Pause, Ponder and Pun

Oh man, I'm not gonna touch this one.

I'll just leave it to my loyal followers to see if they can wrestle with their imaginations and come up with a heavy-duty caption.

Leave me a comment and we'll see you Saturday with a winner, I assumo. *groans*

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

Sure, it may look cruel, but it's the only way to break a new fluffer in.
Skip Simpson said…
Hey! Check out the new guy in the red thong!

This may be a Sumo wrestling event, but the guy in the back of the line is wearing an adult diaper.

Man, I'm a day late and a dollar short with this one... too many great captions already! Moooooog, Me-Me, Knucklehead, Sumo Cum Laude, you all beat me to the proverbial punch. (But I'll keep my thinking cap on!)

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. Rumor has it that suspender-depends are not far off...

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.
