Zverev in a Stichy Situation

Posted by gauloises1 on July 19, 2009

Apparently Michael Stich will be playing doubles with Mischa Zverev in Hamburg next week.

Ethan Hawke’s really let himself go, eh?

At first I was annoyed about this, in a “go away, you’re old” sort of way. But then it occurred to me that it guarantees me at least one opportunity to make a Stich-related pun.

Lemons, lemonade. Or words to that effect having to do with sticks.

    Reading this made me laugh so hard, I got a STICH in my side…

    …sorry.

    Gee, and here I thought Tim Curry was looking pretty good.

    OMG that’s such a terrible pun. As a punishment, you shall be poked with Stichs.

  5. irefusetotellyou said

    Indeed it is made worse by the fact that I was pronouncing it “stitch,” not “stick.”

    Great.

    Stichs and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.

    I think it’s actually “shteek”. But any variation on the theme, however tenuous, will be considered acceptable as long as it gives rise to a hilarious pun.
