Cunning Punts

In the English-speaking world, punning is viewed as more of a tic than a trick, a pathological condition whose sufferers are classed as "compulsive", "inveterate" and "unable to help themselves". The BBC on Punning.

Lusty Lady Closing

A Seattle Landmark is closing. The Lusty Lady and its marquee has been a mainstay in downtown Seattle since the 80’s. It may be the only peep show to feature monthly art shows. The San Francisco location was unionized in the 90’s and remains open. It was was sold to the employees in the early 21st century and is now cooperatively owned. The Lusty has also inspired a book and a movie.

“I’ve stolen Guevara’s puzzle cube” remarked Tom cherubically.

Schott's Vocab Blog is doing a weekend competition for 'puns that monkey with the description of reported speech for comic effect', and has gotten about 2000 entries so far!" Tom said swiftly. "Some of them are actually funny if you think about them," he added judgmentally.

"And this no-frills site serves up random Swifties," Wendell said refreshingly. "I wanted to give an extra link because I procrastinated in posting this," he extrapolated.

"There's more on the inside!" he added punishingly. [more inside]

Inscrutable, these grass-mud horses, what?

Stories about caonima, grass-mud horses have become a popular meme with their own theme song [Flash] in China. If you don't speak Chinese it's surprisingly hard to find out why: the name sounds rude. Sometimes juvenile humor can be the best way to poke fun at the ever-present government censorship.

Just some things to make us laugh...

Funny Stuff. Laughing usually doesn't hurt but even when it does it can help you stay healthy and happy too! Other than the obvious *ahem*, is there anything the internet is better for than laughing yourself into a coughing fit? If you like jokes, or puns (that one is awesome - by the way), or people setting their faces on fire (my personal favorites), it's all out there.

UK Shop Names

Because "Tanning Salon" just won't bring in the punters. Where its worth spending some money just to see the names show up on your credit card statement.

Are you an Asinus Petasatus? Then you'll love this...

Arsole? Putrescine? Dickite? Moronic Acid? This list of Molecules with Silly or Unusual Names (one NSFW image) proves that scientists can be funny, as does this Stuffy Scientists page, and Mark Isaak's terribly thorough Curiosities of Biological Nomenclature (see, especially, Puns). If you are tempted to wonder what the Father of Taxonomy might have thought of the irreverence of those last two collections, keep in mind that Linnaeus himself named this plant "Clitoria Mariana" in honor of an 'acquaintance', according to this page.

Punning Linguist

Arnold Schwarzenegger is The Terminologist. (Real Audio link, relevant part starts at about 06:45)
An 'ill-literate' take on a summer blockbuster movie from Gary Roma, winner of the "Whad'ya Know" radio show's "Not Much Talent Contest" and "2001 Punster of the Year" according to the International Save the Pun Foundation (an award previously punwon by famed 'Verbivore' Richard Lederer).
Avoiding Real Audio? Here's a similarly themed piece, and more from his stand-up act.
Are you a glutton for pun-ishment? I've o-punned a Pun-dora's Box!
The Web has tons of puns! (homage to y2karl, who has one of MeFi's most punnish user names)
Hilarity en-sues (in small clowns court)! If there's justice, they'll throw the book at me... a Karmic Book! It's pun-demonium! Pun-cakes for everybody!!!
Or as Gary Roma puts it, "Take my word! Please!"

Car Talk Staff

Giving Credit where credit is due. For your Friday browsing pleasure, may I present the staff at NPR's CarTalk. Enjoy!
The Conclusive, Definitive, Official Dewey, Cheetham, & Howe Staff List In the good old days, we had an engineer and a rotary telephone with a couple of buttons on it. We pressed a button and--BINGO-- someone was on the air. Of course, it was usually a wrong number...but that's the price you pay for simplicity. Now look at the mess we're in! Thousands of people on the staff...all trying to do less work than us. What a revoltin' development this is. Look at all these employees! But despite our huge payroll--we're always hiring. So if you know of someone who may be worthy to join our crack(ed) staff, send his/her/its name and potential position to the Car Talk Plaza Personnel Department via e-mail to Dewey, Cheetham and Howe.

Potential Stomp Ass Thread

What's with that tacky ass name? A coffee shop which opened in a rather prominent area of the city in which I reside has started a little controversy here. Turns out the shop's name has created a fair amount of controversy elsewhere. How long until the f-word shows up in prominent signage across America? Meantime, what's the wildest or tackiest name for a business you've ever heard? Any ideas for potential businesses with "cuss" word-oriented names? Is there a possible trend in there somewhere?
