It doesn’t seem staged to me. It’s more likely that Matt and Britta are familiar with each other, and as such Matt knows that Britta studies geology.
My dad emails the rest of my immediate family a “daily pun” every day (yeah, I know) and it always breaks down into a long run-on pun as everybody looks for new ways to be clever… kinda like what these two did, only protected from the prying eyes of the public.
Maybe not staged. I don’t know. The twenty-minute gap after the original pun leading to the minute-to-minute comments made me think so. I think all the recent submissions have made me forget that some people are still quick-witted.
Boring? Win!!! DaDesertRat said it. Lamebook is like watching Jerry Springer followed by Maury. When it’s done you have to prove somehow that that is not a true reflection of humanity (although it mostly is).
This was witty and refreshing but not so much that I think it was planned. It seems very plausible to me that a bunch of student in the same class are smart enough to put that together simply because of the amount of terminology that they would know.
I doubt that’ll accomplish anything, but I feel better for saying it. As for the actual post, it’s nice to see some witty banter going back forth. It’s like getting the occasional knuckleball on this site, considering what usually is shown.
I’d have planted a different line of punning; a botany thing wood do. I will admit, though, that the geology topic made for some dandelions to read…
Seriously, though, this would have been better on “Geekbook” (if it existed), which is not necessarily a bad thing. It’s just not Lamebook material.
