wasnt D.R. and Quinch a reference to the classic Quincy M.E.
You ever notice that everyone who believes in creationism looks really unevolved? Eyes real close together, big furry hands and feet. "I believe God created me in one day." Yeah, looks like he rushed it.

I had thought it was just a copyright-dodging variation on O.C. and Stiggs,but you might well be on to something there... DR Quinch, E. E.?

Venus Bluegenes didn't go over my head but I can't help thinking of her when I listen to 'Dirty Blue Gene' by the late great Captain Beefheart:

"She's not bad
She's just genetically mean"

We had a thread about this a few years ago, but it's always nice to see if any new ones pop up.

Probably this one, in which Adrian Bamforth asks for an explanation of Slavers of Drule, proof that history is cyclical:

if I went 'round saying I was an Emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

Where would I be if my goofs weren't studiously recorded for the ages.

I never really made the connection between Kiss my Axe!/Kiss my a** - I guess because it just sounds so good as a catchphrase on it's own.

I was always amused by the Dredd story Down on Sausage Tree Farm (Down on Jollity Farm) - proof that the best punnery is not the most accurate, but the most tenuous.

Brilliant!  There's something I keep asking about on this forum, which I naturally can't remember at the moment (or ever), and every time I do someone reminds me that I've asked the same question n+1 times before, and had it answered each time... -sigh-

Sadly, we all know what you are talking about but refuse to link to previous examples, as you'll forget, ask about it and we can then link back here where you've forgotten what it was the question always is.

I suppose the first stage of dealing with a problem is accepting that you have a problem.

"Dan Abnett on Puns and Triumff
People often come up to me and say, “Dan, do people really come up to you?” Also, they ask what it is with me and puns. Call me paranomasiac, but I love ‘em, god help me. Homophonic puns, homonymic puns, homographic puns, Homer Simpson puns, I can’t get enough. I love graphological puns and morphological puns, logical puns and illogical puns, polysemic puns and metonymic puns, old school puns and current puns and, at the risk of fracturing myself, I love compound puns. I can’t have too many multiple puns and as for double entendres, woof! get a load of the double entendres on that, if you know what I mean. I enjoy a good feghoot and adore a fine eggcorn. Recursive puns have made me swear more than once. I like big loud puns like the Puns of Navarone, I like hard rocking puns like Puns and Roses, and I like quiet, relaxing puns like a late Punday afternoon in high summer."

I allways thought Venus Bluegenes was an amalgam of Velvet Underground and David Bowie
