When all else fails, put a dog in a pirate suit… that pretty much works every time…

The Comments

Don Jones

YEs indeEd.. That works great. But the question is: Is that an auethenticl rendering of a diamond or an artistic simulation of a cubic zirconia?

Zaz

Good Morning Dennis, Just awesome! From the background to the highlights running across his pants to the way you Illustrated the hands. This only shows me that I need to draw a heck of alot more to gain an imagination like yours. Your style blows me away. “Hey”, my Dad used to wear a belt like that, it looks better on the Pirate Dog.

Don Jones

That pant highlight that Zaz is talking about makes them look polyester. I like that.

Dennis Jones

…Zaz, I guess you missed the point in my exhaustive blog post above… you don’t need no imagination… all ya gotta do is draw a dog… put him in pirate clothes…

Don Jones

You gotta learn to “read between the lines” Zaz… GOSH!

Dennis Jones

…if the dog in a pirate outfit doesn’t work, a bear in a medieval costume is usually a sure bet, too…

Doug Jones

Awesomeness dittos! This little dawg is mucho more fun to look at than that wood pile. Not that there is anything WRONG with your wood pile. I was actually thinking of endorsing a wood pile for president till SocMo threw his hat into the ring. …and Zazoo…. I see your problem… when I click on your name I am told I need a new browser…  what’s up with that?

Zaz

Sorry dougger, Not sure, I guess I’m a week act and the browser knows it. Hey den, I got what you were saying, I’m just saying your style is the best. It’s one thing with coming up with things it’s another thing to draw them life like but with a twist to them. Your work inspires me to do better. I’m new at all this but our Lord sure gave you a gift and whats good about you and your brothers is you work hard at it and you’re doing something with it.

Dennis Jones

…oh, I knew you got it, Zaz… I was just yanking your chain, trying to get a snarky response outa one of the brothers… always good to hear you chime in…

Don Jones

I don’t work hard at anything… except #10 Gravy Bowls for $3.30 at Hardees.

Dennis Jones

…ya know, we had a Hardees here in town but it went out of business… and now you have gone and flung one powerful craving on me for a gravy bowl…

Hardeeeeeez just recently introduced the smaller version of their famous high quality Black Angus burger, which I highly recommend.

Jason Bourne

Rad. I like the ape. Angus is some great meat! Speaking of food, a Sloppy Joe would be nice one day again.

Doug Jones

Ok… so SWASH must mean JUMBO. So Swashbuckle translates to Jumbobuckle… which is what this doggie is wearing. I think this would be another great BrotherJones product. The Swashbuckle belt. To hold in those large tummies in the upcoming high calorie holiday eating season…

Dennis Jones

…Douger… check out the Facebook for a little surprise…

Bernard

Whoa, that’s what I git for not coming around for a while…a BIG “Lookitt Datt’! Off the planet! I love everybody’s style and techniques but Dennis your stuff is the Jim Thorpe of art for me. I came for the art but I stayed for the humor… you Smith boys are too funny!

Doug Jones

Thanks for the heads up… I check in at Facebook about once a month… if I remember… so how did you film this?

Dennis Jones

…Doug, that’s just jpegs loaded into iMovie with a song attached… I gave up on the screen capture thing… it seemed to bog my system down too much during the capture and I actually like how this turned out just about as much… I might experiment with it a bit more… it’s really pretty fun…

…BERNARD! Hey, have you got your new web site built yet? Let us know when you do so we can all come over and for a little visit…

What we have here is your basic one eyed, peg legged pirate possum selling fake Rolex watches to unsuspecting tourists…

The Comments

The “Ripleys” Guy

I just saw him in Cancun last week! Are you serious…..the watches aren’t real?

Don Jones

Obviously this Cancun pirate vermin has ties to the Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum in Branson. Either that, or he used to be employed by Sammy’s Lane’s Pirate cruise on Lake Taneycomo. I love this little hustler…

Dennis Jones

…hey, did I ever tell you I actually got a job way back when as the Sammy Lane’s Pirate Cruise tour guide/banjo player guy but chickened out and quit before my first day because I knew my banjo playing wasn’t going to be near good enough… true story…

Doug Jones

Oh yeah… the old basic one eyed, peg legged pirate possum selling fake Rolex watches trick… and I fell for it again… now I have 12 Rolex watches…

Dennis Jones

…well, if you bought them from Sid, you’ll need 12 more in about a month…

jack foster

Great pirate possum Dennis! Love this guy! I got one of his watches for my wife on our honeymoon. Bad idea! lol I’m a huge fan. :o)

Dennis Jones

…you can’t go too far wrong with a nice pair of fake Oakley sunglasses, but we might want to draw the line at the fake Rolex watches…

Don Jones

We scored Oakley knockoffs at the gas station in Mountain Grove… need to check out the fine jewelry next visit. Probably behind the counter and the corn dogs.

Dennis Jones

…a word to the wise …don’t buy the fake corn dogs…

Nik

Awesome,love the mouth there.

The “Ripleys” Guy

The corn dogs weren’t real?????

Jeff

They are real, just not real corn or dog…..

Dennis Jones

…surprisingly, the fake corn dogs ARE actually real corn and dogs… whooda thought?

Don Jones

I hear ya on that banjo-playing back out pirate gig… any self respecting pirate can only play Cripple Creek so many times…

Dennis Jones

…aaArrgg matie …and Cripple Creek be the one and only song I can play… be it then or now…

Jeff

O.K. I learn something new about Dennis every week….I had no idea you could play a Redneck Harp..

Dennis Jones

…well, the word “play” might be putting what I do with a banjo a little strong…

Don Jones

10 ways to improve your banjo playing, Den

1. Buy wire cutters
4. Wear ear plugs
3. Accompany a tuba
6. Play underwater
5. Play in a dark, soundproof place such as a closet or car trunk
9. Visualize Playing Banjo- only.
10. Give your banjo away

Doug Jones

Q. how do you get a banjo player to leave your porch? A. pay him for the pizza

Juan Villarruel

Dennis Jones

…Doug, you still got your banjo?

Nik
