Don_1, there are rumors that we inmates of this looney bin all fell into poison ivy and started a rash of breakouts.


I went to a French restaurant called 'Le Mariner', where they asked if I wanted poissin. 'How strange', I thought. I declined the offer and said I would have fish instead.




Don_1, I hope you first removed the scuba gear before dining!!

[bizerl], I think you've earned youself an award for 'best newcomer' there. Demo will doubtless sort one out for you.




Will this one do, Don_1?

I should be a cryptic crossword writer!  ;)




Do I detect some skulduggery going on here?

Haha, no, I actually dig it!

I thought this might be a more admirable selection, but I bow to your experience.

A pictorial pun.

All this fuss for liílí olí me? I feel like a cad. ďAmy awards clever thinking but Oscar doesnít careĒ, my Grammy used to say that but she was baft as a brush (sorry, typo). No, believe me when I say that silence is golden, globeally as well as locally (my spelling IS off today!). Whether an emmynent scientist or student who doesnít give a fig, noble thoughts can ensue.

Don_1 and I regret that you didn't win the highly coveted newcomer Galaxy Award, but you did receive a constellation prize.

What a stellar thought! It's got me pulsaring with excitement. I usually try to stay neutronal on such matters but your radiated praise has singularityly made me go red, dwarfed by such TNS forum royalty.

I would love to go to this to get some good pictures. I would set the camera to manual, with the aperture open wide and the shutter set to bulb I would use my macro lens to get some good clovesups.

To keep warm, I would set light to a small commercial vehicle and pitch camp next to this van pyre.

It's traditional for you to be mooned now (I know, it's a bummer).

Garlic is stinky, but Don_1's punning performances are not!

Is this one ok, Donnah?




Oh I say!!!

She can moon me any day of week.

Mind you, its a shame the poor lass can't afford a pair of knickers. She'll likely get a chill in her gluteus maximus. I shall offer to keep it warm for her.

Now what have I done wrong? I made sure my hands were warm first!

Yes. Normally, every day they're a pain.

But on Saturdays? no asteroids!
