Pause Ponder and Pass

There were a lot of great comments again this week.  Picking a winner was no slam-dunk I tell you.  No pre-game show; let's go right to the runners-up.

Moooooog double-teamed us with:

Aren't you glad you use dial?  Don't you wish everybody did?


Jimmy misunderstood when the coach said they were going to "lick the competition"

ba-hutch, who's blog I couldn't link to, must have been on a fast break when he came up with:

How to keep the canaries away

For any of you who saw the video in my post Monday, you'll know what he's talking about.  Good one ba-hutch!

Chris@Knucklehead scored a 3-pointer, one of which was:

Schwartz was whistled for setting a "moving lick"

But previous winner Tgoette drove to the paint with:

If you order second armpit lick, you get eggroll

Thanks to all for playing the game.  See you next Wednesday.  And I only hope my Celtics can emulate Tgoette and come out on top in their series with the Lakers.

Tgoette?  Congratulation dude.  You be dunkin' with the dufus!

Gross! Just the thought of licking a sweaty armpit is sickening. In fact, licking any armpit, sweaty or not, is sickening. Thought I'd better clear that up.

Quirks: Um, because the guy forgot his right guard? Ha, ha, get it? Right Guard is a deodorant and a basketball position! (oh, sometimes Im just too funny.)
nonamedufus said…
Don: I'm with you, Don. It's an offensive move. Ha, ha, I did it again! Offensive move!
Leeuna said…
Great captions everyone. Congrats to Tom. That was hilarious.
Tgoette said…
Thank you dufus and all of you for your kind words! You are all too....what's the word...oh yeah, kind! I will carry the 'dunkin with the dufus!' mantle proudly!

Thanks again!

Go Celtics!

Leeuna: Yeah, I thought Tom's caption was pretty hilarious.
nonamedufus said…
Tgoette: Yay, another Celtics fan. I knew there was a good reason for awarding you the "hangin' with dufus award!

Congrats to Tom!

Ha ha dufus! I bet you wish you could play in your own contest sometimes. "Right guard" and "Offensive move". My morning groans.
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: Oh, sometimes I'm tempted. But I make up for it with my puns in the post and the comments. If you groaned over them, then they've had their desired effect!

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
