Globber Auction Today !

"What is ME bid for this fine-lookin' young man?"
Bidding starts at whatever you want to buy him with.

Don't worry that he has on that awful shirt. You can change that if you win him.

Don't worry that he doesn't know it's cold outside and isn't wearing a coat. We will send him to you with a coat. He doesn't know to come in from the rain either. He's trainable.

Don't worry that he loses bets on Okahoma/Alabama football games. (He does pay his bets, by the way.)

Don't worry that he does knows how to fly T-45 Goshawks and F-18 Hornets. That could be a plus for you. . .free fast rides.

If you are the highest bidder, well, the bidder who offers the best deal, you can re-name him with a new call sign.

Does anyone know his current call sign?
If so, give CLUES to what it is.

So, here's the deal:
1) What is your bid for him?
2) What are clues for his current call sign?
3) What call sign will you give him if you win him?

Winners will be announced at another GlobberAward ceremony. Stay tuned to this channel for updates. There will be another GlobberAuction coming up soon, as we do have more of these where he came from. They are in uniform.

MJ: Just a quick note to you about the Golden Retriever. I know what he does to underwear. I don't care how trained he is.Try something else for your bid, ok?

Unless he is Atticus Finch, I don't think I can bid on a boy from Alabama.I knew one once and he was very friendly and all but his mom was really, really scary and he was a pincher.

Maybe I have Bamaphobia.

I'm sorry...one man (and two small men) in my life is all I can handle. My question is, what is your bid to get rid of him? If the price is right, we'll take him!

(SW, Click on me now and see if it works.)

1. I bid to furnish him with a year's supply of pizza and the beer of his choice.

2. His current call sign? Alabama.

3. He chose his call sign, which means he likes it, so he gets to keep it. ;)

Ooops... I just saw mj said "Alabama". Well, it's rather the obvious choice since he has it written on his shirt, but I didn't copy her. Just so you know! LOL!

Okay - I will bid one free post dedicated strictly to him.

His call name must be Beaver (thanks Julie)

and I will call him "Cool Moon" (because if he can fly, he must be using Swampwitch's broom)

Gosh after reading what eveyone bid and daid they stole my thunder.
Oh well guess I have to pass the bidding. I have enough men to pick up after. But Rolling Thunder is a nice handle.

Sooo handsome and a southern gentlemen to boot! I know his call sign but for this picture it will be given "Alabama cowboy with icing on top"! Something awefully romantic about those mountains too.

1.I bid one home cooked meal and a soft blanket curled up to watch a movie with a playmate attached to the remote control!

2.Call sign: Beaves

WolfBaby: Thanks for stopping by today.

Crashtestcomic: How did you find GlobAsylum? and "Show me da money."

MJ: I know what your golden retriever does to underwear, besides I have 2 boxers who would not be happy. The Hatchback, chocolate cows, and Canadian money are tempting. Marnie's Fly Boy is a good one.

Laura: No, he's not Scott and Jem's father from Maycomb.

Susan: I'll send an e-mail about the price. Yes, you are working now.

Pamela: He was a bit chilly that day. Ice Man is a good call sign. Where have I heard that before?


Oblivious Maven: I have plenty of lint in my dryer. Have you contacted GA yet?

Gayle: He might take you up on the pizza and beer. And, actually they are given their call signs. They don't have the opportunity to name themselves.

Pam: Stop by again and I'll try not to stump you. :)

Minka: How will we get him all the way to Iceland to you?

Julie: He does need a new shirt and some outerwear. Your clues for his call sign are right on. Howdjaknowdat? I like Cowboy.

Anonoymous #1: I think you might know him.

KarmynR: Free post for the Fly Boy sounds good to me. I'll give you his number. Cool Moon is good and I was wondering where my broom was.

Jenny: Does the toddler come equipped with Numbsit and diapers?

BarnGoddess: The food sounds great and I do need more Joe t-shirts. That call sign would not make him a happy camper.

Anonymous #2: I think you must have an inside track on this one. Can you buy those remotes at the store. If so, my hubby will be out shopping today.
Is the code PPM 07-85 ?

Dude, there is no way I can compete with these comments. They are soooo good and funny.
I just have a question. Does he do laundry? If not, I'm not bidding. :-)

So, who is that?

Blogger Swampwitch said...

SillyHily: Yes, he does his own laundry when he visits here.
...a Major in the Marines. . . call sign: Beav
