Pause Ponder and Pinch

We had plenty of great captions this week.  It was tough to come up with a winner.  For example, last week's winner, Kelly, gave us:

Are they ripe yet?

And perennial player Moooooog had:

It was on or around this time that Billy regretted his desire to stop breastfeeding.

Skye had several good captions, among them:

I think I like older women.  Little girls my age don't have anything like this to play with.

But it was FreakSmack who dialed in this week's winner with: 

Birwearwoooooooshhhh...  Biroooooo...  Come in Tokyo...  Birwooo...  Tokyo... Do you copy?

Congratulations FreakSmack, you be hangin' with dufus this week.  Way to go.

Congratulations FreakSmack, great job on the caption!

You know Mr. Dufus, sir, I absolutely loved this pic! Captions were jumping around in my head like you wouldn't believe! I do so enjoy coming up with captions, especially when they come so easily :)

Skye: Heh, heh, you left me with four, one of which made "honourable mention". Way to go. Practice makes perfect.
Don said…
Copy that...noname. Repeat copy. Raider out. Congratulations to the winner too. 10-4.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Roger, Raider. Over and out.
Me-Me King said…
Woooo-hooo! Congrats to FreakSmack, well done!

Me-Me: FreakSmack's the man.
nonamedufus said…
CL: He done dood it!
Leeuna said…
Congrats FreakSmack. Your caption was hilarious.
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna: Thanks for playing!
FreakSmack said…
Alright! Thank you!

I had a high school girlfriend who could never find the humor in that. I always thought it was funny...
nonamedufus said…
FreakSmack: Congratulations, man. You tweaked it just right.
Kelly said…
"Come in Tokyo." When I was a freshman in high school, a cute senior guy asked me if I wanted to play "Come In Tokyo." Naive me, who was flattered a SENIOR was talking to me, fell for it hook, line and sinker. I'm surprised he didn't take me snipe hunting.
nonamedufus said…
Kelly: Oh, that's rich! I'll bet you were so proud your chest swelled with pride.
Freaksmack nailed it! I tried and tried and tried, but couldn't come up with anything. Nice work!
P.S. -- I love bombs over Tokyo. Ambulance and red light, too. Good memories.

Mike: I laughed and laughed at FreakSmack. Then I chuckled over his caption.

Mike: (2) Are you complaining or bragging?

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 …

 Lust and Wonder - Aug…

I Do

It was noon. The sun shone brightly in the sky. Birds chirped merrily in the trees. The sounds of traffic drifted up from the street. George picked up his keys and headed for the apartment door. This was a special day. Perhaps the most special day of his life to date. Today was the day he would ask Georgina to marry him. Georgina was his girlfriend. French. From France.

He'd covered all the bases. He'd bought the ring, a bouquet of flowers and a set of knee pads. If she said "no" at least they'd have a good laugh over the knee pads. If she said yes they'd remember him down on his knees this day forever.

He grabbed everything, locked the apartment door and descended the stairs. The restaurant was nearby so he decided to walk. As he waited on the corner for the light to change he thought of spending the rest of his life with Georgina. Not that he was being presumptuous but he had a good sense she felt the same way too. He was sure it was kismet. And besides wi…
