Pause Ponder and Perambulate


One day while I was out for my daily perambulation, I took a wrong "turn". Well I was fit to be "tied" when I discovered I'd gotten off on the wrong "track". I was lost and finding my way back is something I'd never been "train"-ed to do. But enough about me. This contest is about you...and your comments.  Some interesting captions this week - from the cerebral to the comic. From the sub-"line" to the ridiculous. Judge for yourself...

00dozo chugged in with:

"Now where did I put that penny?"


00dozo was smoking with a second caption:

"I think I can, I think I can..."


LOTGK had me going off the rails with:

Arlo Guthrie as a young child.


Blogless ba_hutch tied the other honourable mentions with:

This is obviously a photo of Adam West from his screen test for Batman.



And Ziva steamed into the station with:

The original teaser for the movie Trainspotting.


But my favourite this week comes from KABLOOEY who really had me whistling:

Barney's family knows they should take him to a doctor, but they're saving so much gas money.



Alright, KABLOOEY, you da man... er, ah, woman. You be hanging' with dufus this week. Congratulations.

And congratulations to our runners up and everyone else who played. Track us down next Wednesday for more Pause Ponder and Pun. And if you're (Casey) "Jones"-in for more blogging blather, visit these guys' websites. They won't bite. They might lick you, but they won't bite.

Don: ha, ha...good one. Hey, I was beginning to think you were MIA. Maybe ran into some trouble toting that Glock.
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna: The quality of the captions people leave just go up and up. It's getting harder to pick a winner these days.
K A B L O O E Y said…
Oh, yes! I'm so happy. Never been close before. I'm really honored. Even though captioning isn't really a competition and it's an honor just to be nominated with this esteemed panel of captioners. I just want to thank my parents (llooks to heavens... this one's for you, dad!) and God. Because God was surely hanging on the edge of his throne looking out for me. Thanks dufus!
nonamedufus said…
KABLOOEY: Hey, its' our winner. KABLOOEY. Congratulations KABLOOEY. Well done. Yaayyyyy!

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 …
