Pause Ponder, Silly Putty, Bubble Gum, Inflatables and Fat

Well, you folks were mighty creative with this week's pic. You took captioning around here to a whole new level. I won't say in exactly which direction... But it was new and different.

For example laughingmom had me chuckling with:

If I get enough Silly Putty, I can make me a prom date, he said quite craftily.

Moooooog proved himself up to par with:

Jack was disheartened when he realized that, after climbing the beanstalk, the Giant's treasure was really just his collection of used bubble gum.

And Boom Boom had me snorting with:

Unfortunately, the directions for Stephen's Super-Inflate-a-Date were not included.

But it was HumorSmith who made me guffaw this week with:

Next week, Grissom makes a gruesome discovery in the freezer on CSI: Fat Farm.

Way to go H.S. You be hangin' with dufus this week. Good on ya. Congratulations! You win that, um, er, beautiful dufus badge up there. Neat, eh?

And hey, click on these links. If you think these folks are funny here, you should see them on their own blogs. Do it.

laughingmom: Hey, you were mention worthy.

Quirks: I'm constantly amazed how people come up with great captions to some of these weird pics. I don't know how they do it.

Way to go Kelly. I knew you had it in you. I was stumped on this one. Boy John, you sure ain't makin' it easy on us slow thinkers.
nonamedufus said…
Donnie: You're selling yourself short...I think.
Boom Boom Larew said…
Great one! Now all we need to know is... what night is CSI: Fat Farm on?
brookeamanda said…
I would totally watch that show! By the way, what WAS that really a pic of???
nonamedufus said…
Boom Boom: I think it's on right after Biggest Loser.
nonamedufus said…
brookeamanda: I have no friggin' idea. But it looks pretty gross whatever it is. Maybe it's the stuff collected by the end of the day at the liposuction clinic?
CSI: Fat Farm. Outstanding.

Sorry I missed this contest, but my far-too-late entry would be:

Johnny learns a valuable lesson: SPAM is not an art supply.

Chris: SPAM, yeah! A SPAM table centre-piece. Cool.
K A B L O O E Y said…
HA! Great job, captioners. Man, I missed this one entirely, but that is a picture of one overly happy dude.

KABLOOEY: He's happy but in a seemingly creepy kind of way.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
