Pause Ponder and Pun Envy

I should have known that a picture of a bunch of near-naked men would have brought the best out in you guys. I thought this was a very appropriate pic this week given the heat wave many of us have been suffering through. As my dear mother might have said about these guys "They couldn't catch their breath in short pants".

We had a lot of funny captions this week. Let's get to 'em.

They could have saved a lot of money. Instead of all those guys, one black dude could have displayed the whole damn collection.

You spin me right round, baby right round like a record, baby right right round round.

But the sign said Singles Night!

Who needs latex when you have vinyl.

But our winner this week had me choking on my chimichanga! And that's not a euphemism. Although her caption sure got a rise out of me.

"Hey look! We finally got Disqus!"

Way to go Double zero, that was an hilarious caption. All I could think of after reading that was "they're doing it wrong". So you get to hang with dufus this week. You wanna come over and I can show you my 10 inch...record collection?

Thanks to everyone for your great captions and we'll see you all Wednesday for another edition of Pause Ponder and Pun.


congrats to the winner,they were all funny though :)

I think we set a "record" for the number of hilarious comments. Too bad I couldn't share them all here.
Shawn said…
Most of the guys are on long play but the guy in the middle has a 45.
nonamedufus said…
So you're saying his record finishes quicker?
Shawn said…
I am saying, some people like to hold compact discs while others prefer extended play. I on the other hand prefer a boxed set.
nonamedufus said…
You're really in the groove.

I love it! Disqus. I wish I had thought of that one! Hilarious! Congrats to all (and honorable mention YAY!). *smile*

Yep, 00dozo was solid gold this week.

Yay!! Disqus!! Good job 00
nonamedufus said…
She certainly goes in the "album" of great comments.
Shawn said…
All your records are just as good as the other – there’s nothing to get all cassette about. (took me four hours to come up with that one.)
nonamedufus said…
Well I wouldn't want you to make an acetate of yourself.
Those were awesome!!!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, there's actually some pretty bright and funny folks reading my blog. Imagine.
00dozo said…
Thanks, dufus! (Yeah, I know it was kind of a lame segue from one of my posts.) And I'd love to come over and see your big 10 inch ... record collection. Got any Men Without Hats??


Congrats to the honourables, too!
00dozo said…
Thanks, Madge! I honestly thought you would win - your 'latex/vinyl' made me laugh!
nonamedufus said…
I thought that comment was so funny. When you made another comment about hat's off to Devo's comeback I immediately thought of Men Without Hats. But I won't go there.
00dozo said…
Heh, heh ... that's kinda what I was thinking. Great minds (?) Okay, lets not ... go there, I mean.

nonamedufus said…
I say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And we can dance

Great captions! Singles night in particular struck me as funny. Good job to all. CDs and mp3's can't hold a candle to vinyl.
00dozo said…
Hey, we can dance
If you wear pants
Then you'll be a great friend of mine

nonamedufus said…
That's not how it goes. It's funnier though.
nonamedufus said…
The captions are great from the pic on Wednesday but so are the comments on Saturday. We have a lot of fun. You should join us next time.

And you're right. There's nothing quite like vinyl.

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…
