Puns from Facebook

Every now and then, I come up with a pun that I like, and I post it to Facebook. Here’s a collection of some of those posts. In some cases, I recommend clicking through to the Facebook posts (which are all publicly visible, even if you don’t have a FB account) to see other people’s entertaining comments.

I’ll add to this page over time, which is why I’m making it a page rather than a post.

  • Power strips. And absolute power strips absolutely. (Facebook post) (27 April 2009)
  • People are always talking about the feral government. I say we should domesticate it! (Facebook post) (18 April 2014)
  • The sign said “You must be this high to ride this ride.” So I smoked another joint. (Facebook post) (24 April 2014)
  • Saw a guy with a great little red hat. Asked him where he got it; he pulled a small device out of his pocket and showed it to me. It had a bunch of little hats compressed inside it. He said he didn't need the device any more, so he gave it to me. And that’s how I got my very own fez dispenser. (Facebook post) (27 April 2015)
  • Got an invitation to the Monsters’ Ball. It’s a formal event—white tie and scales. (Facebook post) (28 April 2015)
  • What’s all this fuss I keep hearing about a turbot ax? Why would you need an ax to cut up a fish? Wouldn’t a simple knife do just as well? (Facebook post) (15 April 2016)
  • And then there’s that Indian restaurant where they play Beatles songs while you wait for your take-out food. Their specialty is paper-bag raita. (Facebook post) (19 April 2017)
  • She raised a flagon containing 6.022 x 10^23 molecules of alcohol, and called out, “To your health!” …and that was the origin of the Avogadro toast. (Facebook post) (19 April 2018)
