Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

This guy's butt ugly and some folks made a real ash of themselves this week trying to come up with a great caption. For example...

See? Smoking does NOT stain your teeth!

Donna with:

Now that's what I call a butt head.

Nobody ever told George that medical marijuana wouldn't work for sinus and ear infections.

But the winner this week has to be newcomer Jeremy from We Took The Bait and his caption of:

Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard attempts to calm his nerves before the opening game of the World Series.

Yeah, Jeremy! Congrats to all for their great captions but this week Jeremy be hangin' with Dufus!

Those were all good captions. Tough decision. I stared at that picture about two minutes and still couldn't come up with anything other than I wanted a cigarette and I don't even smoke anymore!

Don: You and me both!
Me-Me King said…
Congrats Jeremy - good job!

Now, where's my lighter?

Definitely all good captions.

Congrats Jeremy!

Captioning contests are always so much fun, even though I usually suffer from brain farts while attempting to caption.

I think I'm saving up for a zucchini! DOM? Are you there?

Me-Me: Oh, you're funny!

Quirks: You're gonna smoke a zucchini?
Megan said…
Congrats to Jeremy!
Leeuna said…
Congrats to Jeremy. Yeah, it does kinda make you want a smoke, doesn't it.
nonamedufus said…
Megan: Jeremy literally lit things up around here with his caption.
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna: Do you think smoking's addictive after viewing that photo?
Donna said…
Congrats Jeremy! Those were some tough captions to go through. Hey!I think we all like them.HA!
nonamedufus said…
Donna: Jeremy da man!
Skye said…
Congrats Jeremy!

I already had a smoke going when I first saw the pic, and it made me want to light up another
nonamedufus said…
Skye: Ah, a multi-tasker!
Thanks, everyone!

I'm honored to be hangin' with the Dufus.
nonamedufus said…
Jeremy: Good on ya, dude.
Quirkyloon said…
Definitely all good captions.

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
