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. :)

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.

Me-Me: It was a great caption.

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 - 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
