Pause Ponder and Pokey

"On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me six ladies having a bizarre break with tea"

Okay that was mine. Pretty lame, huh? Let's see what you guys came up with this week.

My dear pal Quirkyloon - I think she's actually in the picture - exercised her funny bone with:

"You put the wiggle here, 
you put the jiggle out, 
you put the wiggle and it gets shaken all about! 
You do the Jiggle Pokey and it turns you all around...
that's what it's all about! clap, clap"


Renal Failure gave us a real workout with:

Penny Marshall cut this scene out of A League of Their Own for reasons that are all too obvious...


My good pal Ray over on Facebook pumped things up with his effort:

Must be tryouts for the 1930 Chicago Bears Cheerleaders




And leave it to Ziva to "work it" with:

Ladies synchronized bondage - it's all in the matching outfits.


But Leeuna had me aspiring to be perspiring with her winning missive:

"The FDA recently approved the use of the belt sander as a tool for waist reduction. Side effects may include blood and tissue loss and extreme pain. May cause scarring."


W00T, W00T (do they still say that - whoever "they" are?) Leeuna, you be the lucky captionista who be hangin' with dufus this week. Congratulations.


Thanks to all for playing along. C'mon back next week and bring your friends.

Talk about feeling the burn. Congrats, Leeuna.

Congrats Leeuna! "belt sander" bwahahahaha!

And, of course, congrats to the honourables!

It took me a while to come up with that one. I'm honored to be hangin' with dufus this week. All the comments were hilarious.

Congrats Leeuna, that was one painfully hilarious caption! And thanks Dufus for the honorable mention!

Well, boo! I missed the caption contest. I bet you'd like playing "Captcha Balderdash" on my site! I do it a couple of times a month. It CRACKS ME UP! Basically, people make up definitions of the Captcha word they've been given when they leave a comment. Here's the link: http://kelleysbreakroom.blogspot.com/2010/08/captcha-balderdash-2_11.html. I hope you'll stop by & play. :)

Quirks: I thought I spotted you!

Don: That's back in the day when vibrators were for losing weight. I don't think these ones gave personal gratification.
nonamedufus said…
KABLOOEY: Yeah, I wonder how long they had to go on those things?
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: And people think it can be painful to lose weight nowadays. Look what these women had to go through.
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna: Congratulations, congratulations. Great caption.

Ziva: Hey, happy to include you in the honourees.

Kelly: I'll have to come by. I've done several posts defining captchas myself.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
