New suggestion for Chavez

Por que no te Callas?

"Why don't you just give up and go sing opera?"

I misread that as: why don't you do some manual labor for a change...you know, roll up your sleeves, get dirty, earn a few callouses.

Opera puns? Can't go any lower than that.

Your understandable disdain for opera has caused you to lose perspective. I will freely admit I don't like opera and wouldn't go to one with free tickets.

But this isn't about opera, man, it's about puns -- a truly misunderstood art form.

And there are things much worse than opera puns. Have I ever offered glurge? Dancing badgers? Squirrel privates?

There are no bad puns, just unappreciative audiences.

Hmmm, maybe I'll add some Malcolm McLaren later tonight.

For the record, I don't disdain either opera or puns and don't see how what I wrote could be interpreted that way. I also don't think they're a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

I must have misread you. I thought it was a criticism of my opera pun as being pathetically geeky -- nothing more square and dull than an opera pun.

But I wasn't upset. I just took as a friendly shot and replied in kind.

Nice Reese's reference, btw.
