American Idle

Another week, another crop of crazy captions.  I've gotta commend folks.  Week in, week out our participants demonstrate their gift for vivid imaginations.

Let' get to this week's whacky witticisms...

Quirky got us rockin' with:

David Bowie's love children band together to promote their new reality show: the Punkdashian sisters.


we took the bait let loose with:

Susan, Nicole and Donna (from left) anxiouly waiting backstage for the idols - the Wiggles - to arrive.


Ziva shook, rattled and rolled with:

Ever since Marissa decided to wear her peacock, she has single-handedly triggered more epilepsy seizures than the Teletubbies together.


And, finally, Don got down with:

The new Girl Scouts.  It's not just about the cookies anymore.


But it was Nooter who struck a chord with his winning entry:


(from the future)
now in its 28th season, as american idol struggles more than ever to keep from losing audience share, producers introduce a new segment called 'remember when'. this week, the band 'stiff nipples' performs the golden oldie 'my tattoos ate your baby'.

judge simon cowell, appearing slumped over in his wheelchair during much of the performance, finally commented 'that sounded like a monkey dancing on broken glass. it was utterly fantastic'. he then wet himself and was wheeled offstage.




Way to go Nooter.  I be howlin' and you be hangin'...with the Dufus!  Oww-wooooo!

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 …
