Pause Ponder and Pun #105


Captain Picard?

Well, whoever. This guy made it, so, he's definitely gone where no man has gone before.

Wouldn't you say?

You wouldn't?

Then what would you say?

By the way, this is a first for Pause Ponder and Pun. Our pic has been sent to us by a fellow interweb interloper. Yeah, Screaming Me-Me sent me this. You remember Me-Me? Funny former blogger from arid Arizona? Yeah, that's her. No, no not in the picture. She sent me the picture.

Never mind.

Hey, if you want to send me a picture leave me a message on Facebook or e-mail me at

We'll see you Saturday.

I think he's downright sexy and doesn't even need a pole.

This is disgusting. Everyone knows you wear red pumps with fishnet stockings.

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

Tom Colicchio is very serious about his role of head judge on Top Chef.

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


I can't take credit... I looked it up.

Picard: [after being transported to the Scimitar] Why am I here? Why have you done this?
Praetor Shinzon: I was lonely.

"Lacey things, the wife is missing.
Didn't ask, for her permission
I'm wearing her clothes,
her silk panty hose.
Walking around in women's underwear."

Ahahaha, great captions! I'm curious though, how would Moog know about wearing red heels with fishnets? And, no, I'm not buying the strip joint angle.

"Make it 'sew'"

Little fabric joke there. Get it?

Ok. I'll go away.

Oh damn, I forgot the gloves. How could you shoot this without the gloves! They complete the look!. Geez, Worf, Tasha would have found the gloves.

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.
