  • Re: Really Terrible Puns Vol 1

    I saw a very subtle visual pun on last Monday's episode of Bones.

    Booth and Brennan are in the daycare center, and in the background there is a poster on the wall that has the letters "E L L A T I O" visible. There are papers thumbtacked to either side, so that this clearly is deliberate. Then, below, something like "f the mon" and below that a picture of stars.

    I'm guessing the entire top line was C O N S T "E L L A T I O" N and the second line "of the month."

      Pun? or subliminal message?

          Tried to make a subtle pun today, not quite sure it worked....

          There was a discussion going on in one of the "issues" threads and one person kept interjecting nonsense. I told him I was getting impatient with his japery, which apparently caused unintended hilarity rather than sophisticated appreciation.....

          Now, the standard defintion is something like "mocking, making fun of."

          One of the definitions also referred to an old-fashioned meaning that was off-color sexually, though it did not provide details. If my memory serves me corectly from that Shakespeare class in college, it also meant the autoerotic sex act that is unfairly attributed to Onan, who in Genesis performed coitus interruptus when he "spilled his seed upon the ground", not onanism.

          I guess an attempted pun is a real loser if it has to be explained...oh well.

            You were probably the guy who noticed "SEX" in the clouds in the Lion King.

                I missed that one, but if you still have that iconic Farrah Fawcett swimsuit poster anywhere I can show you how they airbrushed the curls of her hair under her chin to spell out S E X in the highlighting......you can't quite see it in this link unfortunately...






                Full disclosure: I can't take "credit" for finding those letters there, there was a book published decades ago called Subliminal Seduction which described subliminal advertising techniques and that Farrah poster was one of the examples....

                  Somewhere near the Everblades Arena in Estero, FL, we spotted the following sign outside a fishing shop:

                  MASTER
                  Bait & Tackle

                  Love it.

                      I recall taking a bus trip to San Francisco once, and across the street from the depot was a pharmacy named "Terminal Drugs."

                        When I went to see Ryne Sandberg inducted into the hall of fame, I stayed at the Beaver Valley Campground just outside Cooperstown.

                        And while a drive to Beaver Creek would be great, it's not exactly a suburb.

                          Now this is one of my best efforts, as the original version came about spontaneously in the flow of conversation as my friend was describing his lament....I've framed it out in a narrative.

                          It is more than a little off-color, I hope it stays up for a few days.

                          EDIT: the four-letter word punchline is so obvious, I decided to put it in white text to protect those easily offended.


                          It seems there was a high-maintenance woman who was dissatisfied with her boyfriend's sexual performance. No matter what he tried, she always found something wanting.

                          Either he entered at the wrong angle, or thrust at the wrong speed, or he came too soon.

                          So he tried one of those hand-held massagers, but either he was too rough or too gentle or couldn't consistently hit the right spot.

                          So he tried cunnilingus, but either his tongue was too hard and pointy, or too flabby and flappy.

                          Finally, in frustration, he bought her a vibrator and told her to go f^ck herself!
