Josh writes of the recent list extension to 52 excuses for ‘the pause’.
Celebrating over 50 Pause Excuses – our unique collection of fully grant fattening tasty morsels
We need Admad to do a spoof of 50 ways to leave your lover. Change the words to 52 ways to excuse your pause.
I’ll work on it. For lols only, you understand.
Awesome! Well done. I’m sharing this.
Admad – you is a legend!
Your previous works have been worth every LOL!
YOu never disappoint! Thanks! I will never listen to that Paul simon again without thinking of the pause! 😆
Poor Mike, he’s suffering from male mental pause.
Watch out for litigation
Should that be ligatation?
Well, he is developing those moobs.
Fifty Shades of Bray ?
Josh has surpassed himself ! 🙂
Josh has reached new heights with this one.
Fabulous and Stupendous. Do I need to add 50 more?
Climate science is like a box of chocolates. You never know what excuse you’re gonna get.
Careful here Josh, You’re using Grimace’s — from McDonald’s fame — likeliness.
I will never look at a box of chocolates the same again!
‘H’ot is not!
Apologies to Ogden Nash
I found this interesting article. I could not help but note that every one of these applies to the church of CAGW:
Over 50 excuses reminds me of an Einstein quote…
When a pamphlet was published entitled 100 Authors Against Einstein, Einstein retorted “If I were wrong, one would be enough.”
This is my favorite Josh yet, and that is saying a lot given what he has produced so far.
Perhaps there should be a mounted knight in full armor in the background with a banner streaming behind him with this slogan on it,
Adversus Solem Ne Loquitor
PS – The knight could have a resemblance to Svensmark.

PS – ‘γνῶθι σεαυτόν’ pronounced in English as ‘gnōthi sauton (or seauton)’.
Perhaps Dr Mann is in his local Greek restaurant, has just .consumed “brain with sauté potatoes,” and is beginning to enjoy his just desserts.
with 52, you have a Deck of Cards for building a flimsy House of Cards
Don’t forget, Bryan, you need to add a couple of Jokers! Now, I wonder…..
Looks like Mickie Mann might still have a job after all
Ya’ll is barking up the wrong tree. Everyone knows its not the heat but the humidity that kills you.
Blow me down, Josh! You seem to have mastered the art of those ‘Magic’ pictures: cross your eyes and all is revealed. If one looks to the right of picture (Mann’s left), sitting alongside him is Casper’s ghost – eyes wide open and hand to mouth! I kid you not! It shows up quite well on my laptop!!
Maybe it’s the Ghost of Climate Past (ymmv)…
Got him. Took a sec…
great eyes! got the ghost!
Just a shot in the dark, but I think Josh has been watching reruns of “Scrubs.” In particular, the one where Janitor eats the potpourri. Still, it is a wonderful adaptation.
Also Prof. Joanna Haigh from Imperial College London is quite happy about the many sweet excuses of choice as you can listen in this BBC interview: … 😉
And I forgot to mention:
Prof. Haigh claims here that the climate pause wasn’t an surprise for her IPCC tribe at all… !??!
Really? So why didn’t they tell so in advance? And why did they not admit the existence of the pause until around 2 years ago
Re: “Every excuse under the sun (except the sun…”
Except that “the sun” was… well, Number One.
Indeed! Those chocs make no sense whatsoever 😉
Plus it’s offensive to see parody of someone whom I’m beginning to resemble so closely. (I just need to grow a goatee.) I’m just glad to see you drew the line at the man-boobs.
Didn’t Simon & Garfunkel have a song, “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”?
Absolutely brilliant Josh!
That picture sure does his bald porkiness with the sparse chin whiskers proud!
Remember, William Tweed , known as Boss Tweed’s Quote
“I don’t care a straw for your newspaper articles; my constituents don’t know how to read, but they can’t help seeing them damned pictures.”
These aren’t just chocs, these are climate science chocs.
What flavours would there be?
Ess-oh-tu – Straight from the orient this mix of finest sulphur with a double helping of creamy oxygen wrapt in a smoky shell.
Nox – a flavour to make your mouth water if not your eyes.
Volcano – this little cone is packed full of hot gooey stuff that will liven up the dullest of parties.
Cherry Pix – we’d select the best and discard the rest to ensure that you feel the heat.
En S’eau – This naughty little choc comes in hot and cold flavours but watch out, it has a nasty habit of repeating on you.
La Ninas and El Ninos – right next to En S’eau in the box, these tasty treats make things really unpredictable. Caution, may cause wind.
Missing Heat – Sorry, this is one confectionary we haven’t found yet but we’ve left a space in the box for when we do (disclaimer – we offer no compensation for the shortfall but assure customers it will be in the next selection you purchase… or the next (disclaimer – this assurance should not be considered a binding contract or guarantee)).
Aerosols – these butt hole shaped candies are a firm favourite with the climate scientist in your life. There’s no occasion where they won’t be welcome. But be careful, take too many and your arguments begin to stink.
You beat me to it TinyCO2. Cherry Pix sounds yummy. I was trying to compile a list of chocolate selections too.
Need to work on . . . .
For those non brits who haven’t seen the original advert
