Pause Ponder and Nom, Nom, Nom

This week's captions were a riot.  Seems no one had forgotten Dubya and weren't particularly disturbed by the fact he'd be eating a cat.

00dozo was really cooking with...

It's crow, goddammit!  You're supposed to be eating crow!


Jeremy from We Took The Bait served up...

Look, Laura! I'm playing a furry harmoniccordion!


Cruella Collett, a newcomer to our contest from Oslo, Norway, grilled us with...

I miss the White House chef.  Sweet corn tasted less fury back in D.C.


But it was Everday Goddess who really stirred the pot...

No, George, don't you remember?  You said:
If Obama wins instead of McCain then I'll eat my HAT.
Not CAT.
You really aren't getting this are you?

Woo-Hoo Everyday Goddess.  You be hangin' with the dufus this week.  Congratulations!!!

Thanks to everyone who played along and we'll see you again next Wednesday.  And, hey, for an interesting variety of blog content click through on the links above.

Quirks: I don't know but there's something about that picture that gnaws at me.

Well done, Everyday Goddess! Funny how George brings out the wit in so many people. Dubya jokes will never go out of style. LOL!

Tgoette: You like Bush jokes?

George Bush and Dick Cheney are talking, when Bush suddenly complains "I hate all the dumb George Bush jokes people tell about me."

Cheney, feeling sorry for his "boss," says "Oh, they're only jokes. There are a lot of truly stupid people out there. Here, I'll prove it to you."

Cheney takes Bush outside and hails a cab.

"Please take me to 29 Nickel Street to see if I'm home," says Cheney. The cab driver, without saying a word, drives them to 29 Nickel Street.

Cheney looks at Bush and says, "See! This guy is really stupid."

George Bush agrees. "He really is a dummy. There was a pay phone just around the corner. You could have called instead."

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 …

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…
