Expensive Hair Gels Are a Con

Marmalade is a much cheaper alternative!

We could live with this kind of dandy ruff, Frank!

  2. I agree!: Beep!

  3. Le beep! Tres chic!

  4. Beep out!

  5. Me: BOOP!

    Goggie: *plink, plink*

  6. victoreia says:

    But can you match your marmalade to your hair color?

  7. If you want a colourless version, try pablum. And don’t ask me how I know this.

  8. Okay, I’m not askin’…..

  9. StormCat42 says:

    *Sits pondering*
    Nope, gotta ask… HOW do you know this? *eyes Wend warily*

  10. *Googles “pablum”*

    *still doesn’t get it*

  11. Pablum is a name brand rice cereal, aka, first solid food for babies.
    They love it… and they love to share… but they don’t have very good aim :) By the time I had the kitchen cleaned up, my hair was cement hard. :shock: i think it took three days to get it all out of my shoulder length hair. *shudders*

  12. janet2buns says:

    Ah, Pablum. Renders everything hard and crusty. I don’t miss it a bit!

  13. Princess of Insolence says:

    Marmalade! Genius! Why didn’t I think of that? I could have saved a proverbial fortune on product!

  14. Mary (the first) says:

    He looks a little unhappy. I’d like to cuddle/dry him and make him all happy again!

  15. He definitely does look miserable. I don’t think our Karma ever REALLY enjoys her bath. But is fun taking pictures of her looking like a little skinny mop. LOL. Cute!

  16. Marmalade. For those hair days when you need both hold AND texture! :)

    And by the way, EVERYTHING about this puppy is adorable–from the floppy ears to the 3 black buttons for eyes and nose to the hilariously expressive mouth. Love love love this little guy.

  17. soxfan413 says:

    Yes, the 3 black buttons, especially. LOVE this pup! It’s a nicely symmetrical picture too…

  18. I’m in the moderation lounge, eating marmalade…

  19. 260Oakley says:

    Forget marmalade. Tame those locks with a dab of chocolate mousse (work it through with a honey comb).

  22. Paddington?

  23. skippymom says:

    Hey, Paddington is on tour right now, trying to boost sales of marmalade. Apparently his gig with Marmite a few years ago didn’t go so well. And yes, I just now learned these important facts from the intertubes.

  24. (The Original) Mel says:

    I love Marmite. Mmmmmm.

  25. Mary (the first) says:

    Me too.. on hot buttered toast.. yum

  26. Oh yeahhhhh! I like to add a couple of Hayward’s original onions on the side for the crunch factor. Mmmmmmmmm! :-)

  27. skippymom says:

    “Dandy ruff”! I just got it!

  28. I often wear marmalade when I have jam sessions.

  29. 260Oakley says:

    Bet it preserves your look.

  30. 206Oakley, I toast your wit!

  31. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee———-

  32. muttluver says:

    Y’all’re just a buncha crackers.

  33. *snerk*

  34. baileysgrandmom says:

    Would that toast come with marmite or marmalade?

  35. THAT RIGHT THERE is why they call turning down a page corner dog-ear-ing

    ded from the whole pup, but it’s the teeny flops that’ve dun me in!

  36. Ya I know me too, the ear flops, totally!!

  37. I also like the ear flop shadows. :)

  38. baileysgrandmom says:

    And, according to Alex Trebek yesterday, the expression “dog-ear” has been in use since 1659. At least, I THINK they said 1659–might have misremembered it. After all, I have slept since then.

  39. baileysgrandmom says:

    Oh, yeah, and LOVE LOVE LOVE the orange pupalade!

  40. yes! I remember that question too! it led me to daydreaming of a used book shop named Dog-Ears or The Dog’s Ear or something like that, and having plenty of beasties running around inside for patrons to skritch at their ears…
    *whew, that was a ramble!*

  41. *whining* I wanna come to your book store…

  42. slept?! i guess we have you to thank when the computer world domination is complete.

  43. April's NaNa says:

    Le pooch looks so sweet..but 260Oakley wins again….:-)

  44. TrixandSam says:

    I dunno… ScooterB got my vote this time.

  45. I hope you peeps are happy. Now I have a craving for toast, and ginger marmalade.

  46. Care for a cuppa with that? I have peppermint herbal!

  47. *Dancing for joy*

  48. OK! Now I’m happy, too. :)

  49. April's NaNa says:

    Yeah, you are right, Scooter’s was “spot on” as well!

  50. Please get a load of the little war shadows behind the pup! Completely ridiculous. Ha.

  51. Oops! Of course I meant to say Ear shadows. :roll:

  52. StormCat42 says:

    LOL Nikki, I was sitting here, looking at the pic thinking “WAR shadows? I don’t get it…Maybe there was an addition to the Qte dictionary that I missed? *pout*”

    Then I scrolled down and got your correction and had to laugh out loud…(while attempting NOT to spray my coffee on the monitor)

  53. Ah the joys of auto-correct on the iPhone…

  54. muttluver says:


  55. StormCat42 says:

    I agree, Muttluver! He has this look that says “Yes, Mom, take the pic… THEN can we get this stuff off me, pwease?” LOL

  56. Ear flopitude has done me in!

  57. Looks like a mug shot after a wild night out

  58. Mug shot was EXACTLY what I was thinking. Nicely posed.

  59. I know a girl who reminds me of Cher
    She’s always changing
    The color of her hair
    She don’t use nothing
    That you buy at the store
    She likes her hair to be real orange
    She uses tangerines (Marmalade)

  60. Does he remind anyone else of a mini-Ribsy?

  61. Oooh, is there Ladies’ Marmalade, ya know, for the ladies? My root booster is kinda expensive. If there’s a women’s line of products, maybe I could replace it!

  62. I can’t not post the song, now can I?

  63. Gah! Not right!

  64. Ok, got it right that time.

  65. Or not. :roll:

  66. Gah! I give up! :evil:

  67. 260Oakely says:

    I just thought of something: why does this pup need any kind of “product” in his hair? I thought dogs were supposed to provide unconditioner love.

  68. Are you an impostor? Or did you change the spelling of your name?
    *is confused*

  69. You know it’s time to go home when you spell your own name incorrectly. {head desk}

  70. if i didn’t even notice, does that mean i have to go home?

  71. Yes. And have a cookie when you get there.

  72. Oh Sharpley, stop kidding. :mrgreen:

  73. what’s happening? who goes there?

  74. o.m.g.

  75. Voulez-vous booper avec moi?

  76. Ce soir? :)
