You may well be able to have fun with words, but eventually someone will get hurt (falling off their chair with laughter).

The feeling of adventure and revelling in history is indescribably good and tastes, surprisingly, like snow.

Time-travel napping sounds adventurous and thrilling, but not so much when you settle down for a quick snooze and wake up surrounded by robots and/or dinosaurs.
