Speaking of myrrhthful games and boyish banter, I am amazed the shop
full of myhhr-sayers riff has not ignited unlimited pun-warfare. We
have been so somber lately, and I would have suspected the
list members would need an antidote from the war and the
religious forcefeeding we must endure this time of year.

All wars should be pun wars. This could even continue
even after all of humanity uploads (the horror). Then the only
casualties would be those who intentionally erased their own
ROMs, seeking in data-death the sweet myrrh-say of oblivion.
