Oh I Wish I Were An Oscar Mayer Weiner

Ah, but unlike a pack of 12 of the mystery meat tube steaks, there's only one weiner of Pause, Ponder and Pun. But there were many great efforts...

As you'll recall this was this week's pic...
Who were our honourable mentions? Well lotgk scored big again this week with...
"This is not what I meant by a "Full Nelson!"
Who passed off to Skye, with...
"No, but I thought you may be interested in joining me in "The Full Monty!"
MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings drove to the paint with...
Sports Announcer: "In what may be the most wildly popular NBA half-time competition ever, Nelson is signaling the length of Duke's penis to the referees now, and it appears to be an incredible 2 feet long. Folks, I guess it's true what they say about black men, especially black men with large feet! The sight of this incredible feat of sportsmanship and spunk has left this announcer all choked up. It's truly a momentous day for roundball fans everywhere!"
And Lady Sarcasm scored a field goal with...
"Nothing but rim!"
But it was Chris@Maugeritaville who came through with the three pointer in overtime with my favourite:
That's one magic Johnson.
Congrats to everyone for playing. Chris, you can now cheer...

Sorry about the above deletion.

I haven't had enough DDP yet. I skipped every other word! None of it made sense!

Anyhoo...congrats to Maestro Chris and all the other honorable mentions!

My brain could not come up with a funny for this one. Thank goodness there will be more opportunities. And I will try again.

dizzblnd: Yep the quality was mighty high.

Quirks: 1)why should today be any different ;) 2)Like Long John Silver used to say: "I'll keep an eye out for ya, matey"
You know, I thought I was pretty smart with the wonderfully subtle "He scores, he shoots!" But Chris@Maugeritaville definitely hit the penis on the head with "That's one magic Johnson." I laughed out loud when I read that, so kudos to Chris, who deserved to win hands down!

Congrats!

Speaking of weiners, the mystery shrouding the 8 pack Oscar Mayer weiners and the 12 pack hot dog buns. Why is that?
I had actually thought of another one but didn't submit it...

"This wasn't the first time Nelson had been hit in the face with the ball, but it WAS the most awkward."

Thanks for the award!

Mike WJ: They were all creative and mighty fine but Chris put me over the edge.

lotgk: We have the reverse problem in Canada. Burger and diogs come in 12 packs but the buns are packaged as 8s. WTF?

Chris: I anticipated answers referring to full Nelsons but didn't anticipate johnsons! Way to go guy!

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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
