Pause Ponder and Picking a Place to Park

Welcome to another week of our Mickey Mouse little caption contest, where once a week those who participate enter the magical kingdom of captioning. And it's where I get the chance to wade through all your goofy submissions. So let's see what we've got going this week.

I don't know if this is Main Street U.S.A. but this guy sure took a wrong turn on Autopia.

Let's see what you guys came up with for this...

A metaphor for Rick Perry's campaign

to which 00dozo responded:

I assume the train is reserved for Cain?

Another woman tries to parallel park

Honey, I told you that woman on your GPS was nothing but trouble.

Drum roll please... This week's witty winner is...

OnStar. How may I help you?

Way to go Shawn. You be hang in' with dufus. We'll see you in Anaheim. And we'll see everybody else next Wednesday when we run a pic submitted by Malisa from Pent-up Photos. She has some great pics on her blog. You should check it out!

PPP* -- pee, poop and pampers
Shawn said…
Much appreciated!! But, next time? Ask me before you use a picture of my car.
nonamedufus said…
Okay, if it makes you happy.

Chello06, you may be unclear on the concept. You see the idea is to comment on the picture, not the title.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, nice goin' Shawn. I guess parking in Montreal's a whole other experience, eh?
quirkyloon said…
All snort worthy captions! *snort*
nonamedufus said…
Ha! I snort in your general direction!
Malisa said…
Oh, darn, I forgot to play this week! Great captions though. Congrats to the winners!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, where were you? Don't forget to play next week. It'll be one of your pics!
00dozo said…
Congrats, Shawn! Have fun at Disneyland and, if you've never been before (and for the sake of your own sanity), avoid the ride consisting of small gondolas and an exorbitant amount of singing dolls. They put "Chucky" to shame and they don't even need a knife.

And, congrats to the honourables!

Thanks for the shout-out, dufus! Funny, until I read it today I didn't realize it rhymed.

nonamedufus said…
You've been to Disneyland, 00dozo? It's a small world after all.
Shawn said…
Since I am closer to the right coast I will be heading to Disney World®. Is there any place where there isn't singing? Maybe at the Crystal Palace.
nonamedufus said…
You've gotta go to Jelly Rolls a bar where they have duelling piano players. You'll have a great time. The beer helps.
00dozo said…
That, and you can always get up and leave if the dueling piano players break into a rendition of "that song", whereas in "that ride", you cannot.

00dozo said…
No singing in Disney World (or Disneyland, for that matter)? Ha! Good luck! And if you are bringing young kids with you, man, you are so screwed. (Jest kiddin'.)

Jayne said…
I got an honorable mention! And in such stellar comedic company, too. Congrats, Shawn.
Jayne said…
That's why you're a genius Dbl O.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, and the first honourable mention. Well done.
nonamedufus said…
I didn't know 00dozo was one of the gentiles.
nonamedufus said…
But you won't get up and leave. It's the beer.
00dozo said…
I'll always be gentle with you, dufus.

00dozo said…
Thanks, Jayne! But, as always, you inspired me.

nonamedufus said…
What was the genesis of that comment?
00dozo said…
Really? You had to "put lips" to it? Gah! I'm probably going to have nightmares now.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

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 …
