Pause Ponder and Parliament

I didn't quite know what to make of our picture this week. But you guys certainly did.

Jeremy from We Took The Bait moved:

Mike LaScala could not resist the urge to crowd ride during the Beastie Boys concert at the Paramus, New Jersey Convention Center.

Bahamian transplanted Canadian 00dozo from When I Reach seconded with:

Fifteen minutes into a Democratic filibuster, Glenn Beck turns into a brain-eating zombie.

Tgoette at Sophiticated Lunacy submitted this private member's bill:

Supporters of the gay rights initiative celebrated passage of the bill with a group hug,

And Whitey - how ya doin' Whitey? - added to the debate with:

Apparently the 54-40 option was voted down.

Now Whitey, a sports nut, went all cerebral on me with his reference to the historical debate of "54-40 or fight" from the 1844 Democratic leadership race. It refers to where the U.S. wanted to draw it's boundary with Canada. The U.S. was a few degrees off, settling on the 49th parallel. Whitey - I'm impressed! (I had to Google it. I thought you were talking about the Canadian rock group!)

But sometimes the simplest caption does the trick. Don from Beyond Left Field won the vote with... 

I want my quarter back! That's my quarter dammit! I was saving that for the bathroom. Now give it here you thief!

I think you'll agree Don aptly captured our government at work. Way to go Don. You be hangin' with dufus. Congratulations.

And once again thanks to all for playing along.

Oh, before I let you go, I wanted to mention Vicki Likes Frogs over at Glitter Frogs gave me an award this week. I'm honoured to have received...

...yep, the One Lovely Blog Award! Isn't that cool. Thanks Vicki!

But that ain't all.

Oslo's own Cruella "Gotta Get To My Thesis" Collett over at The Giraffability of Digressions thinks I'm strangely irresistible. Ahem, well I don't, um, ah, know what to say. What? Oh, my BLOG is strangely irresistible. Oh, okay.

Thanks, Cruella. That's one neat award! Oh, and don't forget to spell-check your thesis, eh. *winks*


Thanks for the honourable mention, Dufus!

And, Congrats, Don!
Don said…
Yeah me! It's about time! Caption contest are not my forte... Although I thought that was kind of funny myself.

You are irresistable! Nothing strange about it! *smile*

And mucho congratulation to Don and the honorable mentions. It's always fun to see what others come up with.

BTW, I like that pic for the irresistable award. It makes me laugh!

Jeremy: Funny caption, Jeremy.
00dozo said…
Congrats Don!

Thanks for the mention, dufus, and congrats to the other honourables.

And, of course, congrats to you, dufus, on those awards!

Don: Congratulations Don. Did you get your quarter back?

Quirky: You know ever since I received that award I've been singing that 80s song "Simply Irresistible" by Robert Palmer. I've got the video stuck in my consciousness, too. Anyone else?
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: They say good things come in threes. Shit, I should buy a lottery ticket.
Cruella Collett said…
Haha, those are great captions. And yes, I'll be spell checking. The error in the award was only mine to pass on, though ;)

For the record, though, I find both you and your blog both irresistible and irresistable!

Cruella: I know, I know. Seriously, thank you so very much for your kind, kind words and your great award.

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!"
