    When they outlaw puns, only criminals will have them. That will make them criminally bad puns. Sadly there is no way to stop a bad pun, as there is no such thing as a good one.

    It depends. All puns are punny but not all are really punny. Good puns are good pun but.
    It also depends on how you feel about self-flagellation.

    I have to ask Art this: Is this really the right thread to bring up an image of the Dalai Lama trying to sleep with a mosquito?

    On my part... it was just a bit of an outburst. Don't know what inspired it. Maybe psychedelics would help...
