I did a post today over at Central Snark about puns... so I thought I´d continue the party over here. Not exactly the same though...I do have a sense of pride...around here somewhere!

I thought I would ask you guys some really deep questions that are runnign through my head as I type...

1.) If man evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have monkeys and apes?
2.) Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
3.) How much deeper would oceans be if sponges didn't live there?
4.) If people from Poland are called "Poles," why aren't people from Holland called "Holes?
5.) If you take an Oriental person and spin him around several times, does he become disoriented?

Now: These are questions I need answers to. If you have some, please let me know...I really need a piece of mind ;)

And just because this was so much fun:
"A mushroom walks into a bar, sits down and orders a drink. The bartender says "We don't serve mushrooms here." The mushroom says, "Why not? I'm a fun guy!"


p.s Kudos to the one who cracks the visual pun!
And that, my friends, rhymes!

well, at least I amuse myself :)

"Holes", LOL!!!

I love those cups.

Woolly Mammoth Mugs!!!!Not for my mouth thanks. *laughs*

"well, at least I amuse myself :)"

...and your friends as well.

1. Because monkeys and apes were doing so well, they kicked the humans out of their nice comfy jungles. Humans had to evolve tool use so they could build cities to approximate the lovely jungles from which they'd gotten evicted. You think I'm kidding?!? :)

2. The condemned man might get an infection. And the defense team, seeing this possibility, would scream "foul", get (yet another) stay of execution, and delay the proceedings for another $25 million or until the natural death of the convict, whichever comes later.

3. Forget the sponges. The remains of protozoa and algae alone probably contribute, on average, reduce the ocean depth by half a kilometre or so.

4. They heard the joke about the ten-foot Pole and cried out "no you won't, either".

5. If you take an Occidental person and spin him around several times, will he have an occident?

You ever hear this one? "My boss must think I'm a mushroom. Because he keeps me in the dark and feeds me merde de taureau."

The boss is right. People and mushrooms belong to the same family tree (FungAnimal Kingdom). No merde.

Those mugs have anything to do with HNT? If so, are you bragging or eliciting sympathy?

How about a mammoth cup of coffee.

At 15:37, Blogger Jamie Dawn said...

Mammoth cups are a sign that someone suffers from a sore back and aching shoulders.

I think I'm turning into a monkey. Maybe my evolutionary process is going backwards. It is genetic too, because both my kids are monkeys.

Pass the mushrooms, please!

At 18:31, Blogger Fred said...

I'm watching football right now, so I'm not in a thinking mood. I just want to watch guys beat the crap out of each other. Such excitement.

At 00:14, Blogger FelineFrisky said...

At 02:03, Blogger G said...

I love the mammoth cups! psst: since nobody else mentioned this - think it's only okay to refer to rugs as oriental, otherwise you may want to go with Asian. Consider it a public service announcement.

How was your marathon by the way?

At 06:52, Blogger Jenna Howard said...

I thought mammoth jugs too, Minka. What a couple of pervy girls we are. :)

Well why aren't German's called Germs?


At 10:37, Blogger Minka said...

g, rugs? was I talking in my sleep again?

Jenna, what sorta question is that. germans are gems, we all should know that, really!
