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.

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"

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

Is that your, 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 - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

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…
