(A quick note: a few years ago, I was doing some web design work for a dear friend and client in southern Oregon (Leonard Laskow) and we discovered a mutual interest in puns… Some time later, I showed this total pun blitz to him at one of our design meetings, and he exclaimed, “Bruce, I wrote that!” He had no idea that it would propagate as far as it did, propagating even back in the days when photocopying was a primary vehicle for sharing fun and silly stuff. I first came across it as a teenager growing up in Livermore Calif. and heard that someone at Lawrence Livermore Lab had written it. What a small world to discover it’s original author! 🙂 Here’s the extended pun, which you’ll likely discover is a familiar fairy tale 🙂
