Pause Ponder and Pinwheel

Wow, we got a crap-load of captioners for the return of Pause Ponder and Pun. I want to thank every one of you for dropping by and leaving a caption.  Not to mention those that dropped by and left a comment indicating they were too intimidated to leave a caption (you know who you are).

This was our pic...

I'm about to cite 5 entrants from this week. An unusual event to be sure. Two get special mention:

Boom Boom Larew, the Not a Cat Lady who said:

Everyone's jumping for joy, now that Pause Ponder and Pun has returned.

And Shawn the Stubborn Fool with this caption:

Nonamedufus takes the plunge as he relaunches Pause Ponder and Pun,

I had to mention these guys as they both appealed to the narcissist in me

Now here's who else got a laugh from me this week:

Cheesy Mike from We Work For Cheese posted:

After decades in space, China's first satellite finally re-enters the earth's atmosphere.

Agent 54 rose to the occasion with:

If you train hard, concentrate, focus and eat Taco Bell many times, 
you can gain the ability to fly using the power of your own farts.

But the caption that had me snorting Corona out of my nose was Malisa over at Moonlight Hallow with:

Competitive Olympic athlete Phuc Yu won the gold 
with his famous colon cleansing triple twist sphincter splash.

Way to caption Malisa. You done good, girl. You be hangin' with dufus this week! What do you say we head on down to the gym and ask Phuc Yu to teach us a few of his moves?

Oh, and here's your badge...

Thanks to everyone who played along this week. See ya Wednesday for a special Halloween edition of Pause Ponder and Pun.

Oh and, hey, I didn't highlight these guys blogs for the good of my health. Get on over to their hangouts and see how funny and creative they are. Thanks.

Oh hell! You and I had a Vulcan mind meld this week. These are the ones I'd have highlighted and Malisa's caption is the one I'd have chosen too. Now, let go of my brain. I have things to do today!
nonamedufus said…
Wow, Cheryl, you should run a caption contest!

You may beat me in fantasy football, Michael but I'm afraid you've lost here.
nonamedufus said…
Exactly what I was gonna say.
Nicky said…
Yeah, we know who we are! :-) And I so wanted to win...
Congrats to those who did play and to Malisa FTW !
Agent 54 said…
Congrats to Malisa, a fitting winner indeed. I must now re-evaluate my entire life and try again for I know disappointment all too well.
Malisa was spot-on with this one! Way to hang, Malisa!
nonamedufus said…
You were one of them. If you wanna win you gotta leave a caption. It's a caption contest. Hello?
nonamedufus said…
Oh my. I hope you come back next week 54.
nonamedufus said…
Oh yeah. She be hangin' with the dufus.

I thought you were gonna quote Helen the Hapless Hooker who once said "it's important how many times you get knocked up".
Cheryl said…
nonamedufus said…
Sure, and you could take the pictures too!
Shawn Ohara said…
Now that Pause, Ponder and Pun is back, I now have something to do between Wednesday and Saturday.
nonamedufus said…
You're welcome. Hey, where's your 7 other captions?
Shawn Ohara said…
They are all there. I stacked the captions one on top of the other.
nonamedufus said…
I think you're telling me a tall tale.
Laughing Mom said…
congrats to Malisa - that one was a snort-inducer!
nonamedufus said…
It was indeed. But now that she's won she's gone awol.

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.
