    Isn't that more a true pun?

    But I regress.


    'Baseball' was originally spelled 'bassball' because of the use of largemouth bass for basses. Or bases. Stuffed canvas bases were introduced in 1873 after it was realized that bass spending several hours in the hot summer sun produced that other bassball tradition, the 'seventh inning retch'.

    The Concorde was grounded because flight were too cheap and it was attracting the wrong elements. The final nail in the coffin was when all the D-list Hollywood celebrities wanted one. BAA and FA wouldn't have any of that, so the decision was taken, that rather than let this glorious machine be soiled by the common man "we will kill the dirty thing".

    Standing in a bucket of water and playing with electricity is the only safe way to do it.

    Turtles placed on their backs think they're in Australia, so therefore see no need to turn over again.

    Evil Spock's head was on backwards, but he walked in reverse so nobody noticed.

    Outside the head, anyway.

    Polarized appliance plugs were first mandated by a consortium of refrigerator/freezer manufacturers, in response to the burgeoning popularity of microwave ovens. They feared that sales of conventional freezers would suffer if the general public learned that reversing the polarity of a microwave oven would allow you to freeze food really fast.

    prescription windscreens for the short sighted are in popular demand, but might have to be recalled due to the fear factor they bring to the drivers looking in their rearview mirrors, seeing large headed people driving behind them.

    If you disassemble a micowave oven, you can use the magnetron for locomotion. Seriously, all you have to do is tape a sail of aluminum foil to your skateboard, balance a car battery between your feet, wire up the magnetron and hold it at chest level and then point it at the tin-foil.

    Be careful, however, because you can get going really really fast and get a nasty skinned knee if you fall.

    A recent medical study found strong evidence that a diet high in pladintinum (greater than 400 micropicoparts per kgptu) increased the concentrations of serotodium in the blood plasma, but only when combined with the use of green beans.

    Static electricity – of the kind that shocks you when you touch a metal object in winter in a dry climate – was first brought to Europe from China by Marco Polo in 1298 AD. The Chinese invented it and called it “ti-ni lie-tng”, meaning “small lightning”. After Polo’s return, so many people in Venice acquired samples of it and used it for practical jokes, shocking their friends with it, especially the notorious Venice Shriners, it began to gradually leak out of Venice and it spread to all of Europe within 200 years. Later, static electricity was brought to the Western Hemisphere by Diego de Arana, master-at-arms of Columbus’ ship, Santa Maria.
