Pause Ponder Pun and Sunshine

What a gorgeous day in the neighbourhood, Mr. Rogers.  It's 28 in the nation's capital.  That's 82 for my American friends.  And the sun is just beating down.  What great weather for the first Saturday of April!  And what better time to tell you that my good friend Cat Lady Larew bestowed a Sunshine Award upon me earlier this week. Isn't that cool?!  Thanks CL.


I'll tell you what else is cool.  The submissions to this week's Pause Ponder and Pun were hilarious.  I tell you it gets harder each week to narrow down these captions to just one winner.

See for yourself.

Ziva came up with a real zinger...

C'mon honey, it's only until death do us part.


Kelly cracked me up with...

I swore I would get married by age 30 no matter what and you...are...it!


Webless 00dozo offered...

"It's not that I can't, I just don't wanna do the 'Chicken Dance'!"


But it was newcomer Malisa who really made me laugh with...



According to the new Health Care Bill, all newlyweds MUST perform warm up exercises prior to the honeymoon to avoid catastrophic medical expenses.

Ha, ha, congrats Malisa.  You be hangin' with the dufus this week.  Good on ya!  And Happy Easter!!!

Thanks to everyone for playing.  See y'all next week.  Hey, and click through and visit these guys' blogs.  Tell 'em you've been hangin' with dufus.

Normally, I would have thought the winning caption to be funny. Unfortunately, it may be true as well. Government at it's finest!

Well, they say preventive medicine is best, I guess. Congrats Malisa!
Skye said…
Happy Easter to you as well Sir. Temps here are reaching the high teens translating into the 40's for those who read English and not Canadian...lol.

Now if I can just get my add a new post page to open fully, I'll be able to put in a post about what I've been doing the last little while. Work aside of course!

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

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…
