Pause Ponder and Pelage

Okay this was a strange pic this week. I didn't mean to ram it down your throats folks and I feel kinda sheepish about dong so.

I think many of you were on the horns of a dilemma in coming up with a caption. Let's see what we had...

Mary had a little lamb
Which converted into an elegant love seat.
Mary is now looking for some minks

Ewes not fat; ewes fluffy.

Now u can cover your meat and your seat, with lamb skin!

And our winner this week is that well-known interior designer from Montreal, Quebec:

When good chairs go baaaaaaa-d.

Okay, Nicky! Woot. Woot. Or should I say baa, baa. You be hangin' with dufus this week. Way to go.

Wanna come over for dinner? I seem to have an abundance of lamb in my freezer this week.

Nicky has thrown down the Pause, Ponder and Pun gauntlet!
nonamedufus said…
What an exhibitionist!
Nicky said…
I won? WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO! I'd like to thank the Academy and my parents who messed me up just enough to amuse other people and my children who regularly send me a little more over the edge and my boyfriend, Jepeto, for unwittingly (in every sense of the word) providing me with fodder and my best friend Mike for intruding me to the blog world (and alcohol) and of course, the inventor of the clothes line.
Cheryl said…
I knew you were a winner as soon as I saw this on the PPP post. Great line, Nicky!
nonamedufus said…
The inventor of the clothesline? Won't Jepeto buy you a dryer?
nonamedufus said…
Oh she's a whiner alright. Oh, um, I mean winner.
Nicky said…
No, silly! The inventor of the clothesline because otherwise I couldn't be hangin' with Dufus. Instead, we'd just be standing outside with clothespins pinned to our clothes and sticking out with no purpose whatsoever and that would just be weird.
Nicky said…
Thank you Cheryl :-)
Nonamedufus said…
Oh, yeah. I should have thought. Silly me.

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.

Who spoke to his enemies in disguise
