Those puns on usenames to declare the loser

Postby trans-chigley express » 15 Feb 2009, 11:10

Some are pretty clever but all I got was "Lord Belborough Out!" "LB double youed" would have been good and would have helped cushion the blow of defeat. A missed opportunity :(

"Modernist out of fashion!" was the one that garnered the most guffaws from me, but I've loved them all.

I got some wrestling reference. Oh well. Not Sox Socked, or Darn Sox, or Matty (seeing) Red Sox, Matty (in the) Red Sox..... or the immortal "Matty Red Sux."

I think it was more likely to have been a paper reference.

I think your puns are all remarkable, Griff. The Jethro one was particularly inspired!

Yes, I'm sorry about that - yours was one of the first batch of four that I started punning but I couldn't think of anything off the top of my head so just left it. Apologies. It did annoy me!

I said this on the thread, but I really think one of the thread titles should have ended up as 'Brotherlouie jumps the shark'.

However, I must admit that I chuckled when I saw 'kath fucqued' - really it coukln't have been anything else.

Except that, as I've whinged about before, 'jumping the shark' shouldn't mean a moment of defeat but the moment when you pull out so many stops to keep you in the game that it inevitably leads to a subsequent defeat in the next.

You seem to be jumping the shark here, Roddy.

Well, if you have a look at the derivation of 'jumping the shark', I think the phrase's meaning becomes clear. It refers to a preposterous episode of Happy Days where The Fonz goes water skiing and literally jumps over a passing shark. The whole point of this is that this incident symbolises how the series had run out of workable ideas and moved firmly into the realm of absurdity. To quote Wikipedia:

Even before "jumping the shark" was employed as a pop culture term, the episode in question was cited many times as an example of what can happen to otherwise high-quality shows when they stay on the air too long in the face of waning interest—or when they simply cease to maintain quality standards for writing or acting, resorting to cheap sensationalism.


Therefore, "jumping the shark" should refer to an occurrence way after the peak of a series (or other pop-cultural phenomenon) which becomes a symbol of declining standards.

You're not in the Cup, are you? I was hoping for something like "Clarkophilephobia!"

:lol:
I like that.

I'm in next year for sure. We'll be able to trot that out at the appropriate time. :P

Can I just say the pun quality has been maintained tonight.

You'd better start work on one for me.

All very good but Tapiocahead did it best three years ago (for it is he, lest we forget, who first punned people out of the Cup when he was at the helm) when he amended the title of the thread with "Griff Outed!"

How do you follow that? :lol:
