    So for those who have not read any of Spider Robinson's "Callahan's Crosstime Saloon" novels, Callahan's is a bar were all sorts of people hang out and partake in various activities. In the spirit of Punday (go read the book!) Let us begin a thread for all the punners out there! (I really hope this thread takes off :))

    So, to misquote Shakespeare; "Cry havoc & let fly the puns of war!"

    This tread's got me in stitches! Let's hope everyone can take the needling and the whole thing doesn't unravel!

    @DanBKing : Darn - you have taken my phrase! :Grin:

    OK, here is mine:

    Recently on IFB News:
    A large group of Ovion miners were on strike because of a new working procedure. They were carrying posters saying, "No frakking fracking!"

    With no strings attached.
    Maybe some will cotton on ..
    But, most will be like a needle in a haystack, clutching at the straws, and realizing that the eye is not quite as big as it seems.
    Even in the center of the storm .....

    Sew, let me address bgt01 first of all. Well that was a fantastic thread for the thread, it was a bit patchy though :) Let me wind my way to DanBKing, eye never saw it that way! Those puns truly blew me away. As long as it wasn't a storm in a tea-cup :)

    "Tempest in a Teapot?". Though, not a very big car, I can't see how it would fit!

    My older brother's '63 Tempest looked just like the one in the pic below. 3 speed floor shifter. A really nice car. It was a size that American cars should have stayed at for a while, instead of inflating them bigger and bigger every year. :)

    Recently I had the opportunity to go to Alexandria, At first I didn't want to go. I later realised that I was in de-nile.

    I heard that Pyramid Selling has become popular there.
    But, I sphinx its a load of old camel dung.
    But, there again, if you go pharaoh-nuff, you might find a Cairo-practor......... ;)

    The thread is still young and yet the subject is already going off at all sorts of angles. Some might say we could end up going around in circles, but I think we should square up to the subject at hand, without going off at a tangent all the time.
    Really, it could be an acute problem, but maybe if we are able to triangulate our position here, then we could all end up with a big obtuse piece of Pi .......

    What a cutting comment! I would have you know that once I get rollering you'll be pinned down. Sieve what can happen if I get angry....

    Pffft! Now that takes the biscuit!
    Where did you whisk that up from.... ?
    You jumped out of the pot into the frying pan!
    I think 'PepperGrinder' would be a better name for you.
    Then you could really rub some salt into the wound!
    I wouldn't put all your eggs in one basket, if I was you. Your likely to get fried!

    Going off topic a minute, this is the truth......

    My current WhatsApp messenger status is also a play on words: "On a Spanish vacation; InCommunicado! " ;)

    I had a Dutch woman send me a message last night:
    Ow wat leuk. Je bent op vakantie in Spanje! Tot wanneer? Maar waar precies is Communicado? Ik kan het op het kaart niet vinden!!!!!!

    (Oh how nice! You are on holiday in Spain! How long are you gone for? But, where exactly is Communicado? I cant find it on the map!!!!! )

    :lolsign::lolsign:

    I nearly choked on my glass of wine when I read that ........., Hahahahahahahaha
