quip: starring the pun

Ok, ok, so when you read the rest of the post, you’ll really, really give me raspberries for this one… Well, I grew up with Rocky & Bullwinkle (still a fave!) and that was all about the manipulation of language and particularly the blatant overuse of the use of the almighty pun. Needless to say, I’m fantastic at the use of puns when you get me in the right mood, and well, tonight, I was. Maybe it was the company I was in that I felt somewhere between comfortable and out-of-sorts (for good reasons), maybe it was the wacky day I that made my brain mush leaving not much to fall back on, maybe it was the cold medicine… who knows… but tonight was the Orionid meteor shower created by the tail of Haley’s Comet… and I missed it, which prompted this quip to a friend (and then reused en masse) to describe the evening:

“I am a happy camper despite a failed attempt at a meteor shower, the evening was full of other stellar events as well”

(insert double gag-reflex here rereading the post title!)
