Gumby Rorschach

There has been some discussion, through comments and email, about what Gumby is doing in my profile photo. Please let me know what YOU think Gumby is up to. Leave a comment. I'll let you know after a while what most visitors think:)

Gumby is:
A. Performing a breast self-exam
B. Salsa dancing
C. Practicing for the arm-pit-farting competition
D. Having "the BIG ONE"
E. Reciting an oath (On my honor, I will try, to do my duty...)
F. Other -- you tell me!

And as always, your answers say more about you than they do about me or Gumby!

37 heads are better than one . . .

gumby is waving hello just prior to bowing in that oh so fashionable manner that one might see when a gumby is meeting the queen. he is demonstrating an ability to greet in both a common and royal manner. i think it speaks well of gumby. well done gumby.

Blogger ducklet said...

no, no, no, clearly, gumby is showing the world that he can pat his head and rub his tummy at the same time. show off.

To me, it looks as though Gumby is slow dancing with an imaginary friend much taller than he is.

Neat idea for a post!

That former little green slab of clay is practicing his moves. He's about to jump into Cinderella with his pony pal Pokey, and possibly Prickle and Goo as well. At the ball, Gumby is surely going to be required to do some waltzing. He must do this well; he must impress. Here we see him perfecting how to twirl his partner, a smoothe move that will surely get him laid. Indeed you should see what Gumby can do today!

Obviously, he's dancing and singing "Happy Days are Here Again." He's Gumby, after all.

Anonymous Efrain said...

Maybe he's practicing his karate! :-)

PS-you might want to check your digital camera cuz Gumby has some major red-eye issues.

lol j/k

Blogger Circus Kelli said...

Gumby is taking an imaginary "Air Shower." All the green posables are doing it these days.

Either that, or he's Vogue-ing.

Blogger Susie said...

honestyrain, thank you for getting us off to such a good start. I like the way you think. Hospitality is very important to me, and the ability to "greet in both a common and royal manner" is absolutely essential. Well done, Gumby, indeed.

brando, I actually possess the skilz you describe; you don't, do you? Your covetousness shows. And while it might be green, it ain't pretty. Tsk, tsk. Gumby does, of course, possess those skilz as well.

kalki, you might be right. Gumby does seem to enjoy the company of larger individuals. No reason he shouldn't be ready to dance with them, should the opportunity present.

Blogger Mamaramma said...

I think Gumby is waving to an old acquaintance he just ran into, and is pulling out his cameraphone from his breastpocket to record the moment, but oh HORROR! - Gumby forgot to put on clothes this mornng!

Anonymous Julie said...

Gumby is obviously doing the Safety Dance.

Blogger Susie said...

mrtl, it is true that G can walk into any book, so I'm down wit da Cinderella thing; and I can see the working on the waltz moves; but to "get him laid?!!" Yes, he is known for being a bit of a clayboy, but, come on ... (ahem, whispered aside to mrtl: Bucky had PHOTOS a while back of Gumby's um, "adventures")

coffeecrumbles, well, first, your name's making me hungry. But back to the task at hand, Gumby is a very noble, honorable, guy, so the oath thing is quite possible.

stringmuse, very plausible. Yea, I can see that, "the skies above are clear again," maybe with a little soft-shoe, maybe even some tap skilz...

Anonymous mrtl said...

Yes, Susie. I saw the Gumby/A1 photos. If he's desperate enough for the A1, he's going to try to get laid. Ya with me?

Blogger Greenthumb said...

c'mon peeps, he's doing the meringue...and he's looking at the other hotties in their skin tight green suits and thinking...nice package.

( you did say, that it says more about me than you...just going with it)

Blogger Susie said...

efrain, I tried to clean up the red-eye problem, but Photoshop just laughed at me. G may be doing some Karate. Or maybe some Kung Fu Fighting?

Circus Kelli, thank goodness someone is concerned about cleanliness around here. G will definitely need that air shower if he engages in the other activities suggested here.

mamaramma, this is good; the friendly, yet startled, mildly embarrassed expression on the face; the arm strategically covering the chest... yep, it's all, "Well, hello, there! It's been so long...let me take a ph...OHMY! I'm nekkid!" Don'tcha HATE when that happens?

Blogger LadyBug said...

Susie, I think you already have me down for "breast self-exam."

I mean, CLEARLY Gumby is post-menopausal (he's been around for a while) and just keeping himself..um..abreast of the status of his man-boob health.

Blogger _Summer_ said...

No, no, no. He's obviously importing the fourth ballet position into modern, interpretive dance. He's reached the point in the story which, if it were written, would read:

I am the swan,
I swim your polluted
waters. Poisoned
by Man, by Machine,
I shall die, now,
most symbolically.
And the
tears of my ancestors
will rain down
from the heavens
and the universe
will weep for sorrow,
for joy,
for me.
The smiling,
the knowing,

Or, he's merely tipping his imaginary cowboy hat, as if to day, "Howdy, Ma'am" to Goo, his lady-friend.

