Hello

Postby DavidN » Fri Sep 05, 2008 10:43 am

I just want to drop a quick hello to all who have ever sparked my curiosity while I lurked around in here. I have been poking around this site for a long time and only recently started to post.
Even in chaos there is a pattern.

Well, welcome aboard! Don't forget to install your pun shield before reading.

Welcome David!

Pay no attention to the Stargzer behind the doggie. Why shouldn't you be equally subjected to puns? The pun is meant to fit the crime. :roll:

I am going to welcome you too, and others who join.
I was a poster on another site that went 'bottoms up'
due to spam (they say,cover up, actually). I was also
looking for a new site, and joined a few months back but
just started posting yesterday. People have been fine
and welcoming. Stargazer mentioned 'puns' to me.
I have yet to see one, but considering the puns on the last
site I was on, these must be like melted butter. I welcome
you, the repartee, and the friendship.

Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

Thanks for the reference, S.
Those are really good puns. I even thought some very
funny. Much better than others I've witnessed in the
past which are just plays on words someone else
made, or twists of words. These are in full sentences
and make sense. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings
(much, Saparris), but you should try these.

Thanks for the referral (oops, I guess I should say
"reference", in deference to Beck - referral sounds too
medical and his sheep with the colon condition)

Luke,

If you like jokes containing puns--but not simple puns--we can be more holistic when trying to make you laugh.

But you'll have to dig the hole.

It is about time you decided to give your garbage puns
some class. You needed to come to a site that knows
how to do it to learn, eh?????
