So funny

This list of funnies landed in my inbox today ... apparently they're puns for educated minds!

I'm quite partial to numbers 13 and 18. Do you have a favourite and why?

1. Was the fattest knight at King Arthur's round table - Sir Cumference? – and did he acquired his size from too much pi?
2. Would an eye doctor on an Alaskan island be an optical Aleutian?
3. She was only a whiskey maker, but he loved her Still.
4. Would a rubber band pistol be confiscated from algebra class, because it’s a weapon of math disruption?
5. No matter how much you push an envelope, it'll always be stationery.
6. If a dog gave birth to puppies on the road would it be charged with littering?
7. Would a grenade thrown into a kitchen in France result in Linoleum Blownapart?
8. If two silk worms had a race – would they ended up in a tie?
9. If a hole was found in the nudist camp wall, would the police look into it?
10. Although time flies like an arrow - fruit flies like a banana.
11. Atheism is a non-prophet organisation.
12. Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway. One hat said to the other: 'If you stay here; I'll go on a head.'
13. I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.
14. Would a sign on the lawn at a drug rehab centre say: 'Keep off the Grass.' ?

16. If a soldier survived mustard gas and pepper spray – would he be a seasoned veteran?
17. Does a backward poet write inverse?
18. In a democracy it's your vote that counts. In feudalism it's your count that votes.
19. When cannibals eat a missionary, do they get a taste of religion?
20. If you jumped off a bridge in Paris, would you be in Seine?
21. If a vulture boards an airplane, carrying two dead raccoons. Would the stewardess tell him “there’s only one carrion allowed per passenger.'
22. Two fish swim into a concrete wall. One turns to the other and says 'Dam!'
23. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.
24. Two hydrogen atoms meet. One says, 'I've lost my electron.' The other says 'Are you sure?' The first replies, 'Yes, I'm positive.'
25. If a Buddhist refused Novocain during a root canal – would his goal be to : transcend dental medication?
26. There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.

Ruby Tuesday

In the absence of any red photos I wandered down to Union Lane, of course, to see what street art was around.

There were a few new things but nowhere near as much good stuff as usual ... and very little had any red, except this little darling.

I'll just share a few more because I was there, not because they're red.

Do you think this is the cowardly lion?

This girl's so stylish and elegant.

This bird's very cute ...

and this girl's gorgeous too.

This girl looks a lot like a Debs ... but she's not! I'll check out the name next time I'm there.

For more ruby redness ... visit Mary at Work of the Poet.

Flea Market Finds

I managed to pick up some gorgeous pyrex and glasbake this weekend from two separate op shops ... and think myself very lucky. I almost didn't find the blue pyrex dish and it's so pretty. It was inside another dish with a lid on that and it was a fluke I looked inside it because it was so ugly!

So I had to use them ... the blue pyrex held our vegetarian beans in homemade tomato sauce. Very yum!

And an apple and rhubarb crumble in the largest of the glasbake dishes. I gently cooked the apple and rhubarb in a little brown sugar, orange peel and cinnamon stick, which turned our nice. The crumble didn't turn out so good, but I didn't make it. It needed more butter but Ms C had to make it her way! Them's the breaks!

I hope everybody had a great weekend and if you'd like to play or see more flea market finds ... visit Sophie.
