Pause Ponder and Badges

OK, here's what my caption to this week's pic would have been...



Treasure of The Sierra Madre. A classic with Humphrey Bogart. I love this line!

Speaking of classics, there were many in our captions this week. It was really tough to choose one over the other.

For example, Whitey - you guys all remember Whitey, my brother - shot me with...

Thirty some years later, The Jackson's are No. 1 with a bullet again.


My pal Quirkyloon took it out of the holster this week and gave us...

Post Apocalyptic group, Earth, Wind and Gunfire hits number one song: We Are The World!


Recent winner Renal Failure pistol-whipped us with...

What Glenn Beck sees whenever President Obama is on TV


And Chris, our favourite Knucklehead rifled around a little before coming up with...

Ladies and Gentlemen, YOUR BOSTON CELTICS!


But the satirist of St. Catherines, Ontario Frank Lee Meidere blasted both barrels with his winning round...

Directing under the name Isaac Washington (his iconic bartender character in "The Love Boat") Ted Lange has just released his cinematic reboot of "The Mod Squad."

Way to go Frank, you crazy Canuck. You be hangin' with dufus this week. And you get my stinkin' badges!


And congratulations and thanks to all who played. You're real "tough guys" from which to pick a winner. (Awkward, but it didn't end in a preposition!)

Nice going Frank. Is that Richard Pryor second from right or did that guy just borrow his teeth?

Congrats Frank!

And congrats to the honourables.

Ha! "Stinkin' badges" - I first heard that in Blazing Saddles. Yeah, it's a great line!

Oh yeah? I don't need no stinkin' batches either!

hee hee

Congrats to the "dere"! And thanks for the honorable mention.

Now I've got that earwom of a song stuck inside my head. I know, I know, I have only myself to blame.

"No one, no one..no one ever is to blame."

Woops, wrong group. Sorry Mr. Howard Jones.
Awright! An honourable mention (did I use the "u" right?)!

Don: That's him! Before he blew himself up freebasing.

00dozo: It's a classic, often misquoted line parodied in Blazing Saddles. I can't get it out of my head.

Quirks: Batches of what?

Chris, Yes, you're now an honourary Canadian (note the u). Well done.
I've been so out of touch I didn't even catch this. Thanks, John. The only complaint I have about hangin' with the dufus is that those damned clothes pegs really pinch. Next time I'll wear looser clothes, like you.

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
