Pause Ponder and Putz

This guy goes to the head of the class for being such an idiot. You guys go to the head of the class for being so funny.

Behind the scenes where all the King's horses
and all the King's men try to fix that fat shit,
Humpty Dumpty.

Following this unfortunate incident, the game of 'Musical Chairs' has been
banned from all public schools.

The day Matt decided that lion taming was not a viable career choice.

After being caught by surprise, Bobby realizes his chair sniffing days are over.

Our winner this week is that comical character from Colorado, MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings...

Paramedic 1: "It'd be easier to cut his head off."
Paramedic 2: "Yup. I don't think he needs it, either."

Way to go Mike. That one had me falling off my chair *rolls eyes*. Anyway, you've joined that prestigious group of people we obviously let pretty much anyone join.

You now be hangin' with dufus, Mike. Congratulations.

And congratulations to all our commenters this week.

And, hey, click on the links of our winners this week. They're pretty funny people.

I went to school with a boy who got his head stuck in his desk when we were in 5th grade. It was epic...and he never lived it down:)

Oh that Mike! He such a word mongerer! And a good one at that. I can only that someday I will grow up to be as great of a mongerer as he!


Congrats to Mike and the honorable mentions (even Moooog35).

Quirks: Word mongerer? Hey, if anybody's gonna do any pimpin' on my blog it should be me!
I was so sure I wouldn't win, I forgot to check to see if I did until tonight. Not that I only think about myself, mind you, but I pretty much do. Anyway, I'm extremely honored to have won this contest, especially since I'm not that good with captions and the like. Thank you, NoName.
Mongerer? Isn't that the dude with the horses who conquered the known world back in the year 900 or something?

Mike Yeah, he was a real dog.
My schedule's been really shitty lately. Life, too.

Mike: Kinda like the story about the guy sitting on the curb, head in hands, very, very said. Out of nowhere a fairy appears to him and says "Cheer up, things could be worse." So he cheered up and sure enough things got worse.

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.
