And now!  The talon-toed team of Perry Grin Productions brings you:

“Ben Hur: the remake,” starring

Birk N. Stawk

and the villain,

See the thrilling chariot scene!

(Richard says it should end with Godzilla in his Doc Martens stomping out the set. I say keep the Poppa-razzi out of it.)

LOL. Giggles and a big smile. Too funny. Reading on my BB so picture is tiny, however I’m guessing that is a finished pair of socks in the Berkies? Keep on truckin’!

Knitted, finished, but not kitchenered yet, two dpns aiming out of each.

I think the DPNs would be really effective against those pesky heels.

Socks? Everybody knows Birk N Stawk is supposed to do a “nude” scene (no socks). Heh!

You’re feeling quite well, aren’t you? 😉

I’m with sherry, though there’s a smile behinds the groans. You really outdid yourself this time, on both the puns and the socks.

You know, kids today (she said, sounding WAY older than 25) don’t know Ben Hur? I showed the chariot race to my students a few years ago, and they had no idea what was going on. D:

Very punny, Very punny! The socks do look gorgeous, though.

… and verra funny:

A husband was in BIG trouble when he forgot his wedding anninversary. “Tomorrow,” his wife angrily told him, “there had better  be something in our driveway that goes from zero to 200 in under five seconds!”

The next morning, the wife looked outside and saw a small package in the driveway.   She brought it inside, opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale. Along with it was a card that read … “Happy Anniversary Sugar Muffin”.

Comment by Diana Troldahl 09.04.09 @ 3:00 pm
