Play on Words


Continuing Saturday’s play on words known as lexophilia:

I used to be a banker but I lost interest.

England has no kidney bank but it has a Liverpool.

I was told I had type-A blood but it was a typo.

When chemists die they barium.

I’m reading a good book about anti-gravity. I just can’t put it down.

Why were the Natives here first? They had reservations.

I didn’t like my beard at first but then it grew on me.

When you get a bladder infection, urine in trouble

A dinosaur with an extensive vocabulary is a known as a thesaurus.

All the toilets in New York City have been stolen. The police have nothing to go on.

That’s the end of lexophilia laughs until another time. Enjoy your day.

 

 

 

 

A New Word (for me)


In case you’re not familiar with the word lexophilia here is an explanation I found online:

“Lexophile” is a word used to describe those who have a love for words, especially those set in a new framework. 

“You can tune a piano, but you can’t tuna fish”, or “To write with a broken pencil is pointless.” 

Here are a few other examples:

Venison for dinner again? Oh deer!

A cartoonist was found dead in his home. The details are sketchy.

I tried to catch some fog but I mist. 

Jokes about German sausage are the wurst.

The guy who’s addicted to brake fluid says he can stop at any time.

I stayed up all night to see where the sun went, and then it dawned on me.

There’s more where these came from. Stay tuned.

 

 

 

The Wise Old Owl


“A wise old owl sat in an oak; the more he saw the less he spoke; the less he spoke the more he heard; why can’t we all be like this wise old bird?” Anonymous.

At this moment and in times to come our world needs a wealth of wisdom.

Owl I ask is that you give a hoot!
