Puns of your own...

Post by Cindy B. » Sun Mar 30, 2014 8:12 pm

My doctor has a Siamese twin. What a paradox.

Which two letters come before Q? Piano.

For the longest time I was lost in thought. How amusing.

Poe was proud of his poem, The Raven, something to crow about.

I wanted to listen to some Mozart, but my DVD player was baroque.

And what's a stripper's favorite piece of music? Air on My G String.

I peeked in the box to find Schrodinger's cat dead. Now I have to barium.

The band wanted to march in the parade, but it was April.

I spilled coffee on my copy of Aesop's Fables and was left with a sopping mess.

Young Carl Gustav's parents wouldn't let him date because he was too jung.

( OK; but be forewarned; It won't be pretty! :wink: )


Many folks have seen the TV advertisement about the medical alert personal warning device that quotes an elderly person who calls and pleads: " Help; I've fallen and I can't get up! "


So the question now arises: ( What does the elderly musician say when they call 911? )

Answer: " Help I'm playing but I can't get down ! " :P

Why are drummers drawn to Campbell? They're good at cymbalization.

A normal " Fruedian Slip " often made by the analyst? ( I was too " Jung " to know better! ) :wink:

Oh, my. Sounds like a case of Dissociative Identity Disorder, more commonly known as "split personality."


And why was the British feline expelled from university? She was a cheetah.


:P (No one enjoys my jokes as much as I do.)

What would be a Campbellian recommended prescribed treatment method for the Jungian analyst to apply within this particular condition in implementing the process of " Individuation "?: ( " The Hero's Journey " ) :wink:


Addendum: My " very weak " attempt here reminds me of a musician's left-handed compliment often sarcastically given to another's performance that obviously fell very short where upon they would dryly remark: ( I liked what you were " trying " to do! ) :roll: :lol:


Or as the saying where I live goes: " If you find that the hole you are in keeps getting deeper: " quit digging! " :P

There was an interesting David Kudler clip about Joseph's: " Follow your bliss " statement awhile back where he quoted Campbell as mentioning many people misunderstood or misinterpreted this reference and maybe he should have restated it by saying: " Follow your " Blisters ". :wink:


Although I'm still trying to untie my " Gordian Knot ". :lol:

8) I was unaware of that, James. Thanks for sharing.


So what do you call folks who follow to the teachings of Campbell? Blissters.

Hey Cindy. I tried to find the quote under David Kudler's film " The Job "; ( which is excellent by the way ); but I couldn't track it down. My apologies for perhaps I may have been mistaken as to the original source. ( However ); I did find it listed in Wikipedia:
Campbell began sharing this idea with students during his lectures in the 1970s. By the time that The Power of Myth was aired in 1988, six months following Campbell's death, "Follow your bliss" was a philosophy that resonated deeply with the American public—both religious and secular.[54]

During his later years, when some students took him to be encouraging hedonism, Campbell is reported to have grumbled, "I should have said, 'Follow your blisters.'"[55]

( I must have " followed " a wrong turn somewhere. ) :wink:
