Pause Ponder and Poofy Apparel

You tell 'em Philosoraptor. All you drive-bys who peek in but don't leave a comment? You'll never winnit if you're not innit. And what do you win? A fantabulous pic of me hangin' on a clothesline to post on your blog, share on Twitter and Facebook or blow-up, frame and hang over your fireplace. Or throw into your fireplace. Cool, huh? Well, whatever. But more than that, all honourable mentions and winners get free links to their blogs. Now where else will you get such a prize package, huh?

We have the delightful and da lovely Screamin' Me-Me to thank for this week's pic. A former blogger - and an extremely funny one - Me-Me lives just down the road from Quirkyloon in arid Arizona. I don't know if you guys knew this or not but Arizona has the unique distinction of having it's flag designed by the same guy responsible for that 60s animated psychedelic Beatles film Yellow Submarine. Groovy, eh?

So on to the business at hand. Here's our pic, followed by some excellent captions...


"This week on What Not To Wear we'll be showing you
how to safely store a ladder"

Picard: I think it's time to try some unsafe velocities.

And this week we have a repeat winner. Laughingmom achieves her second win in a row with:

Sometimes a Rocky Horror fan just needs to "dream it" not "be it".

Congrats, Laughingmom. Like the sign says" you be hangin' with dufus this week. Let's see. Last week we undertook some yoga, bare. (Heh, heh, a little play on words there.) How about this week we get together and try on lady's lingerie. What? No it's not something I would normally do. But sometimes you've just got to go where no man has gone before. Eh? Some men HAVE gone there before? No kidding? Oh, well. There's a Rocky Horror Picture Show revival in town. Wanna go? It's just a jump to the left from where I live. It's a real marathon, though. There's a science-fiction double-feature on as well.

Thanks to all for their wild and whacky captions this week. If you're reading this click on those links to visit our winners' blogs.

And remember the word of the Philosoraptor, folks. You gotta be innit to win nit.

See everybody next week.

heh heh. Thanks for the mention. However as funny as Laughing Mom's caption was... I really thought 00dozo's "Engage" might take it this week.


Yay for MeMe for providing a fun pic!

Thanks dufus and MeMe for the picture and the win...I'm feeling touch-a-touch-a-touched by your attention. Getting your badge is like getting the Charles Atlas Seal of Approval. As for trying on lingerie, I'm sure my Hubby wouldn't mind if I do, but maybe instead I'll ponder whatever happened to Saturday night and feed my family some Meatloaf for dinner.

I'm glad MeMe has needs I' able to fill. I'm glad she sent me the pic. She used to have a great weekly caption contest, too. I laughed a lot over 00dozo's comment.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, those are all great puns. I'm gonna have a run for my money of you become a regular commenter. I think what influenced me was that I only just watched that movie on TV last week yet made no reference until you made that comment. It just caught me in such a way that I snorted my Corona outta my left nostril.

Oh, by the way, you know what Charles' girlfriend said to him after the first time they made love? "Oh, Charles, at last."
00dozo said…
Congrats, Laughingmom!

And, congrats to the other honourables!

Thanks, dufus, for another mention. I probably wouldn't have come up with that one if you hadn't made the "Picard" reference. My other caption was inspired by your "Picture This" post about Christmas songs. It's probably the only Christmas tune that I can tolerate anymore.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
