"GaryFest" & HAPPY 802nd BIRTHDAY, Father Dragon :)

Aloha,



Alongside my co-hosts, I am so happy to help kickoff the Anti-Blogfest that will forever live on as "GaryFest."
 
Using several tongues in cheeks, we've designed this event as a blog hop to honor Mr. anti-blog hop himself, our Gary at Klahanie.
 
"GaryFest" is hosted by:
 
 
The one rule was *very* simple:
 
1. Create the titles of three PG-13 rated blogfests you would never join - and then add a descriptive sentence or two.
 
For example, would you sign up for the Blocked up Toilet Blogfest - "where crap happens" ???

So, without further use of the loo...

(Rips open cheesy, oversized looking envelope with some nasty blue wax on one end...)
 
...Here then are my three offerings to Blog Hops I would never join.

Evah.



The Open Wound Blog Fest (where scabs tweet their followers to, "Pick me, pick me.")

The He-Ain't-Heavy, He's my Shoplifting-Brother Blog Hop (where Toys 'R' Theirs - until they get busted in the parking lot.)

The Pithy Party Blog Fest (where everyone sits around, all subdued and depressed because no one can think to say anything with substance and point.)


I am soooo looking forward to reading your entries, so THANKS for participating :)


#########


On a different note, I wanted to (in case you hadn't heard) remind folks and offer a belated Happy 802nd Birthday to our friend, Father Dragon.

Al was kind enough to include me as a "special guest" and I wanted to share his artist's rendition of me on an Oirish dance floor:)


Cheers, Al and all I can say is: "Mi amigo, usted es una estrella de rock" :)

Al's party was awesome! Too bad your clone's shiny head melted the clone machine. Once again, I have the only one!
The He-Ain't-Heavy one is great!

Vidya Sury said...

Hi Mark! This is so delightful! :-) I am closely following all those involved in the GaryFest! :-)

S.P. Bowers said...

Every one needs a clone. Think of how much writing I could get done if I had a clone to do all the cleaning.

Stephen Tremp said...

The Open Wound Blogfest? That will compete with the My Nose is Bigger Than Your Nose Blogfest. Both cry out, "Puck me. Pick me."

Sabrina A. Fish said...

Howdy, Mark! *waved* I didn't have my contribution for today's blogfest up yet, for which I hope you'll forgive me!
The Open Wound BlogFest would be one of those "I've gotta see it even though I know it'll be disgusting" things. The Pithy Party, I'd avoid at all costs. I'm surrounded by enough empty headed fools without signing up to purposely join more!

Great blogfest idea!!!

Suzi said...

Um, ewww to your #1. I'll pass on that too.

Trisha F said...

Your blogfest ideas made me want to run screaming, so I'd say you've made a successful submission for the blogfest. haha.

M.L. Swift said...

Loved them, Mark! Isn't it true that all the shoplifters at TRU seem to get busted in the parking lot. They thought they were home free!

Liesel Hill said...

Great blogfests! The first two especially made me laugh! :D

Here are mine!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Pithy Party - LOL!!

BECKY said...

Hey Mark! Pick Me?! Ewww! But, funny! I'll have to think a bit to see what, if anything, I can come up with for your blogfest! Thanks for a laugh...and a Ewwww this morning! :)

Al Diaz said...

Eww with the Wound Blogfest idea. Hahaha, you really made me laugh.
I can hear the Oirish accent in your Spanish. Extraordinary!!!
Amiguito, muchas gracias. Me alegro que te guste tu clon. ;)

Manzanita said...

No no no... never join any of yours although the pithy party might have possibilities.

Tina said...

Good anti-fests there! This is going to be a fun day!

Huntress, aka CD Coffelt said...

Oh, my sides, my sides *still laughing*

You and Alex, neck and neck, approaching the finish line.

Ida Chiavaro said...

yeh nah! wouldn't dream of joining any of those, but if they had a 25 words or less limit I might check some of the posts out...

Mark Means said...

BOL! ;)

Loved the "Open Sore Hop"...great job and thanks for hosting, Monty! :)

Mark Means said...

Oh, I meant to stutter here, then figured I shouldn't make fun of other's (digital) speech impediments :P

Libby said...

Enjoy your anti fest!!!

Bish Denham said...

Too funny! For the Pithy Party I picture a bunch of stodgy old men smoking cigars and snuttering in their beards as they sip their drinks.

Morgan said...

Ewwwww!!!! You went there!!!! "Pick me, pick me" ... Dyyyyying... *shudders*

And hahaha... Mark, I want to know where you've seen nasty blue wax before... do cheesy oversized envelopes usually have nasty blue wax on them??? LOL!

Totally laughing. You are the king of wit. Love it.

