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.

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…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

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.
