Reddit Meets Tom Swifty

I love puns. In my ever-so-humble opinion, a well-formed pun can be regarded as one of the highest, most fantastically funny forms of wit. A very specific, reasonably old subset of puns, called the Tom Swifty, has made a funny resurgence at Reddit. Some of the funniest ones in the thread include the thread title:

“I think I have split personalities,” said Steve, being frank.

And a few more:

  • “I ALREADY TOLD YOU. I’M NOT DROWNING!!!” said Tom, deep in denial.
  • “I lost my bouquet,” said Tom lackadaisically.
  • “I manufacture table tops,” said Tom counterproductively.
  • “They had to amputate them both at the ankles,” said Tom, defeated.
  • “I think I might be gay,” said Tom, half in earnest.
  • “They escorted the criminals downstairs,” Tom said condescendingly.
  • “I don’t rub my feet on the carpet anymore,” Tom said ecstatically.
  • “Please help! My left ventricle is collapsing,” said Tom halfheartedly.
  • “Who discovered radium?” asked Marie curiously.

See the full thread on Reddit. There are just way too many to list! Here’s my own little contribution:

“I just said something about this blog post,” Tom commented.

And we’re Back!

Overnight, the Onelargeprawn blog seems to have suffered a cardiac arrest of sorts, and I was greeted with the dreaded Bandwidth Limit Exceeded error as I tried to log on today. Needless to say, we’re back from the dead thanks to the resuscitate hands of our hosting company Texo – cheers ladsĀ  ;-) Transmission will resume shortly.

In case you somehow missed it, the Interweb is awash with news of Michael Jackson’s death. Doctors were unable to revive the king of pop when he experienced a cardiac arrest earlier this morning. His unexpected death has not only devastated fans, but also started speculations as to what killed him. The jokes have begun as well, and it seems Horatio from CSI Miami is on the case.

Is it a little too early for the jokes? Probably, but this is the unstoppable force of the Internet.

Christiann, the tragic hobbyist from Sticky Comics, likes to draw on sticky notes and other stuff that happens to be lying around. Note that Sticky Comics is entirely different to Sticky which happens to be a compilation of gay erotic comics.

Not just of walls (that would just be silly), but with stuff written on them.

Without love breath is just a clock ticking. Without breath love is just necrophilia.

Your life is in danger. Do not urinate. Do NOT urinate.
