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.

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
