Pause Ponder and Pretty, Oh So Pretty



Oh we had a slew of great captions this week! Far too many to include here but let's see if I can share with you a random sampling. They were all so great I'm running a few more honourable mentions than I normally do.

Billy Bob Thornton hoping to run into Brangelina.



Going shopping to Wal-Mart.
Mrs. Dufus (hey, I know her!)



Today, the Shepherds of Good Hope launched their new Shabby Dick collection.
Raymond



It's amazing how much Natalie Portman had to change her appearance for "Black Swan"



It's laundry day for Gene Simmons.



I woke up this morning singing:
"I feel pretty, oh so pretty
I feel pretty and witty and gay
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me today"
Cheryl


But there was something about this pic that really stood out for our winner, Leeuna...

Is that your camel-toe...er, hoof, or are you just happy to see me?


Heh, heh, congratulations Leeuna! You be hangin' with dufus this week. We should get dressed up and go somewhere. I think this guy might be able to lend us his matching set of Dollar Store Luggage.

And thanks to everyone for playing along. Now visit each others' links, leave a comment or two and we'll see you back here next week.

By the way, at Madge's insistent badgering I switched my comments to Disqus this week. I was quite cynical - to the point that Madge told me "You're soaking in it". The transition wasn't as smooth as I had hoped but it's up and working now. I hope you guys find it an improvement 'cause you know, to quote Brian Adams: everything I do, I do it for you.

Yay for Leeuna! Congrats Girl!

And thanks for the honorable mention!

As for disqus...I don't get it. I mean I don't get what is "better" but I'm just glad I can post a comment at YER blog!

Congrats, Leeuna! Exceptionally pun-yant.

And congrats to the honourables!

@Quirks: That really does look like Billy Bob, doesn't it?

;-)
Madge said…
Yay Leeuna, great job I laughed relly hard when I saw your comment!
As for disqus... Thank you dufus! It wasn't disqus that fobbed your page, it was blogger.

Hey, good to see you finally had a brain fart and came up with a caption Quirks! And I'm glad you got though the new comment function too!
nonamedufus said…
I had to include her comment 'cause she's the only one who picked up on that. Funny!
nonamedufus said…
Madge, you over did it this week with all your great captions. Wow! Did you like me little pun at your expense today?
Madge said…
I didn't know you had that commercial in Canada. Shoot, I'm surprized you even have the internets. :)~
Madge said…
I just like it because you don't have to @, at people, if you have something to say to them, you can just say it, like I'm saying it to you right now.
Cheryl said…
Congrats to Leeuna. Very funny.

Thanks, Dufus, for the honorable mention.
nonamedufus said…
Ah but you provided the inspiration for our post this week so well done. Cheryl I tried to track you down so I could link yo your blog but I was unsuccessful. Sorry.
nonamedufus said…
And we have TV, too. We're all looking forward to the day when it comes in colour!
nonamedufus said…
I get the impression a little @ wouldn't stop you, Madge.
Cherylper said…
That's ok, nonamedufus. I registered to Disqus to make my comments a little easier on the sites that use it. That might make the link a bit easier. Had to come up with a different user name as Cheryl was taken.
Leeuna said…
Oh my gosh! Mrs. Dufus should have won this. That Wal-Mart line was hilarious. And yes, let's all get dressed up in our "shopping finery" and go out on the town this week.

Congratulations Leeuna!
nonamedufus said…
I'm still trying to figure out why some Disqus commenters links don't show up while others do.
nonamedufus said…
Oh don't mention the honourable mention.
nonamedufus said…
She's thrilled you said so. But your line just got to me.
nonamedufus said…
That was one funny caption! Camel hoof, indeed.

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.
