Pause Ponder and Preposterous Piercing

Hey, look who was hangin' with the dufus this week. Yep, my good pal Barry O. I was giving the guy a little economic advice, you know, seeing how we're so solvent north of the border. And look what the guy did. He framed my avatar. Naturally I autographed it for him because he's going to hang it in a very special place at the White House:

"Barack, I'll think of you when I occupy the bathroom."

So let's get down to things and maybe I can enlighten you on who will be hangin' with me this week.

Remember this guy?

Yeah, that's right. Debby Boone's husband. He really light's up her life. Well here's what some other folks said to make it into the honourable mentions this week:

Ladies this is why you never wait until last call to make your choice

Is that a lighter in yor tongue, or are you just glad to see me?

You think that's bad? You should see his penis.

Hey dig my new subwoofers.

*drum roll* and the winner of Pause Ponder and Pun #103 is *rim shot*

You don't even want to know where he keeps his smokes.

I quit smoking about 15 years ago, so I don't really care...but I can imagine. Way to go Nicki, you be hanging' with the dufus this week. If you wanna hang out, though, you better leave your smokes at home but maybe you could make us something fun with...cheese. What do you think? Is that a gouda-dea or what, ma belle amie?

Thanks for the honourable mention but I was serious. You should see his penis.

Never mind... Congrats Nicky.
nonamedufus said…
No thanks. I can only imagine. By the way, how do you know what his penis looks like?
Shawn said…
He sent me an email.
nonamedufus said…
Ah, well that explains things. You know I read that first sentence and thought it said "Some people wonder how to get rid of sperm". Silly me.
Nicky said…
NO WAY!!!! I won?! Woot!! And I didn't even have to bribe you or flatter you or trash the other contestants! Who knew you could win a contest that way? Thanks Dufus!! I'm getting the cheese platter ready right now.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, way, Nicky. Whey to go Cheese Lady.
quirkyloon said…

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
