The Return of Pause Ponder and Pun...It's Coming

Captioners are standing by.

Only two days until PPP. No, I'm not incontinent. I'm talking about the return of Pause Ponder and Pun, my caption contest.

We're yanking it out of the closet dusting it off and ready to run a whole new series of weird and wonderful photos for your captioning pleasure.

We intend to give that Screaming MeMe a run for her money. She can't be the only one in the blogosphere to run a caption contest. So she and I have agreed to give you a caption couplet every Wednesday. Just like old times.

Tune in every Wednesday, then, for a chance to win my badge.

You could soon be a member of that elite group that's hangin' with dufus!

Do you know how hard it was to promote this bloody thing today. I've been trying for 4 hours to post it to Facebook. It finally worked. I was beginning to wonder "What if I had a caption contest and nobody came?" So let's see, that's one, counting you.

Are you okay Meleah? You sound like you might be in some pain.
Shawn Ohara said…
In honour of the relaunch, I will come up with 8 different captions. They will all be terrible but 8 it is!
nonamedufus said…
Good on ya. Um, you'll leave that rifle of yours at home, eh?
nonamedufus said…
Gez, Shawn, you haven't even seen the picture yet. Good luck, guy.

I gather that this contest is different from Punt Pass and Kick.

Oh, very much so 54. At least here I have more control over who wins.

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.
