Let’s Get Down To Business, To Defeat The Puns

| Vancouver, BC, Canada | Math & Science, Musical Mayhem, Punny

(My friend and I are studying for our upcoming exams. A few semesters before this, I changed majors from Chemistry to English.)

Friend: *singing* “Let’s get down to business, to defeat the huns.”

Me: *giggles*

Friend: “What?”

Me: “I just realized that after all my time in math and science, how did I miss the chance to say, ‘Let’s get down to business, to defeat the sums?’”

Friend: “Get out.”


And That’s Why They Call It The Booze

| Cleveland, OH, USA | Food & Drink, Musical Mayhem

(Our band and orchestra director is fairly laid back, and the winds in orchestra, especially the other bassoon player, enjoy joking around with him, even in rehearsal. We are a day away from our state contest, and he is giving us hints on what to do and what not to do before contest. I am also a well-renowned goody-two-shoes.)

Director: “Winds, don’t use any perfume or cologne that morning. I mean, use deodorant, but perfumes and such tend to have alcohol, which can dry out your mouth.”

Bassoon: “So we should just stay away from alcohol then?”

Director: “Well, I mean, you should probably do that anyway-”

Me: “Dang, there go my plans for tonight.”


Do The Muffin Top!

| MA, USA | Language & Words, Musical Mayhem

(I am a dance teacher assistant. The teacher was teaching a tap step called a scuffle to a group of kindergarten age kids.)

Teacher: “What other tap step rhymes with this?”

Student #1: “Muffle!”

Student #2: “Muffin!”

(The real answer was shuffle.)
