Destroying the last shreds of Mr E Man’s anonymity for the sake of a good pun

Me: “Have you seen my bookmark?”

Him: “It’s in your hand”

Me: “…”

Me: “No, not ‘have you seen my book, Mark?’. I meant ‘have you seen my bookmark, Mark?'”

(Mark will continue to be referred to as Mr E Man on this blog, because a) I think it’s funny and b) I like it when he comes with me to meet bloggers and they call him Mr E Man to his face and he gets confused)

  1. Bwaaa ha ha ha ha *cough* *splutter*.

    I suggest trying this “bookmark” “book Mark” thing on him once per year, forever.

  2. Mike says:

    Does this mean he’s a distant relation of Mark E Mark?

  3. Cath, I enjoyed your plays on words. They made me think of the Monty Python “Word Association Football” sketch (although I know it’s not exactly the same thing).

    As they say in (British) football: Mark your man!

    And 2014!

    Keep up the puns. They may be “the lowest form of humor,” but I’d be humorless without them…

    I second Richard’s suggestion.
