What A Pair!

For some reason, this week's picture attracted a lot of attention. Go figure. Speaking of figures, this one generated some excellent captions and the task of deciding a winner this time around was an extremely difficult one. I could have really used some support this week as my challenge was very difficult, not to put too fine a point on it.

We had a few boobies, er, I mean noobies this week and I thank them for their uplifting comments.

Our runners-up (those that we can repeat) include...

"Funny. I've looked all over and there's no "check" on this engine, anywhere!"

Ozzie Phil of Phils Phun

"There's something wrong with my headlights."

and CatLady Larew

"Dumb blondes... can't live with 'em, can't run 'em over."

But this week we have a first! As a testament to the quality of our captions, and consistent with this week's pic, we have a pair of winners. Here they are:

one of the coolest ladies on the interwebs and fellow caption contest host ettarose

Mary Jane wished Hank would hurry and change the tire, it was getting harder to hold up the bumper.

and, until now, always the bridesmaid never the bride lotgk

Finally the planets aligned correctly as Larry, a red meat eating, baby seal killer, and hater of everything P.E.T.A. exacts revenge on Pamela Anderson.


Way to go guys, you be hangin' with Dufus! Check out all of these guys' sites. They be funny, funny folk. And thanks to everyone for drooping, er, ah, dropping by.

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 …
