Pause Ponder and "Pardon Me?"

Our commenters showed their ear for a good joke this week. Eerie, don't you think? (I wonder if any of them live near Lake Erie?) Okay, okay. Enough with the ear jokes from me. But from you? Well let's see who's hangin' with dufus this week.

Well Everyday Goddess hasn't just been listening but has actually been reading my posts this week:

"You see, it's very simple. When you wear these specially designed hearing cups, you tune into the frequency emitted by the tiny, red ants and you will hear the secrets of the universe revealed. I am currently annotating all that I have learned from hours and hours of listening to their wise leader, Antera. Coincidentally, she told me that all od the songs of Johnny Cash have hidden meanings."




Uh-huh, and what has your therapist had to say about this? Meanwhile, our blogless buddy ba_hutch apparently had an ear worm with:

I've always thought that Harry Connick Jr. had a great ear for music...now I know why.




00dozo gave us a little history on eavesdropping with her entry:

The CIA's precursor to the ear bud.




But my ears pricked up with Moooooog's comment, who really returned to form this week with:


Obama's new health insurance plan also pays for hearing aids.



Okay, Moooooog, welcome back to the winner's cricle. You be hangin' with the dufus this week. Wah-hoo. Way to go! And thanks to all for playing these captions just keep getting better and better. See you all next Wednesday.

Oh, and drop by these people's blogs by clicking on the links. These guys work hard for the funny.

Congratulations, Moooooog! It's good to know that I can now afford hearing aids.

E.G.: People had their thinking caps on this week. And their ear caps, too, evidently.

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.
