I read today that the rib of Joan of Arc is actually not her rib at all but from an Egyptian mummy.  Well that is just more proof that Darwinism is not true!

Add this to the Piltdown man, those funny moths and you've got bullet proof evidence that the Theory Of Evolution on its death bed.

Sorry to bring bad news.

Darn Jeanne d'Arc! How can I continue my PhD if everything I've learnt so far is wrong?  :(

Bummer.

Well, I guess I have no choice but to try and get myself unbanned at UD.

But then, I hear her ribs were mighty tasty!

I don't have much of an appetite, thank you.

Oh now that's a cracking English/French joke, and it's gonna be wasted because I cannot laugh due to an almost epic hangover.

These sort of comments, they always end in flaming. Anyway, a good grad student should have a burning desire to complete his or her PhD. After all they have a massive stake in it.

Thanks a lot Kristine.  I was finally almost out of therapy, and now this.  Sure, make fun of the caveman.  I'll just bet this makes you feel human.  You Sapiens sapiens are all the same.  (Unless you're a blog owner, or blog poster on UD, then you're sub-caveman on the old intellectual  totem pole.  Or, unless you have a BIGG BUTT, or like a BIGG BUTT, which I do not, but Dembski and DaveScott do.)

Excuse me while I go extinct.

Arden,

Dammit! I love a good veal.

Jeannot,

You get the joke now right though? Maybe it's an English thing. On T.O. with the Wilkins et al a good pun cascade could go one for what seemed like years! ;-)

It sure ain't French.
I know that Jeanne d'Arc was burnt, of course, but I still don't get it.

Jeannot,

You present me with a quandry! Explaining a very stupid and puerile play on words is probably more painful for you than me! To that end:

See here for more info. Also here.

See here for one of the best exponents of the genre.

Remember: they were not GOOD jokes. This is probably why you don't get them, they were simply too bad to be worth getting. The general idea is that one forces phrases or words into sentences to humorous effect because these words or phrases bear some reference to a previous word or phrase or concept. So because Jean d'Arc was burnt alive at the stake, many puns using fire/burning terminology can then be made.

For example the first pun I made up thread was about Waterloo, Dembski repeatedly declared that evolutionary biology had met it's Waterloo, this thread is about the forgery of a famous French skeleton, the Piltdown man was another famously forged skeleton often brought up by creationists, thus because there is a French fake skeleton banging around I can declare a Dembskian Waterloo.

You posted that you would having trouble completing your PhD due to this fake skeleton. I of course assume this is a humorous remark. Thus combining this remark with comments about fire/burning I can continue the hilarity!

Like I said, I never claimed they were GOOD jokes. I'm off to commit comedy suicide.

Louis

That I didn't get. Fingers burnt? I know what it meant for Jeanne d'Arc, but for a graduate student...?

Jeannot,

Ah I see, then please forgive me for boring you so intensely. I admit I was surprised by what I (obviously mistakenly) thought was your question and should have thought about it before replying. No offence intended, and none taken I hope.

Do you know the idiom/expression "getting your finger burnt"  (i.e. Meaning that one has been harmed/punished or suffered some loss (usually financial) due to some event)?

Louis

I didn't know the expression. Now I understand.

Thanks.
