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.

Leeuna said…
Hahaaa! Congrats Kablooey. That was a good one. They were all funny and the photo itself was a hoot.
nonamedufus said…
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!
Ziva said…

nonamedufus said…

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…
