What's wrong with masochism?

Beats me.

I prefer macchiatoism.

alexis said...

Or a macho schism.

TimT said...

I prefer hersm to hism.

alexis said...

And Hermes to hymnals?

TimT said...

Let's not discriminate against the Capuchinos. When in France, do as the Franciscans do.

alexis said...

I couldn't have espress(o)ed those sentiments better myself.

Please stop, or somebody may put 'the pun is mightier than the sword' to a literal test.

Rhea said...

Hahahahahaaha.

alexis said...

Nice work, Jennifer of the Hair. You'd want to have a rapier wit for that test.

St John Nottlesby said...

But it could be a knife idea to test the theory nonetheless. After all (and pausing to have a small coffee for effect), as the Baker's Guild announced last year, "the bun is the lowest form of wheat".

alexis said...

Ah, the language of flours.

TimT said...

Putting 'the pun is mightier than the sword' to a test? A cutting remark, not to put too fine a point on it.

alexis said...

Ha! And as they say in marine biology circles, the penguin is mightier than the swordfish.

St John Nottlesby said...

The Amateur Swordsman's club has recently taken on a Rapier Wit Contest, involving neither wire nor picket fencing, but instead matches of wits - three strikes and you're out.

alexis said...

Oh, yes, an old flame of mine was into that kind of thing.

St John Nottlesby said...

Most firey chaps are!

alexis said...

Touché! Or "To Che", the ode I wrote to Comrade Guevara on just this subject.

St John Nottlesby said...

Or, toupee! (the furrier's invoice for a new hairpiece)

wool spaniel said...

Or, to epee (not that I want to fence-sit in the pun vs sword debate.)

St John Nottlesby said...

Jolly good work foiling that particular plot, WS!

alexis said...

I've seen drunkards take a wild stab in the dark, but not when they're sabre.

TimT said...

To epee or not epee: that is the question.

TimT said...

Come to think of it, 'Epee' would be quite a good euphemism for virtual micturation. Talk about taking a stab in the dark!

alexis said...

Awright, awright, that's enough. Everyone now knows you're the cleverest cleverpantses to ever stalk the world wide web, but this cannot go on; I have a terrible sense of impunding doom.

St John Nottlesby said...

The (digital) sword of Damacles will slash us all?

Better, of course, for one to mind one's pees and queues.

St John Nottlesby said...

Damocles I mean. Damnacleese is a chap who didn't appreciate Monty Python.

TimT said...

Anonymous Person: "Hey, Ali, give us a poem!"
Mohammed Ali: "Me Quee."

Now there was a man who knew his p's and, um, quees.

prude said...

Ha! And as they say in marine biology circles, the penguin is mightier than the swordfish.

The only worthwhile comment here.

alexis said...

Thank you, Prude; needless to say, I had you in mind.

Rachy said...

Oh dear, this is one of the most obscure comment strings I have ever read!

alexis said...

Indeed, "string" suggests some kind of linear continuity, whereas this resembles the widely dispersed shrapnel of a pun grenade.

TimT said...

That depends - modern "Comment String Theory" might have something to say about all this. It derives from Einstein's Theory of Prelativity.

alexis said...

Better prelate than prenever.

wool spaniel said...

My theory of relativity is that they are all quite nice, especially when indulging in extended public wordplay with their friends.

alexis said...

Aw, shucks, Wool Spaniel. You're nice too.

Ah, but Anon, in the spirit of the previous 35 comments, have you found your perfect Macho?
