Pause Ponder and Perturbed

Woah, guys. Your responses were over the top this week both in quantity and quality. A lot of hilarious comments, believe me. We even had one comment - an anonymous one - that indicated the photo wasn't funny and should be taken down. This person was quite perturbed. Now there's validation for ya. PPP really is off the wall and no topic is taboo around here!

We're going to expand our honourable mentions this week because there were so many good ones. Now, where should we start?

At this year's science fair, young Eric introduced man's newest travelling companion, Shrinkie, the first portable lap doll. "It's Shrinkie, it's Shrinkie, man's first portable doll. It's Shrinkie, it's Shrinkie the most wonderful doll of them all."

And Tom was never wing-man for Tiger Woods again!

Amazingly, her face distracts you from her ridiculously huge left hand.

Moooooog finally convinces his sister to go to the prom with him.

Well there goes the old adage about 'opposites attract'.

Who's Sorry Now!
A new reality show featuring survivors of a Utah cult

Romance blooms at the Ozark Mountain Banjo Festival

But the biggest winner, or loser depending on your point of view, had to be:

You think you've got a small head, you should see the one in my pants.

Ha, ha, good one. Way to go Madge. You were head and shoulders above the rest. Heh, heh. Congrats, girl. You be hangin' with the dufus this week. Wanna go see a movie or sumpin'? I think there's a revival of Deliverance down at the Mayfair this weekend.

And we've got a Golden Clothespin recipient this week. That's where we award the best comment ABOUT a comment. In response to our anonymous admirer telling us we shouldn't make fun of someone with a disease or deformity, Chris@Knucklehead responded:

Who the hell are you calling deformed? You insensitive ASSHOLE!

Which all goes to show that deformity is in the eye of the beholder. Or something like that.

And thanks to all for your weird and whacky comments. They were up (or down, and you know who you are) to your usual standards and didn't disappoint. Look forward to seeing you all back here next week.

Congrats to the honourables! And, congrats to Chris for the Golden Clothespin! Nice comeback. (I'd better remember not to piss in his cornflakes.)

And thanks, dufus, for another metion.
Madge said…
YAY!!! I Win! I Win!! Thanks everybody.

I would love to see Deliverance on the big screen Dufus! I'll even get on my hands and knees and squeel like a pig, just because it's fun.

00dozo: Feel free to be cliche-ish. This could become a comment fad here. Only time will tell.
nonamedufus said…
Madge: Well, I'd pay money to see that.

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.
