And small children, for whom puns are a valuable exercise.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

Often incoherent. Tends to ramble on about various topics.
Hopes to get beyond that.

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.

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.

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.

Serious question -- forgive me if I have asked this before -- are you a child?

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.

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.

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?

No, I just wanted to know whether it would be appropriate for me to treat you more gently. I tend to be nicer to children when they say things that are poorly thought out, because, well, they're children.

Nigel, you are one cold shade-throwing piece of work.  Masterful, one might say.

What pisses me off is when puns require the word to be changed.  It's crap, even when it's a one-off.
