Paws, Ponder and Pun

There were a lot of good captions this week.  It was hard to narrow the submissions down.  Thanks to all who played along.

Moooooog had me chuckling with:

Look at the crazy guy wearing a purple shirt.


Ziva had a good one with:

E.T. knew he was different when he hit puberty and all the girls ever wanted to do was phone home.


Skye had a zinger with:

Look what happened to me.  She said it was Love Potion #9.  How am I supposed to get any lovin' looking like this?


But it was Mike at Too Many Mornings who came through with this week's winner:


The more Jenny talked to Zorax, the more he seemed out of this world.



Congrats, Mike.  You be hangin' with the dufus this week.  Well done!

Congrats to Mike. That was a good one.
Ziva said…
Hell yeah, honorable mentions two weeks in a row, that's almost as good as winning, right? No? Crap.

Congrats Mike, awesome job on the caption!

Quirks: Easy, easy. You don't know your own strength.

Jayne: It's the most Mike's written in 2 weeks!
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: He done, dudn't he?
Donnie said…
Yea Mike. So Jenny is her name huh? What's her friends name. The one talking to Borat.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Always wondering if they've got a friend, eh Don?
I actually woke up this morning thinking, "Oh, crap. I had a better caption for NoName's contest." Then I resigned myself to losing again, because I don't think I've ever won one of these caption contests, and deservedly so. The caption I dreamed up was, "Nobody was surprised when Jenny fell for Zorax. She'd always been attracted to men with foreign accents."

Anyway, thanks NoName! I'm starting my day with a big smile. :)

CatLady: I am an alien.
Quirky: Ouch! Can you do that again, butt lower? ;)
Jayne: I used to be a writer. Lately, though, I'm more of a photographer.
Don: I think it's Natalie. And, like you, I can't decide which of the Scandanavian sisters has the worse date.

Mike: Congratulations, guy.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
