View Full Version : Fencing slogons/adverts

-3rd May 2003, 15:56
In my signature at the moment I have two quotes from members of the board which might be considered slogons. They tickled me pink, so I thought I'd start a thread to try and come up with some more.

The one's I've already seen are:

"Fencing. It makes your body squint." by rory


"Fencing. It does weirdly addictive things to your brain." by Muso440

How about some more adverts for fencing?

"Fencing. No matter how many swooshy noises you make it's not with lightsabres."

"Live by the sword, die by somebody who doesn't."

"Fencing. It keeps the neighbours out." (sorry, couldn't resist)

-4th May 2003, 12:37
He who lives by the sword...

... shall later be found at the pub!

Fencing - for the mentally deranged

fencing - ouch!

-4th May 2003, 16:41
fencing - ouch!

lmao! :grin:

-4th May 2003, 17:23
Lol @ the neighbours joke, Aoife :grin:

I am :transport

From the fencers at my club (myself included) I think nessyfencer is speaking for an awful lot of people :grin:

How about...

"Fencing. A sport with a point!"

-5th May 2003, 18:29
"Fencing. A sport with a rubber covered point."

is more accurate :)

-5th May 2003, 18:40
lol, true Mischa, very true.

-5th May 2003, 22:48
how bout :

Fencers always on the Piste

-5th May 2003, 23:29
lmao Psymon, but so so tru.

-6th May 2003, 07:02
Same sort of thing.
On the Piste again.

-6th May 2003, 10:57
Fencing. Always wear protection.

Fencing. Poncing about optional.

Fencing. The French confuses me.

-6th May 2003, 13:44
Fencing - so much easier if the referee fancys you.

-6th May 2003, 19:15
"Fencing. No you can't swing from the chandelier."

"Fencing. Welcome to the Dark Side."

"Poking somebody. The best way to end a disagreement."

(to 'Calgon' advert tune... you know the one "Washing machines live longer with Calgon!")
"Fencers' torsos live longer with plastrons!"

"Mask - £50, Jacket - £30, Breeches - £35, Shoes - £40, Weapon - £30, jabbing somebody with a metal stick - priceless. For some things there's mastercard, for others, there's fencing."

-9th May 2003, 06:03
"Fencers do it with a rubber on the end"

"Fencers do it with a three foot weapon"

"Sabruers do it without crossing their legs"

"Foilists like it with a whip"

"Epeeists will stick it anywhere"

"Sabre - Becuase you can't count on an Epee to break"

-9th May 2003, 10:58
lmao Moose!!!! :grin:

(nothing like some smut to brighten my day :) )

"Fencing. The polite way to kill those you hate." (thanks to my friend Mhairi)

"Sweat from places you didn't know you could. Fence."


-9th May 2003, 11:03
Fencing hurts the places other sports can't reach

Aoife you popular person empty your message box.

-9th May 2003, 12:24
I thought it was empty. I emptied it yesterday.

I'll just go do it again :)

-9th May 2003, 13:10
Fencing. any more 'to the point' jokes and i'll shove this foil right up your a*s.

-9th May 2003, 13:13
"Fencing. Simple. To the point."

(sorry, couldn't resist Laurence.... and I'd like to see you try over a modem :) )

-9th May 2003, 14:25
"Foil - What is the point, anyway?"

-9th May 2003, 14:39
Fencing getting your point accross.

-9th May 2003, 15:09
Life without fencing is like a broken foil . POINTLESS

-9th May 2003, 16:49
Now that was a really bad one Kenny

Fencing: pointing in the right direction.

-10th May 2003, 05:03
Sabres - Because it's rude to point

-12th May 2003, 00:29
morons the lot of you, did the bond film not put you off those puns with t's excessive use.

-12th May 2003, 03:22
Nay my dear chap, to be put off one's puns is akin to being put off one's Weetabix, it may happen for a day or so, but when push comes to shove you welcome them :)

-12th May 2003, 12:24
Don't get too upset, Laurence. It's just a bit of fun. Besides, it's not as if they started the conversation just to annoy you.
Admittedly, Aoife posted again to wind you up, but she didn't mean for everyone else to do the same.

There's only a problem if you choose to find it.

-12th May 2003, 12:56
Oh I did mean for that to happen! :)

Don't calm down Laurence, let him simmer. It's more fun that way.

And I agree with Moose, one can never be put off puns (and I haven't seen Bond yet, got to borrow it off my friend)

-12th May 2003, 15:50
Well I cant say I've seen the film yet either. Maybe one day.

Oh and another slogan

"Fencing - James Bond WON'T be doing it again any time soon"

-12th May 2003, 17:51
Your to do list/ watch and read list must be rather big now, Blues Brothere, Terry Pratchet and bond to name just a few.

-13th May 2003, 12:20
fencing - a sin of the fleche

-13th May 2003, 18:06
Oooooohhhh I like that one.

How about :

"Fencing - A Ballestra Too Far"

-14th May 2003, 08:06
How about:

start fencing today, don't waste a "seconde"

fencing or riding? Don't put the horse before the "quarte"

-14th May 2003, 17:10
yeah aoife, i really do think of nothing else these days other than the puns you came up with to annoy me. you really know how to get me going don't you. imbeciles.

-14th May 2003, 19:02
now now Laurence don't go POINTING the fingure at just Aoife that's not fair.

-14th May 2003, 20:00
Awww, now that was a bad one Hudson! :)

Laurence, you have to remember, that we spend clearly all day thinking of nothing but ways to irriate you with annoying puns. (noticed your 'title' thing this morning.... just a *little* above yourself, no? :) )

-14th May 2003, 20:03
just thought i'd stick up for you.
These daft puns are your FORTE.

-14th May 2003, 21:21
Lawrence above himself??

-15th May 2003, 03:26
Oh whats the point, I just quarte go on, must I get down on remise and pray. I'm upset and close to tierce. Is it such a foible to make a pun or two? Do you seek to foil our fun? Your insistence on Aoife's stopping is a bit off target as we are all to blame.

-15th May 2003, 07:45
Laurence is going to blow his top after that one, Duck and cover.

-15th May 2003, 08:14
Well, not if he has feinted already regretting that he ever engaged in this conversation. I must admit though, some of these puns are a little lame.



-15th May 2003, 08:32
You must admit that, although information is the prime reason for the board, have fun is a close seconde. I quinte see why anyone would would get piste off. You can't beat a few puns. I think its quite coule and Lawrence, although currently in opposition, will come to appriciate it in time. Anyway, I didn't start it so its not my volte and I don't see any reason to stop (h)it.

-15th May 2003, 09:29
Argh! No! Stop! ;)

-15th May 2003, 09:36
What's wrong? Is it making your fleche creep?

Argh! Pun overload.....

-15th May 2003, 10:15
I think there should be a prise (de) fer coming up with the best pun.

-15th May 2003, 11:10
careful your really going to piste him off soon.

-15th May 2003, 13:54
Please I quinte stand it anymore. my head is about to explode with all these puns.

-15th May 2003, 14:04
Why do you find it such a bind? I don't know what you're complaining a"bout"... These puns can only advance our knowledge.

-15th May 2003, 14:07
CUT it out, I just can't see the POINT of this anymore.

-15th May 2003, 14:14
Are you telling me you can't coupe with any more? Maybe you should go for some re-froissements (hmm, bit tenuous that one)

-15th May 2003, 14:20
I agree, this is going a bit remise. Let's just prÍt that this will all halt before it gets too feeble.
