Pause, Ponder and Pun

This isn't what I had in mind when I said Iran's President Ahmadinejad should kiss off.

What did you have in mind?

Take your best shot at this ass is of evil. See you Saturday with a winner.

Hey and follow me on over to Kirsten's, Ettarose's and Mad-Mad Margo's for more captioning challenges. Hurry now. I didn't walk. I ran.

And later that same evening, President Ahmadinejad showed Ben his mighty warhead.

It make take more than mouth-to-mouth to revive Iran's current status.

LMBO at Moooog35 "breath infidels" caption!

That's a good one!


(to the tune of the old Dr. Pepper commercial)
"I'm Ahmadinejad, you're Ahmadinejad, wouldn't you like to kiss Ahmadinejad too?"

Another reason not to let the "terrorists win". This is how they celebrate.

Thinking to self *I'm choking, the heimlich manouver is done with the arms around the chest, isn't it? What does he think he's going to do, suck the crap outta me?*

It's not what you think. Unless you are thinking it is the kiss of death - then it is what you think. Now go hop to that suicide mission.

And the word verification is "gentli"...so do it gentli, gentliman.

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.
