Pause Ponder and Primates

That's right. And along with this endorsement I worked out a sweet deal of a year's supply of Dos Equis. Thanks Most Interesting Man In The World!

Now I was going to write a funny intro full of puns about monkeys but I dipped into the year's supply Dos Equis sent me and the best I could come up with was what you might call pieces of rhesus. So enough monkey business. Let's  swing over the matter at hand. Here's a sampling of this week's captions for the pic that Malisa sent us.

The Missing Link

Sadly, Olivia Orangutang's mother's words
("If all the humans around you are are jumping off a bridge...")
came to her a second too late.

And the winner...of Pause Ponder and Primates...for two weeks in a row...

I'll jump in the water with you if you touch macaque.

Well Shawn, it's nice to see you've retained your edge after spending the week at Disneyland after winning last week's contest. This week maybe we could get together for a drink? I've got  basement of beer I need to work on. Hope you like Mexican stuff.

My thanks to everyone for playing this week. It was another great crop of captions you left. And to everyone else be sure and visit these guys' links. They're funny in their own write!

See you next week folks.


all great captions, congrats to the winner :)

No way! Two weeks in a row?! I'm on a roll. I think I should go out and buy a lottery ticket. If only I could get a salary for posting comments. Last week Disneyland. This week Dollywood!

They were weren't they. Thanks for stopping by.

I don't know if you've ever noticed but on the 401 on the way to Toronto there are these two huge cone-shaped storage bins the highway crews use to store sand and salt for the winter. I like to think of them as the Dolly Parton memorial. Just thinking out loud, here. Thought I'd share. Oh, and congrats.

Yee haw I got an honorable mention! Almost as good as winning. Almost. *grin*

Congrats to the others and especially Shawn.

I thought your caption was appropriate considering you're the missing link in zombie bloggy humour!
Shawn said…
But really, were guys, everything reminds us of someone's boobs.
nonamedufus said…
Good point. Driving through a parking lot with my wife this morning she stopped to let a woman walk in front of us. I heard her say "Nice boobs". I thought to myself, "huh?" Turns out she said "nice boots". You hear hat you wanna hear.

Congrats, Shawn!

And, congrats to all the honourables!

Well dufus, I had a couple of captions in mind but it was too late to submit them and, considering Shawn's entry, they paled in comparison. Maybe next week.

The most interesting man in the world is always good for a laugh. He does't laugh much but when he does he laughs at me.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, we missed you this week. But hey it's difficult to compete with the most interesting man in the world. Oh, and that guy in the pic at the top of the post/

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.
