50th Pause Ponder and Pun


Yeah, I wish. No this post has nothing to do with a 50 foot woman, I just liked the poster. But it is the 50th edition of Pause Ponder and Pun. Thirteen months ago, on August 5, 2009, I launched PPP because, as I said at the time...

"...lately there's a dearth of caption contests out there. Poor old Joe at Crochety Old Man has been laid up in the hospital and re-hab and been unable to award his Zucchini for what is perhaps the best weekly caption contest on the interwebz. And Chica at Lady Sarcasm awarded her last cherished Kick Ass Captioneer award a week or so ago. And, horror of horrors, the caption kings and awarders of the Twinsey Award, Philip and Douglas - the Dyer Boys - have gotten out of the blogging business altogether!"

Since then, people like ettarose and the Screaming MeMe, who both ran caption contests, stopped blogging. Boy, has the captioning landscape changed in just a year.

So folks, I have you to thank for coming back each week and keeping this little caption contest up and running. You guys are the funniest captionistas on the interwebs, to be sure. My deepest thanks. We now return to our regularly scheduled program...

Now in keeping with today's theme, here's a cheesy pic of 50 Cent and Tyra Banks...


We'll see you Saturday with the 50th anniversary winner!

Congrats on your 50th!! And thanks for continuing the caption contests!

Here's mine:

50 Cent lets one rip as he plays his version of "pull my finger" with Tyra.

Hell, I'm still thinking about that 50ft. tall woman knowing now that I'm all grown up why all of those cars below her were crashing.

"Let me see if we can't find a penny behind your ear.. Score! It's 50 cent!"

Wow, 50, that's a pimpin' pimple you got there!

50 Cent's stock plummets when Tyra pulls a quarter from his ear.

..and then Tyra pulled off the mask to reveal that 50 Cent has just been Carrot Top all along.

Don: You think she pulled a Britney Spears? Yeah, I guess even granny panties don't come in quadruple XXX size.

I miss Me Me and Joe, though he still blogs occasionally. And Ettarose was awesome. I miss all those guys but I don't miss their caption contests, I suck at them. I do enjoy reading all of the captions but I get writers block and caption envy because my brain just doesn't think that way until after I have left a stupid comment, usually hours after, and it's too late to go back because someone else has said basically the same thing, and it was lame anyway.

Feigning interest in his cute earlobes, Tyra wipes off some of her excessive leg moisturizer from her fingers.

Oh I miss Joe and MeMe wicked hard! And I miss the others too! And Chelle! I know, she didn't do caption contests, I just miss her wicked humor.

Congrats to you for keeping us on our captioning toes!

And Vicki stole (hee hee) my idea. I was thinking along the lines of a nice pimple to pop. I've never met a pimple I didn't want to pop.

Hey! Maybe that should be my caption.

"I've never met a pimple, I didn't want to pop!"

hee hee

Congrats on the 50th PPP, Dufus! And thanks for providing such a fun and safe haven for us captioners to congregate without the fear of being arrested for indecent composure.

Here's mine:

"Aww, you have a tattoo of a kitten behind your ear! That's so gangsta!"
Leeuna said…
Congratulations on your 50th caption contest, Dufe. I think I'll sit this one out because I've drawn a complete blank on the photo. I think it's because of all that Vaseline on Tara's legs. It's blinding.
Leeuna said…
Sorry, I meant Tyra's legs not Tara's.

Tyra's failed attempt at the Vulcan Nerve Pinch has some unexpected results. She'll have to throw that couch out now.
Happy 50th, Dufus! That's a lot of hangin'! Congratulations!

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
