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!

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…

nonamedufus said…

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…
Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.
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 - 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.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

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…
