Pause Ponder and Perfidy

Hey, no one picked up on my Neil Sedaka reference Wednesday. Don't you remember his 1962 #1 hit Breaking Up Is Hard To Do? I guess none of you were born then. Moving quickly along...

Man we had a lot of funny captions submitted this week. This had to be one of the toughest weeks yet for poor old dufus to choose a winner. You guys really brought your "A" game, for sure. Here are our honourable mentions...


A couple discusses all of Obama's great ideas.



Yuri Geller attempts to bend the spoon in Natasha's cup. If successful,
he will then attempt to bend Natasha to his will.

How am I going to tell her I'm dating her mother?



Tom desperately wanted to have sex with Julie.
But he couldn't remember his best lines.



But Linda over at The Good, The Bad, The Worse went in a whole different direction this week with her winning caption:


You caught it off a toilet seat?

Way to go Linda, you be hangin' with the dufus this week. Congratulations. Here's your own dufus badge. Wear it with pride.


Oh, Neil Sedaka may well have been singing about toilet seats...

Congrats to Linda! See, Linda? Punning up isn't hard to do after all!

And congrats to the honourable mentions!

dufus - I do remember both versions of "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" - I prefer the remake (slower) version of it though. I do like the original, but I don't think I've ever felt that upbeat about breaking up with someone.

00dozo: "Punning up isn't hard to doo..." We'll make a punster of you yet double 0. I wasn't really into Neil Sedaka. After all I was 10 in 62. The Beach Boys, the Four Seasons and Dion were kinda neat, though.

Oh that was a good one Linda! Very funny! And congratulations to all the runner-ups too. I think this is one of my favourite PPandP's so far! - G

G: There were so many good captions it was hard to choose just one. And I used one of the simplest pics ever, too.

That Linda. She's a good ole gal. That was a great caption! As well as the honorable mentions!

LOL

Quirks: Yeah, she leaves me a-gog from time to time.
Congrats to the winner - her caption was hilarious! They all were funny though!

Kimber: I've got a great group of followers who each have a great sense of humour.

Hey, somehow I missed this on Wednesday. Well, just darn! I couldn't have beat Linda anyway. That was the funniest caption ever!!! Congrats, Linda.
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna: Yeah she blew the "lid" off this week's contest leaving everyone else a little "flushed".
Boom Boom Larew said…
Yay, Linda! And yes, I DO remember Neil Sedaka! I think I even remember all the words to that song.
nonamedufus said…
Boom Boom: Yeah, me too. And I didn't even particularly like the song.
Oh, I got your Sedaka reference, all right. I just can't stand to think about that song, or any of his songs. Thanks for the honorable mention!

Mike: I know, I feel the same way about the guy...and his songs. But I saw that picture and it was the first thing that came to my mind. Maybe I should have gone with the second.

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…
