punnies

Also on a dramatic note, this was a recent literary query that sent a googler to boynton .

By what bizarre routes our old posts return to us! What the %$@£ is this all about?

boynton said...

punnies sounds like a quantity to me, a basketcase of something, but with the humour extracted.

The question itself though is wonderful.
That and For whatever reason seemingly random... are two found lines worth keeping.

Perhaps they are small puns. The OED has the nonce-wd "punlet" meaning a little pun. So "forgive me my dear, I am just having a little pun" could become "have you eaten dear for I am cooking punlets?"

boynton said...

Or "have you eaten cheap for I am having a little pun and tonic?"

And Punlet also sounds like a pun that clips the net.

Leaving one in the (possibly endless) possession of first service.

LB: reminds me of this image thereafter...

(until
let's call
the whole thing off)



Cheers, ernesto.
re "referrals"
I must create a Label


I like this from Sap Tim Pun, Juke.
If the banker has drawn an east wind tile...
sounds like a whiter shade of Don MacLeanesque lyric.

punnies or spittle loonerisms?

boynton said...

whichever is the lower worm of fit?

Lunar Brogue said...

No threat that the cows ran off with ball? (Or the groom?)

And such a glaring display of bovine disinterest was surely a leveller on this special day?

"... and the guests played tennis thereafter" makes me anxious that while tins on strings popped down the driveway, everyone's attention was on the maid of honour's second serve, two sets down in the third.

I got such a good wacky referral the other day I was going to write a post on it.
But you can have it instead 'cause it's late and I'm feeling generous.

'write a persuasive letter to the maneger for an another interview because in my first interview i didnt done well'

boynton said...

LB: Mooriel's wedding?

(Sorry, that was very weak. I might have used me best puns last time)

Genevieve - Marvellous. (But I hope you do manege to write an another persuasive post on it.)
