From: The Hallock Entity <c.hallock@...>
Subject: P.U.N.Y.: SICK SHOOTERS (7/22/97)
Date: July 20, 1997 at 7:48:45 AM CDT
To: PUNY MAJORDOMO <puny@...>
Reply-To: c.hallock@...

WELCOME TO "SICK SHOOTERS," the PUNY virtual version of O.Henry's
High-Lies & Low-Puns.  As hinted before, I'll toss out a topic and
everyone who wants to play will respond with his/her favorite or best
puns on that topic. (limited to three entries per person)

This is an experiment in the potential for PUNY e-mail participation.
Since this not a text of your extemporaneous or improvisational
abilities,  we obviously can not use the same rules that apply at the
Pun-Off.  

While it is okay for each individual submission to contain more than a
single pun I must beg of you to please DO NOT take the topic and do it
to death in story style.  Any single submission may include several
sentences of "set-up" if needed, but what will impress the judges are
clean & witty one-liner type puns that don't sound contrived and don't
take a great leap of logic or linguistics to appreciate. What we're
looking for is something that you might offer if you were in excellent
form on stage at the O.Henry Pun-Off. (The kind of clever things you
think of just after you get gonged out.)

As with the O.Henry Pun-Off, we will expect you NOT to make your puns
based directly upon a word or words that have already been used either
by you or by another contestant.  In the event of duplicate sumissions
within the same round, the judges must assume the possibility that the
duplication was unavoidable and each submission will be judged upon its
individual merit.  Since all submissions will be immediately posted to
everyone on the PUNY majordomo mailing list, it will not be difficult
for all participants to meet this requirement.  Those who can't, may
risk disqualification.

Unlike the O.Henry Pun-Off, the quality and cleverness of your puns will
be much more important than their quantity or rapidity.  If you are a
great punster but for some reason have been too inhibited to compete in
the O.Henry events, this may be just the place for you to shine.  I
don't know if we are prepared to (or allowed to) offer any prizes for
this, so let's worry about that later.  I'm much more interested in
creating a little interactive wordplay among our subscribers and seeing
if we can make it worth everyone's while to be signed up.

Assuming there are sufficient responses, a panel of judges will evaluate
all the submissions and determine which offerings rate as the cream of
the crop.  Also assuming a significant number of responses, we will then
go into round two.  The authors of the top ranking sumissions from round
#1 will be asked to again submit more puns on the same topic in round
#2. You may want to save your "killer puns" for round two.

Round two will begin on Thursday evening when the survivors of round #1
are announced.  The field of participants having narrowed, the response
time will also be reduced. The deadline for round #2 will be Noon,
Sunday, July 29, 1997. (As participation grows, a third round may be
added.)

- - - - - - - GARY HALLOCK - - - - - - -

This week's topic is "NAUTICAL TERMS"

The deadline for round #1 is Noon, (CDT) Thursday, July 26, 1997.

Limit three entries per player per round of competition.  Please submit
each entry as a separate e-message.

Please post all sumissions as a direct reply to this message with the
subject title "SICK SHOOTERS (7/22/97)."

Because I doubt I'll have time to digest them for you, please don't
forget to share all your contest entries with everyone on the P.U.N.Y
list <puny@....> (This is usually accomplished by
clicking on the "reply all" button.)

Six players engaged in this week’s game. Most are the usual suspects and all doing pretty well. Although a few of these riddles are trickier than others, each has been solved by at least one player, which leads me to believe that a set of public clues will not be especially useful. If you are a contender and wish to surge ahead, please post me further swags and I will respond with informative hints privately.

Current player standings are as follows...

Lars 13 kills
Kirk 10 kills
David W. 10 kills
Bill C. 10 kills
Chris 9 kills
Can 8 kills

Thank you for continuing to play,

Gary

Below you will find a collection of 15 brief riddle questions all on the same theme. Most contain a single BLANK which can be filled to complete the sentence in a punny way. The theme is ANIMAL BODY PARTS, which means your target words will be terms that generally do not apply to human anatomy. Otherwise it’s o-pun season, so all insects, fish, & mammals are fair game. A few of my target words may not be technically “body parts” as they are connected to reproductive cycle, but nonetheless are strongly associated with certain species. As the term “animal” is so broad, I have attempted to include some contextual clues in each set-up, but don’t depend on these applying to any of the specific creatures mentioned. 

