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 offensive...er, 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.

So far you've got some dandy entries. I got nothin' but I'm loving that you're back.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
