So for 50,000 years men and women existed in different parts of the world?  And even after they got together, it took them 20,000 years to figure out how to make babies.

Sounds legit.  The Bible has some really long living people in it, ya know.

And small children, for whom puns are a valuable exercise.
And children's book authors, who help show children how puns work?

Language play of any kind is a completely legitimate game for everyone who works with small children.

My, my, but someone seems a little defensive about puns.
Mostly because I like to read classic children's lit and watch cartoons. I won't deny the groan reflex, but I believe in art. And puns are one form of art.

Plus I am not certain a groan at a pun is a universal constant. I think I read somewhere Japan has a great love for puns. But I need to read more about this.

You seem to be a believer in many things which you have not researched.
Yes, a flaw I admit to freely. :lulz: I do promise to research more fully in the morning after sleeping a few more hours.

But as to whether I'm a child? I'm 26 years old. Have I, er, been overstepping obvious bounds?

I'd say there's a difference between a well constructed effort (the memes, a sketch, one of Dok's lengthy set-ups (the Soul Coughing one you did a while back was GENIUS)) and a thread that's just one hastily thrown pun after another.

Fuck, for some reason Facebook won't let me see the rest of the conversation. But this is how it ended:

Quote
G: already crossed

N: Because I'm not into decoding anyone's half-assed attempts at allegory. I'm  not a fiction editor, and I don't care about your ideas unless they are eloquent and compelling. I have a family to raise and other shit to do. Don't waste my time. Sorry if that hurts your feels

G: I don't think you would even know what you were looking at.

N: You tell yourself whatever you need to

G: I don't mean that to hurt your feelings

N: Your shit just ain't clever, sorry.

G: I'm not trying to be clever

N: Yeah, you're trying to be deep. I give you two fingers of depth. It's just... not. It's some kiddie shit. You can't even explain it because you've got your head so far up your ass of convinced it's deep. You're like those guys who call themselves philosophers.

G: You tell yourself whatever you need to.

N: "Oh, you just wouldn't understand". You can't even come up with your own one-liners, you're that unoriginal.

G: Your mind is already made up

N: Wow. Boring.

G: You really don't want to know

Fantastic. Where did you find that guy?

Pretty sure he came out of Facebook TDS.

I kind of loved how he escalated from "you've never told me about your worldview" to "YOU JUST DON'T WANT TO UNDERSTAND". He never wanted a dialogue, he was just proselytizing.

I am particularly enamored of "This venereal disease of the soul".

I felt like throwing myself into the River out of sheer self disgust.

But there's no water in our river, so it would probably hurt.

You can actually swim in our river now, you know.

This ain't my first rodeo, lady!  :crankey:

I reserve the right to occasionally crack juvenile jokes.  Puns, toilet humor, etc.

It is infuriating when done constantly, though.

It's really just a matter of degrees, there's no absolute cutoff. Wordplay and childish humor is funny sometimes, it's just not funny all the time, and not only is there a lot of in-between area, but it becomes quickly tiresome and kind of sad when that is the only humor of which someone is capable. At least if they're an adult.

OHMY GOD NIRVANA IN MAJOR KEY SOUNDS LIKE THE PIXIES. Like, holy fuck. I was a huge Pixies fan and I never noticed.

Well, they never tried to deny it, so I guess it shouldn't be that surprised.
