July 19, 2004 should I just drop the puns? Does anyone hate them?

(a deeper, darker question: have I gotten so far into puns that I'm skirting the line of insanity?)

Puns are part of the charm here. That's your schtick.

I like mocking your puns when they are mock worthy.

Keep 'em.

Er, I'd answer if you hadn't categorized it as a rhetorical question. :P

OK, OK, I'll admit it: I love the puns. I'd cry if you quit harder than I cry when you pun.

I second Zomby's statement. :)

Hmmm, I should have made this a contest. Had I done so, Deb would have won.

I'll keep the puns then. No, the schtick of me doing puns wasn't seriously in jeopardy, but too many people have been flat-out not getting them, and I hate that. Although, come to think of it, no one has yet said they don't like 'em, just that they don't get 'em.

As this is a rhetorical question, I feel no need to answer.

Keep the puns, just make sure they're good.

That's the problem. A person's puns are like his children: if their yours, you can't see their flaws.
So...if any of you ever think a pun just isn't very good, let me know. "Good" meaning "Bad", since the worse a pun is, the better it is...

This form of word play is of course considered the pun-ultimate in humor...second only to that silent killer ....mimes. And the world is all but united aginst those who walk the earth in silent attempts to humor folk....surely, you too are aginst land mimes!

Where's the fun in that?

Nathan, I think you should declare it oh-pun season.
