Pause Ponder and The Pepsi Challenge


Who knew a coke-addled blonde babe could inspire so many great captions. But I'm dealing with you guys, so nothing should surprise me. It's too bad we can only limit ourselves to just some of the submissions. But here's a taste...

I've tried snorting coke but the bubbles always get up my nose



I snort Diet Coke because I want to keep my girlish figure.



Purple Pamela used to do speedballs, but they made her stop sticking her head in front of the pitching machine. Then she tried moving on to horse, but wouldn't you know? Another concussion when it kicked her.



Finally, evidence that Coke's competitors tampered with their product before asking the public to take the Pepsi Challenge
Whitey (from *spits* Toronto)



But it was a previous winner and a former colleague of mine who had me snorting (laughing, that is - hey, humour's a natural high!)


Harold Camping's disciple NostrilDamus confirms end of the world!
Raymond


Way to go Ray. You be hangin' with the Dufus this week. I would have thought that after all those years of working together you'd be tired of hangin' out with me but, hey, what the heck.

And congratulations to the rest of you deviants. Whether you were mentioned or not I sure appreciate you playing along.

Click on these folks' links and visit THEIR blogs. And if you'd like to talk to Whitey and Raymond who don't have blogs stay tuned. I'll be passing along their private phone numbers so you can call them collect!

Yes they are, aren't they. I always get a laugh out of them, for sure.

Contrats, Raymond!

And congrats to the honourables!

I had forgot I submitted a comment (frakkin' Blooooger), but I do remember thinking she kinda looks like Courtney Love.

NowI think Courtney love lived by the motto "things go better with coke". Hey, who the hell is Nooly?
00dozo said…
Among other drugs. Heh, heh. Of course, in hindsight, I thought of a better caption about Love and Cobain. Oh well, too late.

You do remember Mad Magazine - they had those "fold-up" back covers? I forget the caption, but it referred to Nostradamus' skills at predictions. When ffolded, the pic showed this monster-type thing picking its runny nose.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I remember the fold-up back cover, just not that one in particular. Some of those were brilliant.
00dozo said…
If I recall, it was the first Mad Mag I ever read. Still, I had no clue as to who Nostadramus was until years later. I dunno if it's still published.

Fun times.

My introduction to Nostradamus was through Al Stewart's excellent song of the same name in 1973. Some of his predictions were freaky.

Congrats on the win, Raymond! Good thing the world didn't end, or you wouldn't have been hanging with the Dufus.
nonamedufus said…
Don't encourage him!

NostrilDamus... great one, Raymond!

That one had me snorting. She doesn't so much see into the future but rather sniffs it out.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
