Mango Minster 2012 - Adventure Animals!

Woo, everypup and everycat.  And everyone else, too.  Dave here, with a big announcement.  Many of you know about Mango Minster, the biggest, coolest show in the blogosphere.  I mean, with the Relentlessly Huge Mango Man (oh, yeah!) in charge, it HAS to be big - am I right?  Anyway, this year, Zim and I have been given the honor of judging the Adventure Animals category!!!


I'm not sure why I put that picture in here, other than it's us looking cool.

Here are the guidelines for the Adventure Animals, according to Mango and the rules of Mango Minster:
"You don't need to go hiking all over the countryside wasting unnecessary energies to be an adventure animal. Just trying new stuff like my physical therapies school or being bold enough to approach something scary or just about anything you can think of. After all, isn't life just one big adventure?"
This is totally right up our alley!  Life IS just one big adventure!!!

Here's our official statement:
     "We are honored to be the Judges for Mango Minster 2012's Adventure Animals category! Whether it's a trip to the Kansas Ocean, a hike down the Hudson Trail, or meeting new friends right in our own front yard, we believe in plunging into life whole-heartedly! We believe you can find adventure anywhere, anytime. We are looking forward to hearing about your BEST adventures! Many thanks to Mango for this honor!
     Remember, we are professional judges and cannot be bribed. Especially Zim, since he's on a restricted diet."
And we're totally serious about that not being bribed thing.  We cannot be bought!  You can play Kong-on-a-Rope with me all you want or (what, Zim?) yeah, send Zim our very own mountain range for Kansas, but we will remain impartial judges!  Really.

Here are our really cool official judge photos, courtesy  of our fellow judge Fiona.  Or maybe her mom.  We're not sure.  One of them.  Not Fiona's sister Abby, that much I do know.



Don't we look cool?  And official?  And un-bribable?

So what are you waiting for?!?  There are TONS of adventures out there waiting just for YOU!!!  Go out and have some fun!  Then enter Mango Minster!  The deadline is 5 February!

We look forward to hearing good things from all of you!  Until then...

  12. Awesome, my friends! Enjoy your weekend adventures!

  13. You have always been cool dudes.... and I would never think of bribing you.


    No, it would not be fair to even think of doing so.

    your pal, Marvin xxxxx

  14. except.....

    a long while ago, I did try to post youse two a Scottish Mountain.

    But the British Post Office said Ben Lomond was way too expensive to post to Kansas.

    And although I am an old dog now, I kinda like to think of a bride. For me. Cos I am a handsome dog and kinda popular with the females around here......

    Or did I get in a Marvin muddle and read it wrong......

    Bride.....or bribe......

    oh well, sleep or snore. Or both.

    Mucho licks, Marvin xx

    Hello Zim and Dave!

    I think you're both well qualified to be Adventure Animal judges!

    your pal,

  24. Congratulations on being chosen MangoMinster judges, guys! We don't think there is anyone that has had more adventures than the two of you!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  25. We can not think of two more qualified adventure judges! Will Dave also consider color in his judging standards?

  26. OOh - Zim & Dave - you guys are the PERFECT judges for this category!! :-)

    Gosh - I'd better get my thinking cap on and come up with my MM entry!!

  27. Abby wanted to introduce herself to Your Honors and to tell you how much she looks forward to working with you during this MM to ensure the highest ethical standards. Abby appreciates Your Honors light banter which only underlines Your Honors firm stance against any kind of bribery. Abby admits that if a contestant actually figures out how to relocate an entire mountain [as defined by the USGC]to your neck of the woods by way of a bribe, we'll talk.

    Oh, Abby apologises for being a bit tardy in contacting Your Honors; we had a Major Plumbing Emergency that put our assistant behind in reading and posting for a couple of days.

  28. Oops -- Abby meant the USGS.

    Abby the Legal Beagle[mix], etc. etc.

  29. Even though I am an explorer cat, I won't be entering MangoMinster this year. Although I am thinking of entering Teddy in the cracker critters category, with the video on today's blog.

    I know you two will do an excellent job of judging!
