Pause Ponder and a Periodontist's Wet Dream

Drill, baby drill!

A dentist could make a fortune from this guy. I think it's a guy.

He gives new meaning to the phrase gummy bare don't ya think?

Well let's see what you guys do think.

Jim Carrey's original head shot.

Jed's mom always told him he was a handsome boy
if he'd just get the hair out of his eyes 
and learn to accentuate his best features. 
Jed's mom never had too tight a grip on reality.

Top prize winner - British School of Dentistry

And we finish with this week's winner who, by happy coincidence, is Finnish...

Unlike most people, Steve never had a problem with biting off more thane could chew.

Zoot alors (that's French for "holy shit"!) Ziva, well done. Congratulations. You be hangin' with dufus this week. What do you say we hop on over to my dentist and we can suck back a canister of laughing gas. Good times! Of course you might argue it's really light. And I'd have to counter with it being less filling.

Thanks to everyone who played along this week. And a special shout out to 00dozo who's back among us after a lengthy absence. I think she's dropping bread crumbs around the interwebs so she can find her way back home. Sorry, 00dozo. I didn't realize what you were doing and I ate them. But if you take the third tropical depression on your left I think you'll find your way.

I'd say her win was pretty Swed, but that just wouldn't be right.

Did Ziva ever tell you about her little cat, Nor? Apparently it's a big eater. I wonder what a Nor weighs?
Ziva said…
Yay, me! I'm definitely taking you up on that offer of laughing gas, it's not every day you Finnish first, after all. I'll bring a danish, too, you should never party on an empty stomach.

I hear Finland has a tiny fleet. I guess you could say they have a scanty navy, ah. congrats Ziva. well done!
00dozo said…
Congrats, Ziva!

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.
