First:Moosebreath – It’s not the size that counts.

Second:OzarkHillbilly – “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but the weird happeneth to them all.”

Third:Franklin – I thought I had nice wheels, but I spoke too soon.


Tyrell – I would love to see Al Gore out here doing this!

Dave in KC – OK, the UK version of the clown car is a lot more entertaining.

CSK – “Why, yes, my dear chap: This is the Grand Prix, and I am indeed the Grand Prick.”

kevinI’m not so sure being a climate alarmist is worth it.

RockThisTown – “Rollin’ . . . rollin’ . . . . rollin’ on the river.”

Pinky – Now, even Lance Armstrong’s front wheel is juicing!

John425 – This early version of the “Have you any Grey Poupon?” ad was quickly abandoned.


The Tour de Prance

Colonel Mustard on the causeway with a bicycle?

The event quickly failed as no feminine hygiene products would sponsor the Thames Puns 500.

  1. Moosebreath says:

    Thanks, Rodney.

  2. OzarkHillbilly says:

    An atheist wins 2nd place for misquoting the Bible. The war on Christianity is all but over here at OTB. 😉

    On the more serious side, I loved Franklin’s “spoke to soon” word play, and laughed heartily at many others, but I have to give mention to Pinky’s Armstrong…. too funny.

  3. Franklin says:

    Thanks. I particularly liked CSK’s entry, because of the intentional mispronunciation.

  4. CSK says:

    Thank you, Franklin. And thank you, Rodney.

  5. Rodney Dill says:

    @OzarkHillbilly: I think there was supposed to be a John 3:16 banner on Big Ben.

    Aynway, It wouldn’t have been as funny if it wasn’t a Bible misquote.

    …and this explains my Polish moon reference that no one was going to bother to Google.

  6. Paul Hooson says:

    Blimey, my British sense of humor was so subtle this week, it’s like I didn’t hardly even get it either. …

  7. Franklin says:

    @Paul Hooson: If your ego has taken a hit, I will say that I thought “downwardly mobile” was kind of clever.
