Pause Ponder and The Pepsi Challenge

Who knew a coke-addled blonde babe could inspire so many great captions. But I'm dealing with you guys, so nothing should surprise me. It's too bad we can only limit ourselves to just some of the submissions. But here's a taste...

I've tried snorting coke but the bubbles always get up my nose

I snort Diet Coke because I want to keep my girlish figure.

Purple Pamela used to do speedballs, but they made her stop sticking her head in front of the pitching machine. Then she tried moving on to horse, but wouldn't you know? Another concussion when it kicked her.

Finally, evidence that Coke's competitors tampered with their product before asking the public to take the Pepsi Challenge

But it was a previous winner and a former colleague of mine who had me snorting (laughing, that is - hey, humour's a natural high!)

Harold Camping's disciple NostrilDamus confirms end of the world!

Way to go Ray. You be hangin' with the Dufus this week. I would have thought that after all those years of working together you'd be tired of hangin' out with me but, hey, what the heck.

And congratulations to the rest of you deviants. Whether you were mentioned or not I sure appreciate you playing along.

Click on these folks' links and visit THEIR blogs. And if you'd like to talk to Whitey and Raymond who don't have blogs stay tuned. I'll be passing along their private phone numbers so you can call them collect!

hee hee

Yes they are, aren't they. I always get a laugh out of them, for sure.

Contrats, Raymond!

And congrats to the honourables!

I had forgot I submitted a comment (frakkin' Blooooger), but I do remember thinking she kinda looks like Courtney Love.

nonamedufus said…
NowI think Courtney love lived by the motto "things go better with coke". Hey, who the hell is Nooly?
00dozo said…
Among other drugs. Heh, heh. Of course, in hindsight, I thought of a better caption about Love and Cobain. Oh well, too late.

You do remember Mad Magazine - they had those "fold-up" back covers? I forget the caption, but it referred to Nostradamus' skills at predictions. When ffolded, the pic showed this monster-type thing picking its runny nose.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I remember the fold-up back cover, just not that one in particular. Some of those were brilliant.
00dozo said…
If I recall, it was the first Mad Mag I ever read. Still, I had no clue as to who Nostadramus was until years later. I dunno if it's still published.

Fun times.

My introduction to Nostradamus was through Al Stewart's excellent song of the same name in 1973. Some of his predictions were freaky.

Congrats on the win, Raymond! Good thing the world didn't end, or you wouldn't have been hanging with the Dufus.
nonamedufus said…
Don't encourage him!

NostrilDamus... great one, Raymond!

That one had me snorting. She doesn't so much see into the future but rather sniffs it out.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
