Was it a hemp cable or an iron cable?

Isn't it illegal to promote marijuana via cable?

Let's all thank Geezer for his oh-so-generous gesture of paying for _all_ our travel, hotel and ANY miscellaneous expenses (e.g., lavish presents for the special someones) to Tahiti this December, 2010 for The Annual Punning Thread Conference! (He said invite friends and family, too, including mistresses/lovers...even kids' friends and their parents!! It's all on him!! Unlimited, really!)

Hurrah, Geezer!!


Three chairs for Geezer, he'll need to sit down when he gets the bill.

I'm all packed and ready to go, just waiting for the 1st class flight tickets to arrive in the post from the great Geezer.

While I wait, are there any good golf courses there? If so I'll practice my swing. I want to hit the ball squarely, not ta hit tee

Don, that's the spirit! Just think, at first, Geezer wanted to save money by having us all travel to Tahiti on a flying carpet. That would have been much too rugged an experience!

........ on a flying carpet.............

On a flying carpet? Tuft, tuft, tuft, the very idea. Besides, I tend to wilt on such means of transport.

Where's the TNS Minister of Transport? I don't wish to pile it on, but was he aware of this? He must do his job properly, otherwise he'll be made redundant in the ensuing cut backs? ......................... Axe Minister now............................

TNS Minister of Transport? Excellent idea, Don, he was formerly in charge of transporting salt. That's how he became a mover and shaker!

Speaking of transport to Tahiti, I hear that you no longer will get transported to Australia if you are a criminal in the UK, at least if you are Julian Assange!

Now that is a pun, even though it is true.

Now, locked in the cellar, was he there because he celled out, or was it because he had a poor cell reception?

I'm trying to figure out why he doesn't just paint a target on his forehead with a big arrow pointing at it that says "Shoot Here". Surely that would be a lot quicker than going through all this palaver?

You must be talking about C4M aka Chem. At first I thought he might be a spy working from his basement bed, undercover and underground, but now you've got me wondering if he's really an author who writes from his basement and has a best cellar.

I will echo the thoughts of the medical community that an echocardiogram does not reveal the artery blockages that led to my 5-way bypass last December (ouch to the memory!).

Not sure, but I do know that in jail convicts use cell phones.

Important news about texting!


The IRS (HMRC in UK) left a message on my cell phone that I owed them more money. It was a taxed message.

If it has an elevated Michelin stared restaurant, it will still be a nice soup rise.
