Puns. you either love them, or hate them. From time to time I appreciate a good pun, but I'm curious as to what you all feel about puns.

Hate hate hate. Hate. My dad says them all the time, and you have no idea how annoying it gets. I've tried to get him to stop, but it's like he's infected the world.

It...sort of depends. An occasional pun is alright and -- at times -- even fun, but when it's nothing but puns (try reading the Alice books and you'll see what I mean) it gets tedious after a while. >.<

Might I ask what is a pun?

I hate puns... especially the really, really, annoying ones we get told in Physics as titles for our worksheet. :(

Might I ask what is a pun?

It's a play on words usually for humourous effect.

I'm indifferent. I really don't care much for them, don't find them funny really, but they don't bother me either, I just look over them or even often don't notice.

I LOVE puns, and I say them all the time (yes I am aware how annoying they are).

You could say Im quite punny.

The puns I hear every day are never funny, but rather stupid in an intentational way so that you laugh more. The puns I've heard or read in English are usually just bad.

I actually find puns really funny, Its good when you know something, like pokemon, and you hear a pun about it and it can make sense to you

it depends,
If it is a hilarious pun I'll like 'em.
The same when other people don't get it, and you do XD
But Puns that are too chilish for my taste I think are just lame :/

I'm cool with puns. They're sometimes funny. But if I've heard it before I might only chuckle. However I do agree that exessive puns are annoying.

There are puns that just induce an 'ugh...'

But I've managed to sit down and watch and entire season of Digimon.... twice. They make puns pretty much every single time the attack. Yeah it's annoying, but it's tolerable for me. Other shows like Kids Next Door, Numbuh Two ruins the entire thing for me >>

My pastor always makes really cheesy puns.

I'm the only one who laughs. xD

My love or hate of puns depend on the pun itself. I don't mind good puns at all, it's just the really cheesy ones I can only get so much of. And if something's just filled with those cheesy puns, I'll go crazy. I haven't seen anything like that lately, though.

Love `em! I use them all the time, except when I say them, it just sound corny.

I like puns, but I don't go bursting out laughing if they are funny.

December 14th, 2007, 7:24 PM
It depends on the pun, really. If a pun is just really groan-inducing, you just can't laugh at all. However, if its something that's clever or unexpected, it's good. I just can't seem to laugh at most puns. If I laugh at any pun at all, it would have to be absolute genius.

I love Puns!!! Esspecially the lame one's. (well most of them basically). They're always so stupid that I laugh at them. People have to know they're saying it though, cause then it's not very interesting.

It depends, sometimes they can be really funny! :3
But, other times you just think, what the hell? Because sometimes they are just stupid :[

December 15th, 2007, 6:29 PM
some are actauly so corney thet're funny so yeah some are good others are just like... whatever...

December 17th, 2007, 8:16 AM
It depends on who the person is. If it's the class clown or whatever, it usually gets a weak laugh or an eyeroll from me. But if it's one of my friends, I just give them a deadpan look. :B

So, I picked "Indifferent".

I don't mind puns,especially if they're clever =]
If the usage if overwhelming,than I'll get irritated e.e;
