Workin’ Hard, Tryin’ To Teach Punky @BrewStudNo1 Of Humor. Failing.

It started as a biographical not concerning Her Majesty:

As somebody who nurses dreams of writing fiction some day, and is fascinated by criminal psychology in general, I had to inquire:

The lesson began when, as a Lefty will, Punky had to go all potty mouth:

Now, I do have 4 1/2 years of sea time in the Navy. But you become jaded about the potty mouth. It’s more interesting to work with the situation and see where it can go. Ah, yes: an #OccupyResoluteDesk gag:

At this point, Punky’s boorishness (one wonders if he doubles as a Trump supporter) comes to the fore, and he gets all Flukie-Dukey on me:

Here I decided to hold training and violate the “explain nothing” rule:

Sure, I love well-done malapropism as much as the next guy, but using “incongruent” here sounds like somebody who’s only qualified through two-syllable words reaching for a four-banger and grabbing the ronngg one. Possibly there is some humor in here and I’m just missing it.

Past that tweet, @BrewStudNo1 wallowed in his taste for banal, NTTAWWT. I would like to publicly forgive him all the insults. Our political discourse is too rife these days with people getting all spun up and emotional. Request everyone who reads this post that has a Twitter account swing by and offer @BrewStudNo1 a sincere virtual hug. Together we can get through these trying times, mate.

    I find arguing with or eventalking to people like Punky pointless. As I’ve written before it would be more productive trying to explain gravity to a dog.

    He’s from the “no youre a dummy!!1” school of wit.

    I hope you did him the benefit of defining incongruent. I’m pretty sure he has no idea what it means.

    Hey, a border collie or jack russell knows what gravity is. Explaining these things to Punky is more like this:

    At least the dog can feign understanding and won’t interrupt you.
