Pause Ponder and Peas


This has been quite a week for nonamedufus. If I Had Kim Kardashian's Ass ranked as the most viewed post here last week with over 600 page views, pulling ahead of my readers' all-time favourite No Sex Please We're Japanese and the ever-popular Chesticles. It's good to know people prefer Kim Kardashian's ass to that of Richard Simmons, although I have to say I'm a chesticle man myself. Kim's ass also ranked #1 over at PostZoom this week. Who would have guessed.

I started a poll feature last week, up there in the right hand corner. In our first survey, I learned that more readers liked peas than disliked them. Yuck. Losers.

And, finally, we had a record number of people participate in Pause Ponder and Pun this week. And, again, we had so many great captions it was hard to come up with our winner. Our honourable mentions, more than usual, give you some idea of how good all our submissions were...


Homeland Security - keeping you safe for the Holidays



Merry Christmas from the Cheneys



This week on "Sarah Palin's Alaska..."



Sarah Palin strikes again, "I betcha you didn't know that not only is Russia in my
backyard, but I see Santa occasionally too."



No Virginia, there IS no freakin' Santa Claus

But my favourite this week combined his penchant for puns with our pea poll. His caption shows he knows a little something about me. I guess that's only natural seeing how Whitey's my brother...

"You know I got no issue with good will to men, but when he started talking
about spreading peas on Earth..."

Hahahahaha. Yep, that's my brother alright. He also submitted:

"This one's for Grandma!"

which had me snorting my Christmas Corona outta my left nostril. God-bless you Whitey...and the Irish Rovers.

Way to go Whitey, you be hangin with brother dufus this week!



And thanks to everyone for playing along this week. And if our picture's any indication it won't matter if you've been naughty or nice this year! God bless us everyone. Merry Christmas. everybody.

"...peas on Earth..." - Perfect! Especially since peas are not allowed in my house - EVER. Sorry. Very bad childhood experience with those evil green mushy things.

Merry Christmas, NND!

I have a feeling that this award is going to be revoked for insider trading. But thanks anyway, Doof.

And, no, this doesn't count as a Christmas present.

Deb: I wrote a whole post about a bad childhood incident with peas last week called Turning the Tables On Vegetables. I hate peas. Merry Christmas, Deb.

IWBY: Up her nose? Now, or when she was a kid? Merry Christmas IWBY.

Whitey: Damn. So I was pushing my luck at your birthday, then?

Congrats to Whitey! Merry Christmas! Whitey: If you get any more of these badges, you're going to have to get a blog in order to display them all (damn nepotism).
;-)

Congrats and Merry Christmas to all of the honourable mentions!

(P.S. I voted in favour of peas, but I think you already knew that, dufus.)

Yee haw!

Another honorable mention! I feel so honored!

And whoa to Whitey! He's a permanent dufushanger! Congrats, congrats!

Congrats to Whitey. Great caption, even though I love peas.
nonamedufus said…
00dozo:Badges? He don't need no stinkin' badges!
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: You must hold the record for HMs, eh? Merry Christmas and here's to your winning form in the new year.
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna:Well, we won't hold that against you. Hey! Did you vote more than once???
I take it Whitey doesn't like peas either! Well done, Whitey!
nonamedufus said…
Boom Boom: Oh, he likes peas. But he also knows how much I hate them.
Bluezy said…
I really really liked the On Sarah Palin's Alaska one. If you have seen images of her show I swear that she has the same outfit!
nonamedufus said…
Bluezy: I liked it too, though the show's not something I'd go looking for. That'd be an hour from my life I just couldn't get back.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
