Pause Ponder and Prime Time


Hey, guess what? A major network called me and wants to put Pause Ponder and Pun on nation-wide prime time TV. Yeah. See they want to add to their already huge collection of reality shows featuring D-listed stars. They want to call it America's Got The Biggest Loser Celebrity Apprentices Punning With the Stars. Yeah, or something like that. Sure. Well, okay. If they're not, they should. That's in my humble opinion mind you.

On to this week's comments:

Yeah, I like that one.

LOL

Ha, ha now that's funny.

Huh?

Oh you wanna see them too?

Well why didn't you say so?

00dozo said…
Oh, shit, I did, too! Well, one deserves to pat oneself on the back occasionally.

Thanks!

;-)
nonamedufus said…
You know, whenever I see "LOTGK" I always think in my head "Lotka"...you know, Andy Kauffman's tole in the TV series Taxi? Yeah. Oh, and congrats on the HM.
nonamedufus said…
You're better than me. My arms just don't reach there.
00dozo said…
It's because of the man-boobs, right? It's okay, I won't tell anyone.
;-)
K A B L O O E Y said…
All funny, and congrats to LOTGK, but I'm gonna say I think Mooog wuz robbed.
nonamedufus said…
Moooooog was robbed!? Somebody should call the cops!
nonamedufus said…
No, I just have short arms.
00dozo said…
I think I mentioned this before, but LOTGK always reminded me of "Lotka", too; I just thought it was spelled "Latke" - you know, like the potato pancake.

;-)
nonamedufus said…
I think you're right. I think we've been around this before. Probably the last time Lotka, er, I mean LOTGK won this thing.
LOTGK said…
Hey, I be hangin with the Dufus this week. I almost fell over when I read that I won this week.
LOTGK said…
Actually, its,
Ello Tee Gee Kay.
:D
LOTGK said…
Deebe deebe dahhh....
Seriously, I get that several times a month. But the most common mistake is LOTR, Lord of the rings.
LOTGK said…
I am not the best spellar on the net.
:D
nonamedufus said…
Don't fall over. That's Boom Boom's trick. Why do you think they call her Boom Boom? Congrats, guy.
nonamedufus said…
Are you a rapper or somethin'?
nonamedufus said…
Oh, yeah, I can see how that might happen, Frodo.
nonamedufus said…
You mean you ARE a potato pancake?
00dozo said…
It could been worse. He could've been a gefilte fish.

;-)
nonamedufus said…
I think we'll just passover that one.
LOTGK said…
No, I am not. However, I did stay at a Holiday Inn express last night.....
LOTGK said…
I never saw that trilogy of movies.
LOTGK said…
Took me a moment to process that but yes... :D
LOTGK said…
now I'm lost.....
nonamedufus said…
There's something about the word "express" in the name of a hotel that just doesn't sit right with me. Does that mean you don't get to stay as long?
nonamedufus said…
No, me either. But I read the books in high school.
00dozo said…
Take a left at the next right. Avoid any yentas bearing briskets.

;-)
nonamedufus said…
To hell with the caption contest. I think the comments are way more entertaining.
nonamedufus said…
Well I'll never be able to think of you in the same way again.
nonamedufus said…
Taje a left t the next right? lol
00dozo said…
I'll agree, but the comments are getting a little 'skinny' as it were.

(I think you can widen your 'girth' slightly in Blogger Design?)
00dozo said…
Just wait until you have to drive here.

;-)
LOTGK said…
It was under 12 hours, and let me say, Express must have a different meaning at Holiday Inn.
LOTGK said…
It's been around for that long?
LOTGK said…
I'm already ordering my Taxi coveralls.
LOTGK said…
I like a nice brisket.
00dozo said…
So do I. Speaking
of which ... *pulls brisket out of freezer to thaw*. I've got dinner for Thursday.Thanks for the reminder.

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.
