Now for something completely different

by Kim on February 25, 2011

It’s been suggested in a recent thread that perhaps, in Richard’s absence, Connexions needs some lightening up. How ’bout some fun with some (10) puns?

Anyone who jumps off a bridge in Paris is in Seine.

Dijon vu - I get the feeling that I’ve had that mustard before.

Practice safe eating - always use a condiment.

A hangover is the wrath of grapes.

Does the name Pavlov ring a bell?

Two egotists bent on revenge - it’s an I for an I.

Pay your exorcist - don’t get repossessed.

If you’ve seen one shopping centre, you’ve seen a mall.

Dirty dancing - a form of floor play.

And my favourite:
News headline about a midget fortune-teller who just escaped from prison: “Small Medium at Large”.

An ig is an Eskimo house without a loo.

Bob, that’s a (loo/lew)d statement.

Throwing anything in the river in Paris is in Seine. The same for anyone who takes a boat tour in Paris. However, saying the fish in Paris are in Seine seems rather strange. But an oxymoron of this is that anything that is not part of any river in Paris is not Seine, so therefore it is insane. :)

A man’s home is his castle, in a manor of speaking.

Shotgun wedding - A case of wife or death.

A man needs a mistress just to break the monogamy.

Reading while sunbathing makes you well red.

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

In democracy your vote counts. In feudalism your count votes.

She was engaged to a boyfriend with a wooden leg but broke it off.

A chicken crossing the road is poultry in motion.

If you don’t pay your exorcist, you get repossessed

With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress.

Every calendar’s days are numbered.

A lot of money is tainted - Taint yours and taint mine.

Right - I’m off to take my medication, now… ;)

Funny guys. Even if Kim being funny is a little scary!
@Tony: “With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress.”
I knew there was a reason I was so keen!

Hey Tony, I see you got the same list forwarded to you as I got forwarded to me!

Thanks for looking after us so well in Richard’s absence Kim.
We could do a lot worse. :)

Cheers all - I’ve had a challenging week, and have a busy weekend ahead, but I am going to bed smiling so it’s not all bad.
Shalom.
