*PUN WARNING: This post was generated in a factory that also processes puns and bad jokes. Contains puns and plays on words.
So, apparently there is a clothing company, Lululemon, that makes activewear, including running tights and yoga pants for women. Only they have recently recalled much of their merchandise because of a little…problem.
Now, you may think it odd that I would post something about clothing, much less about a particular clothing recall, and it’s true that most of my own clothing is mismatch hand-me-downs and thrift items, but….butt…there have been so many great buns, I mean puns!, about this issue.
To get to the bottom of this matter, you should really read this NPR article because it is amazing:
I myself have had a three day pun war with a friend on Facebook about the shear stupidity of the whole thing:
I posted about the Lululemon scandal, and he replied with: “Trying to lure me into another punning duel eh? Puns about buns no less (or more; I guess that’s the issue). I’ll pass rather than end up the butt of your jokes. I can see right through your plans.”
To which I responded: “Well, it wasn’t posted for anyone in particular (male OR punster), but so the world might enjoy the delightful collection of puns. Although (not to toot my own horn*), I seem to remember victory last time. Anyway, you know that my lab is ALL about studying good looking asters. *pun not intended?”
And he replied: “Actually, I think that article about See Through Pants is one-sided. If you think about it, the sheer fabric might make a good swim suit (less shear, i.e. drag) and give one a great feel for the water (Sea Through Pants) and freedom to easily seek relief (Pee Through Pants), with tear-away ability should they become caught on something (Flee Through Pants). As usual, pondering the flip side reveals new possibilities.”
And I answered: “Haha, I must admit defeat, although I think you win through shear luck. Somehow I always fall behind in these pun wars. Your prize is some pirate’s booty. Butt maybe I can call in reinforcements? My friend studies and even photographs large asters, maybe she’d like to throw her buns, I mean puns, into the mix?”
My friend commented: “It seems my assistance is needed, although I feel I’m bringing up the rear. It’s not unusual for her to dump assignments on me. I feel the real victims here are these hose and thankfully this obvious crack in the company’s reputation will be rectified. I’d hate to see this company leave, but I love to watch it walk away.”
And the original commenter: “Hmm … your friend is pretty good at this. I need to quit this and attend to my work, but you gals are cracking me up.”
She answered: “Indeed I never assumed I’d stoop so low.”
Have anything to add in this worthiest of battles?
