Pause Ponder and A Pair of Pontoons

I really don't know how this woman maintains her balance. Can you imagine the backache she has to put up with. She's defying gravity.

We had a "big" response this week. A lot of great captions. I guess pictures of big boobs just seems to bring the "breast" out in people.

I think our first runner-up had his eyes somewhere else. But he was very observant...

Nice spice rack.

Our next commenter went the practical route...

Octomom's wet nurse.

I really liked the next caption...

"...and that's how nonamedufus became my favourite blog ever."

But after all was said and done I just couldn't stop laughing at our winning caption...

Candy started drinking heavily after she lost a part on Seinfeld to Terry Hatcher.
Seems nobody believed her reading of the line "They're real and they're SPECTACULAR".

Way to go Nicky. You really know how to keep abreast of situation comedies from the 90s. Now you be hangin' with dufus. What do you say we head on down to Canadian Tire. I hear there's a big sale on headlamps.

Thanks to everyone for playing along this week. It's really great you all lent your "support" to Pause Ponder and Pun.

Heh heh. Congrats to Nicky and the honorable mentions! That pic still hurts to look at... I feel her pain. ha!
Nicky said…
Awww, thanks! It was an honour just to be nominated! As for going to Canadian Tire - do they have cameras there that can take pictures of things like silence?

I think if I felt her pain they'd bring charges against me.

Actually, when you think about it all pictures are silent, aren't they? Huh? OMG that was deep.

Congrats, Nicky!! Sadly, I wasn't much of a Seinfeld fan so I didn't get the reference.

And, congrats to the other honourables! Thanks for another mention, dufus. I'm nothing if not pragmatic.

Not much of a Seinfeld fan? Where the heck were you in the 90s? No soup for you.

Frankly, I didn't really care for Julia Louise-Dreyfuss which is probably why I didn't watch the show.

But the Elaine dance is a classic!

Sadly, of the few episodes I did see, that was one of them. Hence, my reluctance to become a fan.

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.
