I was treated to a really poor pun on Tuesday, courtesy of David Mitchell and Robert Webb.

There was the one with the secret society bent on ensuring that everyone in the world was mildly drunk. The populous knew them as the Inebriati (a pun on the Illuminati, I presume) but they preferred to call themselves the Knights Tippler.

The worst one, however, was the one where someone discussed the souvenir shop at Auschwitz and the hotdog stand. "It was only a little hotdog stand in the car park. It's not as if there was a drive through with a huge sign saying 'Arbeit macht Fries'."

Any one care to share some other really dire puns with us?

That last one was a good one.

As for pun sharing, the best ones seem to happen to me on the fly.
Unfortunately for the reader, it also involves backstory:

I met a man who had been caught in a housefire when I worked at a bar. His burns, on one half of his body, while noticeable, were minimal, and he remarked that while it sucks, it could have been worse.

My response was (unintentionally) "Yeah, you don't look half bad!"

I'm always quick with a pun. They're only really good while on the spot, and I usually don't go to great lengths to remember my own work. XD

Just now on Facebook:


WomanOnMyFriendsList: Okay, here's a spanner in the works. What's the difference between self-centered and selfish?

Me: Selfish comes from the sea.




Bad, I know, but that's what it's all about. ;d

This seems like all the times that people want to post rants on Facebook and CONSTANTLY say "Your so stupid. Your such a liar."

I get so annoyed I feel like I might split at the seams.

I fucking hate you. :(










So, the other day my brother and I were discussing Joe Abercrombie's First Law trilogy (which is awesome, by the way), and I commented that I need to get his other book Best Served Cold someday. This started a stupid conversation about what the title could refer to -- Dara suggested revenge salad, I preferred a book about nothing more than gazpacho soup. (C'mon, it'd rock!) He kept trying to push that stupid revenge plot though, so I thought a compromise was in order. Dispatcho soup, anyone? ;d

^Your sig is a pun too isn't it? Walken to Mordor?


;d
Ever since my friend had all the digits amputated from his feet, I find him very annoying.
I think I might be lack-toes intolerant.

I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure...

My friend Max hates going up steep hills.
He's always been a bit of an anti-climb Max

I always wondered why the ball was getting bigger as it came at me..... then it hit me!

Bovine actors should be scene and not herd.

He had won every award and received every possible accolade: he was simply the best scarecrow ever. He truly was out standing in his field

My thought process: How's that a pun? It's a goldfish in... oh, it's a goldfish in a tank.

So today I was watching some old videos we'd recorded off the TV, and one contained this song. It has a few puns in it.
