Pause Ponder and Pity Poor Ronald


Ronald has definitely fallen upon tough times. They won't even serve him at his own drive-thru. Sadly, this picture demonstrates how low he's fallen. If you look closely you'll see he's put the cart before the horse meat.

What did you guys think this week? Well, I'm glad you asked...



Golden Arches? More like Fallen Arches.



Due to a recent lack of sales revenue, Ronald took a second job as assistant to the Hamburglar.



Ronald McDonald: the new mascot for meals on wheels... coming to a shelter near you.



*Drum roll please* And our winner this week is our old favourite from down New Hampshire way...


McDonald's unveils its new advertising campaign for the lower-priced McHomeless Meals.


Okay, moooooog! You done do'od it, dude. You be hanging with the dufus this week. Congratulations. I'd invite you to get together and hit McDonald's but for some strange reason I've lost my appetite.



Any-hoo, thanks to moooooog and the rest who played along this week. At Pause Ponder and Pun we have over 1 billion punned. Yeah, well something like that.

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…
