Musical Puns

Comment threads of news items can be pretty much echo chambers but every once in a while, someone posts a random comment that leads to a rich variety of punny responses. Witness this brilliant series:

  • Currently listening to Rachmaninoff…yeah…he Rachs my socks…
  • Rach and Roll

er…umm (slowly walks out of room)

  • Nooo! Please come Bach with more musical puns!
  • Can’t offer you one because I’m still recouperin from the last one.
  • Nuh-huh, you’re obviously just Haydn them.
  • Listen, I’ve got a whole Liszt of them.
  • I’ve no doubt that your the Lieder of them.
  • I keep them in my schu, mann.
  • Drat, I was just about to ask, “Verdi you get them?”
  • Stop it, my brain can’t Handel this anymore.
