Pause Ponder and Pun #100



I knew you were coming so I baked a cake!

It's the centennial of Pause Ponder and Pun this week. Imagine. A picture a week for 100 weeks. Who knew there were so many stupid pictures on the internet. And funny captions? We've certainly had our share.

I want to thank everyone for dropping by every week and making our little contest the success that it has become.

Can my readers caption? They sure can, uh, duh!

And here's another silly pic to mark the occasion. Hey why not? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

So march right up and leave your comment.

The more we receive, the more we'll trumpet about in Saturday's results post.

See ya then.

Happy 100, dufus!

I wish I could come up with some type of caption for the picture to celebrate this prestigious moment, but really, I've got nothing.

Screech?? U have to simplify it for us, well me here in the deep south.

"Newfie Screech" is basically a moonshine that was originally derived from the sediments of rum and molasses barrels during the rum running days of yore. Made in Newfoundland.

Now y'all be learned.

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.
