Look at the excess of cringeworthy puns here.

Anyway...

As of 1990? So 21 years ago then (2011 minus 1990). 8)


That's the most current information. I dunno whether they bothered to pay since then.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

"So... Fred.... they gave me a size 230... what did they give you? These feel a little snug. I mean these look like they would be more your style anyways Fred... they are Nike ffs...I told them I have a contract with Puma and I can't break the contract, you know how it is."
del Black Sabbath had a track on their album Faires Wear Boots, wonder if they were riding on the Elephants. :)

And which Hannibal are we speaking of here? The Cannibal or the Carthaginian? :roll:

As the puns are elephant related, I'd say the Carthaginian. :P

I knew that. :| That was the point. I was making a joke, as most people of my generation, when they hear the name 'Hannibal', would immediately think of Anthony Hopkins saying "I ate his liver with some fava beans, and a nice Chianti. S-S-S-S-S-S-S!" Or maybe a certain character from The A-Team.

He'd need an awful lot of Chianti to wash down 1000 elephants. :lol:

:D :D

My daughter did a psycho routine at her comp with a hannibal mask... (Dammit I am still trying to get the photo off my phone and up here). It was so scarey. She was bound up in a straight jacket about to go on stage and said "Mum! Can you push my hair out of my eyes!" I was really really freaked about even going near her let alone touch her.... my brain was saying oh yeah that my baby... my other brain was saying RUUUUN! :shock:

++ to that. (What other brain are we talking about, here? One in a glathth jar?)

I think that "Hannibalize" pun was very clever indeed, since it alludes on the one hand to the Carthaginian and his Elephants and at the same time to Hannibal the Cannibal, both of which fitted the context. :mrgreen:
