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.

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 …
