Pause Ponder and Police

There were some excellent captions this week and that's...the naked truth! You guys are on a streak in terms of bringing the funny week after week. Let's see if we can wrap this up...

At least he kept his socks on.

I can finally scratch off item #83 from my bucket list... 
Tomorrow item #91 "wake up in jail" can also be scratched out!

The officers misunderstood when Jonathan said he was hung like a battering ram.

The man in the black jacket walking behind thinking: 
"I wonder if he's had a Brazilian wax lately, so smooth and tight."

But I kinda got carried away with the caption from newcomer Skeeter over at Dead Dog...

New mascot - FAIL!

Okay Skeeter, way to go guy. You be hangin' with the dufus! Pretty exciting stuff, huh? Here's your badge. Hey these two pictures are kinda similar. least I kept MY clothes on.

Thanks everyone for playing along this week. See you Wednesday for our next Pause Ponder and Pun.

Oh, hey, guys. Know who this is?

It's 00dozo from When I Reach and she's the big winner and newest member of the Bloggerhood Of The Traveling Book. She answered our skill testing question yesterday about what Steig Larsson's The Girl... trilogy was called. The answer: The Millenium Series. Congrats, dozo. I'll drop The Girl Who Played With Fire in the mail at the beginning of the week. You're gonna love it.

So many winners this week! I guess my work here is done.

Tee hee, I'm not so sure it's a fail, though. The new mascot certainly seems to have attracted a fair amount of attention...

Also, completely and utterly unrelated, I am fascinated by the "Live Traffic Feed" in your sidebar. I'm only one of the two Oslo's. That means that 1/250,000th of Oslo's population has paid this blog a visit within the last two hours. Awesome!

Cruella: Wow! Good to know I've made a big impression in Oslo!

Talk about an epic FAIL that's a winner! Way to go, Skeeter!

Congrats to OOdozo, too, on becoming a member of the Bloggerhood!

Boom Boom: 00dozo worked hard to join our little club. Good on her. And didn't Skeeter come up with a great caption!
00dozo said…
Congrats to Skeeter! Great caption!

And, congrats to all the honourables - they were all funny.

Thanks dufus for the shout out - I'll be keeping an eye out for the book.

Thank you Boom Boom for the club welcome, too.

00dozo: You did alright this week. Maybe you should buy a lottery ticket while you're still hot!
00dozo said…
dufus: Wish I could, but there are no lotteries down here.
Quirkyloon said…
Yay and congratumations to oodozo! And I'm honored to have had an honorable mention. But you know what? On fourth hand, I just realized the odd resemblance between YOUR avatar and the police pic.


There something you want to confess Nomesters?

I'm thinking yoo-doo! hee hee
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: Are you kidding? Isn't it a game of chance just to dodge the hurricanes down there?
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Ah, you caught me. I outgrew my clothes unfortunately. Although my sox still fit me.
Miss Nikki said…
Yay I made the honorable mention list (at least I did SOMETHING honorable this week). Thanks for the shout out. Looking forward to next week's edition.
nonamedufus said…
Nikki. Oh, um, what else did you do this week?
Gotta wonder what's going through the guy's mind at that very moment.

Great captions!

Chris: He may well be wondering why he didn't wear one of those socks on something else!

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!"

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 …
