h/t to the Disciple of the Dumb Ox

You scored as Handel, It’s hard to say where you
got your talent–certainly not from your parents!
But with grudging support from your parents
and sporadic support from people in higher places,
you have room to do things in your style.
When you’re low, keep being your hardworking self.
Big breaks don’t just happen!

Ok, someone carry it on.

Any parent of a toddler will understand this spoof. As one who has countless episodes of Dora and Diego, I have thought of a spoof similar to this one, just not nearly as well developed.

From Matthew from the Creative Minority Report.

Dora the Explorer Arrested for DUI, Drugs

Dora the Explorer, the popular star of her own action adventure show on Nickelodeon, was arrested Wednesday morning at 2:38 a.m. for DUI and possession of illegal drugs after leading police on a high speed chase over the tall bridge, through Crocodile Lake and past the Spooky Forest.

This is not Dora’s first run in with the law. In 2002, following the show’s blockbuster popularity, Dora was arrested for driving erratically and was found to be in possession of an illegal weapon in her backpack. At the time Dora claimed that it was all a misunderstanding as she was heading to Crocodile lake and was just being careful. She claimed the weapon belonged to Senor Tucan, who reportedly was passed out in the back of Azul, the little blue Train. Dora refused a breathalyzer at that time.

In another incident Dora reportedly flew into a rage over the hiring of her cousin Diego for a similar show as Nickelodeon was growing worried over Dora’s erratic behavior. “It’s the same (bleepin) show,” said Dora at the time. “They’re trying to force me out because I’m a party girl. You think I’m crazy. You should’ve seen Boots last Thursday night.” Dora reportedly no longer remained in contact with Diego, who may have been a stabilizing influence in her life.

Swiper said, “This is such a shame because she’s so talented and so bilingual. I hate to see what this is going to do to the children around the world who idolize her.” Swiper also speculated that the Grumpy Old Troll was a bad influence on the set and in Dora’s life. “Everyone knows that if you want illegal drugs you go to under the bridge.”

Dora’s Abuela said, “We’re all hoping that this is what starts our little Dora on the long road past Addiction Alley, over Temptation Lake, to Rehabilitation Road.”

h/t to Barb from SFO Mom for this fun quiz

For you skeptics out there, there was no cheating involved in this either. There was, however, some guessing.

h/t to the Ironic Catholic:

You scored as Traditional Catholic. You look at the great piety and holiness of the Church before the Second Vatican Council and the decay of belief and practice since then, and see that much of the decline is due to failed reforms based on the “Spirit of the Council”.

(Yes, some of it is)

You regret the loss of vast numbers of Religious and Ordained clergy and the widely diverging celebrations of the Mass of Pope Paul VI, which often don’t even seem to be Catholic anymore.

(Yes, I do. Don’t take this to mean that I don’t like the Paul VI Mass. I think it contained some much needed changes. I just don’t like what some people have done to it.)

You are helping to rebuild this past culture in one of the many new Traditional Latin Mass communities or attend Eastern Catholic Divine Liturgy. You seek refuge from the world of pornography, recreational drugs, violence, and materialism. You are an articulate, confident, committed, and intelligent Catholic.

Well, not really. However, I am trying to keep the celebrations of the Paul VI Mass in line with the GIRM and Catholic teaching.

But do you support legitimate reform of the Church, and are you willing to submit to the directives of the Second Vatican Council? Will you cooperate responsibly with others who are not part of the Traditional community?

Absolutely! I do not think a return to a Pre-Vatican II Church or liturgy is the solution, but we do need reform.
