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!

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 …
