Re: "No Pun Intended" Discussion

This is an old joke. Fry and Laurie (in 'a bit of fry and laurie') add "if you'll pardon the pun" to punless sentences. I was hoping somebody would spot that. "How are you doing, Stephen? Pardon the pun." "There was no pun Hugh." "Oh wasn't there? I'm sorry."

Re: 1984 (Or Nineteen Eighty-Four)

1984 is great, one of my favourites. I love the first sentence of this book. It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen. Instant, effortless alienation. More than that, the first paragraph: It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen. Winst...

Re: Your favorite stand-up comedian? (Poll)

I picked two from the poll (Mitch Hedberg and Bill Hicks), and have to say Bill Bailey as the third.
I mean, it really is hard picking 3 but these would stand out (or up) as the top for me.
Others I enjoy but who aren't in the 3:
Jimmy Carr
Steven Wright
Dylan Moran

Re: XKCD book club September, Cat's Cradle

Interestingly enough, I read this without having seen it first here.

It was pretty good, but personally I like some of his other work better (S-5, Galapagos).

"See the cat? See the cradle?" was my favourite line from the book, and the notion of Bokononism was very clever.
