Does "running out of bon mots from his storehouse of blazing wit" mean "at his wits' end"?

@oristarA,
Not really; it's not so much about being at his "wit's end" (a total lack of mental resources) it's more that he's simply run out of clever rejoinders but might still retain a limited ability to engage in a discussion.

What the hell is your problem with Farmerman? How many threads do you intend to start about what he posts? The numbers of grammatically crippled posts at this are legion. But you want to focus on one of the more intelligent members here. You're a mess.
