Pause Ponder and Pun Envy



I should have known that a picture of a bunch of near-naked men would have brought the best out in you guys. I thought this was a very appropriate pic this week given the heat wave many of us have been suffering through. As my dear mother might have said about these guys "They couldn't catch their breath in short pants".

We had a lot of funny captions this week. Let's get to 'em.

They could have saved a lot of money. Instead of all those guys, one black dude could have displayed the whole damn collection.
Skeeter



You spin me right round, baby right round like a record, baby right right round round.



But the sign said Singles Night!
Whitey



Who needs latex when you have vinyl.



But our winner this week had me choking on my chimichanga! And that's not a euphemism. Although her caption sure got a rise out of me.


"Hey look! We finally got Disqus!"

Way to go Double zero, that was an hilarious caption. All I could think of after reading that was "they're doing it wrong". So you get to hang with dufus this week. You wanna come over and I can show you my 10 inch...record collection?

Thanks to everyone for your great captions and we'll see you all Wednesday for another edition of Pause Ponder and Pun.

I think we set a "record" for the number of hilarious comments. Too bad I couldn't share them all here.
Shawn said…
Most of the guys are on long play but the guy in the middle has a 45.
nonamedufus said…
So you're saying his record finishes quicker?
Shawn said…
I am saying, some people like to hold compact discs while others prefer extended play. I on the other hand prefer a boxed set.
nonamedufus said…
You're really in the groove.
quirkyloon said…
I love it! Disqus. I wish I had thought of that one! Hilarious! Congrats to all (and me...an honorable mention YAY!). *smile*
nonamedufus said…
Yep, 00dozo was solid gold this week.

Yay!! Disqus!! Good job 00
nonamedufus said…
She certainly goes in the "album" of great comments.
Shawn said…
All your records are just as good as the other – there’s nothing to get all cassette about. (took me four hours to come up with that one.)
nonamedufus said…
Well I wouldn't want you to make an acetate of yourself.
Those were awesome!!!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, there's actually some pretty bright and funny folks reading my blog. Imagine.
00dozo said…
Thanks, dufus! (Yeah, I know it was kind of a lame segue from one of my posts.) And I'd love to come over and see your big 10 inch ... record collection. Got any Men Without Hats??

;-)

Congrats to the honourables, too!
00dozo said…
Thanks, Madge! I honestly thought you would win - your 'latex/vinyl' made me laugh!
nonamedufus said…
I thought that comment was so funny. When you made another comment about hat's off to Devo's comeback I immediately thought of Men Without Hats. But I won't go there.
00dozo said…
Heh, heh ... that's kinda what I was thinking. Great minds (?) Okay, lets not ... go there, I mean.

;-)
nonamedufus said…
I say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And we can dance

Great captions! Singles night in particular struck me as funny. Good job to all. CDs and mp3's can't hold a candle to vinyl.
00dozo said…
Hey, we can dance
If you wear pants
Then you'll be a great friend of mine

;-)
nonamedufus said…
That's not how it goes. It's funnier though.
nonamedufus said…
The captions are great from the pic on Wednesday but so are the comments on Saturday. We have a lot of fun. You should join us next time.

And you're right. There's nothing quite like vinyl.

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.
