Pause Ponder and Pretty Pitiful

So, y'all liked Bubba-Billy-Bobby. So much y'all left some nice comments about him. Some. Most however were downright mean.

Renal Failure stuck it to him with:

This Adam Sandler remake of "Mice and Men" just isn't doing it for me.


Whitey - hiya Whitey - hissed at him:

The creator of the "I'm With Stupid" T-shirt celebrates his first million.


I'm kinda disappointed Whitey didn't make any obscure historical references this week. Nicky (who Works For Cheese) had an obscure historical reference - Bubba-Billy-Bobby - with her creation:

And with a single gesture, Biff disproves Darwin's Theory of Evolution.


But our meanest comment was hurled by that Finnish femme fatale Ziva from Ziva's Inferno who gave us:

For the life of him Johnny couldn't understand why drinking beer always gave him a toothache.


Way to go Ziva. You be hangin' with dufus this week. W00t W00t and all that jazz. Congratulations.

Thanks to everyone for takin' a shot at Bubba-Billy-Bobby. Join us next week. Same blog time. Same blog channel.

By the way, did you guys notice what Google did yesterday?


Yeah, they created this great logo in honour of John Lennon's birthday. He would have been 70 today. Cool. And when I discovered this I was listening to my new Lennon Signature Box Set. Instant Karma got me!

Hell yeah! Finally I be hangin' with dufus, it only took me a year to figure out what it takes. (The cheque's in the mail.) Thanks, man. And congrats to the runners up.

Ziva: Happy to see you Finish-ed first Ziva. Well done!
Those are all great! I tried to do one but I just couldn't beat those awesome quips. I kept thinking about Peruvian Pan Flutes for some reason.
I loved the cool John Lennon Google graphic. If it wasn't for Google and their funky headers, I'd probably miss a lot of importance historical dates. - G

Ah! Thanks for splaining the Google logo. I saw it, but didn't get it.

Yes, I'm dense that way. And congrats to the Divine Ziva for her winning caption!

Let's hope she doesn't become a Diva over it. hee hee
nonamedufus said…
GD: Peruvian Pan Flutes" Love it! And yeah that Google graphic was cool.
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Yeah the face is actually a self-potrait. Hard to imagine it was 30 years ago he was killed.

Ziva Diva? Yeah. Try saying that five times fast.

Congrats to Ziva!

And congrats to the honourees - they were all great captions.

Ha! Ziva The Diva! Good one!

nonamedufus said…
00dozo: We should start a movement. Ziva for Diva! Ziva for Diva!
Ziva said…
Ziva for Diva? I like it!
nonamedufus said…
Ziva: Then it's settled. It started with Quirks, but there's been such a groundswell of support it can't be ignored anymore. Ziva's a Diva! (Um, you may have to write another cheque.)
Ziva said…
I'll get right on that cheque. (Um, lemme know before you plan to cash these, will you? Just in case I feel like going on vacation or something.)
nonamedufus said…
Ziva: Oh I wasn't gonna cash them. I was gonna frame them!
Ziva said…
I'm going to have to work on my autograph. A big X isn't very diva at all.
nonamedufus said…
Ziva: I would have thought it would have been a big "Z"! Are you now X, the blogger formerly known as Ziva?
Nicky said…
SHUT UP! My comment got mentioned?! Yay!! I feel like a nominee at the Oscars! I don't even mind losing (especially to Ziva the Diva), it's just such an honour being noticed amongst all those funny lines!
nonamedufus said…
Nicky: We like you. We really, really like you.
K A B L O O E Y said…
First off, congrats to all. All funny, well-deserved. But nomie, you have the box set? Do they take off the Yoko songs? Remember doing that little hop with the needle over every Yoko on Double Fantasy to hear John's songs?
nonamedufus said…
KABLOOEY: Alas, unfortunately no. *Aiiiieeeeee*

Congrats to Ziva!

And congrats to the honourees - they were all great captions.

Ha! Ziva The Diva! Good one!

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.
