The Steampunk Empire

The Crossroads of the Aether

Has this topic been broached before?

Do you have any good jokes to tell when in the drawing room, salon or saloon?


'One of the Queen's Magistrates, a Rabbi and a Blonde Can-Can Dancer walked into a bar.....'

(No insult intended to any of the above admirable professions.)


But really, is there much out there that is usuable or adaptable?


Here is one I recently adapted, having just received an early 21st Century version of the same over the Aethernet.


After being married for some 40 odd years, I a respected merchant-airship magnate, took a careful look at my wife, herself a brilliant cryptobiologist and commented:
'Forty years ago my Dear, we were living in a cheap flat, we had but a single tattered and leaky dirigible, slept on a pallet on the floor and listened to a tinny Gramophone, but I spent every night in the arms of a lovely budding  25 year old scientist.
Now we have a glittering brass floating mansion, a fleet of the finest airships, sleep on a mammoth, hand carved Madagascarean Rosewood bed and listen to a marvelous mechanized Ragtime band each evening. Yet I am now sleeping with a 65 year old woman. It would certainly appear, my Dear, that you are not holding up your end of things.'
Being a most reasonable woman, she replied:
'The solution is quite simple Darling. Go find yourself an attractive 25 year old woman and I shall be certain to see that once more you are living in a cheap flat, own a single tattered and leaky dirigible, sleep on a pallet on the floor and resume listening to that tinny Gramophone.
Would you care for more tea?'

Lol I don't have any to contribute but I'd love to hear more!
How many Steampunks does it take to secure a photon emitting unit?
I give up. How many?


Did I mention that the unit was hand-crafted and very SHINY . . .

Edison or Tesla ?
Then how many Steampunks does it take to secure a patent ?
It depends on how much the patent is struggling.
The answer is patently obvious.
... and we were waiting patently for your reply .
If you could just hold these wires and have a seat in that metal chair while your patent is being processed, it shan't take a moment...easy as a flip of a switch.
