Pause Ponder and Perverted Pets

Our little friend in the picture looks like she's enjoying her noodles. They must taste good. Speaking of good taste, here's this week's winning captions, beginning with our honourable mentions.

Introducing the Sham Face Wow!
Worried about noodle splashes? Worry no more
with a Sham Face Wow! Order now and you'll get
two for the price of ONE! Call now.
Operators are waiting.

The unfortunate result of forgetting to remove your
bubble-gum before eating your noodles.

Whoopie cushions make lousy fashion accessories.

But dufus doesn't want captions with good taste! No. Our winner this week is the absolutely tasteless Skeeter from Dead Dog with:

She was sooooo ugly, her parents put that fake anus on her face
to get the dog to like her.

Way to go Skeeter. You be hangin' with the dufus. Congratulations, dude!

See you guys next week. Oh, and hey, if you're literate you may want to catch my post from earlier in the week The Bloggerhood Of The Traveling Book. I think apart from the 4 literate comments I got the rest of the folks that dropped by Thursday must have been illiterate. Dunno. Just sayin'. Not too late to leave a comment, though. Cheers.

Hey! That's TWO honorable mentions! I think that's ALMOST as good as "hangin' with ye."

Yee haw!

And congrats to Skeeter for his/her (?) disgusting and winning caption.

Congrats to skeeter! I really liked his other one too!

Congrats, as well, to the runners up. Thanks for another honourable metion, but I think BonyMike's was pretty good too (albeit a bit long winded).

Quirks: Well it beats a dishonourable mention, doesn't it?
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: Mike had a good one, yep, but my post had been put to bed before he submitted it. Around here you have to submit early submit often!

DYING at Skeeter's winning caption!

Kelly: It doesn't say much for dogs, but I still thought it was pretty funny.
Sandra said…
Ok Skeeter is my hero. Nothing says authenticity like that!
nonamedufus said…
Sandra: Oh Skeeter's authentic. We just haven't figured out an authentic what.
Skeeter's was good and definitely in the top five, but in all honesty, I like Quirky's the best. No offense. Humor is subjective, I know.

Mike: Gee, maybe I should open this up to a vote. I could call it "So You Think You Can Caption?"

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.

Who spoke to his enemies in disguise
