Uncertainty

My Twitter #punday was: Bow-maker starts to chop down a magic tree; tree offers to grant wish-power, money or fame-to stop. Man: “Hey yew, leaf me a loan.” #punday

Now, I really wanted to work bowyer into it, as in:
Tree: Bowyer sure predictable!
Or something similar. But 140 characters a cruel mistress makes.

Now, I did hit upon a pun without a contrived situation today. @agentwool observed that the parakeet, Hugin, would stop playing with the toys in his cage once you turned to observe him. So I said, “Well, that’s the Hugin bird uncertainty principle at work.”

That’s a good day’s work right there.
