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.
Skeeter



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



But the sign said Singles Night!
Whitey



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.

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 me...an honorable mention YAY!). *smile*

Yep, 00dozo was solid gold this week.

Yay!! Disqus!! Good job 00

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.

;-)

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.

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 - 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…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
