It's time for a pun thread. (Or pun jokes, or pun riddles, or something approaching punny.) I know, I know, some of you think that Cappi has the pun market cornered, but that's because you don't hang out with me often enough.
Anyway, as with all 'forum games', this thread is in the Spam section, which means that posts here do NOT affect your post count. You can't become the highest poster on our forums just because you know a bazillion puns! (Although, if you know a lot of pun making people, that could help.)
So, what sets this pun thread apart from every other pun thread? Well, I'm glad you asked, invisible person that didn't really ask anything, and I'm just sort of imagining you for the sake of illustration...
The person who makes the current pun will set the TOPIC of your pun! So...You can't just come up with random puns about any old (or new) thing, you have to actually create a pun on the subject matter at hand!
They say that people who can come up with puns off the top of their head are more intelligent than most, (or maybe they said cornier, or it's possible they said goofier, you think maybe they actually said weenier? I propose they meant smarter and better looking, although, they could have meant attention deprived, or maybe attention deficited, or who knows really! What was the question?) This thread is your chance to prove you can come up with puns yourself! Not just pull them from some puncyclopedia! (See what I did there?)
So, here's an example of how this would work:
Someone gave me the subject of science...
Me: I'm reading a book on gravity, I can't put it down!
New Subject: OVERWATCH!
Random Punny Forums User #324891: Where did JunkRat go after the explosion?
New Subject: Star Wars!
You get the general idea...*Thanks to Cpt Merika for the idea to create a pun thread of some kind, even though he didn't start the thread himself because he claims I just do it better. Seriously, he said that. I blushed.
So, I guess there's little more to do than get this partay started, eh?
My pun/punny joke/punny riddle to start things off today:
What do you call a snobbish felon going downstairs?
A condescending con descending.
