On The Horns of a Dilemma

We had some great captions this week.  You guys keep nailin' it week in and week out.  And it's hard to pick just one winner, let alone several honourable mentions.  

But let' try.  Skye was on target with...

You are so lucky that my horns didn't spear you when I did this back-flip, but could ya give me a hand here, I'm kinda stuck now!?!

I liked Cat Lady's effort, for obvious reasons.  She taunted us with...

Damn... that bull be hangin' with Dufus!

And Tgoette showed his stuff with this crowd pleaser...

Roberto and his pet bull, Paco, show the crowd the feat that gained him national recognition on David Letterman's "Stupid Pet Tricks".

But it was my dear friend Quirkyloon who came up with the winner this week, and ran (bull) rings around her competitors...

You put your left horn in
You put your left horn out
You put your left horn in
And you shake it all about
You do the toreador pokey
And you get stuck in the ground
That's what its all about!

Arriba arriba!

Okay, there, Quirks, my be hangin' with the Dufus!!!  Congrats to all and we'll see you Wednesday for our next contest.

I still think the bullfighters look gay. Dammit! There goes my homophobia again. Down boy! Down!

Can I just say (tear drop) that I really needed this right now?

You don't know what the salve you just applied to my inner beast psyche.

I knew there was a reason you were my HOMIE!

Thank-you. *sob*

Don't worry, they're tears of joy.

Tears of joy.

Don: Hey, they don't call them gay caballeros for nothing. If nothing else, they are colourful.
nonamedufus said…
mama-face: The gift? Indeed.
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: ...and rolls.

Quirks: Wow, are you going through a Law and Order withdrawal? Way to go Quirks. I love a happy winner! And you're a happy winner with or without this contest!
FreakSmack said…
gratzi gratzi... wait, I think that means thanks, I meant to say the Italian word for congratulations, but I don't know it :(
nonamedufus said…
Freak Smack: Why it's congratulazioni! You're welcome!
Tgoette said…
Congrats Quirkyloon! A very clever job. Thanks for the mention, Dufus!
nonamedufus said…
Tgoette: Hey, my pleasure. That's what it's all about.
I'm glad I couldn't come up with anything for this one because Quirky's was soooooo good. Very funny thought she had there, and win she did deserve to. Wow. Turned into Yoda have I.

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.
