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.
Yeah, I can't think of such a word either, but I'm sure some people with good pun-manship could make up one.
Somehow, punsters have taken over disgracepoint comments.. so that puns are now showing up even in English Patient posts. What's going on?
Yup, it sure seems like the punsters are taking over this site!
You should of seen the "handwriting" on the wall.
I hope you can be a good sportspun about it, Daniel
I am in favor of the punsters going back to having their own site!
Maybe these English patients were taught by their grammars and grampars.
Where do you get "P" when thinking of sportsmanship?
At the end? Sportsmanship spelled backwards?
Association with "poor" as in "poor sportsmanship"?
Playership? Association with sports "player"?
freethesaurus.com listed "probity: complete and confirmed integrity."
There. That'll work. I can stop obsessing about finding P-synonyms to sportsmanship.
this is a combo hit
