Punning is hard(ly) work! Groaning aloud here?

Have you seen my walking stick?

Yes, it went out for a walk


Don: stick to your guns, reprimand it as needed, but don't let this become a sticking point in furthering your harmonious relations with the well-intentioned walking stick.

Senile agitation?

Sounds like stirring up an Egyptian river.

I used to be a tap dancer until I fell in the sink.

I'll thank you not to plug your alternative occupations here. It can be a drain on rescorces to be over flowing with such information.

Anyway, water you talking about, I thought you were in to playing the bass in a group and tending to your crop of plumbs.

I think your ears are clogged. Do you still think I'm flush with cash?

I took a plunge into tap dancing, and I'm lucky I survived!

Also thought you had a better handle on the situation.

My advice:  don't confuse  a "Quintile" (in math) for an Italian ceramic factory.

November is.....National Novel Writing Month!

This may be novel to you, and news to me!

A novelist's career is not written in stone, so c'mon and write, you may just be the next Hemingway!

Paper the walls with all your Great Ideas for that novel!

And once you've made that promise to write,  keep your word!

I shall book a date to cover to this event. My page, Alan, will accompany me. I can get him to place my stakes on the horses that day, yes, I shall use Al for bets.

Will I get slated for that contrived pun? Another one for Demo to chalk up. He'll doubtless sentence me to 100 lines for that.

If I were a ship, would I be in decks?

There goes Don, using his index finger to ask a lot of pointed questions.

Drat & Curses, while thumbing through the book I have been fingered again by the Demo-punster. You've got to hand it to him, most face defeet at his army of puns, they are so far ahead of the rest. Any man, once beaten, well, hel bow to your superior puns if you kneed him to, or will have no option but to leg it, with his feeble puns in toe tow. His puns will have been waisted.

Just like Don, Grey's Anatomy has many humerus remarks.

...... humerus .........

Isn't that commonly known as the 'funny bone'?


The bone of contention here, is that ulnather bone which can hammer out jokes anvil you with joy and laughter is the scapula, though you would not agree if during WWII you had been in Scapula Flow. I hope I don't get a ribbing for that. Demo can be quite sternum at times.

Must pop off to the shop now, get Mr. Patela to supply me with a table cloth of a radius to fit the kitchen table. It will have tibia a blue one to match the decor. If I don't, I will only stirr up trouble with the Mrs.

"Ghouls without saying"?



WHOOOOSHhhhh


"Wow!!! What was that?
"I don't know, it went without saying."






Mod edit - the above animated-emoticon was brazenly plagiarized from Don_1 November 11, 2011 @ 04:05PM PDT. Scotland Yard advised.

"Hey!" Said Coropral Ricky, "That's a swizz."
"Are you sure rick?" Retorted Gen Eva, "if so may he Berne in hell. Pvt. Lucy, do your worst on him."
"Yeah Luc earn your wages and set light to his wohlen jumper."



From the above, you may deduce that I am off on my travels again at the weekend. Zurich for a few days. You could say I'm on a roll, ..............
Altogether now........ a...........
Swiss Roll  ::)

I wanted to know the best time to see the Dales, so I asked a local 'Wens le dale in full flower?'. He seemed to take umbrage to my query and muttered "Grrr you're just another tourist, there's still tons of flowers in bloom."

Another local said, "Eee dam you, you old codger. I'll tell him. Go down by the medevil fort for a good view. The rock fort is a popular site."

"Thank you Mr?" I queried.

"Just call me Chedwin." He responded.

"Ched, ah an unusual name these days" I said.

"Eee man tell him some other places," piped up another local, "and tell him the whey to brie sure he gets there."

Cheesy puns???? Now there's food for thought.

I wonder if brains would be good food for thought.

Eyeballs good for vision. Pigs trotters good for marathon runners.

Mussels good for weight lifters.

Sausages good for...........
