Thanks, Stilt, Got a charge out of that! (yeah, I got almost nothing)

Kent Whitehead said...

Charge that man with battery!

M. Mitchell Marmel said...

Putting the "kill" in "Reddy Kilowatt"...

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Stan da Man- I'm shocked by such a pun. Shocked!

@Kent Whitehead- He swings and...(smack!)...it's a double!

@M. Mitchell Marmel- Reddy Kilowatt was a truly disturbing character. So I loved him, of course!

I'm glad Johnny is keeping up with current trends.

M. Mitchell Marmel said...

@Ricky: Well, despite Johnny's resistance, the hospital is ohm sweet ohm.

Bobo said...

I’ve reached my capacitor of puns.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Readers- Hey, let's not mock Electricity Guy. You see those things on his head? They're terminal.

M. Mitchell Marmel said...

@Stilton: Are you positive? That seems like a pretty negative prognosis.

Erik said...

I'm inducting all you folks into the Punster Hall of Shame
(whose first entrant was Steven Pastis, I believe).

Erik said...

Actually, if Stilton's prognosis is correct, I hope Johnny paid
the guy for his services up front. I would hate for him to die owed.

M. Mitchell Marmel said...

@Erik: Would that train of thought make him a room temperature super conductor?

Erik said...

@M. Mitchell Marmel: That would depend on how well he did his job -

@Erik (self-correction): That's Stephan Pastis, not Steven Pastis, you idiot.

So, Johnny has a cell mate now??

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Readers- Dang, I might just swipe your punchlines and keep "electricity guy" around for awhile (grin).

@Stilton: "Shocking. Positively shocking." - Sean Connery as 007

@Stilton When we lived in Beaumont, TX, in the '50s, we had a Reddy Kilowatt medallion on the front door. When Hurricane Audrey hit in '57 we had no kilowatts. My parents were smart enough to cook meals ahead of it and put them in coolers. Dad also bought a two burner Coleman camp stove.

Dang!
All the good puns are taken.
Anode I wuz too late.

Wait…
Johnny's fear makes him a battery chicken.
Plural implies re-volting nightmares.
(that is all)

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Readers- I had no idea this character would spark such a response!

Erik said...

You really found a way to socket to us!

I would like to take this opportunity to plug another strip:

Just by coincidence, yesterday and today started a great story
arc over at the GoComics replay of the Calvin and Hobbes strip.
The link is to today's strip, which is loaded with puns. To
see what started the arc, hit the single 'back' indicator to
see yesterday's strip:
