We found this information while doing fact checking for the next Saturday Morning column for Smirking Chimp, Op Ed News, and this blog, so you can’t expect us to let the cat out of the bag and tell you what the column is all about before we get to write it, do you?

No.

Posting a link to his blog seemed like a good idea, so we have shared that with you.

So if nothing else check back here where we will post a copy of the column after it has been posted at Smirking Chimp.

Triple Perfect Pun in English

March 3, 2009

A ranch in Texas needed a name and so the owners, three brothers, asked their mom for suggestions.  She told them to name the place:  Focus.  They asked her to explain her suggestion.  She said it was because focus was where her sons raise meat and also because when you focus with a magnifying glass, it is where the sun’s rays meet.

The story is regarded as having the only triple perfect pun in the English language.
