Linkable Halfbakery Pun Libraries

Oh, the humority …
  (+5, -3)

A Halfbakery category that includes" ideas" that contain nothing but puns; cheese puns, custard puns, every damned pun …

Then, when a user posts an idea they can prepend or append #include<CHEESEPUNS.HB> to forestall the inevitable pain and misery by indicating that all possible puns have already been included.

       My cat contends that's not pawsible.

       You're only posting this because you're no good at puns and you're jealous. Why stop at puns though? Have a complete Library of Standard Encoded Responses (LOSER) so that you can do away with comments altogether and users just post a series of hash tags against the idea.

       Ideas like this deserve pun-ishment I think.

       [+] Such a header file might provide a series of #DEFINE macros that automatically replace key words with their pun-equivalents at compile-time, obviating the need for users to have to trawl through on-line word-lists searching for suitable pun-material. Write once, pun-everywhere.

       Would these libraries be o-pun-source?

       There's an old joke in which the protagonists know each other's jokes by heart. So they just number each one, and when one blurts out, say "17," the other breaks up laughing.
sqeaketh the wheel, Oct 30 2012

       I think the joke is that one old man says "17" and no one laughs and then another old man says "17" and everyone falls about laughing. Someone watching this says to him "How come everyone laughed when you said "17" but not when that other man said it?", to which he replies "Well, it's the way I tell 'em".

       Well, I fall about everytime somebody says 'eighth'...

       Smelly male, play on words?

       ... And the one where the new guy comes in, and yells out '32'. Everyone bursts out laughing, because they've never heard that one before.

       I've never heard that one before.

       Can't remember which halfbaker posted this on farcebook but;   

       If you think these puns are bad you should sea mine.   

       Sure it's fine for puns that have already been made, but you can't use a header for something that has never been written. You just won't come out ahead.
