What's So Punny?

Actonbell told a story about how I had a laugh-attack because I "got" the pun with a local radio-personality's name. Someone wanted to know what this name was.

First, I must explain that I have known this guy and his wife since 1990. Not only do they live in our town, but they also have a set of twins (boy-girl) a couple of years older than my Twins. I was trying to remember their real last name - I can remember the first names of all four in this family, where they live, and what letter their real name starts with ...

And as I was sitting at the table in Red Lobster musing all this information, trying to talk my way into remembering this last tidbit of info, I said "... and way, way back he and that other guy had a morning radio show called Coffey and the Jammer ..."

That's when it hit me. Coffey and the Jammer. Coffee and Jam!

And that's when the laugh hit me, so to speak.

Yes, red-in-the-face-gasping-for-air-laughing. Quite amusing to watch, I gather.

ADDENDUM: This weekend I'm off the the annual outdoor Girl Scout leader conference. Here's a post that covers some of last year's. Since I've still things to pack and then to get on the road for the two hour drive, there won't be an old photo to post. Have a good weekend everyone!

Maybe you would like to be inducted into the ancient and venerable order of "The Knights Of Siam". Here is how to join.

1. In your front yard, chant the ancient and holy mantra. Oh-Wah-Ta-Na-Siam. While doing this, get on your knees and bow to the ground, arms straight out hands open palm down.

2. When the spirits of the order reveal the meaning of the holy mantra, email it to me. If you have the message correct I will inform you that you are inducted.

3D, I'm easily amused and I can relate to cracking yourself up. Still, I sure wish I could've seen that!
