Happy Birthday, Mon Ami

birthday cakeToday is a very special day. On this day in 1996, the now-defunct Montreal Expos thrashed the Colorado Rockies 21-9 at Coors Field. If that isn’t incredible enough, on this day in 1789, the crew of the British ship Bounty mutinied, setting Captain William Bligh and 18 sailors adrift in a launch in the South Pacific. And perhaps most incredibly, on this day back when men were men and sheep were scared, the King Of Puns was born.

That’s right, our pal Dufus is having a birthday today! CheesyMike and I wanted to do something really special our very punny friend. I found a book on puns that I thought would be two meaningful. But then CheesyMike pointed out that a pun can be made on any subject except a king who isn’t a subject. So we moved away from puns. Did you know that seven days without a pun makes one weak? It does. Which explains how and why we ended up doing what we did.


Look, what can we say? We’re bloggers, not videographers!  But despite our obvious lack of talent, we love you Dufus and hope you have a wonderful birthday! And remember, pastry chefs know that old age crepes up on you! So stock up on maple syrup.

We are far from the only ones wanting to celebrate this grand occasion! To see who else is paying tribute the His Royal Highness of Puns, please visit Cheryl over at Deckside Thoughts.

  • Sure, sure, it’s all about you. But thanks for the birthday wishes anyway guys. These posts today are just blowing me away. Nicely done.

  • You guys totally rocked that video! (Nice job with the puns too.)

  • Born in a windmill? Everybody keeps asking if I was born in a barn. A windmill would be so much cooler! I know what this video is really all about… you just don’t want us to know where you live. Because Cheryl told us the surprise party for Dufus was going to be at your house.

  • Ha ha! Watched that twice. A windmill? Ha ha!

  • Ohhhh my god, I am laughing my ass off here!! Monty Python themselves couldn’t have done it better. Oh, wait… Nevermind.

    You are so pretty, I want to just get on a plane and come follow you around with a camera all day long.

  • I totally agree with Babs…I had to watch it a couple of times…you are totally great videographers. HILARIOUS!!!! Or should we not be laughing at the sad fact you were born in a windmill??

  • Is that windmill on one of those cute putt-putt golf courses? That would explain alot about you, Nicky…as for CheesyMike…no clue…

  • Quirky Loon

    Ha! I’ll never look at a windmill the same way again. Not that I get much occasion to view windmills. But let’s not get picky, shall we?

  • MikeWJ

    That’s priceless. I’m laughing. Really laughing. Brilliant. Deserves an Oscar.

  • You are too kind. Did my mother talk to you too? 🙂

  • It doesn’t matter if you only see them occasionally. It’s enough for me to know that when you do, you’ll think of me. And laugh at me. Sigh. 🙂

  • It is actually NOT a putt-putt windmill. And how does it explain a lot about me? Although I completely agree with you about CheesyMike…

  • Oh, no, Cheryl, you should definitely be laughing at me regardless of where I was born 🙂

  • I love you. 🙂

  • While I have to give credit to CheesyMike for most of this video, the windmill was my idea. Of course. 🙂

  • Boom Boom, ALL of you are welcome at my house anytime. Just call first so I can make sure to be home. It would be awful if you all came over and I was hiding out, I mean, out someplace else. Awful, I tell you. 🙂

  • Thank you Cheryl! *curtsies and falls over*

  • Our pleasure Dufus. We hope you enjoyed your party and had a wonderful day!

  • There’s a lot of that going around these days. Get up. woman. We’ve got P.J.’s April challenge up next. Gawd help us all.

  • No, he means it. Someone has finally recognized me for my skills as a director.

  • Happy B-day, D. We hope you had as much fun on your birthday as we had putting this mess together!

  • A windmill? Really? It grinds flour, it doesn’t churn cheese (hmm … then again … two birds? … and a baby?)

    But I’m all for crepes … old or Jung … yum.


    P.S. You have great cuticles, CheesyMike.

  • Well. Despite the fact of not being able to understand most of it (all that foreign language stuff), I was quite amused by the walk and finding out Nicky has a potty mouth, Mike speaks, and that there’s a windmill in Canada.

  • I loved the twist at the end. I was totally surprised by the “born in the windmill angle.”

  • Nicky!! I love this video! I honestly can’t stop laughing!

    “Fine, fuck you!”

    Also, I seriously love your hair.

    And of course, Happy Birthday, John!!!

  • Dozo! I’ve missed that cute little feline avatar of yours! Yes, windmill. No, not really. 🙂

  • Foreign language stuff? What foreign language stuff? CheesyMike and I were speaking Canadian 🙂

    And yes, Nicky has a potty mouth. But in her defense, this time it was CheesyMike’s fault ’cause he was the director.

  • The skit was actually inspired by a Monty Python sketch that takes places, at the end, somewhere in the French countryside with a charming old-style French cottage. So, we went with the next best thing: a windmill. 🙂

  • 🙂 That makes me very happy.

  • xoxo

  • OHHHHH MYYYYYY GAWWWWWWWDDDDDDDDD I AM DYING!!! I am DYING!!! DYINGGGGGGGG!!!!!! That was the funniest thing I have EVER SEEN!!!! You telling him to come on come on… the pee smell, the DQ…. all the way to the FUCK YOU! I AM DYING!!!! You guys are BRILLIANT. BRILLIANT I tell you! And you may deer are DROP DEAD GORGEOUS. What a treat to watch this… you WIN!

    P.S. You drink from the same straw? Better get some antibiotics STAT!

  • Ah, Dozo, it must be that movie magic because in reality, my cuticles look like crap. Not like I pay attention to them or anything. You know, being a guy and all. Also, what’s a cuticle?

  • Hihihihi, glad you enjoyed it so much, Katherine and thank you for the compliments… even if they aren’t true!

    P.S. Did you actually see CheesyMike take a sip? 🙂

  • Hey Nicky,

    This is brilliant…you know what the Brit’s say. Brilliant.

  • Hugh! Thanks for visiting and for the compliment! (I’m sure you now understand why I’m not trying to get anything published!! 🙂 )
