**World Hobbit Day** Primula's Pun Parameters: A Word Play adventure! Can't Post

A Paronomastical Party(Yeah, I had to look that up! Blush)



* Here's the idea 

*

Choose a topic with Pun Potential and begin a sub-thread in reply to this one.


A couple of examples:

1. Subject line "I've been caught between a Roac and a hard place!"

A sample reply: "You'd just have to say 'snail and farewell.'"

2. Subject line "Don't be Beorning! Add a Hobbit or LOTR-related pun to this sub-thread!"

A sample reply: "Better post mine now before the great ones get all goblin-ed up!"
(Thanks to Weaver for this suggestion!)

Or try a poem, short story, etc. full of puns. You can even make it collaborative if you like (invite others to add their own lines).

Post as many times as you like. (See below for some possible topics)

Once you've started, hopefully others will jump in and form a Pun Chain, like this (it starts with the 7th post down): http://newboards.theonering.net/...rum.cgi?post=496190;

Just in case, here are a few possible subjects if you'd like to use one:

Book of the Moth club

The Eagle has landed

The unexpected party of the first part

Where do we get the Fundin for this project?

When lilacs last in Dori's yard bloomed . . .

Burglars can't be snoozers

How the trolls fell

Bolg, the raging power-mad peril (Fa la la la laaa . . .)

I would have liked [In reply to] Can't Post

to put a pun in every line of this, but it simply refused and did its own thing. So enjoy....whatever this is. Wink

A Hobbit Day Poem...Limerick....Thing

Hobbits guess riddles for fun,
While Elves give two answers for one,
Nobody knows how the Ents' humor goes:
No-one's ever awake when they're done!

Dwarves have a penchant for slapstick,
Goblins call gross-outs fantastic
A Wizard's amused when his friends are bemused,
and sometimes a wee bit sarcastic.

Eagle jokes fly right over your head
Dragon-speeches are something to dread
When bored with the flock-talk, Thrushes tell knock-knocks
But you'll have to ask Bard what they said

Warg jokes make an audience howl,
And Crebain black humor is foul,
Moth comedy's quiet but they think it's a riot,
and Sauron greets jokes with a scowl

Trolls leave their listeners stunned,
But I think that when all's said and done
Once we get in the groove we always do prove
That TORNadoes were just Beorn to pun!

That's one Silvery Load of awesome! [In reply to] Can't Post

If Hobbits were trees
They'd bend with the breeze

If Dwarfs were of stone
They'd feel right at home

But Wizards are diff'rent
Each has his own bent

Some just wish to sit still
and bend men to their will

Or revel in nesting
with animals are resting

While others do wander
their time they don't squander

But this needs to be punny
and my brain's getting runny

So to The Hobbit I'll strive
to applaud seven-five!

Can't resist: "Burglars can't be snoozers," a poem/song/thing. [In reply to] Can't Post

(Channeling Cinderella)

Ten minutes ago my flet flew--
I fell off as I went through the door.
My head started reeling in
the fish I was stealing
To keep them off the forest floor!

Ten minnows to go and I'm wet through
From fishing in Nimrodel's stream.
I'm dead if they find me,
They might be close behind me
I'll Gollum my fish up right now--

I will Gollum all of them up, riiight noooooooow!
