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!
Quirkyloon said…
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 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?
nonamedufus said…
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.

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…
