The Noddy Dog

Do you know what it is?

I mentioned it in a story, and for some reason, people who saw it don’t seem to know what it is.

Ever seen one of the hula-dancing girls on the dash of a car? Or the dog? I tried to find a picture of one, but couldn’t find a freebie, so you’ll have to imagine it, or remember it.

The dog with the wobbly head that nods all the time the car moves?

That’s the noddy dog.

Of course, I wasn’t referring to that form of noddy dog – what I was talking about was [oh, no! No, no, no – not politics!] the way the people behind the pollies on telly do the noddy dog.

Ever seen that?

Nod, they nod, and ever nod, and nod some more, and stand behind the mouthpiece and do nothing but nod.

A noddy dog.

Yes, it’s an insult to dogs – and dogs don’t do that. If you want direct, you get a dog. A dog is honest and open and accepting.

What can I use in place of a noddy dog phrase?

I can’t call them rude names — well, I could, but I won’t. I’m not a politician, so not protected by all those things they use.


What phrase can I use to show the noddy dog politician? For the life of me, and even with a wild and vivid imagination, I just can’t think of anything more appropriate …

What can I call the actions of a polly-follower?

And don’t forget the last few days of the Smashwords Sale:

Update on Ninny Rhino? Okay, you asked for it:

  1. How about a “lemming”? Oh wait, there already is a definition of a lemming : “a person who seemingly does not possess any form of individual thought, and instead, mindlessly follows the behaviors and actions of the masses.” Actually, I like noddy dog better.
