Pause Ponder and Pamper-Clad Pugilists


Wow, I'm impressed. Who knew it only took a couple of bruised and battered babies to bring out the best in people! Ahem, maybe I should rephrase that.

This was a banner week for PPP both in the quantity and quality of captions. You folks floated like a butterfly and punned like Ali.

For instance Boom Boom, who knows a little bit about my family, threw a left hook with:

Whitey vs. Killer?
Whitey! Winning!



Quirkyloon weighed in with:

Charlie and Emilio show off their winning ways.



Chris@Knucklehead got ready to rumble with:

Llllllllet's get ready to ... WAAAAAAH!!!!



00dozo threw this jab:

After enticing Curly to punch himself bare fisted in the eye, Moe has an epiphany for a future vaudeville routine.



But I thought Jamie scored a knock-out with:

Nobody, and I mean NOBODY touches my sippy cup!!

Who-hoo Jamie. You be hangin' with the dufus this week. Way to go, guy. Congratulations. Feel free to grab that dufus pic up there to display on your blog, man.

And to everyone else, thanks for playing along. Now click on the links and visit each other. Keep your hands up. Don't let down your guard. But feel free to leave a little jab here and there.

Now go back to your corners and come out commenting!

My day is complete because I stopped here first this morning and had a sing-a-long with the Mounties.

Congrats to the winner!

Have a great day, Dufus.

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.
