Pause Ponder and Pairs of Military Puns


Our captioners came well armed this week. Even though I thought this was the guy they originally hired before Tom Cruise to tell Jack Nicholson that he couldn't handle the truth. But I digress.

laughingmom marched right in with:

Hey! Who stole my bugle?!?

Last week's winner Raymond demonstrated a little rear guard action with:

And then Louie sat on his bayonet.

Perennial runner-up 00dozo lobbed this one in:

Sgt. Stern suddenly discovers he was unsuccessful in squeaking
out a "silent one" during troop inspection.

But it was LOTGK who made me surrender with:

A very rare military photo of comedian Jerry Lewis

You know when I see LOTGK's acronym I always think of that Andy Kaufman character on TAXI - Latka or else I think of the simplest model of predator-prey interactions known as the Lotka-Volterra. Believe me this model's no Victoria Secret. But, hey, that's a story for a whole other time. But, nope, it really stands for Lurking On The Grassy Knoll. Hey, I do my research!

Congratulations LOTGK. You be hangin' with dufus this week. Should we grab a brewski or sumpin'? Way to go, guy.

And again thanks to all for playing. Click on these guys links and see just how funny they can be on their own blogs. Tell 'em dufus sent ya.


Oh, and before I let you go I just wanted to clear up a misconception several of you had in the comments to yesterday's post. Some of you thought that bobble head of Our Green Party leader Elizabeth May bore an uncanny resemblance to America's Republican candidate Sarah Palin. Well, you be the judge.

Elizabeth May - The Anne of Green Gables Candidate

Sarah Palin - The Out Of This World Candidate

Hahaha... "Anne of 'Green' Gables" ... dignified.

It's pretty quiet today on the Northern front, eh dufus??

Congrats LOTGK! I knew your 'name' had something to do with conspiracy theories but like dufus, I generally misread it as 'potato pancake'.

Congrats, too, to the other honourables. Thanks for another mention dufus.

And I don't think Elizabeth May looks anything like Palin - JMHO. She does, however, remind me of "Annie" from the movie Misery.

Ah! She's a cross between Kathy Bates and Sarah Palin!

Now I have NO clue what she stands for Noname? But based on this ONE observation alone...

Don't VOTE for her.

hee hee hee

And congrats to LOTGA! (hee hee) I know, I know it's LOTGK. I just kinda prefer the LOTGA. Can't it be Laughing On The Grassy AREA? Or Anus?

Jaffer: I thought she really looked like A of GG grown up, sorta.
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: Yeah, latkes, that was the other one. And now that you mention it May does look like Cathy Bates. If elected she'd probably give us nothing but misery. hahahaha

Quirks: She's the environmental candidate; head of the Green Party. And she already is standing. (She's quite short.)

I must confess, I was going with Latka but I never knew how to spell his name. Thanks for clearing that up. This now gives a whole new meaning to my blog.

But, the silver lining, maybe now the conspiracy that Andy Kauffman is still alive can now be put to rest.

*Ps: I knew the blackmail photo I sent you would get me a win this week.

LOTGK: Photo, what photo?

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…
