Pause Ponder and Pun #151 - We're Back

Hey, alright! You found me. Not like I didn't leave enough hints on Facebook and Google+. Some might have gotten tired of all that repetition but hey, that's what's known as marketing. Which reminds me I've gotta pick up some milk, bread and beer today.

Almost a year ago - it was November 2012 - I retired Pause Ponder and Pun. Hey, there's only so many funny pictures on the internet - that aren't cats - crying out for a caption. Well, guess what? We're bringing it back! I checked and there's a whole bunch of new pictures out there just screaming for your captions.

So, same deal as before. I'll run a pic on Wednesday, you leave a comment, the winner will be posted Saturday.

*Tell 'em what they'll win, Johnny*

I'll post the top three captions and the winner gets that dufus badge up there.

"Badges, we don't need no stinking badges," I hear you say.

Sure you do. You can post it on your blog. It's priceless.

So here's this week's pic. Good luck.

See ya Saturday.

And when you're done here, spin on over to my good blogging buddy Screaming MeMe's place.  She's back in the blogging business after a bit of an hiatus and has a caption thingy going on too! As well, the lovely and charming Chelle B, who is known around these parts as the, um, make that offended blogger, is running a caption contest as well. My God, we're taking over the internet. Drop by both their blogs. Tell 'em dufus sent you.

Now that I think about it.... inventing a new sport called Bungee-less Jumping might of been a bad idea.

THIS is why I usually drop by, tell Dufus I like his photo, sit back and wait for the winner to be announced.

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.
