I Be Hangin' With Dufus

Get ready folks. Dufus has decided to get into the captioning business. That's right! Beginning tomorrow nonamedufus goes interactive and solicits your input on the first in a series of caption contests. Yep, in the weeks to come I'll be doing more soliciting than Bayou Betty on a New Orleans street corner.

"Why?" you ask. Well, I'm kinda a caption-aholic as you can see from the hardware down my right sidebar. And lately there's a dearth of caption contests out there. Poor old Joe at Crochety Old Man has been laid up in the hospital and re-hab and been unable to award his Zucchini for what is perhaps the best weekly caption contest on the interwebz. And Chica at Lady Sarcasm awarded her last cherished Kick Ass Captioneer award a week or so ago. And, horror of horrors, the caption kings and awarders of the Twinsey Award, Philip and Douglas - the Dyer Boys - have gotten out of the blogging business altogether!

So to avoid a void (sorry to repeat myself) out there I'd like to help fill it (people have said I'm full of it) with the new I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. So starting tomorrow, traditionally known as "Wordless Wednesday" on the humour blog interwebz, I'll be posting a pic and soliciting (at no charge) your captions. So drop by tomorrow and Pause, Ponder and Pun. See y'all then...

The Dyer Boys have retired all ready? Good grief. Obviously the 'King of Kapshunz' title is up for grabs then, go for it Dufus!

Tiggy: We'll give 'er a whirl. There's no replacing the Dyer twins who made captionning a career, but once a week might be fun.

Dufus, my sentiments exactly. I also want to keep on with the captioning thing. I think it is so much fun to read what others come up with. Shall we do ours on the same day?

I already have my caption for your picture for tomorrow.

"This just in. Michael Jackson is still dead!"

lotgk: ...and little boys can go back to just worrying about Catholic priests.

You know Bayou Betty too? I last saw her at Canal St. and Poydras near the Superdome.
Cool, a captioning contest by 'dufus. I'll have a whirl at it. I'm not very good with them, but occasionally I'll nail one. A caption. Not Bayou Betty.

Boy you really get around. How 'bout Swampy Sue and Levee Lulu?

P.S. Looking forward to seeing your comments!

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
