you have the Union Jack, and the rugby Union...

If only your Football Association was the Football Union too, and its major domestic event was the Cup instead of the League, you could have had the

Major FU Cup

:D

in lieu of any other suitable pun thread, i'll post this here:

we have some very nice italian stores in our locale. one of them is called alimentari, which basically means grocer's in this context as i understand it. now this word seems to bear a remarkable similarity to the name of sully muntari, who inter signed this season, yet i don't recall seeing any puns on this subject.

is mose losing his touch? surely the italian media have had a go?

well, basically yes

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/aliment?qsrc=2446

a shop selling alimentary (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/alimentary?qsrc=2446) products, i.e. food in general
typically nowadays a sort of one-window mini-market

then we knew him as Sulley, and we pronounce u as plain u (that is your oo :p)
this made it a bit far-fetched, I never thoutght about it
(I thought instead that in sicilian it would have resembled to "mount" as in "mount a horse", or a... woman :o)

had his name been Ali, maybe...

I'm glad Iallowed you to vent your lame name puns strain, which you usually restrain...
:)

Yup, that's a bit of a show-stopper isn't it? :D

Not to mention that Sulley has two 'l's and sounds different from the single 'l' in alimentari..

if this can console you, the "squid'n'peas" sauce I often cook, it's called "seppie e piselli" in italian, which is pronounced almost exactly as "sappy happy Sally"

:cute:
