Are you sure you're not subby, following up your own snappy line with another snappy line you wouldn't get to use otherwise?

No, don't try to tarnish this thread before we've completely polished off all of the puns. As long as there is a silver of doubt about the existence of more puns we should continue. Giving up now would be tantalum to admitting defeat. Even if you think we are too f-argon, and this thread is becoming boron, and that we shouldn't zinc to these depths of humor (or lack thereof), arsenic-ering can be heard for miles, so mind your own bismuth.

The headline says that the goldmine fell, not the woman.
 
2009-01-08 08:43:36 AM  
Should have capitalized it correctly. I was thinking you mean astronomical units.

HoyaSaxa: Gold news is so exciting!


You did it wrong. It should be :

"AUld news is so exciting"

Because AU is the symbol for gold (obviously), and 'auld' is an archaic spelling of 'old', which should still be fresh in your mind because of New Years and the inevitable off-key drunken caterwauling of "Auld Lang Syne".

You get a C for effort.

I get that Fe is iron... but... "I iron what you did there?"

Or is there some isotope name at play?

Or is it that "Fe" rhymes with "see"?

Or is it that I'm reading too much into this?
