Pause Ponder and the Human Pretzel

This week's pic showed how really twisted some of you guys are. We had a lot of good captions and many birthday and blogaversary wishes, too. Thanks guys. Okay let's see if we can unravel things. We'll start with some honourable mentions...

Leroy finally figured out where that smell was coming from.

A possible side-effect resulting from the new and improved KY products?

I'm gonna hafta bow out of this one; the competition is just too twisted.

And just like that, Rodney invented the highway off-ramp.

Quirks: Yeah Moooooog is, duh, winning. There was a time this pic might have inspired the following: "Attention, in the event of a nuclear attack bend over, stick your head between your legs, and kiss your ass good-bye".

Congrats Moooooog!

And congrats to the other honourees!

Thanks for another mention, dufus!

Ha! Your comment about the nuclear attack brings up the instructions for a crash landing in a plane, except they leave out the kissing part. I guess that is implied.

(Dang it's quiet around these parts these days ... almost too quiet ... *phrrrsst*. Ooops, that might explain it.)

00dozo: You said/did *phrrsst*! hahaha Better living through natural gas.

I meant it to be silent, not deadly. I think I might have gassed half of your followers. Sorry.

00dozo: So that's what cleared the place out. Whew!

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.
