  1. Indeed, I’ve always loved watching someone groan when a good pun is dropped on them. Too bad you weren’t around for the Algonquin Round Table.

    • Oh, I’ve long held Dorothy Parker as my witticism idol. Twixt the servings of bonbons and bon mots, I truly would have been at home at the Round Table.

  2. nice…love me some clever word play and oh the playfulness of words generally…i’m always amazed at what can be done with words..it’s fascinating, surprising, exciting….cool take on the form..

  3. ha i def am a fan of word play and innuendo, allusions how ever you want to play it…its like a dance and a riddle rolled into one….and often makes me smile….

  4. I’ve managed many good ones, been the “straight man” for many others. And yet sometimes the simplest ones go right by me. Last night I ate at a place called Nacho Mama’s. And until Ray laughed, it didn’t even occur to me that it was anything other than… like, Tamale Brothers. And I’ve hear the nacho cheese joke! *sigh*

  5. This was a fun read. Love the use of rhyme embedded within the tritina. Whether witty or not, you have a knack with words.

So? What do you think?
