The black cat looked up from her saucer purring contentedly, her crimson whiskers dripping. Her Mousevice had worked!

Hammering I create a new thing that I call art, but the jury saw it as something quite ghastly and as a result I am dying now.

I grimaced at my ringing phone. The caller ID said, "Imaginary Number." I switched majors, but calculus still found me.

That's what you get for so negative with your (square) roots.

I keep doing the same problem. Distraction overwhelms me.
I flail about in the paper and death overwhelms me: paper cut.

The zombie had bit my left arm, the werewolf had bit my left leg. But Ted was able to amputate in time. I would be all-right.

I turn my back on you.
I lower my trousers, and bow as if to retie my shoes.

Full moon tonight, baby.

The creature was hideous & pale with an unblinking brown eye. It was so large, I couldn't miss. I kicked the shit out of it.

Everyone looked at the man at the top of the table with envious eyes. He had everything. All he could think "I'm so alone".

We'd like to think that; that they weren't mostly sociopaths. Here's a counter argument.

On my lawn is an ant hill.
It gets larger every time I mow.
The hill is no longer a hill.
It's a mountain where ants are kings.

Hmmm. This is either a scathing metaphor on the state of certain forums or a serious insect problem. Imagine, defying the proper gender roles for ants! :shock: :)

I tried to lure the viking into drowning, but he was too buoyant. You can lead a Norse to water, but you can't make him sink.

Why is it that puns cause people to face-palm, slap their heads, moan, and roll their eyes?

It may be that deep down we know that we have applied the intellect and imagination we are gifted with at birth, and diligently devoted these gifts to the perversion of human wisdom, thereby in a small way contributing to the downfall of human civilization.

Puns are all about momentarily ending life as we know it.
A reminder that we are made in God's image: If He had said, "Let there be Lite", we would be made of beer.

Must we have this argument again? We get it... Mud, meet Stick.

Puns, properly done, are the highest form of humor because they require a commanding grasp of both language and its foibles (in addition to all the regular requirements of a good joke), and they can package great insight and humor into a very concise form.

Children do not appreciate whiskey, oysters, or sex.
Dogs do not appreciate expensive dog food when there's perfectly good cat poop at hand.
Likewise, I guess not everyone is cut out to appreciate puns. But those of us who do are in great company: Homer, Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Gilbert and Sullivan, Richard Feynman, Joel Hodgson, JK Rowling, etc. etc. etc.

Remember: every pun is its own re-word.

Fair enough, my friend, if you are proud of Oscar Wilde.
But, as with the great checkers-vs-chess debate, there is a moral imperative that punsters be followed around by a guy with a snare drum and a whip.
