Ken_Begg Wasn’t that a device on Torchwood? Gamera977 Arrrrggggggghhhhhhh, I knew there wood be bad puns but just leaf me alone ok??? I wanna see blond guy show up with a giant chainsaw. Ericb You’ve got me stumped. Flangepart You’re barking up the wrong tree. If I counted up all the fleeing populace in these covers, would I have a winning lotto lumber? Ken_Begg I think you’re going out on a limb, there. Ericb These pretzels are making me thirsty, I’d kill for a Grootbeer about now. Gamera977 Personally I’d go with an ice cold Classic Oak or maybe a Mountain Yew… The Rev. This thread is giving me flashbacks to when we screened From Hell it Came at T-Fest years ago. Beckoning Chasm I wood say most of you on this board have nailed most of the puns, but I know you’ll uncork some more. Ken_Begg Fir sure. Ken_Begg Ugh. I pine for the days before we started all of this. bgbear_rogerh Groot is being knotty again. Ericb To get away from the puns for a moment … how the hell does this thing walk? It has a tangle of roots instead of feet and should be tripping over itself constantly. bgbear_rogerh put one root in front of the other, and soon you’ll be walking out the door sandra Where’s a pack of Killer Termites when you really need one ? Beckoning Chasm It looks like he doesn’t walk, he just sort of grows everywhere and spreads. His humanoid appearance is probably just for show (and for talking). bgbear_rogerh or a very determined beaver. Ken_Begg Yikes! Winner of the obscure reference of the day award. Ken_Begg Ha, I think that’s how he’s defeated! I think the guy calling him out whips up a batch of super-termites. The beaver idea is pretty good, too. Calling Asylum! Super Tree vs. MegaBeaver. Beckoning Chasm I don’t mean to bark at anyone, but I hope the puns here branch out before everyone leaves. Beckoning Chasm Wow–Groot has his own wikipedia page. And apparently his own Captain America shield. JReeder Groot has been re-imagined and used in the Marvel space adventures lately. The newest version of Guardians of the Galaxy, to be more specific. Along with Rocket Raccoon and some elements of the old ROM the Space Knight property that Marvel owns the rights for. Really fun stuff overall. Groot doesn’t have as much dialogue these days though. Marsden Was this before he came back as the rapper G root? Fish Eye no Miko “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” is obscure? But it’s one of my favorite of the Rankin Bass Christmas specials! cullen_waters Ah, man! Here was my time to shine! Puns a-go-go and I! MISSED! IT! I feel like such a sap. Ken_Begg I’d say quoting one line from one song from one R/B special is, indeed, fairly obscure. On the other hand, that’s the line that’s stuck in my brain all these years, which is why I recognized it. Flangepart If this took place in Japan, the JSDF would be yellin’ ‘Bonsi!’; GalaxyJane Thanks, now I have it stuck in my head too!
