Pause Ponder and Pairs of Military Puns



TEN-HUT!

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
HEY LADY!!!


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?

Ha!

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.)
LOTGK said…
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?

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.

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 …
