Pause Ponder and Poke Fun At Asian People

We had quite a discussion in the comments this week, prompted by Madge, who wrote a very funny, yet what might be considered by some bordering on culturally insensitive post featuring Asian folks. Oh, well. Screw 'em if they can't take a joke, eh Madge?

Speaking of Madge, if we were to base our winner on sheer volume both Madge and Cheryl P. would have both won this week, hands down. Way to contribute ladies!

As ever, we had many great captions, making it difficult to narrow our submissions down. But I think you'll like what we've come up with.

Personally, I thought this guy was just let go from a computer firm in China because he totally blew it when he was asked for his IP address. No, eh?

So let's see who else flung dung, er, who said what...

Jin does nothing to help the Asian stereotype of being called a 'yellow man'.

After being challenged by local thugs, Wing runs away humiliated for misinterpreting what was meany by a "pissing contest".

This is the exact opposite of a whiz kid, although he did get the whiz part right.

Hey, is that P. Did-he?
Cheryl P.

Our winner this week, I think, was trying to suck up to me. And she totally succeeded with...

Pause, ponder and pee.

Ha, ha Paula, that was very good. The definitive response, I think. I loved it. That really was the ideal pun. So you be hangin' with the dufus this week. Watchya wanna do? We better not drink too much 'cause ya know we may have to pause ponder and pee. Ha, ha, ha.

Oh, and I should point out. None of us have anything against Asian people. Some of our best friends are Asian people. Madge just thinks we should be fair and democratic and insult everyone! Just kidding, Madge.

See everyone next week.

Sucking up is what I do best! Henry and I will be right over to do some hangin'... as soon as we pause, ponder and pee. (Knowing Henry, there will probably be some poop thrown in for extra measure!)

No problem/ You'll just have to pause ponder and poop along the way. Congratulations Boom Boom. Well done.
Cheryl P. said…
Congrats, Boom Boom. That was the perfect pun. Genius!!! Have fun pausing, pondering, peeing and pooping. Good times with the dufus.

See ya next week in the comments.

We'll be good. After all, I don't think Boom Boom or I want to pause ponder and puke.

Congrats, Boom Boom!! Sucking up is always a good option. Heh, heh.

And, congrats to all the honourables!

Thanks for another mention, dufus! I guess "Manneken Pis" was a bit obscure.

Oh, and I give you an honourable mention (read "groan") for your remark about the "IP address"!!

nonamedufus said…
It was obscure. You made me google it. Once I had the context your remark was, indeed, quite funny. But so was the "pissing contest" line. I thought IP address was a natural. Thanks.

Congrats to Boom Boom. Boom! She did it again! heh heh
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, she did it again. But we'll just keep that between us. Oh, she won again. Yeah, right.
Jayne said…
Congrats, Boom Boom... That's a good one!

Boom Boom; what a week you're having! And the guy on the right could certainly take some "right place, right time" peeing lessons from Henry.
And good for you for being funny with this week's photo. I just couldn't find a way that didn't make me feel crappy about myself.
nonamedufus said…
I think with all her dog training Boom Boom was a shoe in this week. She knows all about urine spots.
Madge said…
Good job Paula!!
Thanks for the mention Duf, any mention even if it's not honorable is good enough for me.
nonamedufus said…
Well, you wrote a pretty hilarious post that carried over into this week's comments. It ras velly, velly funny. It learry made me raff.

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.
