Tag Archives: outdoor humor



It is bowl season.  I love college football.  Of course the Huskers are my greatest love, but when bowl games are on, I will watch just about anyone, even Iowa.  Some games are between nameless teams in nameless places where they do not experience winter.  I suppose the break from snow and cold might be nice for some folks, but does anyone really want to get all that sweaty while playing a game?  In addition, there will be players go …

Social Distancing Champion


With the current status of our world, I have been spending way too much time watching TV and surfing the interwebs.  Idiocy reigns. Oh sure, I have slipped out for some social distancing, sunshine, mental and physical health therapy.  Then, it is back home.  However, I have seen one commercial recently that I kinda like: https://youtu.be/AeavqyDYQtQ Who knew?  His name is Daryl.  Good name.

Friday Funnies in The Great Outdoors

It’s FRIDAAAAAY! So, I thought I’d share some Friday funnies in the area of Nebraska’s great outdoors with you. First, courtesy of Dylan McCaugherty, Interactive Digital Media Manager for us at the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (a.k.a. Digital Dylan), comes this one, entitled: The Antelope. Corny, but funny. Next, I have a couple crazy ideas for billboards, postcards, etc. promoting a new Nebraska tourism marketing campaign aimed at attracting outdoor enthusiasts to our state. What do you think? And finally, life would be better with my fishin’ if I …
