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.

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

Oh god. When it's a literal stretch. Painful.

In case you want to do research, the phenomenon this thread was originally about is called the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

We've only been discussing that very thing since 2008.  It's a good thing we had a genius to wade into us dunces and tell us about Dunning-Kruger.

Just trying to help. At least I'm correct, unlike quite a lot of people. But then again, everything is true, even false things.

You just busted my irony meter.

And here we have an excellent example of it in action.

The funniest thing about it is that Johnny mentioned Dunning & Kruger on page 1 of this thread. :lol:

I'm enjoying this thread quite a lot. :lol:

On-topic, I have another book to add to my recommended reading list about wrongness: it's called Mistakes Were Made (but not by me) and it's about the cognitive biases and self-deception we develop to reduce the cognitive dissonance of being wrong; the phenomenon that allows us to be blissful dumbasses and complete hypocrites while secure in a comforting belief that we are absolutely right and beyond reproach.
