Some Stiff Competition


Given the headlines last week, I was sure someone was going to make some reference to new airport security screening methods with a caption like, oh, I don't know...

Bill and Bob, members of the Blue Bird Nudist Society, certainly had no qualms with the new security measures at Detroit airport.


But no, our contestants went in a different direction and the competition was stiff.  For example, VE's entry was:

It took months for the Darwen brothers to realize their act would be much more successful with the ladies if they used top hats.


lotgk came up with:

First two drop outs of the Tareq and Michaele Salahi gate crashers seminar.


But it was Freak Smack who won the day with:

Just as the Johnson Brothers were about to finish their rendition of the striptease from The Full Monty, the crowd begged, "Please, leave your hats on!"





Congratulations Freak Smack.  You be hangin' with Nonamedufus this week.

As I just admitted on MeMe's blog, my synapses were shooting blanks that day. I didn't even try for either caption contest.

Those suckers better get electrified and moving!

Congrats to FreakSmack.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

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 …