Be the first to supply me with all (or most) of the answers I seek and you could win the dubious honor of claiming next weekend’s riddle for yourself. If you’d rather not claim, that’s okay, just tell me so when you submit your answer sheet and I’ll give you diplomatic im-PUN-ity.

( Free Sample Riddle )

0. - Before starting off on his road trip, the overweight pachyderm packed his spare tire in the BLANK. (####TRUNK)

============

1. - If you suspect your daughter might have a fever, just BLANK forehead

2. - When a serious artist goes shopping for a horsehair brush, quality is the BLANK thing they'll consider.

3. - The penguin and the dolphin at Sea World are both performing divas and are always quick to trade insults. Every chance she gets, the rude dolphin will BLANK the bird.  

4. - Small creatures of prey sometimes manage to evade predators by taking advantage of a legal loophole. They are protected by an escape BLANK.

5. - An empty tic-tac-toe grid upon which no play has yet occurred might look somewhat ike a hashtag, but punny biologists consider it an BLANK.

6. - The Eagles were looking for a new band member so they flew in a BLANK scout. 

7. - The flightless ostrich and kiwi are both birds. So are the soaring vulture and the condor. But are they "birds of a feather?" I suppose that’s a matter of a BLANK. 

8. - When it comes to reproduction, arachnid makes sense that some insects know BLANK BLANK-ly how to lay it on the line.

9.- Let’s pecker bags and head off to the apiary to study BLANK-keeping.

10. - At the top of every hour that damned little bird starts BLANK.

11. - When Queen Cleopatra was bitten on her breast by an asp, she broke out in song. “BLANK for the mammaries."

12. - A duck that walks a straight line? BLANK they think of next?

13. - Even though they’re very slow and gentle, sloths who live indoors occasionally BLANK the furniture.

14. - The Norse god lost his hammer and was really bugged that he would now be forced to use a different tool, his BLANK.

15. - On the heels of Tyco's big success with the Elmo doll, toymakers have come out with an interactive squeezable squid. Even though it only has 8 appendages, it can deliver BLANK.

The earliest documented evidence I find in my archives of PUNY games or banter is dated July 20, 1997. On that date I hosted a game I called “SICK SHOOTERS” wherein I invited all players to submit their three best puns on a given topic. Presumably I, (or someone) was going to judge the entries and offer up a winner. As with the actual O.Henry Pun-Off, our games, rules and expectations in those early days were somewhat fluid. As a separate message I will repost this ancient document later today in hopes of triggering some post-traumatic flashbacks. 

For the record, the name of the first listserv was "Prodigy.” Lee Jackson was, and still is, our "majordomo.” I believe he prefers to be called the “administrangler.”

moderated What's in a name

joseph h
 

Checking "Key of the Door" brought to mind a version of name play; I'm not quite sure what it might be called. there was a comedian, who wrote music hall songs, and may have performed in music halls as well. My faint memory of him was on radio.


The name Nosmo King -- the origin No Smoking; from the days when railway trains had a compartment in each coach labelled No Smoking.

I'm not keen on these home spying machines. I heard they were going to bring in Siri 'n' Gee [whoever he is] to my room. Boy, was I needled.

A birthday wish, encore.

Was not your plan, sir,
Survival is in store!

The birthday signs are rather good,
Though this stretched rhyme refers to food,
But cancer this year I must fight,
Things, I'm told, will work out right.

Thanks, Cyn.

Cyn,

Just two days for me. And simpler treatment invovling a nasty big needle to insert a capsule; no radium, and single short course of radiotherapy to cvome. They have learned a lot, and the treatments seem simpler..

I was in my early 30s, Joseph, and yes, it was a shock. But claustrophobe that I am, I was even more afraid of being confined to a hospital than I was of the cancer—and in those days they kept you much longer post-op. I was hospitalized for eight days. (Plus being hospitalized twice for intracavitary radium insertions.) (I also had external radium teletherapy, but no chemo. AND IT ALL WORKED!)

 

 

 

Glad you got past it, Cyn, and thanks for the good wishes. You must have been young when it hit; that would have been a terrible shock.

Hope you don’t have to return to the hospital or you’ll be re-warded. Best to stay home and ward play with us.
