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'!

Great captions this week!



Oh yea! I'm a hangin' and it's not by the neck....or a phone cord.


I'm feeling a bit old. Shopping! Yippee! I want one of them new high-tech push button phones!


Thanks!

We had excellent captions this week. Too bad we limited things to 3.

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.

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.

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki
