Hehe, good point... now as long as I don't refer to myself in the third person...

So if I'm Number One, where's Number Six? And what if I don't want to be known as a number but a free man? :)


I think the Narn bat squad comes by to visit you, I believe


Huh? I have the feeling that a bunch of before-my-time/I've-been-living-under-a-rock type jokes just sailed straight over my head.


The Prisoner, I believe. Though I'm not sure if "Narn bat squad" is part of that, or if they're mixing shows with that one.

Could be worse. I've gotten a Narn BATtalion and, when that proved insufficient against the puns, a Narn Orbital Artillery BATtery.

The narn bat squad's a reference to the full thrust mailing list... which at times has broken out into weapons-grade puns involving sheep and nuns, among other things. Only the threat of the narn bat squad was sufficient to calm them down...

Uh-oh.. do we get the choir singing "And the rock cried out" also?
The "referring to self in the third person" was a Bob Dole joke, and David's correct about The Prisoner reference :)

Yeah, the Bob Dole one was the only one I got (though I wasn't sure if there was somebody else that referred to himself in the third person that might be closer to the general topic of the puns here, since I didn't really get the rest or their connections).

The #1/#2/#6 bits are references to The Prisoner, a BBC miniseries. #6 is a spy captured by somebody and held in The Village, which is ruled by #2 and the mysterious #1....
