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

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…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
