Angel Ayes

We had some great captions this week. It was hard to decide on a winner. For example, I loved Me-Me's caption:

Not only is Melvin wresting with his saint and sinner sides, he's also wrestling with keeping his pants up

Another great line came from last week's winner, moooooog, with:

Geppetto couldn't help but feel deeply disappointed at how his little boy ended up turning out.

But I've got to go with the caption from our latest member of the humour blog Witness Protection Program, DK@Knucklehead who came up with...

As the police report would later reflect, Howard's GPS had inadvertently taken him to Charlotte, North Carolina and their "Dale Earnhardt Jr. Day" parade.

DK...need I say it? You be hanging' with the Dufus. Congratulations man.


Meanwhile, here in Dufus land it was a kinda exciting week. Quirkyloon bestowed upon me her rarely awarded Quombie award for my efforts at Zombie poetry last week. Thanks, Quirks but no, you can't eat my blog brain. As anyone who reads this blog knows there's precious little left up there as it is! Check out this and other awards by visiting my dufushardware page.

And still in the "pat my own back" department nonamedufus squeeked into the Top Ten this week over at Blog Storm and Humor-Blogs Dot Com. Not bad, since there's roughly 2,000 blogs registered over there. My sincerest thanks to those who have helped get me there. Please feel free to visit these sites and rate my blog.

And finally, nonamedufus achieved a minor milestone this week when, on Wednesday, for the first time ever, over 200 people visited this blog in a day. I don't know just where that sits compared to other blogs out there. I know there are many blogs who, through active self-promotion, achieve a lot more visitors. But, hey, for my money I'm thrilled and I want to thank everyone for stopping by, reading, laughing and leaving a comment.
Cheers and thanks!


Hey, Mr. Dufus, congratulations on the 200. You deserve it and more...

On the caption: As a Jeff Gordon fan, I love that caption. :)

Thanks, Dufus!

UR: Yeah, I don't know what 200 means exactly but it works for me.

CatLady: Well it's due to daily visitors like you CL. Keep coming back, eh?

Don: Remember Sally Fields at the Oscars? Don't wanna go there.

DK: Oh yeah, I was running a contest. This is about you, man. Congratulations.

SG46: Yeah, I like that analogy. Thanks for visiting. Good to see you again.

Me-Me: It was a great caption.
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: Oh and yours wasn't too shabby. It made an HM!
Congrats on the 200, NoName. And congrats to the very talented, very anonymous DK. You're both winners in my eyes.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
