Pause Ponder and Projectile Babies

Summertime and the living is easy. So's my blog schedule. I've moved up this week's PPP results post to today instead of Saturday. I hope you guys don't mind.

So, like I'm looking at this pic wondering what the heck is going on and thinking "Gee, maybe this guy was hiding under the Tallahassee Bridge". Hey, it coulda happened. Well you guys did a lot better than I did this week. Let's see some of the captions...

A memorial to all those lost in the fateful "Day It Rained Babies"

Aaaaghh! Babies everywhere! Damn my virility!

The new terrorist IEDs: "Sticky Babies"

Jane! Get me off of this crazy thing!

But our winner submitted early and submitted often. I laughed at so many of them I had to include them all.

1. Davids and Goliath
2. "Get off my penis!"
3. "Get on my penis."
4. After attacking the babies he was charged with statue-tory rape.
5. It's raining cats and babies.
6. Hulk smash baby!

I tell you Shawn you had me rofl lmao lol and fimp (farting in my pants). Yeah, all at once! Congratulations my man, you be hangin' with dufus this week. What say we wander on down to Parliament Hill in Ottawa and take a look at the statuary. Or we could just get stoned. (Statuary? Stoned? Get it?) Feel free to lift the pic below, Shawn, and stick it somewhere...on your blog, if you like, to remember this eventful day.

Okay, well, thanks to everyone again this week for playing along. And, hey, you drive-bys should click on folks' links above and go visit these guys. They're pretty funny over on their own blogs too. And, hey, for putting up with me moving this post around this week because it's summertime, here's a video classic to enjoy. Until next time...

Congrats, Shawn! I, too, was ROTFLMAO, LOL (but not FIMP) at your comments.

Congrats to the honourables!

Thanks for the mention, dufus! Hey, I like that "FIMP" thing - I hope it never ends up as "SIMP".

IT is really real. I found it on Google pics. Isn't it weird?
nonamedufus said…
You mean like "sharted" in my pants?

Sharted, shite - hey, whatever floats your boat., erm, I mean pants.


(OMG! I had no idea that statue is in Oslo, Norway when I made my IED comment. I didn't mean to make light of that recent situation - really!)
Shawn said…
I humbly accept the reward. I would like to thank the Academy, the TV show MASH and beer. And most of all thank you Dufus for providing me the source material.
nonamedufus said…
You're joking. I had no idea either. I'll have to look it up. I had no intention of offending anyone either. Well no more than usual.
nonamedufus said…
Hey, get off my penis!
00dozo said…
You mentioned the statuary at Parliament Hill in your post and I thought that's where it was (to mock Harper's 2010 stance on abortion), so I Googled it. Boy, did I feel bad.
nonamedufus said…
Right, I found out where it was located too. But I can't find anything regarding its meaning. It is kinda odd.
quirkyloon said…
Eww. FIMP? Really?


I'm sorry I digress.

Congrats to Shawn and the honorable mentions (yay me!).



Sorry. Can't get away from it. FIMP.

I think it was the brussel sprouts, Quirks.
Shawn said…
Wasn't that a Rolling Stones song? "I said, Hey! You! Get off of my..."

Very good, Shawn. So that's where you came up with it.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
