We Have A Wiener

Okay, folks. We had some dufus "drive-bys" who didn't deign us with their participation, but nevertheless we had an excellent turnout for our inaugural run at this.. The crazies have captioned and the all-powerful-and-knowing supreme punster extraordinaire has considered all submissions. This was tough. It was a close call. Very, very close. All of our captioning crew exhibited tremendous talent in attempting to come up with the winning caption to this:

Everyone provided funny captions. In particular, honourable mentions go to:

Now that I've got her attention, I'm gonna burn that babe's pants off.

Fab Morvan, surviving member of the popular song duo Milli Vanilli, trying to make ends meet since his singing credentials were exposed in 1990.

But the submission that had me snorting my Corona outta my nostrils was...

Be careful who you let go down on you. Be very careful.

Renal Failure, I hereby present you with the coveted

I Be Hangin' With Dufus

award, as well as the much sought after 500 EC credits (electrifying comments on my blog). Congratulations and display it in good health. To the rest of my captioners, good job and good luck next week!

Anyone going by Renal Failure deserves an award. Way to go. It was indeed funny as hell.
Thanks for the honorable mention too! Much appreciated especially since I don't do these contest much because my ego takes too many hits. Hehehe...

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.

Who spoke to his enemies in disguise
