Pause Ponder And A Precocious Pipsqueak

When I was little and my mom would catch me making faces she'd always say something like "You keep that up and Jack Frost will freeze that face of yours". I don't think this kid's mother passed on the same sage advice.

But leave it to you guys. You had advice.

laughingmom told her:

Hey, that is what I'll look like after numerous botox treatments and two facelifts.

Chris@Knucklehead picked up on her being at a baseball game and threw this zinger:

How Pittsburgh Pirates fans keep themselves entertained so they don't actually have to watch the game.

But Boom Boom who recently fell down and went boom boom and has been laid up for a while wins our little contest by adapting her caption to her thrill of going back to work:

The children at school respond to the news that Boom Boom will be returning to work next week!

Ha, ha, Boom Boom I love it! You be hangin' with the dufus this week for that one. And good luck with the munchkins next week. Don't let them "trip" you up, eh?

Congrats to Boom boom:)
They'll be doing their best to trip me up, I have no doubt. But once I tell them I'm hangin' with Dufus, they're sure to sit up and take notice. I just hope I make it out alive the first day!

Phillipia: He caption was exquisite.

Boom Boom: Congrats this week. And watch out for those little ankle-biters next week. Of course, if you still had the crutches you could beat them off but I guess that's something the school board probably doesn't encourage.

Congrats to Boom Boom! And congrats to the honourables!

Ha! laughingmom's was really good, too! And Chris', well, that's just cruel - funny, but cruel (just glad it wasn't a Leafs' game).
I love that picture of the kid on the clothes line. Makes you wonder what his family life was like and where he is today hehe.

Oh wait, was it you?
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: I think that kid's face scared a lot of folks away this week. But what we lacked in quantity we more than made up for in quality.

Chelle: Hey, that's me. Or a reasonable facsimile. My "About Dufus" explains it. Good to have you back on the interwebs, Chelle. It's been a while.

Congrats, Boom Boom... Nice to see you're back and in fighting form.
nonamedufus said…
injaynesworld: It's good to see Boom Boom back on her feet again, literally.

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.
