Pause Ponder and Pinch/Sunday Funnies

So here are the results for our 50th Pause Ponder and Pun caption contest.  I'm so excited I got a little head start on our *hic* celebrating. I used to drink "50" in my youth, in the days before Canadian breweries had long-neck bottles. These beers came in "stubbies". Okay, enough with the history lesson - and the nasty diminutive sexual innuendos. Let's see what our captioners brewed up this week...

Tgoette "gave" us:

"Aww, you have a tattoo of a kitten behind your ear! That's so gangsta!:

Moooooog made his "presents" known with:

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

Whitey - you all remember my older brother Whitey - "gifted" us with:

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

Newcomer ♥ Vicki ♥ "unwrapped" this one:

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

But it was Renal Failure who "blew out the candles" with:

Tyra's failed attempt at the Vulcan Nerve Pinch has some unexpected results. She'll have to throw that couch out now.

Way to go R.F. You be the winner of the 50th anniversary edition of Pause Ponder and Pun. You da man and you be hangin' with the dufus! w00t, w00t (Will someone please tell me what the hell that means?)

I don't know how you folks did it. This must have been the lamest pic I've posted yet but the captions were hilarious. Thanks to all for playing this week - and over the last year. See y'all next week.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

Congrats to Renal Failure! And 'pennies' for the thoughts of the honourees!

"50" in a stubby! I used to drink that! *burp*

You scored a touchdown with the funnies this week, dufus! ("Kindle" - bwhahahaha!)

00dozo: Ah, a fellow 50 imbiber! I loved that kindle cartoon too.

Mucho congratulations to Renal Failure and all of his/her fifty alternate personalities! hee hee

AND how kind of you Nomie to share with us your latest brain scan!

hee hee

Quirks: Yeah that's right RF does have multiple personalities.

Actually, my real brain scan came back from the doctor's. They couldn't find anything. Ba-rump-bump.
Don said…
Have to hand it to Renal Failure. That was very clever and actually made me laugh. Something about sexual under/overtones do that to me. Make me laugh I mean.

Don: That was somewhat of a titillating comment, Don. nyuk, nyuk.
Hey, NoName, I've been kind of taking a break but I wanted to let you know that you're doing a great job. That 9/11 tribute was awesome (I'd never see the firetruck photo before, and it's frightening), and who needs brain cells when you've got a 4-hour erection? Congratulations on the successful completion of your radiation treatements. I know it sucked.

Mike: We all need a break from time to time. I took 3 weeks away from the blog over the summer. But I see you've been going back through some of my previous posts of the week and that's great. I appreciate your visit and your kind words. I look forward to your return.

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…
