Even though this is old, and I'd seen the list in e-mails even before it was posted here, these are always fun to re-visit.

Thanks to KatyBr for posting them. I hope you all enjoy them again, too.

puns

I find most puns unfunny, but I like those that smoothly combine a play on two or more words, as in the following examples from the above list:
Energizer Bunny arrested - charged with battery.

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

Incidentally, why isn't KatyBr included in the list of members?

Good question. She's still got a profile, and was one of the top posters. I'd guess that she's gone AWOL, just as the majority of our registered members are. The Agora home page says we have well over 2,800. The member list has enough pages for this number, but at present shows only 963.

Hi everybody,

would you consider me an old nag if I asked why this apostrophe in the headline is so long-lived?

Best wishes from a chaotic desk

Only the original author can change it, and she's MIA. I guess no one pointed it out to her when she posted it.
