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.

The Cinemax - Late Night version of "Every Which Way But Loose"

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.

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 - 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…
