Pause Ponder and Deaf As a Post

Did no one notice this guy hasn't got ears?

No I guess not. And I think many of our regulars were "stumped" this week.

But we did have a couple of submissions. Let's see what they were...

Is that "Mr. Hanky, from South Park? Damn he's aged!

It's the unofficial mascot of the 2012 Quebec provincial election. Why? I don't know.

But the quip that got me going was...

Jim Henson's early concept, "Kermit the Log".

Way to go Shawn. You be hangin' with dufus this week. It's too bad the Republican convention has come and gone. We could have put that guy in Clint's empty chair and made someone's day.

I would like to thank my mother and father without whom this would not have been possible...
hahahaha! Henson would be proud.

I couldn't come up with anything, either, but just as well... Kermit the log is perfect!

So they're the ones to blame, then, eh?

Do you think proud's the right word? I mean look at that pic.
nonamedufus said…

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.

Tales From The Supermarket

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

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!"
