Pause Ponder and a Pin Prick

Ok. We had some very funny comments this week. In recent weeks we've reached the point where participants are making their own little "in" jokes, referring to previous posts here. Let's see if you can follow along.

Hey, this must be what happened just before last week's PPP

The class bully is suddenly outed as the class weenie.

A young Jackie Chan becomes the first recipient of China's new super-soldier serum.

No stranger to hangin' with dufus, our winner this week decided to try her hand at verse and her fourth comment was the charm...

There once was a little boy Puck
Who with a needle was stuck
He yelled at the nurse
And gave her a curse
He said "Ouch, what the F***"

Congrats Cheryl, you be hangin' with dufus this week. Seeing how this long weekend marks both Canada Day and Independence Day maybe we could get together and watch the fireworks develop. Heh, heh, heh.

And congrats to our honourable mentions and my thanks to everyone who played along. See ya all next Wednesday for our next Pause Ponder and Pun.

I be hangin with the dufus and celebrating with explosive contraband. (fireworks are illegal here in Kansas City for private use)

As always, I had fun and enjoyed the other dufus followers' clever lines.

Have a great holiday weekend everyone.

Congrats, Cheryl! Clever limerick!

And congrats to the honourables!

Thanks for another mention, dufus. (Really, I gotta get some new material for these Saturday comments, sans exclamation marks.)

And to everyone, Happy Canada and Independence Days! Stay comfortably numb (but drink responsibly).

These long holiday weekends are murder. My liver is killing me. Check that. I'm killing my liver.

Way to go Cheryl. We'll just have to imagine fireworks I guess.

You know, I totally bought that his name was Puck and didn't even think about the rhyming setup.

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…
