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".
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.

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.
