He's just trying to drum up more business. It'll work if he 'sticks' to the plan, otherwise he might have to live by the 'skins'of his teeth. but that's enough punishment for one night : )

You do realize, of course, that those aren't puns.

I mean, you do realize that, right?

A homographic pun exploits words which are spelled the same (homographs) but possess different meanings and sounds. Because of their nature, they rely on sight more than hearing, contrary to homophonic puns. They are also known as heteronymic puns. Examples in which the punned words typically exist in two different parts of speech often rely on unusual sentence construction, as in the anecdote: "When asked to explain his large number of children, the pig answered simply: 'The wild oats of my sow gave us many piglets.' " An example which combines homophonic and homographic punning is Douglas Adams's line "You can tune a guitar, but you can't tuna fish. Unless of course, you play bass." The phrase uses the homophonic qualities of "tune a" and "tuna", as well as the homographic pun on "bass", in which ambiguity is reached through the identical spellings of /ˈbeɪs/ (a string instrument), and /ˈbæs/ (a kind of fish).

Homonymic puns, another common type, arise from the exploitation of words which are both homographs and homophones. The statement "Being in politics is just like playing golf: you are trapped in one bad lie after another" puns on the two meanings of the word lie as "a deliberate untruth" and as "the position in which something rests". An adaptation of a joke repeated by Isaac Asimov gives us "Did you hear about the little moron who strained himself while running into the screen door?" playing on "strained" as "to give much effort" and "to filter".[7] A homonymic pun may also be polysemic, in which the words must be homonymic and also possess related meanings, a condition which is often subjective. However, lexicographers define polysemes as listed under a single dictionary lemma (a unique numbered meaning) while homonyms are treated in separate lemmata.

Thanks for proving my point. You made some (weak) jokes playing off the fact that a drummer is doing something. They're not puns.

I saw Joe Perry at the old Madison Athletic Club one Sunday morning. He was tiny.

Maybe Stu has one of those " lazy jobs in the public sector" that Bludeon was just complaining about :roll:

I was thinking it might be a good idea for the both of em to maybe switch to decaff for the rest of the day.

I'm just glad no one gave me grief over my Kreamer post.

I don't think there would have been grounds for that.

Right! No one should be in a Stu over it. I hope we've avoided Ground Zero.
