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.)

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.

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…
