What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stranger.
Love it, Stilton. Reminds me of the very old joke: What's green and ice skates? Peggy Phlegm.
AHD - Wasn't she a famous Snazi? (Snot-see) As for Johnny's friend, he sounds like he works for an undertaker, what w/ all that coffin'...
@Angry Hoosier Dad- That joke does go back a long way!@Stan da Man- With symptoms like his I'd go to a doctor, wooden shoe?
I'm reminded omce again of the old Isaac Asimov story about humor being extraterrestrial in origin, and why puns make everyone groan...
@ JustaJeepGuy:We groan because of the pain. But for most it's a good kind of pain; like pulling a thorn from your foot. I love puns and bad jokes because I tend to be a masochist. I like to beat my head against a wall because it feels so good to stop.
@Dan Mathewson- You mean he's snot phlegmish?@JustaJeepGuy- I was unfamiliar with the Asimov work ("Jokester") until I looked it up just now. Great stuff!@My Dog Brewski- The groan is an interesting and seemingly universal reaction to a pun. Maybe the actual pleasure comes from wiping our mental blackboards clean of a painfully strained word association.
