oh my cogs.
did any of you Æther notice how much puns are possible in steampunk? it's a rod.
it's a great way to blow off some steam and to add some humour to a conversation.
(but beware, excessive use of puns might grind someone's gears and therefore put you in a bed section)

please give me your very best steampuns. impress me!

(if you give explanation on puns you get extra points)

There once was a lady named Bright
Whose speed was faster than light
she set out one day
in a relative way
and returned home the previous night...

Cog forgive you, my dear, for you know not what mayhem you risk unleashing by asking this lot for puns.  Cool

You risk provoking the wrath of the Boiler Safety Police.

That's right — you'll have the Steam Heat on your tail!

As you've taken a shine to steampuns this puts us all on our metal, although some of our efforts lack polish.

Q. Why was the mad scientist down at the beach feeding drugs to the birds?

A. He wanted to leave no tern unstoned

While on the subject of birds: my surname is Stone, and one evening I took my son to a new restaurant where we both had a half a chicken. It was so bad we had the distinct impression that they were trying to kill two Stones with one bird.

I love all your puns!
Theyre very cool. Or rather Steamin' hot.
Keep them coming! I'm going to watch some goggle-box and when I return I expect even more!

(In case you don't know: goggle-box is an old-fashioned word for television)

Let me not cast doubt in your mind. I'll try not to derail the thread with the machinations in my head. You are all so clever, I'm sure I'll have these steampuns engraved in my memory.

We must remember to conduct ourselves with decorum, lest some bright spark call the coppers.  'Wired they do that?', you might well ask.

Depending on watt you mean by "decorum," they might just be bolton for cover.

And we must also spare a thought for the electrical engineers suffering extreme vexation. They are at the end of their Tesla.

Ooh! Doing well! Be careful not to slip a cog thinking off all these puns. We don't want you to go mad!
Anyway, I'm sure you're still only building steam,
Steam on!

Yes, it's too easy to go off the boil. But at least one new post per day should be our coal.

I agree with the colonel. If you can't think of own puns maybe you could steel them from other places? Hat should not be a problem.

(I know, i know, lame and not the right metal but I just came out of bed, forgive me)

We'll just have to cap each others puns. Perhaps a fast Bowler or a sedate Topper, there's a wide Panama of possibilities.
