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.

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.
