Who Left the Lady Fingers : Dudette III Results!

Welcome to Dude Write!

We are thrilled to have you here, whether you are a DUDETTE, a Writer Dude, a Blogger Dude, a Reader Dude or a Fanatic of good writing. If you've stumbled upon us via a link and wondering what you've gotten yourself into, our Mission Statement should explain it all.

Ya know, when Christie Brinkley married Billy Joel, the dudes of this world cried and rejoiced. We cried because a super model was off the market. We rejoiced that a not-so-hot mook from New Yawk could land her.

When the Dudettes join us over at Dude Write, we also cry and laugh. We laugh because so many of you are hysterical. We cry because we know how difficult it will be to follow you.


In honor of both events, we offer "We didn't light the fryer" (sung to We didn't start the fire"


Saint Mundatis, Angry Birds, Keeper Landing, Call Me Dude

Pacifistic Boob Displaying, Jersey Diner, Bottled Wine

Psycho Dentist, Urination, Tarantino, Little Things

Not Bridezilla, Resolutions, Martyr Married, Easy Mobile

Sickness Sharing, Scanned Brazilian, Whine Country

Waiting Room, Gone and Back, Exploding Colon

Irritating Book Titles, Bowling Balsa, Grammar Policing

Jeremy Higgins has no son

We didn't light the fryer
It was always burning
Now the chicken's burning!
We didn't light the fryer
No we didn't fight it
Now we've got to bite it.


(Yeah, no idea...it started with such promise)

And with that, we shall reveal the results.

Our inductee into the Members Only Diamond Club is Outlaw Mama! Her post Scheduled a Full Body Scan? Don't Forget Your Brazilian made a lot of us dudes a little uncomfortable but apparently struck a chord with the ladies.

Congrats, and head on over to the Diamond Club to link up!


The latest People's Choice award winner, granted to the person receiving the most votes from our readership is Valerie Nunez and the Flying Platypi with If You Forget to Floss, the Little Dental Gnomes Will Come and Pull Your Teeth Out Whilst You Sleep. Or At Least That's What My Dad Told Me. Maybe. A terrifyingly long title to a well written little post about the Serial Dentist who have your cell phone and aren't ashamed to use it.

We decided to let our previous weeks dudes give out a Chairman's Choice. Well, since there were a few of them, we asked each for two picks, so we'd be able to have each one honor a Dudette.

Well, we got carried away... Since most of the guys liked different posts (mostly), we said...lets play two! So there are TONS of Chairman's Choice awards this week.

Michael Walker said, "Ateachablemom - For me this one was all about the skill of the writer, and Mary certainly has it in spades. Kianwi - Kianwi is no stranger to good writing and good humor. I thought she captured the moment of trying to mentally will her dog to pee perfectly.""

Ken (in-a-tractor) said, "Thanks to all the Dudettes that participated. I think, my first Chairman's Choice award for this week is going to go to Antijenic Drift, for To Those Who Wait. Something about this post grabbed me and held onto me all the way through, putting me in my own waiting room with a crumpled number in my hand. Well done. Trying to single one choice out is terribly hard, but my other Chairmans Choice Award is for Can I Get Another Bottle of Whine for her post, What The Space Shuttle & My Colon Have in Common. It was sort of a double whammy of a post, with not only the embarrassment of the colonoscopy, but also inadvertently telling the world about it through a reply to all, email mistake. Well done! Certainly cringe worthy!"

Bryan Jones said, "My two choices are 1 and 11 (Kianwi and Stacie). Keep up the great work."

Kevin (who woulda thought) said, "My first Chairman's Choice goes to The Adventures of a Misplaced Alaskan and her post Life Lessons From The Angry Birds. She hit the pig on the head with this one. It was a great perspective on how Angry Birds can teach you, much like Avian Yodas. My second Chairman's Choice goes to Can I Get Another Bottle Of Whine...with my morning quiet time. Despite having one of the longest blog names I've seen, she told the story of something I have done many times, just not the descriptive. I hope her colon finds a nice hiding spot after that.

Brett Minor said, "I have to go with Wino on a Ramble and her post Django Unchained and the Quentin Tarantino Movie Soup Game and Outlaw Mama's post Scheduled A Full-Body Scan? Don’t Forget Your Brazilian. These are both new blogs for me that I have never visited before. Glad to have found them. I am now following both."

Your editors also had an opinion this week.

Youngman Brown said, "Wow the girls really brought it this week, didn't they? My Chairman's Choice this week goes to Jewels for her incredibly accurate connection between fishing and dating. It was especially timely for me since I am getting back into the dating scene, and my jaw couldn't help but drop at how right she was about everything. But Jewels typically is right about everything."

WilyGuy said, "Hosting the ladies is always a treat. I wanted to give out several Chairman's Choice awards this week. In the end, I could do nothing but give my heart choice to Jeneral Insanity with her post It Really IS the Little Things. From her flying monkeys avatar, to her excellent use of 'nucking futs,' she had me rolling all the way home like the wee piggy. I had at least one ceremonial glass of 'bot-ka' to celebrate my auspicious choice. Way to go!"

Congratulations to all of the new Man Dudette Card winners this week. Before you go, understand that we value ALL our door kicking, beer bringing, funny making, Dudettes! With that, please take one of our cards below just for kicking in our door! That's right, we're crazy. Just be sure to tell all your friends to come back and watch the Dudes take on the unenviable task of following y'all up!
