I just realized that if Barney Fife was ever a character choice for a shooter or Street Fighter game or a sidekick/wingman option on a combat/problem solving game, I think I'd have him handing the bad guys their butts back everytime, just for the sheer insult and irony of it all.

I think that's what I love about the 3 Amigos so much, actually. And a LOT of other unlikely hero characters as well come to think of it...

Droopy, UnderDog, Bugs Bunny vs. The Crusher (but a mini Elmer Fudd would've made a more Barney Fife-ish intellectual challenger), but there's only ONE narcissistic-for-no-imaginable-reason Barney Fife that I can think of.

Maybe I should have HIM be the one who does all the successful *sting* operations on those crackhead spiders in my Asap's Foibles children's books! Scarface and his Godfather wouldn't know what what hit him!

I wonder what kind of arguments, interactions, and decision overrides he would have with Cortana going up against the Covenant in Halo? I think he would absolutely have to outrank Master Chief and have him serve a dutiful but begrudging support role by his side keeping him alive in outer space as a promise to the citizens of Mayberry back on Earth.

I can just see Barney taking all the credit for every achievement that Master Chief was actually responsible for, as well.

I guess I'm just proof in the pudding that entertainment ain't what it used to be.

Anybody else want to chime in with a favorite unlikely hero or narcissist with strong moral fiber and boundaries built in?

You guys lost me with Barney Fife. I can't watch the video....I'm at 90% data usage right now (my bad...Watching videos on other topics lmao).

The only game I can recall an amazing character was while playing Quake online and one of the guys changed his Skin to astroboy. Damn man could fly into areas the rest of us couldn't go...And kill us from above.

Since I am a gentleman at heart, I do hereby convey the following lyrics and images to share the fun and support with Lady DragonHeart.

(the characters are from the 1960's show series The Andy Griffith Show. Andy was the town of Mayberry's Sherrif. Barney Fife was his incompetent-and-insecure-but-naricissitic deputy sidekick played by Don Knotts. Darin' means "daring" or courageous. "Copper"=policeman. "Tank"=jail. "Dead-eye"=expert shot (hits the bullseye). "dickey"= police investigator

"Oh, My Darin' Barney Fife"
(Sung to the melody of "Oh, My Darlin' Clementine")

In a jailhouse, down in Dixie, fightin' crime and riskin' life,
Dwelled a sheriff and his buddy, pistol-packing Barney Fife.
Oh, my darin', oh, my darnin' oh, my darin' Barney Fife.
He's a deadly crime-stopper, what a copper Barney Fife.

Then one day there come a-ridin' two bad men to rob a bank.
But Fife was tricky, a dead-eye dickey. Now they're locked up in the tank.

(Andy added the following)
Oh, my Barney, oh, my Barney, had a jail and couldn't lock it.
Had one bullet for his pistol, had to keep it in his pocket

(That GIF moment and others like it is why Andy only let Barney have one bullet and made him keep it in his pocket, btw.)


Oh yeah...he's a real Terminator style thread-killing MACHINE, let me tell ya...

Thanks a lot, Ceph.

Now I've got an earworm. I actually sung the damn thing as I was reading the lyrics.

DragnHeart posted 2/27/2019 13:00 PM

Ok thank you. Now I get it. And yes I saw that shoe many a moon ago but as I age my memory is failing me.

Thanks for the reminder. I also sang that in my head.

And that would be ME with a gun. Would most likely end up shooting myself unintentionally...

DragnHeart posted 2/27/2019 13:30 PM

I gotta say that it's very amusing to watch the red squirrels here. Three of them chattering over who gets to sit in the feeder while the other two squabble over what's thrown in the ground. Then watching one jump successfully from the feeder to the tree or the feeder to the deck but misses entirely trying to jump from the feeder to the kitchen windowsill and ends up doing a belly flop into the snow instead. Note the windowsill is closer than both the tree and deck so his missing it was really funny. The look on his face was equally as humourous.

Tallgirl posted 2/27/2019 20:08 PM

Squirrels in snow. I am shaking my head. Have you seen white squirrels.? We have them on Ontario. That groundhog better give happy news. Like no more snow.

Had to send my 20 yr old snowblower out today. No sputtering, just whining. Really, what does the young muscle bound ones have to whine about.

I whine but I donít work as well.

Whining can be a skill.

CaptainRogers posted 2/27/2019 22:47 PM

TallGirl, I grew up with white squirrels in a small town in southern Illinois. They were everywhere and they were protected. Killing a white squirrel (intentionally or otherwise) could get you anything from a fine to actual jail time.

Notthevictem posted 2/27/2019 22:56 PM

I don't get it... You all are talking about actual white squirrels or is this some weird canadian metaphor for penises?

DragnHeart posted 2/28/2019 04:25 AM

I've never seen a white one. During the summer mainly black and grey. Come winter it's all the little reds that come out from the forests. The three.thst I have come to my feeder are just so cute. And I'm amazed at how different they are from the black ones. Smaller, albeit fatter. Smaller ears.

And louder lol

Oh they are still there.

I don't like squirrels, fuzzy tailed rats really. They are super destructive too, especially if the population is not managed.

And yes NTV they are talking about albino squirrels.

DragnHeart posted 2/28/2019 09:00 AM

Or leucistic squirrels. Lol. That's lacking all dark pigment but still having dark eyes as opposed to red ones.

I'd love to see one.

Notthevictem posted 2/28/2019 10:35 AM

Oh ok. Still not gonna Google pictures of it, if you don't mind. Ya know. Just in case.

DragnHeart posted 2/28/2019 10:43 AM

Albino


Leucistic

New Olympic sport: squirrel chasing.

Opened garage door where the feed is for goats and poultry. Filled my bucket and left it just inside the door as I went to check the mail first.

Came back to pick up the bucket and a cute red squirrel popped out. He then ran into the garage.

So I start chase number one. He finally runs out the open door. I go to put my bucket down and turn my back for one second and the little fluff ball is back in.. sitting there just being a brat. Of course there's at least three so for all I know I chased out one while the other was hiding. In any case 20 minutes and it appears there's no more squirrels in the garage.

I also had a thought from earlier...About octopuses. I wonder what the suction power on their legs is like.

Notthevictem posted 2/28/2019 13:19 PM

So if a squirrel had 8 testicles would it be an octosquirtem?

DragnHeart posted 2/28/2019 14:22 PM

Oh man I was typing that all out when I thought that there will be a way for NTV to make this about scrotums again, just you wait....And I was correct.

Putty the squirrel with eight...Omg isn't two enough? All three of these guys are fighting over the food I put out for them while a chickadee watches from the top of the feeder. WH is bringing home a.live trap for the garage....Just as a deterrent. If they get trapped maybe they will figure out that garage is for us not then.

What do you need a trap for? Mix some sleeping pills with some peanut butter and leave it out. Scoop drugged squirrels into shoebox. Mail to shitty neighbor with return address to other shitty neighbor. Voila! No more squirrel or neighbor problems.
