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 - 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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
