Pause Ponder and A Piggy Poitrine

No not poutine. Poitrine. That's French for breast. I'll make you guys bilingual yet. Or at least teach you the essential French words to know. You know,  things like "Excusez-moi, mais vous avez poutine sur votre poitrine". You never know when your wife or girlfriend might drip poutine on their, um, poitrine, right? And how better to tell her than by using the universal language of love...and cheese curds.

This is what you get when you google "poitrine pics":

You can see how very different those are from poutine. Okay now that I've totally distracted you, or some of you perhaps, let's try to get get back to the matter at hand.

Boy, you folks are good. Determining a winner this week was extremely difficult. There were so many great captions to, what I thought was, one weird picture. I wonder if it was old MacDonald's wife? Ee-eye-ee-eye-oh. And by the way, those certainly aren't little piggies. Any-hoo, let's take a look at this week's finalists...

No. I said you would look better if you had BIG tits.

Victoria's secret revealed.

A loaf of bread, two jugs of swine, and thou?

After this adverse reaction, the swine flu vaccine was pulled from the shelves

But our winner this week is an old hand at PPP and probably our most frequent winner. Welcome back to the podium Moooooog. You had what I thought was our breast caption (oops...a slip of the keyboard, there) this week.

Boobs: the other white meat.

Way to go, Moooooog. You be hangin' with dufus this week. Watchya wanna do, guy? Maybe we can order some take-out from St. Hubert BBQ. I'm gonna get some chicken nuggets. Knowing you, you'll probably want a poitrine de poulet.

Well that wraps up this week's Pause Ponder and Pun. See you again Wednesday for yet another stimulating edition of our little weekly contest.

The captions just get better and better week after week.

Periodically I just Google "funny pics" and voila!

Funny! Of course, mooooooog35 is always hanging with the dufii. Dufii is plural of dufus, no?

heh heh

And dang, those poutine boobs (heh heh YOU started it) look spooky. Well, to ME, they do. I'm sure the male readers will disagree. heh heh

I pity poor Victoria if that's her secret. Spooky? Oh, yeah.

Congrats, Mooooog!

And, congrats to the other honourables!

Thanks for another mention, dufus.

I didn't know St. Huberts were still around. I think I ate there once, many, many moons ago.

There's nothing like the sauce St Hubert makes in which to dip your fries and chicken. And St Hubert sells that sauce as well as a line of chicken soups in the grocery stores, in Quebec at least.

St. Hubert is good. Just don't eat the chicken.

I guess you can say, the breast man won.

Aw, c'mon It's not bad. Beats Swiss Chalet.

I guess you just did.

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.
