Was it just me?
The jokes in the tom swifty puzzle just were'nt funny or even particularly apt. You had to stretch for the word associations... a sad come-down after the excellent Tom Swiftys in the last few months.

I think your sense of humor is perfect

I liked my phrases and thought they were amusing, so thanks for a fun puzzle, Sploofusaurus!

But it took me much longer than usual to do the WP because I kept gettng connection timed out/server busy messages. That never happened to me before.

I was having those issues too - I did a lousy job on that puzzle - but that's probably due to overloaded brain from taxes....sigh

You know, big areas are missing from my sense of humor and always have been. It's the rare Tom Swifty that seems clever and amusing to me. So this was just par for the course.

(But other areas of my sense of humor are overdeveloped. This results in inappropriate silliness or howls of laughter at inopportune times.)

Hi again,
Probably like most of you, I first learned about Tom Swifties when I was in elementary school. I giggled over them then, and I giggled over them again while doing the Animal Swifties WP. I suppose I approach each puzzle differently depending on the theme. For the Animal Swifties, I took myself back to elementary school. As I looked at each puzzle, I talked to myself out loud, and that made it even more fun.

lets go see the lions tom roared -- I imagined myself as a kid at the zoo.
grizzly bears dont frighten me tom growled -- I imagined my little brother saying this.

So, maybe I was in the minority, but I thought my phrases were apt and worthy of a chuckle or two.

I was going to comment that the professional tom swifties were funny... but then I realize my appreciation of the quiz may be based on my score. (underscored garrybl)

Well anyway, nice WP
