Pause Ponder and Pretty Peculiar

Well, dropping the breadcrumbs must have worked. All kinds of folks followed us back to the main blog here for this week's Pause Ponder and Pun. Let's see what folks had to say about my buddy's magnetic personality...


He can polish your silver, iron your blouse, and build you a house - all while dancing a jazz number



Service for 8 has uncomplicated appeal. This set contains all of the essentials for your entertaining needs. Set includes: 7 forks. A silver plated serving iron. Three brick shaped sanpkins. And a portly Asian man who comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.



I can use super-glue without my fingers sticking together.



And our winner simply left me "speechless":

One look at Lady Gaga's father explains a LOT.

Way to go, Mike. You be hangin' with dufus. You can use that little badge there and wear it with pride on your blog, if you like. Tell me, though, do you think Lady Gaga's Dad was born that way?



Thanks to everyone for playing. We had a great turnout this week. Lots of new folks. I hope to see you all back again next week. In the meantime, click on the links and visit these folks' blogs. They're pretty funny there, too!

Woo-HOO!

A buddy of mine sang "Born This Way" Karaoke-style with a Down Syndrome voice the other night. Yes, tasteless and insensitive ... but the entire bar was in tears from laughing. Comedy stuff of legends.

-Definitely will add the badge.

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

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 …
