American Idle

Another week, another crop of crazy captions.  I've gotta commend folks.  Week in, week out our participants demonstrate their gift for vivid imaginations.

Let' get to this week's whacky witticisms...

Quirky got us rockin' with:

David Bowie's love children band together to promote their new reality show: the Punkdashian sisters.

we took the bait let loose with:

Susan, Nicole and Donna (from left) anxiouly waiting backstage for the idols - the Wiggles - to arrive.

Ziva shook, rattled and rolled with:

Ever since Marissa decided to wear her peacock, she has single-handedly triggered more epilepsy seizures than the Teletubbies together.

And, finally, Don got down with:

The new Girl Scouts.  It's not just about the cookies anymore.

But it was Nooter who struck a chord with his winning entry:

(from the future)
now in its 28th season, as american idol struggles more than ever to keep from losing audience share, producers introduce a new segment called 'remember when'. this week, the band 'stiff nipples' performs the golden oldie 'my tattoos ate your baby'.

judge simon cowell, appearing slumped over in his wheelchair during much of the performance, finally commented 'that sounded like a monkey dancing on broken glass. it was utterly fantastic'. he then wet himself and was wheeled offstage.

Way to go Nooter.  I be howlin' and you be hangin'...with the Dufus!  Oww-wooooo!

Alas, I missed the contest this week, but that's ok there's no way I could have come up with better than what Nooter had!

Cheers Nooter, that's a great caption!

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.

"There once was a king very wise
Who spoke to his enemies in disguise
