    Heisenberg didn't know his L from his S, Bo.

    (Bo is a Physics student, if he was doing QM, he'd hear the entangled phonemic pun)

    Maybe you could get away with

    "Heisenberg didn't know his L from his S..."

    on the wall of a Physics Lab, say.

    Woman on bed in maternity ward: "Nhnngnnghhhnngghhh!"

    Nurse: "Looks like another one's getting ready to drop in on the world."

    Doctor: "My god! It's another laboured pun!"

    Don't worry Vkothii, he wouldn't know his arse from his 'L', Bo!

    Is it a pun?, Is it a double entendre? Is it both?

    It might be funny, but then it might not.

    It might not even be a pun, somehow I couldn't be certain.

    Yeah but you'd 'ave to admit, it was a 'ell of a good try.

    I'm treading carefully 'cos one thing I'm wary of is being at the wrong end of a cross Bo.

    No, the thing is, if he got his ell entangled with his ess, then he needs Bo.

    Bo can tell him which is his s and which his l, you see.
    Of course, everyone knows you cant have an arse-bow...or can you?

    When it comes to taking yourself seriously, it never pays to do it to the extent you start to take yourself seriously.

    Seriously not taking yourself too seriously.
    It's an art form and a life style.
    Well picked Vkothii

    From 'Do you love America?' thread ...Pjdude with numbers.. "was i couldn't spell opportunity and i know your anal about spelling. also chance and opportunity are synanyms."

    Is that 5 grammatical errors in a rant about one's spelling ability?

    Good work!

    I count eight errors although not all are grammatical:
    • 1. was -- dangling fragment
    • 2. was -- first word in sentence should be capitalized
    • 3. i -- should be capitalized
    • 4. opportunity -- should be in quotation marks
    • 5. i -- should be capitalized
    • 6. your -- should be "you're"
    • 7. also -- first word in sentence should be capitalized
    • 8. synanyms -- should be "synonyms"
    We all make mistakes but this is sheer laziness and it's disrespectful of the readers. In aggregate it takes far more of our time to read a sentence one letter at a time instead of holistically, than for the writer to proofread his own work.
