Pause Ponder and Paint

Remember this guy?  Who the heck knew what he was doing?  Well some folks stirred things up with their comments and they were so wide ranging that they have no fear of being tarred with the same brush. Let's get started, shall we?

I hope folks don't think I'm giving them the brush off but I simply can't mention everyone.  But here's a few honourable mentions...

CatLadyLarew showed her funny with:

At long last, it was time for Phillip to audition for the Blue Man Group.

lotgk cracked me up with:


And Jeremy from We Took The Bait had me going with:

After racking up a 500 million dollar tab on the first movie, James Cameron simply had to cut some corners on the production of "Avatar 2"

Deb from Debbie Does Drivel dropped by and unloaded a bunch of puns, including:

Steve always did have a reputation for painting things with a broad brush.

But it was Chris@Knucklehead who made me snort my Nestea out my nostril with his winning entry:

Dave promised himself that he would stare at the paintbrush until he was blue in the face.

Congrats Chris! This week, you be hangin' with nonamedufus!!!  Thanks to everyone for playing.  It's getting harder and harder to choose a winner.  But don't let that stop you from comin' back here next week and laying another caption masterpiece on us.

00dozo: All good captions this week. It was a tough choice.
Don said…
Yea Chris! I'm feeling blue already, and the day is just underway.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Awww... going through your blue period?
CatLadyLarew said…
I promise to laugh at Chris's caption til I'm blue in the face! Way to hang with the Dufus, Knucklehead!
nonamedufus said…
CL: Breathe, Boom-Boom, breathe!

It's always fun to read all the entries and to be reminded of many of the funny zingers.

Congrats to Knucklehead.

May be he blessed with a sandwich today.

Quirks: A knuckle sandwich?
Woo hoo! That's right, Pause and Ponder Bitches!

Seriously, though, the first one that popped into my head was pretty much the same as Cat Lady's with the Blue Man Group.

Loved the AVATAR one too.

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.
