_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.

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.
