Pause Ponder and Pogos


You guys really know how to lay on the mustard. We had some great captions this week.

I really liked Jeremy from We Took The Bait's comment:

Margaret Cho's boyfriend, Frank, prepares to
"wow" the audience with
his impersonation of Mikhail Gorbachev.


Donnie from Beyond Left Field lived up to his blog title with:

Lady, you've got the ketchup right, but your way off with the mustard!


And Frank at I Don't Give a Damn did manage to give:

Janice, for one, welcomes our new giant-hotdog overlords.


But it was 00dozo at When I Reach who went for the gold with:

Originally, Kim had doubts about internet
dating services but exclaimed,
"Unlike the ketchup,
he really knows where to put the mustard!"

Hot dog, 00dozo, you're this week's big wiener. You be hangin' with the the dufus. Woo-hoo! Congratulations.

Hear! Hear! Thanks for the mention. I knew it had to be something sexually centered. It was only appropriate.

Donnie: Hey, sex sells...unless you're Charlie Sheen, then you're looking someone who sells sex.

Everyday Goddess: Oh, we've always got great captions from folks. You should stop by next week and join in.
Thanks for the mention, Dufus!

Frank's impersonation of Gorbachev would have been dead on if he'd replaced the mustard bottle with a fifth of vodka.

Congrats to 00dozo and the hono(u)rable mentions!

Jeremy: Well done guy. Excellent point about Gorbachev.
00dozo said…
Thanks, dufus!! To be honest, I thought it was too wordy and I really liked Jeremy's too.

Thanks everyone, and congrats to the honourables!

00dozo: Your caption was the one with all the garnish. Nice going.

Congrats to OOdozo! And a big burp to all the honorable mentions!

Why is it when I see the moniker 00dozo I always think of that Styx song:

Domo Domo Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto!

hee hee?
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Well now I don't feel so bad. I guess it's safe to admit I always think of:

Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?
Ziva said…

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.
