For future reference: doesn't this thread more properly belong in the "Wordplay and Fun" forum?
Yes. I'm glad you said for future reference; we can't blame new people for not knowing the ins and outs of this place right away. We made an effort for a while to keep this category set aside for serious discussion; it was never 100% that way, and has slipped considerably in recent times. We still may have members who would prefer to have one place where they know they can find some "meat" (sorry, Anu), for lack of a better term. If anyone has strong feelings one way or the other, feel free to post or to PM me.
EDIT--this post is in no way intended to stop the thread--the fun's begun, so why not continue it?

So I thought about it for a while and said... "OK, how about a little head".

So, make up your own joke. I actually saw it first as a written joke, so which came first?

Simultaneously, my dear, simultaneously.

Another example of aural vs. visual pleasure? (cross-thread)
