- 1. A country
can be judged by the quality of its proverbs.
In an effort to get revenge, ease his guilt, I convinced the Captain to let me do the meme FOR him. Heh. I mean, hey, what a great idea! Except, once I started, I realized that unless I wanted to be a complete snarky jerk (not outside the realm of possibility), it wasn't really going to be very easy. SO I decided to go with what I know about my pal, Captain Dumbass. First, and foremost, he is a Canadian. Got that one covered above.
2. Next? The Cap'n loves to read about as much as I do...
- Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them. Arnold Lobel
3. The Captain, and his lovely wife, Supreme Leader, have two terror-inducing wonderful boys, and by this summer, will have a third...
By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong. Charles Wadsworth
- The stories the Captain tells us about Connor and Liam (frequently with photographic evidence) make me wonder if his mother put that curse on him. You know the one. "I only hope that someday you have a child who behaves just like you." Don't all mothers do that? I'm sure I've already placed that particular bane on my children's heads.
Getting fired is nature's way to telling you that you had the wrong job in the first place.
If you haven't read any of Captain Dumbass' fiction, either what he has linked in the sidebar (Empire of Me), or his amazing short stories on the Zombie News Network you really are missing a treat. The Captain was not meant to tote gold bars around for a bank. The man is a writer. Simple and true.
5. I'd like to say that the Captain is all sweetness and light, but really, don't we all have a darker side?
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.
Captain's darker side just happens to feature grilled cheese men and LEGO minions. He is the master of his own weird little universe.
