Puns in the Codex
« on: April 22, 2009, 05:35:34 pm »
The writers of the Codex have slipped in some puns...

When visiting Rum you can visit not Lake Como but Lake Perrycomo (http://www.answers.com/topic/perry-como) walk along the Pia Zadora (http://www.answers.com/topic/pia-zadora) and eat at the Great Kitchens of Coquus Boiardius (http://www.answers.com/topic/chef-boyardee).

This is all in one entry has anyone found any others?

Speaking of Pemberly, I've wondered how one would write "Pride & Prejudice" in the Deryniverse.

The Bennetts would, probably, be an old Deryni family who had held onto enough land somehow to be considered gentry.  Beyond that, I'm not sure.   Would Darcy have some latent Deryni strain from some generations back that he was trying to suppress, which would explain why he acted all the time like he had a stick up his a@@?  (Sort of like Jehenna.)  What about Collins?  We can't make him a clergyman, as they can't marry in the Deryniverse; a lawyer or scholar of some sort?

A Deryni/Pride and Prejudice crossover?  I suppose it'd be less bloody than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.. Maybe.

Or what about "Emma" in the Deryniverse?  I can imagine a Deryni!Emma using her powers to manipulate her. . .erm. . .patients; which would make Knightly's rebukes all the more serious.

 Also, look up Rathold Lord D'or Alaric Morgan's wardrober  in Coroth who intermarried with Danna, Lady Corin and his daughter married William, Lord of Blass...
And yes, Robert Reginald was a great appreciator of puns....I know this from personal acquaintance. He also thought up some of the craziest causes of death. "The Musty Mewls" being one of my favorites.

I am afraid to ask what a Musty Mewl is. Some sort of poisonous vapors?

Perhaps Musty Mewls are a respiratory condition where the lungs become musty and the throat shrinks and the patient can only mewl like a kitten and only swallow liquids like a kitten? Or it is caused by spending too much time in musty rooms, where the reeds have not been changed in years?
I realized that I wanted to be Deryni, would have loved to be another niece of Uncle Azim, perhaps living on a Fianna vineyard.... but I'm a never wazzer

Varnar of Bassetdale, Saint
The patron saint of Deryni learning and healing and of the hounds of the hunt...
An image of Saint Varnar rising from the ground while surrounded by a pack of baying hounds was en-tiled into a superb mosaic by the Deryni master Vael son of Amiel... in the Church of Saint Varnar in Sestos.

I am wondering if KK's dogs had anything to do this.  I am envisioning KK's bassets baying at their megister, the great Deryni Healer of Grecotha.
