Pause Ponder and Pyrotechnics in the Bedroom


Hello and welcome to that internationally acclaimed (or at least on billboards in New Jersey) interwebs caption contest Pause Ponder and Pun! That's right. I supply the picture and you supply the puns. And we had plenty of punny players this week, all with their own view of just what the heck might be going on in our picture.

I have to say I am constantly amazed at how you guys' minds work. I long ago learned not to drink anything while I'm reviewing your submissions for fear of blowing said liquid out my nose. This week we hit the mother-load of great captions so I've extended our honourable mentions a bit. Without further ado, let's get to it.



I see that look in your eye, but it's time for tai che



Ohhhhh nooooo! We are not role playing Baez and Anthony again. Nuh-uh, no way Jose.



Hold it right there! I agreed to do the players, but I am certainly not doing the water boy!

There was a time when Bob thought Mary's obsession with Diana Ross was cute. By the sixth night of the honeymoon, he'd changed his mind.

You have to be at least as big as Kelsey Grammer to ride this ride.



Our winner this week pretty much owns this contest. Not a week goes by that he isn't among the honourable mentions and I think he's won our little pun phest more than anyone else. He remains true to form:

After the fart she just did, Jimmy was really in no mood for a high five.


Yay, Moooooog. Way to go guy. You be hangin' with dufus this week. What do ya wanna do? Oh, I know. There's this great restaurant I know that makes a mean three-bean salad. And we could get a side order of their brussel sprouts. A pickled egg or two and some beers - sounds like a rip-roaring time.


Congratulations, too, to our honourable mentions this week and a big thanks to all those who stopped by to play.

And, hey, show some blog love and click on the links to visit these guys' blogs (those that have blogs). They may be funny here but they're absolutely hilarious at home.

I don't know many people that can find humour in the whole Anthony thing. But you sure did. "No way Jose." Loved it!

Good job mooooog and thanks for the honorable Dufus, thought I wouldn't get anything since I verbally kicked you in the shin over at mwj's place ;)

Actually, Dufus, you hang out with a very clever crowd of people. Every one of these are hysterical!

Aw, I don't hold a grudge, Madge. But now it's time for tai che.

I know. They're great aren't they? You should jump in. You're a pretty funny lady - when you and Madge aren't ganging up on me.

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 …

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
