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

Perhaps one of us can top that.  Put on your thinking caps & have at it.

Not totally Steampunk (except by intent), but: a criminal in an elevator that is going down?  Condescending.

A criminal's hideout in an inwardly curved area of the rock face? Concave.

To drag this topic kicking and screaming back into the faux-19th century ...

A wise steampunk?  Cognizant.  An anonymous steampunk?  Incognito.

Carry on.

What did the doctor say to the shrinking man? "You're going to have to be a little patient."

And the doctor will see less of him as time progresses.

Yes, curing does result in shrinkage.

This stalk of pith suggests the discussion is branching towards the arboreal.  Without wishing to trunckate the discussion, once I twigged to this it felt as though I wood prefer to leaf the subject alone; it merely opens another canopies. But I will bough to the opinion of the majority.

A pithy summary but there's no need to get a bee in your bonnet. Of course if you do just open up the hood so the car can let off steam.  With the current weather you may do so as well or simply be overcome by the vapours.

I took my frock coat in for a steam wash but it came out as dirty as when I took it in.
When I complained the woman behind the counter was most abusive and I had to tell the manager.
He sacked her on the spot.

The service is so much better with the cow gone.

Some of these puns are shockingly funny, and it I'd obvious there are some sparks in the forum, but I haven't galvanized my opinion about this thread, given the current trends in Steampunk.

Are you positive that that isn't a negative comment?  Should it be moved to "current events"?

Yes, it'd take more to transform my opinion.  Otherwise I'd have to rectify my post!
