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.
Donnie said…
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.
nonamedufus said…
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 - 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.

Who spoke to his enemies in disguise
