Contest! Finish this sentence:

From Stephanie’s priceless comment on my post, Charlie Said It First

“There is so much information available it has given most people the attention span of, of,…”

What?  What is your answer? Fill in the blank.  The attention span of a ___________________________

My answer is probably – the attention span of my puppy, Jake, who has an attention span of approximately 10 seconds.  Of course, my answer isn’t creative, but I know yours will be!

This is a contest open to readers in the U.S., but anyone can comment.  I’d love to hear how you finish Stephanie’s statement, because I’m stumped.  An independent panel of goofballs will choose one funny and creative answer.  The winner will receive a brand new tube of my very favorite body lotion for the holidays – it’s the only scent I wear daily…Sensual Amber.

In other news, you’ve probably noticed that I’m experimenting with a new theme.  I still haven’t figured out how to put my name at the top.  Ah well…I’m hoping my tech knows how to do it and that I haven’t screwed things up too badly for her.

Also…so long to The Walking Dead for what?  Like a year?  OMG the last episode was to die for!  Hello to A Game of Thrones, coming in April 2011 on HBO.  I cannot wait, but why oh why does Sean Bean always play such tragic figures?  In the meantime, I’m looking forward to the Coen brothers’ (probably very violent) version of True Grit, starring Jeff Bridges.  It looks incredible.

  3. Stephanie says:

  4. Amber – I feel that way lately too! We must be channeling each other.

    Steph – wait till tomorrow, you’re getting quoted again!

  5. Delilah Hunt says:

    I’d say the attention span of a fly. meh. I have nothing… Anyway. I love the Coen brother movies too. Genius, gruesome as they can be.

  6. “The attention span of a …. Wow! Sensual Amber!!! I love that scent I could roll in it!
    The attention span of a brain-starved zombie…
    Oooo Walking Dead is over for year? I wonder if zombies ate the writing staff’s brains and now they have to train new writers willing to work with zombies?
    The attention span of a puppy… Oh! a Squirrel I hate squirrels they make me want to leap at the windows and bark idiotically…
    XXOO Kat

  7. Jillian says:

    teenage boy not on his ADD meds –

    or a cat that o’ded on Catnip.


  8. ….a zombie stuck in a cargo container filled with Amish succubi headed for a land fill in Utah.

  9. Yeah, Kat…there’s your ADD!

    Jillian – you’re right – my cats on catnip are insane!

  10. Terra Pennington says:

    Snail, Snail, I mean they are so slow they got to have a short attention span right. Attention span of a snail; I mean it takes them all day to remember where their going.

  11. Delilah – you’re as bad as me. Got nuthin’!

    Terra – I love it! Actually, I don’t know if snails ever remember where they’re going, I think they just go…slowly…

  12. jennifer mathis says:

    A kid at christmas waiting on the cookies to come out of the oven .Which equals very little

  13. Mina Gerhart says:

    How about a hyperactive Chihuaua on speed?

    Mindy :)

  14. Jennifer – definitely!

    Mina – bwaaahaaaa! Makes me laugh out loud!

  15. Ciara Knight says:

    My husband when I turn on a Christmas Hallmark movie.

  16. Love this, very funny…

    “There is so much information available it has given most people the attention span of, of,…”

    What? What is your answer? Fill in the blank. The attention span of a ___________________________

    The attention span of, of, a… what were we talking about?

  17. Charlie says:

    a goldfish.

    “My that’s a pretty little house….My, that’s a pretty little house…My, that’s a pretty little house…”

  18. JackieW says:

    A raccoon….actually, that came to mind because I saw one as roadkill today coming home from my sewing class. If they can’t make it across the road in time maybe their attention span is short.

  19. JOYE says:

    As short an attenion span as a fly. They don’t live that long so how long of an attenition span could they have?

  20. Ciara – when I even suggest that we turn on a Hallmark movie…no wait…it’s worse – he flips the remote between baseball, football, basketball and hockey – all at once.

    Chelle – ROTFLMAO! Too funny!

    Charlie – Are you speaking of my goldfish? He seems to prefer a pretty rock…

    Jackie – I was thinking of squirrels too – they can never seem to make it across the road. My route to work is rural and I’ve come across raccoon massacres early in the morning. Awful!

    Joye – I love your name! Yes, kind of like Barb’s gnat – short life, short attention span, unless there’s manure involved!

  21. Fran Lee says:

    As me dearly departed mudder would have said, “the attention span of a pisant”. Now, a pisant is so tiny you can barely see it with the naked eye, so imagine all that pisant brain power…

  22. Hello Fran, my love! Yes, the pisant. Does it really exist?

  23. Gayle O. says:

    My first reaction was a Gnat also but since Barb mentioned it I’ll go with my second thought a cricket. They seem to have no thought process at all.

  24. Gayle O. says:

    Barb not barn.

    My phone auto changes things all the time with no rhyme or reason.

    How about attention span of a smartphone. LOL.

  25. Gayle – I agree – my stupid cell phone!
