Fruity puns are ok.


So long as they don't come in pears with afternoon tea. I do so hate two t frutti.

Hardly a pun, but I once worked with a bandleader who announced "my personal request is To Be with You One Hour Tonight in A flat".

We also played a rag which he claimed was named after a rugby match: Fiji Defeat

As it happened, the music was a lot better than the announcements, which he admitted had been honed on years of public indifference.

Singing in a pub one night, I asked if anyone had any requests. Some bight spark piped up, "Yes, 'Over the Hills and Far Away', as far away as possible!" Another joined in with "Do you know The Sound of Silence?" "Yes" I foolishly replied, he said "Well shut the *^%&*>* up then."

LOL!;D

If I must stand trial for an infraction of this rule, I hope I'm judged by a jury of my pears.

Oh dear, not the fruit puns again....... Well I'd better get my helmet on if we're throwing fruit puns around again, of course its a pith helmet.

Now, did I say 'pith helmet', or have I got a listhp?

Fruity puns are ok.

So are computer puns.

October is not a time for mintsing words, it's hard to know ware to begin and when to softly ware something nicer.

You're right. that happened to me while visiting Indianapolis!

But don't make carpet (blanket?) pronouncements; some people LIKE their carpets pulled from under them!

When reserving your seat on an indian carpet with all your friends, always call centre, so as not to upset the equilibrahma.

I would recommend reserving your seat with a very large Indian carpet-travel call centre that hires huge numbers of part-time actors.

That way you will have a caste of thousands at your disposal!

It was an accident that happened in the wee small hours.
