Would that not be a General of fence, as it is more likely to be a recurring theme in the run of things.

Q. What do you call a man with sponge, jelly and custard in his ears?

A. Removed due to 'no name-calling week'.

DON!!!

Shame on you, you have failed to point out that January is International Creativity Month.


I told my friend all about your creative writing class, and she said that she had a simile experience.

Don, sorry about your PunAward, the punning thread budget only had enough in Treasury to get you 2010, not 2012.

By the way, next time I would recommend getting your cavity fixed by your regular dentist, and not by some guy who is just filling in.

There needs to be a new definition of 'pundit' as in "someone who offers advice on how to pun(ed) it" ;D

My wife and I started to date after she backed her car into mine.

We met by accident.

Did she say "gimme a break/brake" or "gimme a new Ford"?

International Creativity Month eh?

Well, no problems on that score, I create havoc wherever I go!

Except on a ship, where I tend to create hammock wherever I go. If you cant't work that out, just sleep on it a while.

Is your wife's name Robin?  Was she driving the Backmobile?  Or was she just hitting on you?

Ah ha! I spy an opportunity..........


We had no idea how to make a batter until we found a readymade pancake with the ingredients imprinted on it. I suppose you could say the Pancake taught us.

To continue......

We made our pancakes when we were camping in a horsfield. We had pitched our tent close to the edge of the field, so we felt rather marginated. But Hermann had picked a good site. 'E chipped away some rock to make a good flat surface for our camp. Then he scuted around collecting firewood to make a curry. He's a real star and is spurred on by the heat of the moment. While he was cooking, I acted as his 'go for'.

After we ate, I burst forth with a loud belch. Leonard looked at me in disgust. "Leo, pardon me!" I exclaimed, but 'e stunned & boxed me around the ear anyway.
