Pause Ponder and Punt

There were some great captions this week.  For example Don demonstrated terrific punmanshp with...

The Pillsbury Doughboy will be sure to knead the team into a cohesive unit.

Ziva demonstrated her hunger to win with...

They knew little Jimmy had an eating problem when the football went missing mid-game.

And our good buddy Moooooog gave us something to Cheers about

Kirstey Alley plays football?!?!

But Mad Mad Margo has the week's winner...

Clearly a case of dunlap disease...his belly done lapped over the top of his pants.

Way to go Margo.  You be hangin' with the Dufus.  Uh, keep your germs to yourself.

Good job Margo, you done good :D

Skye: Her answer made me laugh out loud!
Don said…
Hahaha. Thanks John and way to go Margo. That sounds like a southerner speaking though. Where'd you come up with that?
nonamedufus said…
Don: If that guy can make it to the NFL, he'll be rolling in dough!

I'm still laughing out loud at Margo's caption!

She's a funny chick!

Good honorable mentions too.
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: It was a good crop of captions this week, for sure.
Me-Me King said…
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Wow, I should try captioning under the influence more often.

Dunlap Disease is a "southern" term. Thanks for noticing, Don! Remember, I am from Arkansas.

Thanks, Dufus, I'll add this badge to my blog as soon as I can find it again.

Me-Me: Well your caption had me laughin', which was pretty good as I could hardly breathe.
injaynesworld said…
Oh yeah... Margo totally rocked that one. Good job, girlfriend!
Tgoette said…
Way to go, Margo! I guess it's unanimous - drugs and captions go together!
nonamedufus said…
Jayne: In the words of a gal with her finger up her nose, she picked a winner!
nonamedufus said…
Tgoette: I'm gonna try that approach next week.
Ziva said…
Awesome, an honorable mention. Give me another week (or five) and I'll have worked up the punning skills to be hanging with the Dufus. Maybe...

Margo's caption was definitely laugh out loud funny. Great job!
nonamedufus said…
Ziva: I know you can do it!
Dude, not that I'm a sore loser or anything (but admit it, "eating the passer" was hilarious), but that Dunlap's Disease line is older than dirt.


Congratulations, Margo.

Chris: There were several "eating" themed captions, one of which made it into the honourable mentions. "Eating the passer" was funny to be sure. But sometimes "older" can be funny too. Look at me, for example...on a good day.

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.
