_ause _onder and _un


I gotta pee, Pat.

Welcome to another results edition of Pause Ponder and Pun - wildly more popular than that age-old TV game show "Wheel of Fortune". About the only thing we have in common with that show's sexy hostess is the fact that all of you Vanna win.

This week's photo was kind of uplifting don't you think. You all rose to the occasion with some pretty great captions. Let's see who floated their way to the top, shall we?


"Honey! The ceiling still still tastes white."
Vaguemax



Forgetting the hardhat, Suzy ignored Krazy Glue's "Don't try this at home" disclaimer



Mary did her part to try to raise the debt ceiling.



She's trying to explain what a dangling participle is.



And now the moment you've all been waiting for. Well, whether or not you've been waiting it's nevertheless time to unveil our winner...



Maybe we should rethink the helium enema idea.

W00T, Jamie! (I think that's what the kids say. What? They don't say that anymore?) Way to go dude. You be hangin' with dufus this week. What say we get hold of a couple of those helium balloons and rent a DVD. I'm sure I can find a copy of "Up". Congratulations guy.

And we've got some new players who won, placed and showed this week, folks. So be sure to click through to their websites and check them out.

Until next time...

Congrats, Jamie! You were really 'on high' with that one.

And congrats to the honourables!

Nice tribute to Jack, dufus! I always liked him - he really had a great sense of humour. He will be missed.

You survived Irene, 00dzzo. Good to see you alive and well. The clip of Layton in the left sidebar of his "best of" from 22 Minutes shows just what a good sport the guy was...and shameless. He'd do almost anything to get his message across. ;-) The outpouring of affection from Canadians across the country has been stunning. I think politics in this country will miss him terribly. One of the good guys.

There'll be more remembrances in the Sunday Funnies tomorrow.

Yes, we 'weathered' the storm fairly well. Our island was spared major structural damages, but there were other islands that got smoked pretty good.

I remember Jack from way back when he was with the Toronto City Council. Even then he was shameless, but in a good way. I don't really think anyone disliked him. Yeah, he was one of the few good guys. Sad that he is gone. I hope his influence will live on.

Good to know you dodged another one.

Layton certainly led his party to dizzying heights in the last election. To bad he won't be around to as Official Opposition leader. Sad.

Helium enema? Hilarious!! Nicely done...
nonamedufus said…
Yeah but remember, what goes up must come down and I'm not so sure I want to be around for that.

I won?? What a gas!
nonamedufus said…
Ah, hahahahaha. Yeah, and you win our grand prize of...absolutely nothing. Congratulations, Jamie!
Jamie said…
The honor alone is worth more than a mere prize...

Oh, you bet! And feel free to take the "hangin' with dufus" icon from my post to use on your blog.

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…
