kate5kiwis: "... maybe i'll get a gold tooth... start calling everybody 'DOG'..." (guess the movie line)


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

"... maybe i'll get a gold tooth... start calling everybody 'DOG'..." (guess the movie line)

it was about fifteen years ago that Bulldog acquired his nickname of... Bulldog. he was teaching at what he still affectionately calls The Best School In The Country and hanging out with a tall lanky NZ volleyball teamster who went by the nickname of "Whippet" and his other sidekick - who was in the Bachelors Forever Club - a rather unkempt fellow, christened "Pigdog".

Bulldog has always had cutesy chubby cheeks - he was often mistaken for a student during his early years of teaching - and in honour of his jowls, the name "Bulldog" stuck.

fast-forward to yesterday - an adorable friend popped in with a *surprise* for moi - a CHOCOLATE brown tshirt with this on the back:

how cool is *that*?
yeah. love it.
it's from this iconic establishment:

been there. done that. got the tshirt!
(i've always wanted to say that and really mean it lol)

oh, and on the topic of all things kiwi and iconic, i can't find Jemaine raving about the J-Dog, but Bulldog just showed me this other wee snippet on youtube -

uh *warning* it's voirrry koiwoi (and please pardon the odd dodgy word) but it's a great giggle at fush'n'chups and vudgemoite samwidges Down Under.
so go watch it asap, bro.
ohk there's no vudgemoite samwidges and the J-Dog leaves it for DEAD. on second thoughts, *don't* go watch it asap, bro.

LOL! That video clip is iconic in our house! I think every new person who walks thru the door gets asked if they've seen (well actually only those who would appreciate the humour). Loveing that t-shirt too!
Hope life is cruising at your place.

HA! the reason we nutters think that this "beached as... sausaged as..." clip is SO BLIMMIN' FUNNY is cos BULLDOG ACTUALLY TALKS LIKE THIS!!!!
yep, no jokes, he comes home from a day at skool thinkin' he's a HOMEY, bro - all his vowels are koiwoi-fied and every two words are punctuated by "BRO".
and he's got da moooves on too, bro.

I can see I'm going to need some practice speaking and understanding Kiwi talk before I visit.

I plan to sprinkle my language with "beached as" and "bro" and koikoi-fied vowels when we get to Arkansas. They'll think that's how we talk in Virginia. :)
