Pause Ponder and Pythons


This was one heck of a picture this week wasn't it?

I mean, look at this guy carefully.

What an asp!

Speaking of which, we had a lot of excellent submissions from you guys this week. For my part, I thought this guy lost something in the translation and thought the saying was "the early nerd gets the germ-an snake". But, hey, good thing I wasn't playing. Here's some of the folks who slithered on by this week.

Snakes on the Brain



I told you if you sneezed too hard your brains would fall out.



It's snot! What you think it is?



Now I was torn between the next two to actually determine a winner so guess what? We have a double winner - both of whom are quite funny. And when you see them one after the other you'll see how I just couldn't separate them.


It took one hell of a worm to catch Jeremy but, yes, he took the bait.
Whitey (from *spits* Toronto)

and

When Samuel L. Jackson declined a role in "Snakes on a Plane 2" the guy who played Mr Miyagi was happy to accept the part.

(I love Whitey's caption but have no idea
what it might be referencing.)

Way to go guys. You be hangin' with the dufus. Well, actually, without getting all technical about it, Whitey and I hung out last weekend, with Sir Drinksalot, celebrating Canada Day with a couple of brewskies.

So Jeremy, looks like it's you and me guy. What do you want to do? We could check out the ophidians at the pet store. Wadda ya say?

Thanks to all for playing this week. See ya Wednesday for the next edition of Pause Ponder and Pun.

(Dang, it's a bloody ghost town around the bloggerhood today.)

Congrats, Whitey and Jeremy! You both waxed on and waxed off with those captions.

;-)

And congrats to the honourables!

Thanks for another mention, dufus. (Hey, did you ever see that guy - a 'visual comic' - who would eat spaghetti and sneeze a noodle out of his nose and pull it back and forth? Gah! It put me off of my capellini for a month.)

It is like a ghost town today, isn't it? No, I hafta say I never saw that guy but I'll see if I can Google or You Tube it.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, geez, me too.

No problem, Cheryl. Thanks for playing!

I tried to find the guy I saw but got a whole bunch of other idjits that believe this to be a favourite pastime. Well, I guess it's better (and safer) than 'blue angels' (and, paleeese, you must know what those are).
nonamedufus said…
The only blue angels I found on you tube were the guys that do loop the loops in airplanes. I don't think that's what you had in mind.

Google "pyro flatulence" but don't try it at home - hell, don't try it at all!

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 …
