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.

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???
Boom Boom Larew said…
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.

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.

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…
