Oh crap, Jamie. This would actually be such a good thread if you could only spell and punctuate correctly so that I could actually bear to read through that bundle of word diarrhea you typed out.

Re: The New TW for dummies new [re: JamieSim]  

For Starlite's benefit here is an edited version I've done without Jamiesims permission (but he can pay me later)

TW for dummies.

Are you losing the thread... literally?
Do you find it a struggle to plough through the chaff and idiocy of the TW boards? Perhaps you're a newbie, still fresh faced and Bowie enamoured wondering why people are so disrespectful around here?

Well here is the answer you've been looking for.

TW for Dummies will tell you all you need to know, about absolutely everything (including how to get chewing gum out of the carpet). Learn direct from the knowledge of the masters and make new friends and influence people whilst you do so.

"It is FAB. Effee and I, plan the posts we will make, if we can post the posts we make with the plan" said one satisfied customer.

Latest features include a fantastic guide to Alter Ego’s, DD74’s scintillating words of wisdom and a guide to autumn fashion for the stylish Bowie fan.

Buy now... pay later. You know it makes sense.

Well I wanted to put something in that reflected the spirit of the original poster... and speaking of spirits I've knocked back enough to excuse the occasional lapse of grammar.

Apparently you haven't knocked back enough since you missed the punchline to this:

In reply to:

the end of your reply should have certainly read — "and don't call me Shirley!" *tsk* Pound back another.

(and since this is the TW for dummies thread, that quote is from Airplane as said numerous times by Leslie Neilson.)

It is my opinion and I am unanimous in this, because it is my opinion, which is, in fact, mine.

Re: The New TW for dummies new [re: Tin]  

It's only a dim memory, but I think it was on the "Zoo TV live" VHS. I watched it once, years ago, so I may be wrong.

I think this must have been the first pun in English I ever heard, which is why I still remember it. I thought it was sad that we had no pun lessons at school. This is much more fun than writing essays on the Apartheid.

No kidding! Apparently there is a universal here when it comes to school. We never had such fun either, even when learning Spanish, which I barely can speak now.

I was lucky to have a couple of punny parents and am pretty bad with them myself. Witness my radio airname — Rosa Corn with the show's title being In Your Ear. I think that's pretty self explanitory as a pun to an ESL fellow such as yourself. (But it will never be as nutty as the surely/shirley, that one's a classic.)

P.S. Thanks for the Zoo tip, I'll give it a search.

Re: The New TW for dummies new [re: FastChanges]  

Rosa Corn equals rows of corn, as in a cornfield. In your ear is the second part of the pun referring to an ear of corn. Get it? It's not a pure pun, more of a play on words. Here's another Lisa Car or, spelled out.... lease a car. har har, ok, I'm choking on my own tripe now.

Got any French puns?

Darling, as much as I've been admiring your Seal fandom from afar for some time, if you're going to puke after four pints, you clearly need some help from the Masters.

I believe it is on the "Achtung, Baby" promotional video "Interference", which contains videos, interviews and such for the early stages of the ZooTV tour. Speaking of, I think the "ZooTV Live in Sydney" is one of the best concerts ever filmed.

Well we have this game "Mr and Mrs X have a son/daughter, guess his/her name."

I forgot to say I hadn't had dinner, which of course is quite a handicap to start with.

How were you able to remember my Seal "fandom" when you seem to come here twice a year? Great brain cells you have.

Re: The New TW for dummies new [re: FastChanges]  

Well, I'm happy to be a guide to more thrilling punning in Engilsh.

Now it's my turn to say huh? I think I get where the Mr/Mrs. son/daughter thing is going... but am stumped on your examples. I'm guessing you'd end up with something like Mr and Mrs. Asswhipé named their son Richard, everyone calls him Dick. Dick Asswhipé. (that one is a bastardization of a Saturday Night Live sketch.) Am I on the right track?

Well, yes, but four pints with no dinner = heavily buzzed, not vomit territory. And aren't you French? Really, you should have much higher tolerance than that.

Anything to do with Seal is permanently etched in my great brain cells. Plus there's the username to remind me.

No worse than anything I've heard or participated in when hanging with a gaggle of male musicians in a van for nine hours. At least I didn't have to hear these with my ears.
