PONDEROUS, adj. British jokes.
2010 Update: Weighty, like logic on the lips of a man with a bat in his hand.
Those ponderous jokes are very boring. Guess that's why they call them British jokes.
Glad I'm early today. I can get boring too. Bye.
There's a fine line between ponderous and pounderous.
You can't beat the logic of a man with a bat.
Pip, pip and cheerio.

PONDEROUS, adj. these days, paying attention to more than one thing at a time.
Ponderous: Conan O'Brien got a ponderous settlement from NBC. WTG Conan..Fox hired Plain, I'm sure they'll hire you :)
Palin and O'Brien are laughing all the way to the bank. I think they've even hired full-time chauffeurs.
ponderous: Pamela Anderson's old breasts and many lectures I've been a party to as of late.
...logic on the lips of a bat with a man's hair in its claws.
Ponderous, I first see the word pond in it. With all the holes in our roads and sidewalks it is a ponderous world when it rains.
Oh woe !! What shall we do ???
I fear a poor lass drinks too much red whine. An unduly cruel world is hard to bear !!
And don't even get me started on potholes ...
Not often, Jim, but good morning and have a nice day.
Hobbes, in my case they're really hard to distinguish.
Right-o, Nessa. I suppose.
A fine quote, Karen. Willie, for one, agrees.
Or one thing, Quilly.
The competitions getting down towards my level, Thom. You're right.
I'm not sure ponderous means obtuse, Karen, but I can see the connection.
Cooper, you can imagine what a lecture by one of Pamela Anderson's old breasts would be like.
Icy, that works too.
Ariel, it's a ponderous world in my backyard right now.
Karen, I can't tell where anyone needs to get you started on anything.
Weight, weight, don't tell me.
