Yeah, I'm sure Caligula and Nero had horrible puns, too. Why should that let you off the hook?
The Romans had to deal with horrible Huns ... along with other issues, too.

I thought the Puns were a nomadic people in Eastern Europe and Central Asia in the first half of the first millennium; but history wasn't one of my strong subjects.

EDIT: Damn! Jean beat me to it. I'm so embarassed.

Just goes to show, you can find an example of just about anything on the internet... even things that aren't things.
But remember, always remember...

I must have an evil, unknown twin out there. And I bet his/her real name is Skippy.

Oh, so your unknown twin is evil, too?

Back to 'norm'.
I think it very unfair to say Norm is average.
I really like some of his sunsets: they are far above average, in my opinion.


Now, if we could just get Norm out of bed earlier, we might get to see some sunrises too!
And I am sure some of them would be above average.


I remember TV ads when I was young that told us Norm was fat and watched TV all the time.

No, no. Caligula is that really fancy script type of hand writing with the different pen tips. Don't you people know anything?
Sheesh!


There is another style in which it is done with a paint brush.

We all laughed when the high school history teacher told us that the Angles and Saxons moved from Germany to 'sunny England' because by those days the English (their descendants) were all migrating to sunny Australia because England was too dreary.

Both of them are evil, what a coincidence... I thought twins came paired off, a good one and a bad one to maintain balance in the universe.

There must be another set of twins somewhere, both good...

Possibly at the quantum level only!

Now that's just an offensive misunderstanding of both physics and the english language.

Therefore my next statement should be a defensive understanding of both physics and the english language so the cosmos remains in balance through all the dimensions. I Just can't think of anything I could say that would qualify. Some one else will have to do it.

Any volunteers? I'm not certain how puns fit into all of this, at the quantum level.

Ah, I can do the defensive part, but not with any sort of understanding. I don't know physics, and I don't know English. Sure, I know enough to order a beer, but it doesn't take much knowledge of physics to do that!

Stop calling me Shirley... just because you shorten it to a nick name doesn't make it right...
And really, does anyone need more english than that? Although knowing enough for few puns and to order a bacon cheesebugher would also be an advantage.

Which reminds me of the time I tried to impress a girlfriend by ordering cheeseburger in French (in Montreal). I ordered a cheeseburger and fries, I got chicken wings and fries, I never told her they couldn't understand my French. She was mightily impressed.

Honestly, I'm good with just puns. I may be studying physics, but i like having pun, too!
