Pause Ponder and Planes

We had some excellent captions this week. First up, our honourable mentions...


"Trust us, Joe. We just put a fresh coat of invisible paint on it."



Neil Armstrong rethinks his famous quote, "That's one giant step for man..."



STEP ON THE YELLOW LINE
FAA's new test for pilots flying while under the influence.
Raymond

And our winner is...



Joe, going on his first date with Wonder Woman, is a little leery about letting her drive.

Congrats to ba-hutch! And of course the honorable mentions deserve a kudos or two.

They're mighty tasty with whip cream.

Ha!

I was having one HUGE brain fart when I saw that pic. Didn't even try. But I knew others would come up successful and shazam! They did!

Yay punsters!

Quirka: Brain fart, eh? Thats funny cause just after breakfast today I had a HUGE bran fart. hahahaha

Thanks, you know I love hanging with the dufus...I might have to pass on the Easter egg hunt though, since you are either a) using invisible eggs or b) eating them for breakfast.

Congrats ba_hutch!

And congrats to the honourables!

@Quirks: Somehow I'm thankful for not getting an honourable this week.

ba_hutch: You da man. At least I think you're a man. With a name like that it's hard to tell. But congratulations dude. That was a great caption.
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: You've really been on a hot streak lately. I almost renamed this contest "Obstruct Over think and 00dozo"
00dozo said…
Oooh! A triple 0! Is that better than a double 0? It's either that or I'm just having a tri-polar week.
;-)

I also thought ba_hutch's entry was great! But I agree, the dude (or dudette?) needs to get a ... profile.

00dozo: Speaking of tri-polar ba_hutch is, duh, winning!

Congrats B A Hutch! No matter what the rest of the world says or thinks, know that your daddy is proud of you son! Anyone who dates Wonder Woman should let her drive. Especially if it is her own invisible vehicle.
nonamedufus said…
Secondary Roads: Yeah I think she's the only one that knows where to insert the key. (And that's not a euphemism.)

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.
