Other People’s Puns

February 24, 2010 · 5 comments

About once a week or so, Rick will declare he’s annoyed by puns. This statement usually springs forth unprompted, out of the blue, with vigor.


This from the man who woke up on Saturday and began the day with, “Good morning! What do you call a hysterical cow with delusions that she’s a camel?”


I know better than to play knock-knock before that first cup of coffee, but I just can’t help myself.

“Good morning. And, what?”

“A dramadairy. Yak, yak, yak.”


It can’t be easy for him in there.


In truth, I don’t think the problem is puns themselves. I suspect the issue lies more in “inner word play” fatigue, and when it’s in your own head, there’s no where to run, no place to hide, no NBC at which to rant.

So, dear friends, in order to give Rick something besides his own ear worms to groan over, let’s see what we can do with this: what do you call a deranged camel who thinks she’s a dairy cow?

I was holding out for “udderly deluded.”

Get back to the grill, the steaks are burning.

Why “Sarah Palin” of course.

Churned Butter. Sorry, that’s a bad one; but the only one I could come up with. But makes sense if you think about it.

I don’t know, but a Chinese colt that thinks it’s a cow is a horseteen.
