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.

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!

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
