Pause Ponder and Pasture Prime

Okay, it's Saturday and time for this week's results. Here's our pic…

All the cattle are standing' like statues
All the cattle are standing' like statues
They don't turn their heads as they see me ride by
But a little brown maverick is winking' her eye

Well if that's the case it's gonna be a beautiful morning.

Sorry I got carried away there. And that's no bull.

Okay, okay, here's our honourable mentions:

A little hard of hearing, Amy Sue thought her friends said, 
"Amy Sue, you should date a cow, boy!"

…and then she said "Baaaaaaaaa!" Yeah, well she's really a blond.

Pretty good, huh? Yeah, I thought so too.

But our winner knows me too well and went after my peculiar penchant for pithy puns.

No matter how udderly ridiculous she looked, 
Daisy Mae couldn't help milking it for the camera.
She was just bull-headed like that.

Woot, woot Nicky! (What the hell does that really mean anyway? And do people still say that?) You may be pasture prime but the dufus will still let you hang with him.

What do you say we meet in Hawksbury and take a stroll in the meadow. I hear the corn there is as high as an elephant's eye. We can gaze into each other's eyes and get lost in the husks…or the tusks…until the sky turns to dusk and you tell me how much you like my musk. Or not. It's up to you.

Oh, here's your stinking badge…

It's yours… no, no take it.

Yeah, whatever Cheese Lady. Congratulations anyway.

See y'all next week.

Woohoo! I won a date with Dufus! But won't Mrs. D mind? No matter... I have more important things to worry about - like what does one wear to a date in a Hawksbury corn field? And do they make high heeled farmer's boots? :-)
Shawn Ohara said…
Nicky really know her bull.
Agent 54 said…
Well done! Actually I'd like medium rare.
nonamedufus said…
Will Mrs D mind? I dunno. I never asked herbivore.
nonamedufus said…
I've got a beef with that, Shawn.
nonamedufus said…
You are a rare one, indeed, 54.
ReformingGeek said…
That was a great caption and I think she's got the slang down patty, er, pat, but has she ever been cow-tipping?

Thanks for the mention!
nonamedufus said…
You know they throw those things, eh? It's called a Cow Chip throwing contest…
Debra She Who Seeks said…
Hahahahaha, all three are great!
nonamedufus said…
Oh, yeah, everyone was a comedian this week.
Shawn Ohara said…
It's funny, but I am pretty sure I have seen herbivore.
Dang, that was a good one, Nicky! Congratulations!
As for "Woot"... it's obviously taken from my name and means "What the hell, let's party!"
nonamedufus said…
Great minds think alike, I guess. I'd hate for us to be on the horns of a dilemma.
nonamedufus said…
She certainly is outstanding in her field isn't she.
nonamedufus said…
Well I should have said it sooner…and more often. I guess the fall down and go Boom Boom part comes later.
LOTGK said…
The correct position for "Reverse Cowgirl"
meleahrebeccah said…
HA! Congrats to Nicky! That was freaking hysterical!
nonamedufus said…
Mike, Mike, it's Sunday. You're supposed to submit these before Saturday.
nonamedufus said…
That's a picture of Nicky actually. Um, she's the one on the right by the way.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

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 …
