April 2012 - photo challenge - Funny/goofy faces

April 3rd, 2012, 08:51 AM
Hi members - any ideas for april's photo challenge?

Here's an idea - Flower power

Feel free to support this idea or freely suggest another idea.

The idea with the most support by tomorrow become this month's challenge.

april foolishness? pets being silly/goofy!

Funny faces? :crazy:

I like the "flower power" idea for spring, but it's kind of hard to run out and take a quick shot of someone frolicking in the tulips for those of us still at the tail end of winter. (OK, we have a month, but....)

How about pushing "flower power" back to May instead, so we can take some new shots once the flowers come out?

I like the others' ideas too.

My idea is "angels & devils"-- pets looking EITHER totally angelic OR caught in the act (dog sitting amidst ripped-apart kitchen trash can, cat sleeping right in the middle of a pile of freshly-washed laundry, toilet paper pulled all the way off the roll/food suddenly missing from dining room table and cat/dog giving that, "who, ME?" look).

I think for some of the "devils" pictures it's hard to catch them in the act so you maybe need a photo of the offending act and then a separate photo of the culprit. Or description of the offending act and picture of the guilty party.

Or then again, this might all be too complex. :clown:

We need another few people to post to break a 4 way tie on the suggestions.


Definately push the flower power to May, there are no flowers yet, and our frost will probably delay them now. I like goofy faces, could use some funny pics after our grey winter.......:thumbs up

seems like funny - goofy face has the most support so that will be the theme this month.

Merging suggestion posts now. Thx!

Hi members,

The suggestion posts have been merged and challenge or theme this month is funny or goofy faces. Thx for the suggestions!

Ok then who will post the first goofy face :D

April 3rd, 2012, 09:44 AM
Rookie with funny ears!

April 3rd, 2012, 10:01 AM
Nice start Marty11 :highfive:

April 3rd, 2012, 10:37 AM
Well, this is a hard one!

I'm not sure this one is OK because it's her natural stare, so seems a bit cruel to deem it 'funny' but I think this is all I've got!

This is the same Japanese Chin appearing in the March challenge. Still entirely unrecognizable as a Chin when the photo was taken (two months after she was adopted).

I hear what you are saying about funny looks being their natural look but it Seems okay to me TokyoParrot.

I don't think domesticated "funny-looking" dogs or cats know they are funny looking so they don't feel bad about it :D
Besides, sometimes, part of the very reason we adopt pets is based on how they look and different people are attracted to different 'looks'.

Very cute goofy pic :)

Ok, I know I've used these before, but they still make me giggle! I'll try to get some new ones, which shouldn't be hard, because it's Nookie after all! He's full of funny faces lol :)

April 3rd, 2012, 11:13 AM
The pit/dalmation cross I used to babysit..Can you stick out your tongue and touch your nose?

April 3rd, 2012, 11:17 AM
HaHa...great shots ... Nookie the king of funny faces!!:crazy::laughing::laughing:

April 3rd, 2012, 11:54 AM
Oh My that Chin is sooooooooo cute. :cloud9:

April 3rd, 2012, 09:48 PM
LOL!!! Love the 2nd one of Nookie, Rguerts. It reminds me of Scooby Doo saying, "huh?"

So far, all the pictures have put a smile on this tired ole face. :highfive:

Note to self....round up some goofy shots. :thumbs up

"I got what on my face?"

does looking goofty qualify as a goofy look? *L*

"this is what I think of your camera"

April 4th, 2012, 09:07 AM
These are way fun everyone :highfive:

April 5th, 2012, 09:09 PM
Here are some of my gang. Smokey is 70 lbs. to Puck's 13, but they are best buddies. When they get playing it's hard to tell which one is bigger, although Puck does spend more time under Smokey than vice versa. Pepper found comfort resting her chin on the iron coffee table frame - looks awfully uncomfortable to me but she stayed that way for quite a while. Finally, Puck is just a cute fellow with a mug you've gotta love.

I love all these pics. As I was looking through my album another possible theme occurred to me - perhaps animals and water?

April 10th, 2012, 01:42 PM
Cute additions abmacdon! We had a water challenge in June 2007 - wow almost 5 years ago :eek: Feel free to suggest it again when we open up May's suggestion thread at the beginning of May.

here's one I shot this weekend - do goofy sleepy faces count? :D

Groucho and Dusty:

I even turned Groucho into a meme: 3596_n.jpg

April 11th, 2012, 02:53 PM
These photos are all just so wonderful!!! I really love these monthly challenges :lovestruck: :cloud9:

Marty, Rookie just looks so precious in that photo :lovestruck:

Sasha is a silly beauty!!

Brina, well.... LOL!! That pic of her with all the cardboard rolls just cracks me up!!

Soundy, you're 2 are just adorable! I love the last one of Groucho... you put the perfect caption on it :laughing:

Marko, I love to see your kitties!! That is one, sweet, sleepy face lol

I don't have many silly/goofy pics of Thorin. He was such a photogenic boy, unlike Nookie Monster who is king of the goofy :laughing:
But this is one of his silly moments I was lucky enough to catch. It's one of my favorite pictures of him :cloud9: :lovestruck: :

April 11th, 2012, 02:58 PM
LOL!!! Love the 2nd one of Nookie, Rguerts. It reminds me of Scooby Doo saying, "huh?"

LOL yes!!! I had to go look at it again, and it does!!! I always just thought it was a great "deer in headlights" look! He's such a dork dog :)

So far, all the pictures have put a smile on this tired ole face. :highfive:

Note to self....round up some goofy shots. :thumbs up

I always love to see your 2 :lovestruck: :cloud9:

April 11th, 2012, 05:37 PM
Okay, found one of Daisy to add... 104219_n.jpg

April 11th, 2012, 08:37 PM
Gotta get some more kitties in here! (although dogs really do make some funny faces

I have so many pics of Peppercorn with a goofy look that it was surprisingly hard to narrow it down:

.....cannot be unseen"

And the manly Memphis, in mid-slurp:
(I think the pink tongue really softens his macho exterior)

Cinnamon Girl with her "whatchya eatin?" expression:
"You gonna finish that?"

Carrot really loves nommin on my yucca. Obviously.:
He also likes lettuce. May have to revoke his carnivore status.

And of course Aztec, with his classic Billy Idol sneer:
(Apparently Billy Idol is vegetarian. Who knew.)

LOL... came across this pic tonight when I was looking through the folders. This is perfect for this months challenge! This is Nookies "Gremlin" imitation :laughing:

I shouldn't laugh, he just wasn't growing right and had the meningoencephalitis, which we're sure is what gave him the "Psycho" look... but I CAN giggle at it now because he's so much healthier :cloud9: :lovestruck:

April 15th, 2012, 09:21 PM
I'm so S.M.R.T.!!!


April 15th, 2012, 09:25 PM
No....Not the water-WHOAH!


April 15th, 2012, 09:27 PM!


April 19th, 2012, 03:38 PM
Love these new additions. SCM, that sneer shot is priceless.

April 19th, 2012, 06:39 PM
:laughing: Lots of sweet pics in this thread!

Here's one of Grace (with the goofy face) and Brier:

Lady Ridge's goofy face as she watches Lil Belle and Brier posture in the foreground:

And Lil Belle letting Brier know exactly what she thinks of him. :p:

Groucho and Daisy - their eyes are reflecting the bright sky, but my wife is standing right there creating a silhouette... gives them a creepy alien look! 732538_n.jpg 313063_n.jpg
