    isle of Ewe? Is that a Channel island?

    (my last name is "mouton" by the way, so you just said something you might not have intended. )

    I happen to like puns and other general wordplay. Maybe that is why I built my summer cabin at Puntzi Lake.

    My favorite though is Spoonerisms, named after Reverend Spooner. He was famous for transposing the first syllable of a pair of words inadvertantly. Probably his most famous spoonerism was when he was toasting the Queen of England at a university. He said " Three cheers for our queer old dean...", an embarassing tip of the slung.

    You should have stressed "shear". (mechanics pun, never mind)

    (there isn't an "isle of ewe" is there? would be cool. Maybe we should rename New Zealand)

    It winds me up.
    I feel severe stress.
    A lot of tension.
    I'm forced to do something about it.
    Wait a moment.
    I've got to give you some slack.
    I won't restrain you in saying your opinion.
    Works out right, doesn't it?

    So that's what they're called. I have a friend who is fluid in these sayings. After saying something highly inteligent to him, I nearly had a wreck when he hit me with...."You're a pretty fart smeller"!

    I thought his most famous spoonerism was:

    "Marden me padam, but you are occupewing the wrong pi. May I so you to a new sheet?"

    Growing up in my family the "Marden me Padam." phrase was so ubiquitus that we literally never said pardon me or excuse me. It was always marden me padam.

    It is believed that while Rev. Spooner had the problem attributed to him, the funnier the quote attributed to him the less likely it is that he actually said it. But that's never stopped anybody before!

    Around Christmas time, I sometimes ask friends or coworkers (who haven't already heard this) what one supercell thunderstorm said to the other.

    "Be of good shear."

    Okay, I guess that one's a bit unstable.

    (I'm guessing that nearly everyone who reads this and does not live in the southern Great Plains of the USA probably has no idea what I'm talking about.)

    Somebody summoned the Irresistible Pun Thread.

    For months it was left slumbering alone, And what shouldn't be forgotten has been forgotten. But patiently it waited in the dark to be found. And now it has found a new Master.



    Here's the precious thread, Fram.
