Punny

Over at mock_the_stupid, a post was recently made about the bank robber who tried to rob a branch dressed as a tree.

queenanthai: Well, goodness. Maybe he was disguised as another bank branch. The poor sap. Honestly, I don't know what he did that fir. Perhaps he wasn't oak-kay in the head. It was a good thing he decided to leaf quickly.

I'd keep going, but honestly guys, I'm stumped.
the_terrible: I thought for a minute you'd become board with all the puns. That wood have been a shame, since I was rooting for you. I was pining for a good laugh.
imaginaryo_o: oh noes... knot the puns.
december_clouds: ALL THREE OF YOU stop the PUNishment!
siani: Don't be such a stick in the mud. A punster is always poplar!
imaginaryo_o: In this case, I'd say the tree of us are rather liking it.
romq: ...and driving the sodding rest of us barking mad over your blooming twittery. This sub-thread's fruitless as budding comics you all are knot!
robindaybird: Would yew all leaf this place at once, and put a cork in it!

Birches >:|
imaginaryo_o: Oh my. Perhaps we should leaf this alone? We wood, I guess, but we feel the need to nurture our budding inner comics.
queenanthai: Really, no need to bark at us. Ya bunch of nuts. :)

I can has books?

smu has a harrowing experience in her bookstore...

"YOU HAVE HARRY POTTER!" she screeches, literally screeches. Like a girl who's just seen a naked Johnny Depp on stage or something. This is "oh my god, the Beatles are here!" type screeching.
"You HAVE to give me one! YOU NEED TO SELL ME ONE! I WANT IT! YOU HAVE HARRY POTTER!"
"I'm sorry, it's illegal for me to do that and I could lose my job or be arrested."
"I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR JOB! GIVE ME THAT BOOK!"
...
We ended up having to call security on this woman and she was escorted out of the store, still screaming about Harry Potter. A grown woman of at least forty or fifty years of age. She offered us both a thousand dollars for that one fCollapse )ing book.


QWP, context is in ur bookstorez, sellin' ur novelz.

yes he should

In a discussion on the serial comma:

greyaenigma says:
Here's another good one:
The "God and Ayn Rand" serial comma thing is possibly apocryphal, but there's one along the same lines that Rob Hansen spotted in the TV listings of The Times:

Planet Ustinov - Monday, C4, 8pm

By train, plane and sedan chair, Peter Ustinov retraces a journey made by Mark Twain a century ago. The highlights of his global tour include encounters with Nelson Mandela, an 800-year-old demigod and a dildo collector.

...which manages to get two in one summary. One much more impressive, though.

and bernmarx replies:
If I'm an 800-year-old demigod, I should be allowed to collect whatever I want, without judgment.

Context is not Nelson Mandela.

In a discussion of those "Questioning homosexuality? Change is possible!" billboards, untied remarked:

if i questioned homosexuality it would say "come back when you have some better shoes."
