Dude and Dude: The Great Hawai`ian Sellout

“Hey dude!”

“What do I look like, dude? A paniolo?

“A paniwhat?

“A paniolo. A Hawai‘ian cowboy, you haole. Who might possibly have some interest in hay.”

“Dude, I’d love it if you had some interest in hay. Like maybe making some? So I wouldn’t have to be howling at you every month when the rent’s due?”

“Very funny, dude. Next thing I know, you’ll want me to be hawking T-shirts online or something.”

“Well, if it’s good enough for OC and Quilly, it oughta be good enough for you.”

What?? They sold out?!?

“I don’t think so, dude. Their store’s only been open for a couple of hours. I hardly think they’re sold out of anything yet.”

“Oh fer … what brought this on?”

“Well, you know Quilly’s been taking all these photos of like Hawai‘ian flowers and turtles and birds and things?”


“Well, she figured if they were good enough for this Aussie journalist guy, they were good enough to stick on mugs and calendars and aprons, stuff like that.”

“You think anybody will buy this stuff?”

“What? You dissin’ Quilly’s pictures?”

“And risk OC’s delete key?? No way, dude! Besides, that Aussie dude’s right. They are great pictures. And nobody’s payin’ me to say that.”


“Damn what, dude?”

“I sure wish someone would pay you to do somethin’.”

Hey! I can stand on the surfboard now, dude! Sometimes …”

“Riiiight. Here. Read this.”

“‘Click on by OC ‘n’ Quilly’s Cafepress Store for all sorts of knick-knacks, keepsakes, and mementos from Hawai‘i and the OC and Quilly blogs. C’mon. You know you want to.’ Dude? Did I just read a commercial?!?

“You did a great job, too, Daddy-O. A lot better than you ride that board.”

“I can’t believe this. I’m turning into a capitalist!

“Does that mean you have money for the rent, dude?”

“I said capitalist, dude! Not philanthropist!

But seriously, folks. Check out the store. Buy stuff and save Quilly from pre-K.

Better yet, if you see something of Quilly’s that you think would look good on a mug (not my mug, of course, that would be fatal), let us know. We’ll see what we can do.

Cheers, The Amoeba

    For my advice on building a blog audience of course. 😀

    Brian — I paid what I thought it was worth! 🙂

  8. Brian says:

    That’s what they always say. Some cowrie shells would be nice.

  9. QuillDancer says:

    Brian — I’ve not yet seen any. And the shells will have to be empty, because I won’t kill.
