Dis-Gracepoint Banner Contest

Hello disgracepoint readers,

It’s been a while that John Korea has been the face of disgracepoint (on our home page banner).  And we wanted to see if you had a picture that you would like to submit as a possible banner.  It doesn’t have to be a personal picture of someone from our church.  It can be a scenery, it can be a sinking ship, a hog-dogging skier who is messing up, etc..  One request for this picture would be that it can be seen in a very thin dimension, as you can see from above. 

If you have something like this, please email it to me or Roy Lo.

Pun With Gracepoint: A-mace-ing action

Setting: At the 'Celebrate Freedom' Christian concert in Dallas, TX. In between bands, members of 'Medieval Times' took to the stage with a display of medieval fighting, wielding implements of war such as axes, swords, and maces.

James: Wow, those guys are pretty good. It almost looks real.
Pundit1: Yeah. Don't you think they axe so well?
Pundit2: Well, sword of.

English Patient: Penmanship

Setting: watching a men's volleyball game during the Olympics

English Patient W: Wow, they have great penmanship!

Friend T: Don’t you mean… sportsmanship?

English Patient W: No. I think there’s another word that means “sportsmanship”, but it starts with the letter “P”. Isn’t there a word like that?

Friend T: Umm.. not that I know of. (laugh)

English Patient W: Really! There is such a word! Hey, sister E! Isn’t there a word that starts with “P”, but means sportsmanship?

English Patient E: No, not that I can think of, but it’s okay. I can kind of see your confusion. Penmanship kind of sounds like a real word.

Pun With Gracepoint: It's the Real Thing

Setting: 'On-the-Road' TFN Bible Study in Dallas, TX. After the Bible study, group games commenced with King-Kong Shower.

David: Now we'll be going from 'mono' to 'stereo' - that means TWO people you have to pay attention to each time.
Student: Woah! That sounds hard!
David: I'm sure you can handle it - and it's much more fun.
Pundit: Definitely. It's stereo way to play.

Pundit: I guess we'll just have to see if he shell eat it.

A Picture Worth One Word: Hurting

This happened a couple of months ago in Gracepoint Austin. Please don't click on the picture to get a closer look at who the driver was. How many Gracepointers does it take to drive a truck into a ditch? Nine. One to drive, and eight to look at him and shake their heads.

Joys of Teaching: Misdiagnosis

Context: Ms. K's class. Having a discussion of Shakespeare's Othello. Finished a scene, during which the protagonist has an epileptic seizure.

Student 1: Ms. K, what's an epileptic seizure?

Ms. K (thinking to herself...uh oh...): Uh...well, there's a neurological condition called epilepsy, and because of abnormal or irregular brain activity, a person can have seizures...

(Student 2 talking excitedly and in hushed tones to Student 3.)

Ms. K: Student 2, is everything all right? What's going on?

Student 2 (looking really worried): My cousin has epilepsy. I didn't know he had seizures and stuff. I just thought he had trouble reading because he saw letters backwards and switched around.

Ms. K (beat, stifling a giggle): I don't think you have to worry.

Pundit2: I agree. It's fintastic.

English Patient: Unfortunate Names

A bunch of brothers were talking, and particular brother whose last name is Park said, “Do you know that when I was born, I was almost named Mark? That would have been pretty bad… Mark Park.”

The rest of the brothers started to giggle and chuckle, but English Patient Brother Y started to laugh really loud. He was laughing as if this was the funniest joke he’s ever heard, repeating the words, “Mark Park! Mark Park! That rhymes!! That would have been so bad! Ha ha ha ha!” Other brothers didn’t think it was that funny, but it seemed that Brother Y found it hilarious that someone would have had a rhyming name.

Then something dawned on one of the brothers, and he asked Brother Y, “Wait a minute! What’s your full name?”

Brother Y answered, “Yang Wang.”

Pun With Gracepoint: You "should" sea this

Thank you, Dis-Gracepoint, for hosting Pun With Gracepoint at this site! We are honored and look forward to many years of humor together. Here's to the many laughs we will one day look back upun.

On to our first post at Dis-Gracepoint Online:


Today I have the pleasure of introducing the first of what will hopefully be a regular addition to Pun With Gracepoint - 'Picture Punfect'! A photo of a pun-ny situation, or a pic of a great pun somewhere out in the world.

And we are honored to have one of our greatest fans grace the frame alongside our first 'Picture Punfect' entry - Pastor Manny! (he says he doesn't like our puns so as not to let our heads get too big, but we know that he just loves our puns. that's why he shakes his head and lets out a loud sigh everytime he hears one. yeah!)


Without further ado:
- Our recent trip to Corpus Christi was a very fruitful one for puns. We'll be sharing more of them over the next few days, but here is a puntastic pun we found at the Texas State Aquarium, near the otter pund:


I know P. Manny doesn't look too enthused, but I'm confident that inside he is brimming with joy! And we all know how happy he must be that his two favorite websites have now merged into one!! Yay!


Dis-Gracepoint Announcement: Merger

Hello Disgracepoint readers,

During these tough economic times, sometimes we need to cut our costs and merge businesses that overlap in their core products. We have come to know of a site called "punwithgracepoint" (http://punwithgracepoint.blogspot.com/), which has been trying to impose their own brand of humor (word puns) to the rest of us.

Some people found the word puns to be hilarious, but I can tell you now: None of the English Patients found that site to be funny at all. In fact, they hardly found it understandable. How would you like it if your friends told you, "Oh my, check out this site... it's so funny! But it's written in a foreign language that you don't understand." No, you wouldn't like that at all.

So for the sake of Sister G's and Brother Y's among us, disgracepoint has decided to do a friendly merger with punwithgracepoint writers, who are from Gracepoint Austin. So from now on, these anti-English Patient writers will write into disgracepoint. So let's welcome them, despite their formerly exclusive form of humor. And I want to encourage all of us to comment on their word pun humor, especially the English Patients among us...
