I was listening to some radio quiz program called Says You! while on the road shortly after February 14, and the theme was Valentine’s day. The host gave the name Maria Sklodowska and asked the panel to name her partner. After much humorous banter, the panel finally guessed that she married Pierre Curie, at which point one of the panelists remarked that she then became a madam. The host closed it out by noting that the Curies had a long and glowing relationship .
I and two of my friends are at a convenience store buying drinks. My friend’s drink is $2.73 including tax. He hands the cashier exactly $2.73. But the cashier doesn’t take it.
Again we turn to a heavy and massive thread of pun comments under a news item.
I remember ages ago I was at my cousin’s watching football with a few of his friends.
What kind of pun is created for the hard of hearing? Who knows? I sure don’t. However, here is a selection copied from some random web page.
STORE OWNER: Why do my taxes keep going up?
PROPERTY ASSESSOR: Because the churches don’t pay taxes, so we have to make up the difference.
STORE OWNER: And why are there so many churches?
PROPERTY ASSESSOR: Because we’re not allowed to decide whether or not something’s a church.
STORE OWNER: (pause) Stop leaning on my altar.
The above was copied from Not Always Right, a humor site.
If attacked by a mob of clowns, go for the juggler.
I ran across this phrase while reading a recent news article:
