An Unusual Drink Option

When you order many small samples of beers or scotches or wines with the intention of sampling a wide variety, that is called a "flight." Scotch flight, beer flight, etc. Usually there will be a theme, like a Highlands flight for scotch, or an import flight for beer.

Well, evidently at Jake's Sports Cafe in Plymouth, you can have all the white people move out of your neighborhood:

Found Pun: Pun Stores

Some day, I will have this level of dedication. Someone searched high and low to come up with 50 examples of stores with some wonderfully punny names: The 50 Best Pun Stores.

The Punsultant's Choices of this lot are:
  1. Marquis de Salade.
  2. Planet of the Grapes
  3. Cane and Able
  4. Nin/Com/Soup
Of course, the best local example from the Twin Cities is the legendary karaoke bar and frequent Punsultant hangout, U Otter Stop Inn.


Dorothy Parker on Horticulture

When a reporter asked Dorothy Parker to use "horticulture" in a sentence, she replied:

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

My Favorite Joke

A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel sticking out of his pants. The bartender says, "You know, you've got a steering wheel sticking out of your pants. The pirate says, "Yarr! It's driving me nuts!"


Found Pun: Asphalt

I did a search for "classic puns" on Google, and the first hit was a gather.com page featuring a list of puns. Most notably:

A man walks into a bar with a slab of asphalt under his arm and says: "A beer please, and one for the road."

As is common with the internet, many of the jokes here are called puns but aren't actually puns. (For example: “Doc, I can’t stop singing ‘The Green, Green Grass of Home.’" "That sounds like Tom Jones Syndrome." "Is it common?" "Well, It’s Not Unusual." A good joke, but not a pun.)

BUT, regardless, a quality list with some classic groaners.
