How’s that for a thread title designed to get views?
A pal of mine, in my roto league, has his team named:
His last name is Urben.
So he feels that recent events (both past and apparently upcoming) make the name less than appropriate.
So he needs a new team name. It has to be a pun playing on his name, Urben.
Can anyone help a doper-pal here?
I got it! The Urben Legends!
This will be a short thread. Can’t top that!
Keep going now…keep working!
I knew I could count on you people!
::Kicks dirt blushingly::
Aw, thanks, TroubleAgain
Right, I’m here and I’m bad; what do you want?
Oh . . .a pun on “Urben”. Hmm.
Urben, Puns on: see Superdude, Writings of.
If memory serves, there was a Pope Urban. Probably too high-and-inside for a good pun, though.
Depends on how bad his team is… Urben Blight
They could be Sub-Urben
Fighting what since when?
If this is a baseball league, I recommend the Urben Shockers.
I’m guessing this is baseball or softball. Too bad. For basketball, soccer, volleyball, or tennis they could be Where’s Frankie?.
“Yeah, we already have a net.”
Ha! I crack me up!
-Rue. (who really did get an office volleyball team named this.)
I don’t know what a roto league is. Does that make me dumb?
Anyway, I really think Urben Legends is top-notch.
Here are a couple of others:
The Urben Jungle
Urben Outfitters (ha!)
How about Urben Cheese dip? (Herb and cheese dip)
Well, you request bad puns.
Another vote for Urben Legends.
How about the “T-Urbens”
or maybe the “Dist-Urbens”
How about “Ur-Bend”, where “ur-” denotes
‘primitive, original, earliest’,
and “bend” is
“An organized company of men; = BAND n.3; a party, a faction; a gang.” (OED)?
So the result is “the original band of men”. Wonderful as long as there are no women involved.
for the deja vu vote:
“Ur…ben here before haven’t we?”
By the way, are you going to let us know which was selected?
