Pause Ponder and Pun #125


Wow it's our quasquicentennial.

Did you know we're well into our third year of Pause Ponder and Pun?

Who knew there were that many caption-able pictures on the internet?

You guys did. You've been leaving captions for over two years now.

This calls for a celebration.

Pass me a Beck's little buddy.

I hope you and your friend are drinking the non-alcoholic variety.

Be a shame to waste that stuff on little kids.

Leave your captions in the comments and we'll see you Saturday.

After a tough day of potty training, it's always good to kick back and relax with a cold one.

I can't come up with a caption, but that picture is HILARIOUS.

"Hmm. I wonder what we'll look like after our quasquicentennial beer."

(Happy 125th, dufus!!)

And, what's up with that word, "quasquicentennial"?? Say it twice and it sounds like you've had 125 beers.

*burp* ;-)

I had to look it up. I wanted to know if there was a word to describe 125. You know like centennial for 100. It really is a word. Who knew?
00dozo said…
To be honest, I had to look it up, too. It still doesn't really sound like a real word. It doesn't seem to roll off of the tongue quite right. ;-)

I fondly remember our town's sesquicentennial back in '76. Makes it easier to say quasquicentennial. Honestly.

{What is this swill? I asked for micro-brew.}

-You've come a long way baby.
-24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence?
-Remember, I before E, except at sea, or in Heineken.

Hmm.. so I posted my comments here the other day and then poof they are gone... not the first time. Is it Disqus, I wonder? Or a ghotst in the machine? And now I don't remember what my brilliant captions were. I posted two.

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.
