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.

Hee hee.

Congrats to Leeuna!

And thanks for the honorable mention Sir Nomie!

And yes that is me...the one opening up the Diet Dr. Pepper can! Ha!
Don said…
Damn! The thought of that made me want to start jogging! Ouch!

Talk about feeling the burn. Congrats, Leeuna.

Congrats Leeuna! "belt sander" bwahahahaha!

And, of course, congrats to the honourables!
Leeuna said…
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.
Ziva said…
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: 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.

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.

Who spoke to his enemies in disguise
