Do you know why you can’t explain a pun to a kleptomaniac?  She’ll always take things literally!

When it comes to my big dumb jokes on the MSP and our other shows, I find that puns are the most unpredictable.  Rob, who usually no-sells my humor, is susceptible to them, and a good enough play on words can even frighten Stephen into admitting that I’m kinda funny.  Though some call them the lowest form of humor, I think that role has officially been taken over by the memes your grandma posts on Facebook, leading us to today’s double entendre query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds Faithful Spoilerites that the technical term is “paronomasia” which sounds like a stomach disorder, asking: What’s your favorite pun?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.
