adventures with the amazing sphincter

this has nothing to do with running, with the exception that running blogger, dawn will get a specific thrill out of it. this post is a long time coming and i've debated for a good long while whether i should post it or not. well, common sense be damned...especially when it's in the name of getting a laugh. the big deterrent to writing this post was knowing that my folks read the blog. well, what i'm about to post contains photographs that...while risque (folks, this is pg-13 material), isn't anything they haven't seen before. mom, laugh at this, and don't die from embarrassment. with that said, let us begin.

a couple years ago, i was actively posting my photography on a community photography site and developed a fun community of photographers and photobloggers, not unlike the running blog community. most of my photographs were 'art', but if you know anything about me, you know i've got a silly side. through the course of running jokes, i got silly and took a photo of, what can only be described in computer terms as a hard disk dump. the photo received wide acclaim and great response. so great, in fact, that other budding photographers got in on the deal and began enhancing the original photo.

at first, the other objects that appeared in the photo were random, like a glass elephant (a gift from south africa to the nation of scotland), a someone's fury friend, rubber wee things (more scottish humor) and a swashbuckling statue. but then, the things took more of a photography/film theme, with tributes to kodak, willy wonka and the gods must be crazy. butt, then things took a turn for the worse and i tootied. yes, it seems that things had come to and end at that point. but not first without being recognized for photography splendor with an award from my peers.

so, now you've seen the real jeff. the half moon jeff. and, i hope to bring the dream back to life. should you get the wild urge to add to my collection, feel free to snag any of those shots and modify it yourself, or pass me along shots of objects or people that you'd like to see join in on the fun.

whew, i'm so glad to have that out of my 'system'.

Way too much hair on your butt. Can't you do something about that? You win! That's ugly!

OMG - Tootie is still my favorite. I needed a good laugh - thanks teff.

I'm also good with a razor.

Posted by: Sooze at July 14, 2006 10:45 AM

LOL. That wa awesome! I'd join in the photoshop fun, but I'm not sure I want to look at half your butt for that long ;)

Those are hilarious, and I'm glad you finally got around to sharing them with us. At some point, you'll need to email me some of your favorite photoblogs. I've got a few bookmarked, but I know there are many many more good ones out there. Apparently done by people with a wicked sense of humor -- and one hairy butt.

Posted by: susie at July 14, 2006 12:23 PM

Posted by: jeanne at July 14, 2006 12:41 PM

omg, my tummy hurts from laughing!

ash (my three year old) came over and asked, "what are you laughing at mom?" i quickly pulled up a different window and answered, "uh..."

omg...i loved that...and there were so many of them...so far my most favorite post yet.

And yeah...yikes at the hairy butt jeff!

Oh, and i'm glad i'm not the only one posting about non-running stuff.

At first I was offended but then I decided to turn the other cheek.

So how many search engine hits do you think you'll get with a title like that!? You so funny, I guess the heat did get to you the other day. LOL!

Posted by: darrell at July 14, 2006 4:32 PM

oh crap - Susie took my line. I'm pretty speechless otherwise.

Posted by: Mark at July 14, 2006 6:52 PM

Great sense of humor to be the butt of all these jokes.

Hilarious, thanks for sharing!

On a totally unrelated point, why do you show both a 10k and 6.2 mile PR on your blog? What's the difference?

Posted by: BD at July 14, 2006 6:57 PM

Those are some great shots coming out of your ass. I especially liked the tootied. Thanks for the laugh.

Posted by: Rob at July 14, 2006 7:45 PM

hysterical! my favorite is the kodak photo spot... and the wee...


thanks for stopping by. another fan of concept albums! i have the pete townshend one (well, it's my husband's, actually, but he appropriated my the who r&b box, so it's all part of the pool of cds). is it psychoderelict? the one with the story version and the music only version? that one is great! hadn't heard of flaming lips until your comment. have to check it out.

Iffen you're going to get serious about this triathlon thing, you're going to have to shave your legs! And it wouldn't hurt to keep right on going! :-)

Awesome pics, great sense of humor (as expected!)

jeff bares all for the blog!

I'm afraid we won't be able to let this one go for a loooong time. :)

I was waiting for a pair of tennis balls.

Posted by: KAP at July 15, 2006 9:29 AM

i could have some serious fun with this.

hee hee.

Posted by: alejandra at July 15, 2006 12:42 PM

"out of your system" Hee hee, ha ha. No more constipation for you. Is that *your* tushie?

Posted by: Juls at July 15, 2006 1:12 PM

so that's what they mean when they say "toilet humour"!

Posted by: Thomas at July 15, 2006 2:06 PM

Like a good church girl, I decided NOT to look at the pics. Just reading the RBF comment’s was enough for me! :) It’s probably a good thing you posted this post AFTER visiting my parents, otherwise I wouldn’t have offered their house. hehe

Posted by: aprilanne at July 16, 2006 8:14 PM

That puts my butt shots to shame....lol..lol..lol. Thanks for the laugh, Jeff.

This kind of humor makes me infinitely happy. More than Christmas and my birthday all rolled into one.
