________ and __________ seem.>
Let be be finale of!
|Jan-20-15|| ||fgh: Great pun, I almost fell out of my chair laughing. :-)|
|Jan-20-15|| ||morfishine: <fgh> ???????|
|Jan-20-15|| ||gars: Well, <morfishine> I also think this is a great pun!|
|Jan-20-15|| ||gars: I think 18) O-O is a beautiful and very brave move!|
|Jan-20-15|| ||OhioChessFan: <morfishine> is like Mikey from the cereal commercials, he doesn't like anything--pun related, anyway. On this occasion, I agree with him, as this is really bad, and not in a good sense.|
|Jan-20-15|| ||Check It Out: <OCF> Now you are obligated, upon the next occasion <morfishine> actually praises a pun, to exclaim, "He likes it, hey morfi!"|
Here's the commercial if you are not familiar with it. It's burned in to the brains of most adult Americans between the ages 40 - 60.
|Jan-20-15|| ||morfishine: <Check It Out> I've praised many puns, noteworthy "Control Ault Delete" by <FSR> & "Napoleon Blown Apart" (sorry, I forget the originator). I also think "The Sinking of the Grafs Play" was brilliant, but its not voted in|
Most issues I have here are weak games chosen first so some half-witty word play, emanating from the players names, can be forwarded. This goes against what I consider as games worthy of being elevated to "Game of the Day"
Even here, better would've been using the same pun, but with this game: Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2014 but somebody submitted "School of Hard Nakas" which misses the mark completely
|Jan-20-15|| ||FSR: <morfishine> <Zapoleon* Blown Apart> was <Phony Benoni>'s creation, and was indeed brilliant. I was responsible for the completely point-missing <School of Hard Nakas>. Sorry that you hate so many puns. If you created a few more yourself, maybe you'd appreciate how difficult it is to write good ones.|
<OCF> Your comparison of <morfishine> to Mikey is apt.
|Jan-20-15|| ||FSR: btw, of puns I've created, one of my favorites, and evidently a popular favorite of others, is <Instant Rapport> for Rapport's immortal five-move mate in R Rapport vs T Rogers, 2014. But CG.com has yet to use it. Maybe they'll deem it worthy of April Fool's Day. Some of my other favorite submissions continue to languish unused years after I submitted them.|
|Jan-20-15|| ||castagno: Check It Out, thank you, sincerely! I´m from Argentina and saw the commercial. Just there! Tears came to my eyes. True good child laughter, high medicine! Thank you again! I love it!!!|
|Jan-20-15|| ||Check It Out: <morfishine> I'm right there with you and have argued that point with chessgames.com on more than one occasion.|
<FSR> Yes, I bet you have a treasure trove of unused puns entered. You are definitely the site's pun-meister.
<castagno> You are welcome, glad you enjoyed it!
|Jan-21-15|| ||FSR: I agree with <morfishine> and <CIO> that great games should be given preference for GOTD, irrespective of whether they have a good pun (or even any pun) attached to them. CG.com consistently prefers mediocre games with puns attached to them over great games that don't lend themselves to puns. It should be the other way around.|
|Jan-21-15|| ||morfishine: <FSR> I've submitted 75 puns and maybe 3 or 4 got through: Pun Submission Page|
I've slowed down since I think we can submit a maximum of 100
|Jan-21-15|| ||FSR: <morfishine> CG.com claims that 100 is the limit,and it indeed once was, but it's definitely not anymore. I have well over 200 outstanding.|
|Jan-21-15|| ||FSR: 274, to be exact.|
|Jan-21-15|| ||paavoh: But <FSR>, you are the punster-in-residence here, so you are probably allowed more ;-)|
|Jan-21-15|| ||castagno: Thank you!|
|Jan-21-15|| ||castagno: Still smiling and sometimes even laughing! hahaha!!!|
|Jan-21-15|| ||crystalpauper: I liked this pun (and I usually hate puns). Upon seeing the pun, I knew link must have led to the infamous "Naka knight" game|
|May-18-15|| ||Abdel Irada: <Here's the commercial if you are not familiar with it. It's burned in to the brains of most adult Americans between the ages 40 - 60.>|
And it hurts. (But it probably hurts the non-adults between the ages of 40-60 even more. Think of the children!)
|Mar-19-16|| ||PawnSac: < MindCtrol9: Nakamura played bad ..especially the move 21......Ng2 >|
..Bf6 would have been better but not enough to get him outa trouble
|Jan-21-19|| ||thegoodanarchist: < FSR: <morfishine> <Zapoleon* Blown Apart> was <Phony Benoni>'s creation, and was indeed brilliant.>|
For the record, that may have been brilliant, but it is to Charles M. Schulz' credit (creator of the comic "Peanuts").
In one of his strips Snoopy conjectured that before Napoleon went off to battle, his wife would tell him
<Don't get blown apart, Bonaparte. Well, she could have said that.>
|Jan-22-19|| ||Phony Benoni: <thegoodanarchist> Actually, my inspiration was an old joke from my youth about an explosion in a kitchen being a case of "Linoleum blown apart".|
But I'm firmly convinced there are no original pun ideas any more. Just reworking of old ones.
They're sort of like chess ideas that way.
|Jan-26-19|| ||thegoodanarchist: <PB> I think you're right!|