Or, he's getting ready to open up his green can of whoop-ass and let loose with some major kung-fu action.

i just can't decide....the voices!, the voices!, make them stop!!!!

Blogger lawbrat said...

Gumby is waving 'hello' to all the people that visit your blog. He makes us feel welcome and happy :-)


Blogger Susie said...

The Safety Dance

We can dance if we want to, we can leave your friends behind
'Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
Well they're no friends of mine

Say, we can go where we want to, a place that they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind

Yep, that sounds about right.

mrtl, you signed the petition! Hurray for you! (susie skillfully avoids discussion of Gumby's alleged sex life)

greenie, hotties in skintight green suits? you and I aren't so different, bro...

Anonymous mrtl said...

I'm with you Susie! I've added a petition link to my site.

Blogger Susie said...

LadyBug, yes, yes, it's all about the breasts, isn't it always...

Summer, That "tag" sent you right over the edge, didn't it, sweetie? As long as the voices don't tell you to do anything a)illegal, b)immoral or c)really freakin' stupid, just go with 'em; you'll have fun! (people pay me to say things like that)

lawbrat, your comment made me feel SO GOOD. I hope visitors feel welcome and happy here:) It is like my little blogworld home, you know? Here, lawbrat, have a cookie. Tea?

Blogger Closet Metro said...

He's waving the stench from his freshly shaved pits at you. (What kind of green clay guy shaves his pits?)

Blogger Susie said...

closet metro, At ME? At YOU, maybe. And anyway, Gumby doesn't shave. I WAX him. He's Gumby, dammit.

Blogger marybishop said...

Hope this isn't a double post
Obviously, Gumby is practicing back up for Diana Ross and the Supreme's song: Stop in the Name of Love.

Blogger Circus Kelli said...

COOKIES?! Did someone say cookies?!

Blogger _Summer_ said...

Thanks to you, Susie dear, I've had the Gumby show theme song stuck in my head for almost a full 24 hours. Do you have any idea what that DOES to a person?! You should know better.



Heeee's here, and he will be sure to stay.


Let's all see what magical games
he can play.


He can change into anythiiiing,
With his pals, Pokey, Prickle, and Goo.

He will walk through the wall if you want him to!

When you're sad, Gumby makes you glad
With all the things he can do!
If he's in your heart, then he'll be a part of you!
If you have a heart then Gumby's the pal for YOUUUUUUUU!

Thanks a lot.

Blogger Susie said...

marybishop, well yes, think it oh-woh-ver, haven't I been good to you... think it oh-woh-ver, haven't I been swee-eet to you?

Here, CK, have a cookie, and bring the box with you to the sing-a-long....

Hey ya'll!! Summer wants to lead us in the Gumby-song-sing-along!!!

Blogger JODSTER said...

Clearly from the background, this is some sort of hidden shower cam for our plastic friends.

Who ever would have thought Gumby to be so voyagueristic...


Maybe I shouldn't joke like this with a therapist...

Blogger SierraBella said...

Wasn't this a still photo from the episode of Entertainment Tonight where Gumby unveiled his new pec implants?

Blogger Circus Kelli said...

Bring the box to the sing-along? Is it ok if the box is empty by then??

Blogger Susie said...

jodster, "clearly," you say. Hmmmm. You see a little toy green dude, and you go all "ooh, ooh, hidden shower cam!" Jodster? You shouldn't "joke" like that with anybody.

sierrabella, go back to your TiVo. Gumby did not "unveil." Paparazzi were involved. Gumby was forced to come forward to quell the rumors. It was not pretty.

circus kelli, absolutely, bring your box to the sing-a-long. Cookie box. Bake some more. Cookies. Hungry little thing today, aren't cha?

Blogger cmo said...

gumby is obviously looking for his nipplering. he still has a place back at cmosblog if you tire of him.

Blogger Susie said...

cmo, I will not tire of Gumby, dammit! Are you saying he left his nipplering at your place? What's going on with you two?

Anonymous EZ (like my morals) said...

I thought he was with the guys at the water cooler showing Janet Jackson's moves at the Super Bowl last year. Being a guy he would have a big grin on his face when thinking about boobs.

Blogger Von Krankipantzen said...

Obviously, Gumby is just pre or post hurl - cleverly holding back his own hair. Don't eat doggie-bag sushi, Gumby!

Blogger Susie said...

krankipantzen, (love your name), THAT is original. I will surely tell Gumby to refrain from such in the future:) Thank you for visiting Gumby and me.

Blogger Dang Cold.. said...

Dare I be so bold as to say that Gumby is doing an new and innovative form of Yoga? Perhaps Tai Chi?
