Wordplay For The Day

Failed Business Ventures:  The fellow who bought nearly played-out diggings of a valuable metal with a low melting point and tried to turn it onto a tourist trap where visitors could experience first-hand what it was like to get the raw ore might have had a good idea with the proper metal, but somehow "Mine Your Own Bismuth" never caught on.

I kind of liked it.

If you ever make it to Boomershoot I need to introduce you to Rolf Nelson. Puns come out of Rolf at the rate of about 1 per minute.

That stinks on ice, Roberta, but it's a good stink.

They had a contest to name the new prison up at Arcata California (on the ocean) some years back when I was living out west. Still don't understand why mine didn't win over "Pelican Bay State Prison".

I thought "Slammer by the Sea" sounded sort of poetic.
