St Paddy Pauses, Ponders and Puns

Do you know what day it is, today?

The top o' the morning to ya!  Happy, St. Paddy's Day!!!

If you're remotely Irish you'll be doing one of several things today.  You'll be wearing green.  You'll be drinking green beer.  Or you'll be turning green late tonight from all that green beer!

In the meantime, take a look at this week's picture of our girls in green and leave a caption.  You've got until Saturday to come up with a winner!

And if you're still in a captioning mood, drop by Mad-Mad O'Margo's where she's got the second-best captioning contest on the interwebs.


The laughing was short-lived, as Angela, attempting to amuse her friend with her flatulence, discovered that green beer gives her the runs.

If interested, caption contest over at our place as well!

It's always funny until someone loses a green sock.

Julie was immediately out when she realized that 'All the ugly girls throw your feet into the air' was not preceded with 'Simon Says.'
Can you see my maxi pad through these jeans??

Here's hoping you blow green farts on St. Patrick's Day! Now, light 'em up!

Huh? That's a "real" picture. That's no fun. Go back and get one with snot running from some old lady's nose or something. You know. Something with some class.

Mary Pat is about to find out the hard way that combining green beer and Alli "may" result in oily bowel movements and the inability to control them.

Do these socks make my butt look fat?

That's not a sock, that's gangrene. Well, if you can't laugh at necrosis, what can you laugh at?

Top of the mornin' ta me, ya say? Well seyer, to that I have to say "'an tha res' o' the day to meself! ;)

Anyway, onto the captioning!

"Hey look, a green sock and a white one!"

To which Sally answers her with "Guess what, I have that exact same pair in My sock drawer!"

"Yay, we're sock sisters!"

When Claire went green, she did a pretty half-assed job of it. She didn't even buy two socks.

...and the rainbow went in here, right up my ass! who wants to look for the pot of gold?
Tammy and Faye got drunk on St. Patrick's Day and totally mistook the old Irish proverb about the wind being at your back as a challenge to blow out the candles by farting. Tammy won.

After drinking too much green beer, Maudlin watched her right leg slowly turn green, while Dorthea laughed at a leprechaun's jokes, despite the fact she kept mistaking him for a seat cushion.

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.

Who spoke to his enemies in disguise
