Why do we never have an Ugly Fruit month? Must Ugly fruits always be palmed off with some future date? We must try to figure something out.

We'll allow Melon this thread, but must banAnna.

I can ci trused up lemons, can you see them?

Mid-to-Late-October is:
Ugly Fruit Weeks!

Don_1, I simply wished to allay suspicions that I am a Mac user, therefore I could be potentially biased in picking Apple month :)

[We] must banAnna.


So let's all prepare for:
 
November, 2013, which is:
Banana Pudding Lovers Month!

But if we ban Anna, then November is a waste of time -- and that's pudding it mildly!

Gosh, I thought there were only 12 months in a year.

I think National Novel Writing Month is a novel idea.

Re. "12 months" -- at Punning Thread, mathematics, norms, etc. are usually thrown out the window. Take me as an example (I keep telling my wife that)...I'm thrown out of this place all the time... But I (somehow manage to) re-emerge from the shadows...

Donnah, I wrote a novel about a fellow who had a small garden. It didn't have much of a plot.

Its nice to have a seed of an idea though..

I was going to write a book about a broken knife, but it didnt really have a point, and my book about a short church sermon didnt have many chapters.

I'm not cross.

I just love crosswords.

In fact, I wish to be buried six down and three across.

A recent Pew Study confirms this occurs frequently.

Pointless, but rivetting nonetheless.
