Pause Ponder and Pork on Your Fork


Yay, you remembered! And those that didn't are the losers because they missed their chance to be as happy as a pig in shit. I use that expression, of course, because of this week's pic. A pig among the pooches. I think the little guy's hiding out from Old MacDonald. Yeah, I think he's out of breakfast bacon and is looking for a side of sizzle. This little piggy's gonna have none...of that. So let's see who came up with the best porcine pun, shall we? And away we go...




Lord of The Fleas



In China, dog is the other white meat.



From "Best in Show" to "Best in Sow"



But our winner this week is that punster poser from the COTU (centre of the universe - *spits* Toronto) and my brother...

The grunt of the litter.
Whitey




Everybody?

HI WHITEY!!!

Hey Whitey. You won this little pig in a poke ya big ham. You be hangin' with your brother dufus. Waddaya wanna do this week? We could get together and go out to your favourite breakfast spot where I know they have some delicious pork products. I'm talkin' maybe some Eggs Willowdale, home fries, bacon, sausages and pea meal bacon. You want a cardiac arrest with that? Congrats bro.

And a special tip of the hat to Nicky for being a good sport. She participated in our little contest even though she and I are in the midst of a major diss fest over who's gonna win the Tribal Blogs' Makeover Contest. Stories of anal probes just ain't gonna do it baby. Aliens got nothing over Norma Desmond.

Sorry about that previous paragraph but seeing this was a post about a pig I thought I'd throw in a few links.

Thanks to all for playing and we'll see everyone next week, once you've managed to extricate yourselves from the pig pen and - sniff, sniff - had a chance to clean yourselves up.

Ah, Dufus, you're the best! And I'm pretty sure Norma WAS and alien.

Congrats to Whitey! And what's this? Nomie is FIGHTING?

Never thought I'd see the day.

HA!

Kidding!

Aw, we can still be friends. Are you conceding?
nonamedufus said…
Me, fight? Never. But engaging in a little contestation (ha, ha, get it? A play on words: contest/contestation) now and then isn't unheard of.

Congrats, Whitey!

And congrats to all the "other" honourables (see, dufus, I'm not patting myself on the back this week).

And, of course, thanks for another mention.

;-)

Psst ... I think Nicky's bolstering up your ego and playing upon your vulnerability - you know, so you will concede.

Hey, no problem. Are you staying safe from all those hurricanes. Or are you having a tropical depression? (haha, get it?)
nonamedufus said…
I wouldn't put it past her. She's sneaky like that. You really have to keep an eye on her, don't you.
Nicky said…
Not at all!! I was really saying thank you. I sincerely appreciate your shout out seeing as how we're going to win. I think you're being a very good sport for someone who is going to lose. Badly.

Hey I'm always gracious in victory. Say do your ankles hurt? Cause you're about to experience the agony of da feet, baby.

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.
