The Following Photo May be Disturbing to Some Readers … heh.

Friday’s have become a bit of a playground around here at The Art of Doing Stuff.  A day for ridiculousness.  ‘Cause we all need a bit of ridiculousness in our lives.  Unless that ridiculousness comes in the form of  Rob Schneider.  Or harem pants.   That kind of ridiculous we can do without.  At least I can.

Today is Caption This day on The Art of Doing Stuff.

I would  like for you to take a look at the following photo and then think up a caption for it.  I think it’s best if I don’t provide you with any background on the photo because I don’t want to influence your caption at all.  Suffice it to say this is a bit of a departure for me, and the following photo may be disturbing to some readers.

Viewer Discretion is advised.






Caption This …





Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Best caption as judged by me, the fella, a random stranger, my cats and a ball of dryer lint … wins an Art of Doing Stuff tea towel!




Captions accepted until Sunday, April 29th at midnight.

Have a good weekend!

    When Karen regained consciousness, she realized that she did not leave her reading glasses downstairs after all.

  3. sara says:

    i’d push you down the stairs too if you came to bed wearing that.

  4. Ginny says:

    This is what happens when you try to avoid stepping on the cat on the stairs in your socks. Thanks for letting us know which way the little bugger went.

    PS Where did you get your jammies? I want a pair.

  5. Tina says:

    Karen to Fella: I have no idea what the hell you are talking about, the molding looks level to me even at this angle. Get down here and look for yourself if you don’t believe me or just “suck it”.

  7. beverly h says:

    OK. Now, roll the video backwards…

  8. Judy D. says:

    The fella’s snoring drives me “out of my mind.”

  9. Elise says:

    Good God, Lemon!

  10. Mary says:

    Karen would try anything for a (OHIP covered) massage.

  11. Heather says:

    This is what you call black out Friday, when your so freakin excited to save money you run outta bed and fall down the stairs!!

  12. Mare says:

    P.A. #24
    “Zombie Apocalypse – be ready to run.”

  13. missnicoleo says:

    The art of doing klutz.

  14. Sevi says:

    Fella:”I’ve decided to run another marathon again”
    Karen:”Just a second. I need a quick suicide”

  15. Sara S. says:

    Karen should have realized long before her readers suggested “Stair Sock Surfing” that saying “I’ll figure it out” to a bunch of loonies was a BAD idea!

  16. Mandy Y says:

    ‘I am the stair MASTER!’ (said in best Donkey voice)

  17. Cathy says:

    Um mm guess I should not try and polka down the stairs after a long morning of brown bottle wrestling.

  18. Marie Peters says:

    How many ways do I have to tell you, it went that way…

  19. Melanie says:

    Oh my gosh, I got a wedgie!

  20. Amanda says:

    Fella: “Hey Karen I learned this new “Crossfit” exercise that we can do at home do you want to try it with me?”

    Karen: “NOOOO(thump)OOOOO(thump)OOOOO(thump)OOOOO

  21. Rachel White says:

    “FELLA! I fell down the stairs again! No, no, no don’t help me up! Go get the camera!”

  22. Tris says:

    …at this point, Karen realized that even though her body builder jammies usually made her invincible, they had one weak point. They could not protect her from the dreaded slippery socks on stairs monster. (cue ominous music) Bom Bom Boooooooom!

  23. Allison says:

    What “The Shining” would have looked like if Johnny was trying to master photoshop instead of writing a novel.

  24. Evie says:

    “Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”

    (old TV commercial reference there… LifeCall! hahaha)

  25. Chris v says:

    OMG have you SEEN what’s down here???

  26. Christina B says:

    ” Yep, I forgot to dust this baseboard!”

  27. Caro says:

    Clearly this doesn’t need a caption – haven’t any of you heard of ‘Stair Twister’?

    Seriously, in the background I can just picture the fella: “right hand – baseboard”

    (‘Stair Twister’ soon to be trademarked by Hasbro)

    • T.D. says:

      Hysterically snort-laughing in a library quite office. I guess without a memo, you’ll never be able to tell it’s here FRIDAY e.v.e.r.

