Barber Boo-Boo

Long back and sides, a little off the top?

That was mine. But there were others who made the cut this week in our Halloween edition of Pause, Ponder and Pun. For example Moooooog split my gut with his caption of:

Shit like this is why I don't go to Supercuts any more.

ba_hutch (no link, sorry) cut me up with:

I really love my creation -- it fits you so well. I can see your inner beauty.

And "Lothario" Don buzzed in with:

She's picking my brain. She must like me.

But Leeuna scored a close shave with her winning caption of:

Will I still be able to do the comb over thing?

Leeuna, you be hangin' with Dufus! Congratulations.

Quirks: Ha, gives new meaning to the term "skull cap"!
Leeuna said…
Hey that's great. Now Imma be hangin' with the dufus. I'm in with the popular crowd now. (I really enjoy these caption contests. They're so much fun and the comments are all hilarious.)
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna: Do you know the secret handshake?
Me-Me King said…
Congrats Leeuna, funny caption!
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: Imma let you finnish, Me-Me, but Leeuna had a better caption! (nyuk, nyuk)
Don said…
Good for her and congratulations! Something about that picture is sick. Can't decide if it's the girl or the brain. Certainly, it can't be both. They don't go together.
Well deserved, Leeuna! I couldn't think of anything and didn't even try.

Hey, it just dawned on me that Hangin' with Dufus takes on a whole new meaning at Halloween. Or maybe it doesn't. Hmmmm.

Don: It can't be the girl.

MikeWJ: Are you saying you don't wanna be hangin' with Dufus?

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.

"There once was a king very wise
Who spoke to his enemies in disguise
