Pause Ponder and Pedal Ponies

Giddyup guys!

I have no idea where this picture came from or what it purports to represent. But that didn't stop you guys this week from trotting out some great captions...

Alberto Contador will not eat tainted meat at this year's Tour de France. 
He will ride it.

I guess this is what they call the Pony Express.

Am I the only one to notice that they don"t seem to be peddling, but thrusting instead?
It's why you need a trojan for your horse.

And in a rare case of art reflecting reality our winner crossed the finish line with...

I think you can expect the captions to be kind of Spartan this time around.

Way to go, Mike. You be hangin' with dufus this week. Speaking of Spartans, maybe we could go see the 7th place Senators this weekend. They're playing Boston. That'd be much better than watching the basement-dwelling Montreal Canadiens don't you think?

Thanks to everyone for playing. See you all next week.

Mike hit the nail on the head and deservedly won. I was only able to come up with a literary reference.

I'm very impressed, Shawn. However, the obscure D.H. Lawrence literary reference contest is Tuesdays.
Quirky Loon said…

And congrats to Mike!
Nonamedufus said…
Oh, Mike stole this victory from the others. You might say he's the king of thebes.
Mike said…

Since CheesyNicky won last week, could this be the beginning of a We Work For Cheese Dynasty?
Shawn said…
I thought perhaps I made too obscure a reference. But it made me chuckle.
Tuesdays you say?
Nonamedufus said…
Too obscure? Christ, I had to Google it! Don't tell anyone, okay?
Nonamedufus said…
Gouda on ya Mike! You know "cheese dynasty" sounds a little like an intestinal problem.
Kablooey said…
It's Mike for the win! Thanks, Mike. I won big money; my bookie liked the condom answer, so I got great odds.
Ziva said…
Yay for Mike! He was definitely not horsing around when he came up with that caption.
Nonamedufus said…
Yep, I goes you could say Mike was able to rise to the occasion.
Nonamedufus said…
No, I think he was very "stable" throughout all of this.
Nonamedufus said…
"I 'guess' you could say" Damn auto-correct.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

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 …