(And thanks for being the mastermind behind this whole thing. I don't know how you come up with this brilliant stuff...)

:D

Mina Lobo said...

ROTFL, "Pick me, pick me!" :-D

Hart Johnson said...

Ha! Nice choices on blogfests you wouldn't join!

Meradeth Houston said...

lol, Pithy Party--that's perfection! Love this non-blog-hop! :)

Beverly Fox said...

Sorry for the technical issues before- mine are up now.

I think my fave is the Pithy Party blog hop.

And happy belated birthday to father Al!

Hi Mark - those are great anti-Gary-blog fest .. and I'd avoid them at all costs ...

I wished Al happy 802 and I hope he hasn't turned 803 by now - at that age .. the years rush by ..

Cheers to you .. and great thoughts here .. Hilary

Samantha Jones said...

I knew there was a good reason to avoid twitter *ahem, hands over a tissue* These were great, Mark!

Debra McKellan said...

I feel like I'm constantly in a pithy party. lol

Is that how you say Rockstar in Spanish? Awesome. hehe

Gwen Gardner said...

I'm loving the Gary-Fest entries so much! You guys are hilarious. "where crap happens" LOL! Thanks for the Monday morning laugh :)

klahanie said...

Yo n'stuff, Sir Mazza,

The Blogged-up Toilet Blogfest would be added crap, me thinks.

Love the way you think out of the blog, dude. I shall be tweeting your Scabfest. Hope it doesn't open old wounds.

Was that you I saw in the car park, um parking lot?

The third one is actually tempting. Nothing like a bit of awkward silence :) Forgot what I was going to say.....

Oh yeah, gosh and thanks for the irony :)

The dragon's birthday has been all over 'Farcebook'. With one mighty breath, the dragon lit 802 candles...

Your dumbstruck fan,

Gary...........

michelle said...

Open Wound blogfest? Ewwww, tweeting scabs! LOL
Love your brand of humour, Mark!
Thanks for hosting the blogfest!

"He Ain't Heavy, He's My Shoplifting Brother" <-priceless! You have a great sense of humor, Mark to go along with your golden heart. Thank you. It was a pleasure and an honor to co-host with you.

Smiles,

Nancy LaRonda Johnson said...

The last one I do on my own sometimes! Thanks for the heads up on the birthday boy. Great blog hop. :)

Elephant's Child said...

Thank you for honouring the lovely Gary.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Gee, bloggers are going all out in pursuit of the best/worst ideas in honor of Gary. "Open wounds" may just about take the prize, though, for the most disgusting. Way to go, dude!

Thanks for concocting the plans for this fest. Great idea!

I.B. Nosey said...

The Pithy Party. Yeah, I was asked to host that, you know. Except that I entered the wrong door and wound up at The Pity Party.

Bad blogs, dude. Bad, real baaadddd!

Julia King said...

Oh, Mark, those blog fests cracked me up. Seriously. LOL Thanks for the chuckles.

And I appreciate you commenting on Sara's post today about my book. You are awesome!

Donna K. Weaver said...

Those are ... great. Definitely not ones I'd join either. lol

The Words Crafter said...

EEEEWWWW, that first one would have fit right in with mine. Inspired by some young Mini-Marks, perhaps?

Fun choices and the Oirish you reminds me of Aang from Avatar, The Last Airbender :D

Empty Nest Insider said...

These were all great, but the "pithy party" is my favorite! Thanks for hosting this wonderful Gary Fest Mark!

Julie

Donna Hole said...

Very funny ;) loved the O'orish flag.

.....dhole

Elizabeth Seckman said...

what a great idea to honor (plague) Gary with some fun. And sweet that you reminded everyone of Al's birthday. I mean a guy only turns 802 once, right?

Michael Di Gesu said...

ALOHA, MARK!

Thanks for hosting! There are so pretty freaky entires out there. LOL,

Liked your choices... And great illustration of you!

Father Dragon... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Al is so a kind soul!

cleemckenziebooks said...

I just attended one of those parties! Why didn't you warn me earlier?

Leigh Covington said...

Been seeing some hilarious ideas for a blogfest! Brilliant idea on this!

Ella said...

Cheers Mark! My Irish eyes are laughing n' smiling over your blog wit! :D

I love Al's interpretation of you~
YOU are a lucky charm!

Off to wish Al a Happy Birthday!

Yolanda Renee said...

Sooooo funny - even the pithy party, but celebrating the Dragon awesome!

Congrats of the invite - great likeness!

Melissa said...

Hahaha
The loo seems to be a popular topic. Glad you didn't go there. :P

Great entry! :D

Damyanti said...

This one set me laughing. Still enjoying this blogfest !

Melanie Fowler said...

Mark... all I can say is... very creative!

As a vegetarian, I would rather eat Spam!
