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I'm kinda disappointed Whitey didn't make any obscure historical references this week. Nicky (who Works For Cheese) had an obscure historical reference - Bubba-Billy-Bobby - with her creation: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

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…

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!"
