Do We Have a Winner? Well, That Depends

You know, the wrong-righters over at Humor Bloggers Dot Com are fighting injustice this month. How's this for an injustice: there's only one winner in our caption contest. There was no shortage of great captions to toss around, though. And the judges had a tough time wrestling with their decision.

Don pinned down:

The Olympic swim team...see what Jenny Craig can do for you.

Not to be cornered, Knucklehead countered with:

Not too long afterward a fight broke out at the Japanese Village People auditions, amidst screams of "I GET TO BE THE SUMO WRESTLER"

And Haley got a headlock on the competition with:

And with the swimsuit competition finished the judges will now tally the scores and announce the next Mr Newark, NJ 2009

But link-less newcomer ba_hutch went the full 3 rounds with:

To show the world there is no shame in adult incontinence, Huggies recently hosted a huge "Don't Hold Back" conference where they rolled out their new line of sumo-depends. Rumour has it that suspender-depends are not far off...

Congrats be hangin' with Dufus this week!

Speaking of injustuces, hey, look what I got! I won ettarose's "craption" contest last Saturday. You know, of course, ettarose was the one who put the turd in Saturday.

Her pic and my "craption" can be found here. I guess I keep doing something wrong cause ettarose keeps giving me shit. This is the third turd I've won over there. My hardware page is startin' to stink to high heaven. Thanks ettarose! I think we may have started a mutual admiration society here that others may not think is fair. We can call it the "you-me" club. You know, as in-just-us!

Quirks: Sounds like a contradiction in terms to me - Depends Thongs?
ba_hutch said…
Wow! I won?!? I forget was there a cash prize? ... NO? Well, that's OK, I've been wantin' to be hangin' with Nonamedufus so that's cool enough.

(Yes it is true, I am linkless, but you can visit my Dad at Secondary you can see, I am not rootless.)

Anyway, thanks for the great pictures, and I love your HHG2TU "Don't Panic" tag...I have a towel and crackers with me, just in case.

ba_hutch: No dough. You'll just have to bask in the richness associated with hangin' with dufus who, by the way, is big on Douglas Adams, as you've quite correctly observed...

Congratulations to ba-hutch, very funny!

And congrats to you, dufus, for winning a pile of crap.

Well-deserved honor, Ba-Hutch. Huggies should put you on the payroll. Thanks for the most-excellent laugh.
Don said…
Hahaha! Some funny stuff there. Hey, congrats to you too for your super pooper effort in scooping up etta's crappy award.
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: Hey, I'm proud of my pile of crap!
nonamedufus said…
WordWire: Huggies or Depends.
nonamedufus said…
Don: I've got so much I've got to be careful not to step in it!
ettarose said…
Hey my friend, I would hang with you always, just us two. I am an ass for not getting over here. I should post my own picture and have people call me names. What you think? You are my pal and deserve all the shit I have ever given you. You are welcome.
nonamedufus said…
ettarose: More folks should check out your a manner of speaking.
Knucklehead said…
I happily and humbly accept the honorable mention. Thanks, 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.

Who spoke to his enemies in disguise
