In a break from the puns, here's a malapropism:-

I went to the Doctor on the pretext of 'mens problems' on December 14th.

Doctor - Come in and sit down. What seems to be the trouble?
Me - Thank you Doc. First may I wish you a happy new year.
Doctor - Ah! Say no more. I know what your trouble is, you suffer from premature congratulations.

Just a min....... on second thoughts, that's not really a malapropism at all, is it?

The trouble is, (back to the puns) I don't usually know what I'm falcon talkin' about.

Will you two stop falcon about. I'm begining to regret using that pun. You're just orking a load of old rubbish. Get back to the serious business of punning, or I'll send a bird of prey after the pair of you, and when raptors fly, terror soars on high.

Now look here, Don, just because a crow is a four-letter bird, that doesn't give you the right to call a baby bird novelist a fledgling author!

Good Grief Demo, you've clocked up 6666 posts. Does this make you one (or six) better than the devil?

Don, this is exactly why we can't let evil people have flutes.

Because then the terrorists woodwind.

Does that make me a playgiarist????

Donnah, it's insane the way you collect large bird feathers.

It's just plume crazy.

We found a dead crow in our front yard but have yet to hear the caws of death.

I bet the caws is that the crow's spirit has flown.

Could be. I do know that the crow always carried some rum above its head, because it needed to lift its spirits.

Was it about some early seafares? You should have turned it into a comedy film; I can see the billboards now:

Staring Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Kenneth Connor, Babs Windsor, Joan Simms, Bernard Bresslaw and Charles Hawtrey.

A Peter Rodgers Production. Directed by Gerald Thomas

Carrion up the Crows Nest.

Unfortunately, this might not turn out too well for Don: I sincerely hope he realizes - that in all his enthusiasm for this Production - in Don's international traveling to promote said comedy film, the airlines will only allow him a limited number of carrion items per passenger!
