Pause Ponder and Appropriately Placed Plumage

You guys aren't serious. How could you be after submitting some of those captions? And the rest of you drive-byers, you're far too serious. Look at the hilarity you're missing out on.

In honour of the annually televised Victoria's Secret Revealing Underwear Fest last week - or as I like to call it "Bras and Panties-palooza" - we ran a little picture inspired by VS in which a model displayed an ordinary outfit; one you'd probably wear to work or to do the groceries. Let's see what our contestants came up with...

If that's a swan, she looks like she knows how to dive.

Awaiting two millennia for the acceptance of same-sex marriages,
Archangel Michael finally emerges from his closet.

Teacher says, every time a bell rings on the tattoo parlour door,
an angel gets her wings.

Now you may recall Shawn won our last two contests and was aiming for a third this week. However in our little game of groans Shawn's crown was captured by a guy who's no stranger to this contest, our all time winner, who just doesn't mince words:

I'd pluck that.

Ha, ha, Moooooog, your name's almost as long as...your caption. Way to go, guy. You be hangin' with the dufus. What do you want to do? We could hit up the Victoria's Secret store and try on lady's lingerie. (Did I just say that out loud?) I mean, I mean purchase some for our significant others. Yeah, that's it.

Thanks to all our contestants for playing along and, hey, don't forget to click on the links and visit these folks' blogs. They're even funnier in their home environment.

See y'all next week.

As soon as I saw Moooooog's caption this week I knew my reign was over. Not only is his caption funny, it is also true.

You were sure on a roll, guy. But you were up against the master this week. But if Moooooog craps out on that trip to VS, maybe you'd be interested?

Moooooog's comment was really HILARIOUS.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, Moooooog can be like that.

Congrats, Moooooog! You really nailed it this week.

And, congrats to the other honourables!

Thanks for another mention, dufus.

Woot! On a related note, they actually sell these wings in Victoria's Secret. I've been plucking feathers out of my teeth for a week now.
nonamedufus said…
So is that a yes on the visit to Victoria's Secret? I'd really like to know what her secret is.
nonamedufus said…
You don't say something like "nailed it" to Moooooog. You don't wanna go there.
nonamedufus said…
Seems he has a real talent for this.

But isn't that the point of "PPP"?

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.
