Pause, Ponder and Pun

Last week we ran our first Pause, Ponder and Pun. A rousing success, it generated significant interest and Renal Failure walked off with the hardware. This week's pic has a sports theme. See if you can come up with the funniest caption...

Leave your caption in the comments and tune in Saturday to see who Be Hangin' With Dufus.

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!"
Hey, Duke, when did you start shaving?
Hey, Duke, is that the new Axe Body Spray I'm tasting?

"Nothing but rim!"
That's one magic Johnson.
Duke's star forward dribbles twice and then slams it home!

As Jenkins drove to the basket, Nelson picked an inopportune time to yawn.

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.
