Pause Ponder and Posteriors

Okay, the submissions are in and let me be frank. They're hilarious. I think we've got a great bun-ch of captions this week. You guys are really gonna relish some of these captions. To those of you who didn't quite cut the mustard this week don't worry. There's always next week to ketchup.

So, here we go. Here's our pic followed by our Honourable Mentions...and our big wiener of the week.

Y'all ain't gonna believe this shit. I can see Uranus from here!

It's true! You really are full of shit.

It was a close one between Madge and Skeeter regarding who left the most captions, with the edge going to Skeeter. But some times it's quality not quantity. Our top "dog" this week is Montreal's own Shawn of Stubborn Fool with his award winning entry:

David finally picked up the nerve to go see his doctor. 
The pipe sticking out of his ass was one thing. 
But that guy growing from the pipe was starting to get on his nerves.

Way to go Shawn. I didn't know this until recently but we're practically neighbours! Felicitations on the win today. You be hangin' with dufus. Wanna grab a smoked meat sandwich and a poutine. Maybe a Labatt's 50 to wash it all down? Be sure and let me know. We'll have to get in line at Schwartz's early, if we want a table on the weekend.

Be sure and tune in next Wednesday for our centennial edition of Pause Ponder and Pun. Yeah, our 100th caption contest! Hard to imagine we've been at this for 2 years now. That's like 20 in blog years. See you next week for a special edition of Pause Ponder and Pun. 

Oh, and pass the mustard.

I am humbled and honoured. And yet I knew I was going to win.
You're on but, I can really go for a Molson Canadian

Hey Shawn, congratulations guy. I think I'll stick to Labatt's. Your commercial demonstrates what I've thought Molson always tasted like.
Shawn said…
I would agree. There are only two home brewed beers I like, Labatt Porter or Alexander Keith's. Otherwise I would take a pint of Newcastle any day.

Congrats to Shawn :) and it's always an honor to be mentioned amongst the honorable mentions.... of which I am NOT. :(


Congrats to everybody and platters of poutine to everyone! (Better than YOU than me... poutine... UGH).

hee hee

Well, actually, apart from a micro-brew here and there the last Canadian beer I used to drink was Sleeman's. Now it's owned by non-Canadians not unlike Labatt and Molson. Now I drink Corona and the odd Saporo.
nonamedufus said…
You wanna get mentioned? Tune in Monday. I think you'll enjoy what I'll be posting.

French fries, cheese curds and gravy? It's a coronary on a plate! Yum, yum.

Congrats, Shawn!

And, congrats to all the other honourables!

I think y'all gave 'moon gazing' a hole new perspective. Butt, I digress.

Thanks for another mention, dufus.

I lost my taste for most beer some time ago but still drink it on occasion. When I lived in Canada, my favorite micro-brew was Upper Canada Dark Ale.

Those are all hilarious!! Congrats to Shawn!!
nonamedufus said…
Glad you enjoyed them, Meleah. They'll go down in posterior, er, um, posterity.
nonamedufus said…
Hey, no problem. You keep coming up with good ones.
nonamedufus said…
There's a lot of micro-brews around. A restaurant we go to in nearby Hull - Brasseurs du Temp - brews their own stuff and has about 12-15 of their own drafts on the menu. I also like Griffon, a beer brewed in Quebec by Brasserie McAuslan. Gee, all of a sudden I'm a tad thirsty.
Shawn said…
There are quite a few micro breweries in Montreal. McAuslan makes some good beer. And with the cold weather approaching I will probably switch to a hearty stout.

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.

Who spoke to his enemies in disguise
