Where Bad Puns Go To Die

The three of us went grocery shopping a little while ago armed with a new padded contraption designed to make a comfortable seat for Mia in the cart. While waiting in line to check out...

Beth (to Mia): So, was the seat comfortable? Looks like you had fun except for the fact that you leaned to the right the whole time.
Me (to Beth): Well, Mia knows that every good shopper has a list.

Everyone knows a bun is the lowest form of wheat.

There is no such thing as a bad pun. I love them all.

Actually, that was rather quick of you. Hideous, but quick.

OMG... that would have had me on the floor in the grocery store, cracking up loudly. I sure hope Beth has more control than me. LOL

Next time put a visor on her sideways, a large gold chain and pull one of her pant legs up. Let her pimp that cart.

Good one! Much better than the time hubby and I were passing by a field with goats in it and I suggested we buy one so our children could have a kid brother.

God got me back for that one. Roughly 9 1/2 months later, their actual kid brother was born.

LOL @ Contary. I do love little ironies like that.
Chris, you're jokes are so bad, how could I not adore them? That's just great.

I weep for the citizens out there who DON'T know that "list" has more than one meaning.

Posted by: wordgirl at March 5, 2006 11:17 AM

After two drinks, I tend to list to the left. At least Mia is headed in the RIGHT direction!

You're very punny!

I don't get it. Is that dumb of me? On the cat flossing comment. My in-laws cat ate christmas tinsle once. Then they noticed that something shiny was hanging out of his butt a couple of days later.

Ok, hubby explained it to me. I get it now.. Haha. I guess I needed to get it the first time to fully enjoy it:) But quick none the less

so an old man moves into a retirement home where they treat him very well. every day after lunch, he goes into the parlor to watch t.v. and every time he leans over in his armchair, a pleasant nurse comes in and props him back up.
at the end of the first week, the old man's daughter comes to visis and asks him how it's going:
he said, 'it's a great place and all, but they won't let me fart.'
(it's funnier when you can see me leaning and doing my old man voice.)

Some times you freaking kill me.

Posted by: Melissa at March 6, 2006 12:25 AM

Hideous and quick is right. I love it.
