thread Competion time!*
i need a pun-tastic tag line for a "do not disturb" door hanger for a hotel in barbados.... we have a sample room review on wednesday and i'm low on inspiration. the general themes are the sea, greenery and rum

so far I have "we sleep with the fishes, hook us up later" (bad as it implies they are dead)

*no actual prizes

permalink right but
punny do not disturb hangers are awful
permalink awwww.

i doubt it'll make it to the actual room... more just want to put something with the brand logo in the sample room to keep the brand people happy... and they are americans so it's advanced humour to them.
permalink keep it simple and straight forward I say
no misunderstanding
permalink "Sshhhh... I'm trying to think of a pun for this door hanger"
Go a bit meta
permalink I do believe
you're not invited so Alistair can do what he wants?
permalink see you've got a roundabout quote in the CEN again
you'll get a reputation.
permalink at least it's not a letter
from the usual three or four tedious arseholes constantly arguing about brexit/labour/tories via the letters page.

Or Deborah Roberts being an arse.

Or Richard fucking Spendlove, sending the missves he sends to his facebook fan page (content mainly: racist, islamophobic and anti-semitic memes) with yet another dreary tale of how everything was better in the 50s and 60s.
permalink When men say it was better any time in the past
I always wonder if its because of things that are now illegal. Like marital rape, 16 year old page 3 girls, etc
permalink women knew their place
there weren't as many brown people around, those damn poofs kept their mouths shut of they knew what was good for them, etc.
permalink don't start on the crack
permalink well heroin was legal
and whoever says it was better had no power/influence at the time
permalink 'eel tired

"we ran out of turtle power
come back later"

permalink Something cricket related perhaps?
I offer no puns, but some Barbadian cricketers such as Gordon Greenidge, Malcolm Marshall or Joel Garner
permalink How about
We're currently Barbadossing about,
Please come back later
permalink Putting the doss in barbados
permalink Barbadoze
Mr Sandman
Feeling groggy
By fuck I drank a lot of rum go away
permalink It's a rum do and no mistake
Come back later once I awake
permalink Let us sleep, it's been coco-nuts this week.
Who was it taking about stats the other day?

I've just been introduced to bootstrapping.
permalink now just write it in Python
describe yourself as an ML specialist and get paid €€€
permalink fucking hell, I don't know/care what it means
I just type the words
permalink that's the beauty of ML
from VeryComplicatedLibraryMadeBySomeoneMuchClevererThanMe import bootstrap


permalink someone just tried to explain the logic of using an IPCW Cox model
he might as well have been speaking to a cat for all the good it did him.
permalink assert dominance by making up your own model
'I understand your thinking but wouldn't the Gremblefunk-Schlossinger Matrix be more suited to the underlying distribution? I mean, you're the expert, but that would seem the better idea given the third-order skew of the residuals?'

and they'll try and save face by pretending they've heard of it

NB: this doesn't work on the 1 in 100 stats people who aren't winging it
permalink Let me sleep, beach.
Do not disturb, doing nauti things.
permalink that's the best poem i've read all week
permalink print on a card, and put in a half rum bottle (preferably the flat type)
message in a bottle stylee. Hung on the door with sisal string.

Forget the puns, go with the theme.
permalink you can always wrap some more string around it as a bumper,
to stop the banging against the door from being too bangy.
permalink Ooo now that is an idea...
Unfortunately my search for rum in rural Poland has come up short.

But we can get vodka.
permalink Get flat vodka bottles and print up a made-up Rum label to stick on.
permalink or just take the labels off completely, which will work better
as a message in a bottle pulled out of the sea.
permalink closed with a cork obvs.
permalink 15 men on a dead man's chest
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
Leave me be for i need my rest
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
