Re: Rogue to be launched tomorrow

Stan Kegel
 

Sorry, I did have Charles confused with Bert. 

Anyway we will miss you there, Charles.

Stan

= = = = = =

As easy as it is to confuse Charles, I believe in this case Stan has him confused with Bert Piboin, whose pun-off attendance record exceeds mine by several years. While not exactly a later rival to the event, I don’t think Charles’ participation goes back any farther than Stan’s does.


BTW - Bert Piboin is stepping down after a 3 year term on the board of the Brush Square Museums Foundation (Formerly known as the Friends of O.Henry) but will remain more-or-less in Austin and very likely will continue to attend and/or participate in the Pun-Off for many jeers to come.

Charles,

If my memory serves me right, you hold the record for either the most Pun-Offs attended or the most Pun-Offs participated in, and we will all miss your presence and participation each May. I only wish is you had let us know so we could have honored you from the podium a few weeks ago.

By the way, how many years will it take Gary to match your record.

Good luck indoor new home.

Since my better half and I will move to Poland for a year or two in about a week, I thought it appropriate to come up with a Rogue with an Eastern European theme.  I'll launch it tomorrow about 2 p.m. CST.  It won't be anything of an imaginative nature like Gary's limericks, but rather a mixture of punning genres, some of them oldies (but goodies).


One of the regulars on this list asked me what the story on Poland was.  I had a Fulbright lectureship there during the 1979-81 academic years, Beata was my student, and we married a f ew years later.  I joke that I wanted a young, pretty wife and she wanted a green card. We celebrated our 30th anniversary this past April, so it was obviously more than a sugar daddy relationship.  Again, I joke that she was looking for three things in a husband:  looks, money, and education.  Well, one out of three ain't bad!  I do have a Ph.D.

I was a big fan of the black nwhite cowboys too, but to my great Zorro they were all expelled from our state by the ruthless Tex Ridder. (Just Cisco Kidding!)

Thanks, Cyn, for remembering. Hopalong Cassidy was actually one of my favorite cowboy shows as a kid, along with that recluse musical writer: The Lone Arranger.

Charles,

    Congratulations to you on having been declared fully bright, and on your Beata-fic marriage!

    So, what will you be doing to support yourself in Pole Land?  Teaching again?

   We have the past, but cannot yet see the future here.

    Aloha,

Taking a cue from Budweiser’s summer rebranding its premier product as “America,” a popular brand of peanut butter has re-located their headquarters to Detroit and will incorporate that city’s popular nick-name into their reworked product name.

Clues #1 and #2 - Chirp…chirp…chirp! Zero players! Really? - How many different peanut butter makers can you name? How many nick-names does Detroit have?

Clue #3 - The name of the comic strip which is the target phrase of this riddle is also a combination of two names. Did I mention that it's really really old?

Clue #4 - Okay, its getting to be crunch(y) time for this riddle. The title of this old comic strip (Did I mention that its really old?) featured the names of the two main characters. One was considerably taller than the other.

Taking a cue from Budweiser’s summer rebranding its premier product as “America,” a popular brand of peanut butter has re-located their headquarters to Detroit and will incorporate that city’s popular nick-name into their reworked product name. Only problem is, it could cause confusion because it sounds very similar to the name of an old comic strip. What are they calling their new product?

Clues #1 and #2 - Chirp…chirp…chirp! Zero players! Really? - How many different peanut butter makers can you name? How many nick-names does Detroit have?

Clue #3 - The name of the comic strip which is the target phrase of this riddle is also a combination of two names. Did I mention that it's really really old?

Clue #4 - Okay, its getting to be crunch(y) time for this riddle. The title of this old comic strip (Did I mention that its really old?) featured the names of the two main characters. One was considerably taller than the other.
