LOL! Hilarious puns, luna!

One of my favourite quips is credited to Dorothy Parker (Queen of Quips): "You can drag a horticulture, but you can't make her think."

Another: "If all the girls who attended the Yale prom were laid end to end, I wouldn't be a bit surprised."

Here's one I made up all by myself: "Mental illness is all in your head."
Hey, I'm no Dorothy Parker, but I make myself laugh.
