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.
Raymond



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.
Vaguemax


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…
HA! LOL!

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…
Woohoo!

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.

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…
