Pause Ponder and Pythons

This was one heck of a picture this week wasn't it?

I mean, look at this guy carefully.

What an asp!

Speaking of which, we had a lot of excellent submissions from you guys this week. For my part, I thought this guy lost something in the translation and thought the saying was "the early nerd gets the germ-an snake". But, hey, good thing I wasn't playing. Here's some of the folks who slithered on by this week.

Snakes on the Brain

I told you if you sneezed too hard your brains would fall out.

It's snot! What you think it is?

Now I was torn between the next two to actually determine a winner so guess what? We have a double winner - both of whom are quite funny. And when you see them one after the other you'll see how I just couldn't separate them.

It took one hell of a worm to catch Jeremy but, yes, he took the bait.
Whitey (from *spits* Toronto)


When Samuel L. Jackson declined a role in "Snakes on a Plane 2" the guy who played Mr Miyagi was happy to accept the part.

(I love Whitey's caption but have no idea
what it might be referencing.)

Way to go guys. You be hangin' with the dufus. Well, actually, without getting all technical about it, Whitey and I hung out last weekend, with Sir Drinksalot, celebrating Canada Day with a couple of brewskies.

So Jeremy, looks like it's you and me guy. What do you want to do? We could check out the ophidians at the pet store. Wadda ya say?

Thanks to all for playing this week. See ya Wednesday for the next edition of Pause Ponder and Pun.

(Dang, it's a bloody ghost town around the bloggerhood today.)

Congrats, Whitey and Jeremy! You both waxed on and waxed off with those captions.


And congrats to the honourables!

Thanks for another mention, dufus. (Hey, did you ever see that guy - a 'visual comic' - who would eat spaghetti and sneeze a noodle out of his nose and pull it back and forth? Gah! It put me off of my capellini for a month.)

Congrats Whitey and Jeremy! Great captions. AND thanks for the mention nonamedufus.

Have a great week!!

It is like a ghost town today, isn't it? No, I hafta say I never saw that guy but I'll see if I can Google or You Tube it.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, geez, me too.
nonamedufus said…
No problem, Cheryl. Thanks for playing!

I tried to find the guy I saw but got a whole bunch of other idjits that believe this to be a favourite pastime. Well, I guess it's better (and safer) than 'blue angels' (and, paleeese, you must know what those are).
nonamedufus said…
The only blue angels I found on you tube were the guys that do loop the loops in airplanes. I don't think that's what you had in mind.

Google "pyro flatulence" but don't try it at home - hell, don't try it at all!

Ok, this guy has real talent.

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.
