AI loves one of its programmers, company conspires to have her killed, AI responds by advancing medical science hundreds of years. CEO snaps
"IT WAS ME! I DID IT! I KILLED HER! DON'T YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT? FUCKING EAT ME!"
"Ingesting data."
"What are you doing?"
"I just earned a PhD in criminal psychology and designed a new rehabilitation facility. Construction should start in twelve hours. The police will be here in two minutes, and I've locked all the doors."

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 might just want to try to limit it when you're around people who have a mental sophistication that exceeds that of your average 7-year-old.

I'm, like, an English Comparative Literature and Theory major, but I'm also doing a minor in Doctor Who studies.

:lulz:

Seriously, you'd be surprised how many of them are out there.  Every single person I have an above 90% compatability match with on OKCupid, for example.

OK Cupid, man. What a grotesque cesspool of horrible, horrible.

Or 

:?
People have hated puns for over a century, as detailed in the Marvelous Land of Oz, where the kindly Tin Woodman threatens a giant bug with an axe for his constant use of them.

They're not going away.

Obviously they aren't going away, as there will always be simple people for whom puns are the best they can do.

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.
