Pause Ponder and Payphones

Well, I've gotta say everybody came up with great captions this week which makes it extremely difficult to narrow things down to two runners-up and a winner. But I'll try.

Here's this week's pic:


And here are this week's runners up:

Since the death of Steve Jobs, Apple has gone completely downhill 
with their latest product launches: the EyePhone and the HeadPhone.

In keeping with the party line, the candidates decided to dial up the crazy.

And our winner this week? Well you had to be a certain age for this one and since I am…

No you fools, I said dress up as CONE HEADS!


Good one Reffie! Those skits on SNL were hilarious. Guess what? You be hanging with the dufus this week.

Here's your dufus badge which you can wear with pride. What say you and I take a trip down to the phone store? It'll have to be in the States though. Rates are through the roof here in Canada. How long will it take me to get to your place, Reffie? Do you live a long-distance from me? (Heh, heh, I couldn't resist.)
Congrats again Reffie and thanks to all for playing along. See you all next week!

Way to go, Reffie! Enjoy hangin'!

We had excellent captions this week. Too bad we limited things to 3.
nonamedufus said…
Indeed, it would have.

Ahahaha! 'Phoneheads'! I loved the John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd days of SNL!


All of those captions are good. If that's the standard of entries, no wonder you had a hard time choosing.

I went to high school with Dan Aykroyd. Really. Yep, we had great captions this week.
Jay of The Depp Effect said…
Wow, really?? And was he fun? I really love Dan Aykroyd. I hear he's as smart as a whip, too.

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…

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!"
