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.

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

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!

00dozo: I don't think we should even give him a day.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

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.

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 …
