Pun Test IV

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

I’m driving on the German autobahn.  I feel great; the sky is the limit.  But the speed isn’t the only thing making my day…

Example:

While driving, I like to eat little chocolate balls filled with cream.

Bahn-bons


1.  The natives have a unique accent in Southeastern Germany.  At the end of a meal, they say something that sounds French, and I feel oddly hungry for the road afterwards.

2.  I passed a drum circle on my way; as I looked between the hippies’ knees, I saw a new type of drum.

3.  In order to facilitate communication with passengers and other drivers at high speeds, I’ve developed a kind of ‘street-talk’ (mostly swerving and honking).  I’m thinking of having it recognized as an official language and taught in schools.

4.  The day nearly over, I took a detour to a drive-in theater and watched a wonderful romantic drama about two drivers who never seem to love each other at the same time.
