Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

It’s Never Too Late for… a Fever

Howdy, there, cowpokes.

Apologies for getting this week’s Punchline Fever to you so tardily — I’ve been a bit busy readying the office for my week-long absence coming up in about… well, what time is it now? Basically, I’ve got a couple of things to wrap up tonight, and then I’m O-U-T out, and off to the land that gave us pub crawls, Monty Python, and Mister Bean. (Hey, two out of three ain’t bad, right?)

But before I jet, I owe you a Punchline Fever, and that’s what I’m here to deliver. So stand back — it gets a little messy sometimes. For you newbies in the crowd, here’s how we swing our pardners in this particular dance:

1) I’ll sit around, day and night, thinking of a short but flexible setup for a joke.

B) I’ll post the best setup I can think of, but with a blank where the punchline should go.

iii) Then it’s up to you to come up with your best line, and leave it in the comments, for all to snicker over.

That’s all there is to it. So let’s see what the old brain has cooked up for us this week, eh?

Punchline Fever #20:

It’s a little known fact that John Wayne almost signed a deal to shoot the world’s first ‘porno western’. The project never got off the ground, but it did have a working title: _____________________________

There you go, folks. That’s your Punchline Fever for the week. And since I’ll be AWOL in merry olde England next Friday, that’s all you’ll get for next week, too. (Aw, don’t look so glum. Chin up, old pip!)

But if you’re Jonesin’ for a Fever in the meantime, check out the whole set in the archives. That oughta keep you busy for a while. Happy Friday!

    (One more, since I’ll be away all week…)

    …’Gunfight at the Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! K. Corral’

    (See, I was making my ‘Oh!’ face. It’s… aw, never mind. Sheesh.)

    wow..a tough one, though so many things come to mind, my first inclination is to go with his famous “pilgrim” catchphrase and make a comment about “Plymouth Cock”… but that’s a stretch.

    So I’ll just link to IMDB and let others be creative (although you have to admit that ‘Lady for a Night’ in 1942 is a pretty obvious choice, as well as 1934’s ‘The (Chocolate) Star Packer’… )

    oh well, have fun!

  5. HR Lady says:

    Debbie does Pilgrims? Yeah, lame. I know. But I’m no John Wayne fan. I know unAmerican. Sorry, can’t help it. I’ll be hiding out hoping they don’t try to deport me for it. ;)
