Pause Ponder and Pistol-Whipped

Well everyone took their best shot this week and a few of you just narrowly missed the target. Here are the guys who made it into my sights this week...

You've got me stumped.

The day the Oompa Loompas decided they weren't
gonna take Willy Wonka's shit any more.

Moooooog's small stature didn't stop him from entering
the Thanksgiving turkey shoot.

The Overcompensator fires bullets the size of soda cans
and is guaranteed to drown out the haunting memory of
everyone in high school laughing at you because you didn't
get pubes until you were 17.

But Chris@Knucklehead fired off a winner, and had me choking on my Cheerios with...

And then the little guys got drunk and played a game of Lilliputian Roulette.

Ha, ha, way to go Chris. You be hangin' with dufus! Congratulations my man.

Kudos to all who played along this week. I wish I could publish all the captions 'cause they were all so good. See everyone next Wednesday when you can take another shot at Pause Ponder and Pun.


Hey, thanks for the mention!
I have to agree, that gun does make that guy look like a Lilliputian. Congrats to the winner! - G

Congrats to Chris!

And congrats to all the honourees!

It seemed like most of the captions borrowed from others this week. But that's okay.

Congrats to the Knucklehead! He's got lots of brainz and good ones at that.

Let's hope the zombies don't find out!

00dozo: Yeah, there seemed to be a Clint Eastwood theme running through many of the captions submitted this week.

Quirks: Warning acknowledged.

Boom Boom: I loved yours too. Nor sure Moooooog did.
Awesome! Thanks, Dufus!

Of course, my favorite was the one dissing Moooooog, but that shouldn't come as a surprise.

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.
