Awards

TA - DAH!!!

Can you guess what these are? Melted frisbees? Coins a little kid left on the railway track? Pancakes left out in the sun? Nope, nope and nope. They were unveiled Thursday as the gold, silver and bronze medals for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Like 'em or not they're certainly different. Me? I like 'em. They're kinda cool.

Speaking of awards, another week, another awards day Saturday. Boy the captions were good this week. It was even tough picking Honourable Mentions. I was a little fuzzy on this pic myself. It was an arresting image, to say the least. But the winner screamed out at me like a siren. *rolls eyes*



This week's HM's go to:

Carl Vine said...

The L.A. Police, in an effort to soften their bad-boy image, are testing a fleet of prototype vehicles. Here, Officer Golstrom demonstrates a model with a convenient donut basket.

George was delighted to be accepted into the Barbie Police Academy. He gets his pink uniform next week.

Brian Miller said...

due to the budget crunch...police have downsized their pursuit vehicles...the reduction in crime is attributed to suspects laughing to death.


But our hands-up winner this week has got to be Joel Klebanoff who hit me where I live, with:

The Aylmer, Quebec police force has had to make a few cutbacks.


Little does Joel - or anybody else - know but the Aylmer police force is suffering through cutbacks and have been working without a contract for two years. They wear camouflage pants and jeans to express their displeasure.


So, Joel, congratulations dude. You be hangin' with dufus!!!




And now it's my pleasure to acknowledge a few recognitions from my peers this week. Frank Lee Mei Dear enjoyed my political satire posts Slings and Arrows and slipped me this Your Blog Is Fabulous award. Thanks, Frank!

ettarose at Sanity on Edge went MIA a couple of weeks ago. Turns out she had to go out of town to attend to some family matters. A few of us left comments expressing our concern and you know what she did. She gave us each a mention on her blog and an award of thanks for our metaphorical hugs. Cool, ettarose.


And finally, I won Kirsten's Mom Likes Me Best caption contest last week! Again!!!
For the background to these awards and links to these amazing sites just click on the link to my awards page on the right sidebar. Thanks, folks.

To my readers: I'm having a problem today with hyper-links. Got a new MacBookPro and I think I need a tutorial. Please bear with me.

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!"
