Bang! Ouch! ....... [uses of 'bang', the word; funny/not funny; Short]


Bang! was what I heard when the chair leg hit my toe.
ouch! ! was what I said....as toe-swelling began to show.

Bang! -up-time was what I had at X-mas party for my job.
Ouch! ! was what I said next morning....as my brain did throb.

BANG! is a Theory of how our Universe came about.
OUCH! ! is Religion’s response....when its beliefs are placed in doubt.

It’s likely none of THOSE bangs will cause you to drop dead,
but dead you might soon be....if a gun goes BANG! beside your head.

    Fair enough, but how many people are going to shoot themselves in the head and say ouch? ? ? Only Wolverine probably and he is a cartoon character in the X-men film and tv series. However if the weapon was not pointed at you and instead recoiled into your face, then it would be ouch. As you have no gun, that's not likely to happen. (Report) Reply
