Pause Ponder and It Ain't Over 'Till The Fat Lady Showers

This week's pic brought out our real heavyweight captioners.  And there were many good captions made at someone else's expense - the lady in the shower.  But we've got to narrow things down (as should the shower lady) so let's start with our honourable mentions.

00dozo made the lady the butt of her joke with:

"Honey, I've lost the soap again."

Tgoette took a different approach and cracked me up with:

"Hey, I found the remote control!"

And "Boom-Boom" Cat Lady Larew took a musical approach tooting in with:

I like big butts and I can not lie.  Somehow I don't think this is what Sir Mix-a-Lot had in mind...

But Jeremy from We Took The Bait came from behind with this week's winner:

Though he found Stella's request odd, plumber Stanley Walsh installed a shower that sprayed bacon grease in her downstairs bathroom.

Way to go Jeremy, you be hangin' with dufus this week!  Congratulations.

And congratulations to everyone who played this week.  All of your captions were very funny and creative.  I hope to see you next Wednesday for another go.

And PLEASE click on these folks' links.  They've got some of the greatest web stops on the electronic highway.

MMMMMMMMM.... bacon! Well done, Jeremy!

Congrats to Jeremy!

Wow! Another honourable mention! Thanks dufus!

Oh, my! I need to gain about five pounds, but after seeing that photo, I'm rethinking that idea.

Boom-Boom: What do bacon and the lady in the shower have in common? They're stripped.

00dozo: That picture's the best incentive for Weight Watchers I've ever seen.
Don said…
Eeeew! Gross! God, just the thought of that is nauseating. I'd rather eat a shit sandwich rather than bathe or shower with the two legged Mack truck.
nonamedufus said…
Don: This mama's so fat, she got baptized at Sea World!
Thanks, everyone!

Good to be hangin' with the dufus again!

Jeremy: You da man, Jeremy! Woot! (Do they still say that?)
00dozo said…
Oh, nertz! I just thought of another caption. That's me, always late. C'est la vie.

I think "woot" is out, but the 'fist pump' is in - I dunno, I may be wrong - we have to shed 20 years to be in the loop these days.

(I actually was "fist-pumped" by my nephew and his friends once - I felt honoured!)
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: Oh yeah, now it's dawg. In which case it's woof!
I actually like the idea of a bacon grease shower.
nonamedufus said…
Mike: Talk to Jeremy. It was his "sizzling" idea!
Thanks, everyone!

Good to be hangin' with the dufus again!

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.
