Pause Ponder and Pickles



Just when you think you've seen it all, along comes a picture like this. I mean what the heck is going on here? I thought this was an updated version of Looby Loo. But what do I know. Well you guys seemed to have an explanation. Let's see what some of you said.



The actual "reward" of the Nigerian spam scams.



Are those cucumbers in your mouths or are you just glad to see me?



What birthday could ever be complete without the bumps. And face dildos.



Finding shit like this on the hard drive is why I stopped using my dad's computer.



Sigh. I said "hold the pickle."



But Mikewj wins this week with his double whammy (not a euphemism) with:

I was Googling "Men with vegetables in their mouths" - don't ask why -
and it brought me here. Weird.

and

James suddenly realized that his worst fears about being sentenced to prison
were about to come true.

Okay, Mike, you be hangin' with dufus this week. What do you wanna do? I know. We could go down to the music store and see how many song titles we can find with the word "love" in them. Been done already, eh? Well feel free to copy my badge to your blog so you'll have something to remember this momentous occasion by.


Be sure and visit these guys' blogs by clicking on the links up there. These are very funny people. And many thanks to everyone for playing this week. All the captions were great. I only wish I could publish them all here. See you next Wednesday for another edition of Pause Ponder and Pun.

You certainly know your mind is in the gutter when you include the words, "(not a euphemism)" in your comment.
Heh, heh.

Congrats, BonyMike! We're all still trying to figure out how your mind works. But I like it none the less.

Congrats, too, to the honourables.

Thanks for another mention, dufus.

Are you saying Mike's a Loopy Loo...or a Loopy Light?
Mikewj said…
I like to think I'm Loopy Lucious. That's my rapper name, too.

Thanks for the nod, NoName! I kind of like Double-O's comment the best, but I'm not giving her my award. It's mine, all mine. ;)

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

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 …
