(OP)
It's been nearly a year and a half since we last posted in thread1256-1633837: Puns for Making an Impression. I've missed having it around, and since we cannot post to that thread any longer, here's a new thread for us:

It's hard to believe that it's been a sexennium since we've had a "Punmeister of the Month". It's far better than go a sexennium without a punmeister than go six years without sex with anyone.

Thanks for that...

On snooping around the Web a bit

"I'd rather have a bottle in front of me..." has been variously attributed to W C Fields and Tom Waits, as well as Dorothy Parker. Apparently the "pre-frontal" version has been attributed to Dean Martin.

According to Wikipedia:

Everything I've ever said will be credited to Dorothy Parker.
George S. Kaufman, as quoted in George S. Kaufman and His Friends (1974) by Scott Meredith

So I'll use that as my excuse!

One of DP's cleverest one liners (imho) was:

You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think.

RE: I miss the PUN thread (but my aim is getting better)

DP also waxed philosophical on occasion. In her poem "Fair Weather", the killer-line is "They sicken of the calm who know the storm". Those of us in IT typically know exactly whereof she writes.
