The Curse of the People Who Can’t Stop Making Puns



Maribou is a voracious reader who also likes to watch, stare at, and listen to stuff. Occasionally he makes stuff, too. They work in a small liberal arts college library, and share a house in Colorado with their husband Jaybird, three cats, and what looms ever closer to ten thousand books. She is identifiable as genderfluid, trans, farm-raised, citified, and bisexual, among a plethora of other adjectives.

  2. If you read the article (not that I recommend it), you’ll see that it’s about people who joke compulsively — only one if the reported cases involves puns. (That one, unfortunately, simply says “the man suddenly erupted in a ‘manic flight of speech’, compulsively recounting pun after awful pun”, but doesn’t quote any of them. ) Presumably the headline writer used “pun” as a form of clickbait because it, inexplicably, has negative connotations.Report

      The guy I know who jokes compulsively only does so when nervous.
      Of course, this is what prompted him to flee from speaking in front of a former POTUS.
      (too easy the jokes were just too easy…)Report
