy Hecht said...

Here are my 3 blog I would never sign up for,,,maybe.

1) Beauty Pageant Ice Hockey Players blog. Where miss congeniality discusses her league leading penalty minutes.

2) Anthony Weiner photo contest blog. Anthony Weiner is funny.

3) How to install helicoils blog. Where you learn how to turn special screw drivers. zzzzzzzzzzzzz

Patricia Stoltey said...

Okay, those were fun -- I especially liked the dead dog blogfest. I wouldn't sign up for that one either. :D

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Funny! I wouldn't join any of them, but they DID make me laugh!

Denise Covey said...

Great imagination there L Diane. Not my idea of blogfests either.

Donna Hole said...

LOL; loved those titles :)

.......dhole

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Timothy, that first one is really funny.

Karen Lange said...

Great blogfest! Love your answers!

Michael Di Gesu said...

Hi, L. Diane,

Very interesting and DIFFERENT themes.... I enjoyed your examples too!

Mary Montague Sikes said...

Those are definitely blogfests I would not sign up for. Thanks for sharing!

Cherie Reich said...

LOL! Yes, three blogfests I wouldn't sign up for either. :)

cleemckenziebooks said...

I won't sign up for any of those Hops either, Diane. But they did make me laugh.

I'll help Bish.

E.J. Wesley said...

Okay, the 'Snowy Owl...' one had me LOL-ing. Well done! :D

klahanie said...

Hey Diane,

I know you've been anxiously waiting for one of my highly collectable comments. Maybe next time.

What a wonderful selection of non-choices. I almost give a hoot about the first one. The second one is number two. I cannot ever remember training a potty. A dead dog teaching me to play dead would almost get my attention.

Of course, I'd rather be whipped naked in the middle of town than join a blogfest. I know, it can be arranged.

Thanks for being part of the irony, Diane.

Gary :)

Ella said...

You are so fun! My dad use to tell people they were eating BBQ Owl..he was something-lol!

DMS said...

These were hilarious! I bet some parents would have some funny stories for the potty training blog hop. Loved the titles!
~Jess

Mark Koopmans said...

Ha! I'm still working my way through the Fest that keeps on giving :)

These are definitely in my top 6,732... (possibly all the way in the top three :)

Thanks for participating and don't ever let Wesley the Owl ever see #1 :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

EJ, I'm from Oregon, so that one came easy.

Gary, be careful what you wish for.

Sherry Ellis said...

Those are funny! I wonder if my dog would benefit from the last one. ;)

Romance Reader said...

Very missable blogfests!