  28. OMG I am so laughing at all the comments.

  29. Diane T says:

    My God, these pyjamas TASTE good!

  30. Emmy says:

    Now kiddies, don’t try this at home… Ummm… Ooops!

  31. Pam G. says:

    So much for my rendition of Zou Bisou Bisou…

  32. Katie Morgan says:

    I fell…….and was sober.

  33. Erin Q. says:

    Though casual Friday at the contortionists’s club could never involve jeans due to their constricting nature, the Board of Directors never dreamed the acrobat would show up wearing pyjamas. Perhaps a revision in policy was in order.

  34. Bethany says:

    After only two classes at the local YMCA, an over-ambitious Karen attempts the classic Yoga move, “The Slinky”, and discovers why it’s not on the beginner’s roster.

  35. Shannon V. says:

    “I KNEW I ‘shoulda’ made that left ‘toin’ in ‘Albakoikie'”

    ***In my best Bugs Bunny***

  36. gloria says:

    In a diabolical assassination attempt, and planning to set up a junta regime, Karen’s cats have eaten the rubber nubbies off the bottoms of her no-skid slipper socks.

  37. Emmy says:

    My mother was right, you should never EVER run down the stairs in socks! Ouch.

  38. misskher says:

    Karen attempts the lesser known “toot central” yoga pose.

  39. stargazyrr says:

    Some people choose to do everything the hard way.

  40. Alene says:

    “This is a public service announcement from the Coffee Council.”

    I’ve been stalking your blog for a while now. Thanks for making whatever beverage I’m drinking come out of my nose. . . on more than one occasion!

    • Bethkay says:

      You said it! I posted a link to the Bogs gveaway on my blog and that’s what I said about Karen – she is snort-pop-out-your-nose funny!! (pop is soda for al you southerners ;0)

  41. Tanya Stewart says:

    The fella tried to warned her, but….unconvinced and after ” one too many ” Karen decided to try waxing the staircase with her brilliant handmade beeswax-coated socks. ( all was not lost…as her feet were an blissfully smooth for weeks afterwards….quite a success,really….so suck it, fella. )

  42. gloria says:

    A breech baby, Karen continues to have her own way of climbing stairs.

    • paula says:

      Gloria, are you a stand up comic? I think a comedy blog is in order…

      • gloria says:

        Actually…well no, stand-up would have me hurling in my hat, I would be way too nervous. But I did write a humor column for many years for the newspaper. These days I keep a blog just to archive some of my old columns. (hence the reason I haven’t posted anything to it since Moses was a boy.)

        • Diane says:

          Gloria, What’s your blog called?

        • gloria says:

          Diane, it’s called My Front Porch, because that’s where I started writing the column many years ago, same name I used in the newspaper, too. I just kept the name going on the blog, even when I started doing my writing in the house on one of those new-fangled computer contraptions instead of a yellow legal pad and a Ticonderoga No.2. Think the last archive post was in 2009. Yikes,I really ought to put some more columns up, eh, Karen :)

        • Karen says:

          LOL. Indeed you should. ;) ~ karen

    • michelle says:

      um… favorite. :)

  43. gloria says:

    Karen is determined to save electricity and reduce her carbon footprint by ingesting her milk shake ingredients then throwing herself down a series of stairs.

  44. vaughn says:

    We were unprepared when the earth’s magnetic poles shifted.

    (and I’m hoping it was staged and not a reproduction of a fall) =O

  45. Lynne says:

    I have three: It seems some people can fall asleep just about

    Is this the result of wearing black socks with
    musclemen pajamas ?

    Is Stair Yoga on the cusp of replacing Hot Yoga ?

    Cheers !!

  46. Kate says:

    I think I left it right…over…here.

  47. Lynne says:

    Margaritas and break dancing – sounded like a good idea at the time!
