Pause Ponder and Pokey-less Gumby


I couldn't make heads or tails of this pic.

Since I haven't seen him around for some time I thought maybe this was a rare picture of moooooog hanging out incognito, which is latin for inamask. (He's taller on the internet, don't ya think?)

Then I thought The Avengers were trying to spice things up for a sequel with their new super hero Green Pepper Man.

But I think you guys had some better ideas.

Let's see.



Boom Boom "Seuss" Wooters came up with:

I like green heads and I cannot lie.



00 "Sci-Fi" dozo gave us:

"Enemy Mine" takes on a new meaning on Earth.



And Quirky "election fever" Loon reported:

The Green Party (all things earth-friendly) begins his campaign and is received rather well.



My favourite off-the-wall caption this week goes to Mike who left us with:

The world's first toad to human face transplant recipient 
prepares to sing God Save the Quen for some reason.



But my overall favourite this week had to be Laughing Mom with:

Without Pokey to rescue him, Gumby's crowd goes wild.


Okay, L.M. Way to go! You be hangin' with the dufus this week. That was damn funny. Your momma sure didn't raise any blockheads.



Thanks to our runners-up and to everyone who left a caption this week. See y'all Wednesday for another edition of Pause Ponder and Pun.

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.
