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.

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…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
