Pause Ponder and Poulet

I think if Marv Albert were providing a caption this week all he would have said was "Yessss!"

Or Dick Vitale would have dedescribed this as "a dipsy-doo Dunk-a-roo".


But, alas, I guess good old Marv and Dick had better things to do.

So instead, let's look at our Honourable Mentions.

I'll never surrender my bucket of KFC extra crispy, all beaks and feet.

A little to the left, Lower. Lower.
Oh yeah. THAT's the spot baby…
LOBO

Both excellent captions, guys but look who's hanging out with dufus this week…

LaToya went up for the block, but Cassandra came through with a 3-piece bucket.
Screaming Me-Me

Way to go Me-Me. This week you get to hang out with dufus. I hope you don't mind if we take a pass (no pun intended) on basketball and catch some football instead. It's okay. The NFL has it's share of birds: the Ravens, the Cardinals, the Seahawks, the Eagles and the Falcons.

Yum. Sounds much more interesting than KFC.

And here's your noname badge to commemorate this momentous occasion.


Marv, what do you think of Me-Me's win?


Thanks to all for playing. See you next week. Same time, same blog.

Another loss to a superior caption. I hang my head in shame. Well, not really. I have a lot of blogging to do yet.

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 …
