Bernie Madoff was never this devious!!


Perhaps not, be he sure made off with a lot of people's money.


Right, Geezer, and that reminds me that when Peter Pan spoke to Captain Hook he made an off-hand comment

Wasn't there a tribe of very small people somewhere that called themselves the Flockawie?

Oh, it's true alright. They were so diminutive that they could easily get lost on your lawn if you hadn't cut the grass for a couple of weeks.

See, that's exactlty what they were afraid of. So, to summon help from a neighboring tribe, they bunched together and started yelling in unison,

"We're the Flockawie! We're the Flockawie!"

Well, there really isn't any more to say, unless you say it quickly ten times.

So, basically, you didn't get it. Sheesh!

I suppose that's what happens when you hang out with a bunch of wannabee long horns.

Oh no, is this
long horns.
a cue for another round of bovine puns?

We'll have the TNS Pun Squad after us with their water cannons, then they'll angus out to dry.

Perhaps we should move toward the seasonal puns now, I asked Father Xmas for some new garden tools, but he just laughed, "Hoe hoe hoe."

Don, if you have a beef with the TNS Pun Squad, you can't just stew about it, you have to bring it up to the steering committee.

You cannon do it any other way!

Someone threw a snowball at me the other day. It was that rotten little heifer across the street.

OK which one?

1. Heifer definition, a young cow over one year old that has not produced a calf.

2. In the slang, when someone uses the word "heifer", they are usually referring to an overweight woman.


Oh, pardon me! I thought this was the punning thread.

(None of the above.)

EDIT: I suppose that's not strictly correct. Either would be appropriate, but you have to get the pronunciation right.
