I have to get this out there.

One of my players was looking over my shoulder at the book I was reading.
He asked what that frogman creature was in the picture.
I said, "They're called grippli's, believe it or not."

There was discussion of stringing me up.

The greatness of a pun is inversely proportional to its tolerability.

If you can do a good Jack Palance impersonation, that would be icing on the cake.

Oh yes, this is fantastic. I'm convincing my DM to have this come up in Extinction Curse somehow, lol.

One evening, I had sketched out the rough shape of a dungeon room in a cave when one of my players pointed out that it looked like a dolphin.

I told him I didn't do it on porpoise.

I regret nothing.

Well, the great thing about the internet is, folks can throw boos and insults, but they can't throw tomatoes.
I liked the un-bear-able puns guy.

Well as a non-American, also of a certain advanced age, this is the first time I've heard of the reference.

They have museums in other countries: Shanghai-China, Bangalore-India, Jeju Island-South Korea, Pattaya-Thailand, Copenhagen-Denmark, Amsterdam-Netherlands, Blackpool-United Kingdom, Cavendish/Prince Edward Island-Canada, Niagara Falls/Ontario-Canada, Toronto/Ontario-Canada, Guadalajara-Mexico, Mexico City-Mexico, Gold Coast-Australia.

They also made two adaptation for the Philippines and the current show can be seen internationally. Also the comic strip is seen in 42 countries* in those countries newspapers. Americans might have a better recognition of it, but they have made quite an effort to be known internationally. ;)

I actually didn't get the pun until I said it out loud, which seems to often be the case with me. Anyone else?
