Pause Ponder and Prospective Goddesses

Obviously these girls didn't have the grandmother I once had. I recall sticking my tongue out at her when I was about 5 years old and she grabbed a knife from the kitchen drawer and threatened to cut it off. That was many years ago but her feigned over-the-top reaction has stayed with me to this day. Although I've been known to still stick my tongue out from time to time. So what have we got in this week's captions?

Well, Donnie had this one licked with:

Manners and maturity. It's what being a teen is all about.

00dozo took a page from my favourite movie A Christmas Story with:

This is what happens when you lick too many poles in the winter.

Cruella Collett stuck her tongue firmly in her cheek and gave us:

5 seconds later the Kardashians finally came up with a way of becoming famous.

But Boom Boom puckered up and blew a raspberry to Charlie Sheen's recent antics with:

Prospective goddesses vie for a job at Sober Valley Lodge.

Ha, ha...good one Boom Boom. You win again, girl. You be hangin' with dufus this week. Congratulations.

Thanks to all for playing along and we'll see you back here again Wednesday for our next Pause Ponder and Pun.

Phillipia: She's on a tear. She's won several times recently.
So, do you think this will win me any points when I apply to be a goddess?

Congrats Boom Boom!! I think we should declare March Charlie Sheen month!

Thanks for the mention and congrats to Donnie and Cruella ... Hmmm, "Donnie and Cruella" - has a nice ring to it, eh?

Boom Boom: Congrats, Boom. You've got my vote!
nonamedufus said…
00dozo:Oh, please. Wasn't February enough?
00dozo said…
Well, most of what I read about him (and mostly through the blogs) was in March. God forbid I would associate him with the month of my birth!
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: I don't think we should even give him a day.

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.
