It's finally happened, and so close to home no less; the return of the bad pun as a viable way to write newspaper articles.
Some may see it as a throwaway line, but the comedic genius of "the Queen's Gaels definitely enjoyed a Blaise of glory last weekend" is a signal to us all that the bad pun has made its triumphant return.
For those who don't get it - the top receiver last week was Blaise Morrison, whose first name is a homophone (not that there's anything wrong with that - ZING!) of the word "blaze".
What's that you say? "Blaze of glory" is something people have before they die? Shut up, I say back.
Finally, the vault of potentially pun-derful Golden Gaels can be opened for the remainder of the season. Watch for these gems as the limestone city's top journalistic standard continues its coverage:
- "With such a dominating rushing performance last week, the Gaels' offence sure was Giffin it their all."
- "Considering the number of passes thrown by Queen's in the game, it's entirely possible that Coach Sheahan's breakfast consisted of a bowl of All-Brannagan."
- "Queen's linebacking corps racked up so many tackles that this reporter wonders whether Cypress Hill would consider them to have been inThaine in the membrane."
- "As far as scoring went, the Gaels certainly weren't Ionneedy."
- "Queen's third-string running back was unsure as to whether he'd play, but this reporter demanded the answer from the coaching staff: Izzy or isn't he?"
- "Oduwole, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain!"
- "The Special Teams, or Village People, certainly weren't Macho Men on this day."
- "There certainly was some Sterling play on the Gaels' defensive line last week."
- "Devan Sheahan and his father/coach have admitted to having a love-eight relationship."
But until you do, I leave this parting shot:
What did the papa buffalo say to the baby buffalo before he went to work?
Oh, what a day for Journalism!
