Pathological punning. Yes, really. Inability to stop making jokes & laughing at your own jokes is a brain disorder.

This is a link to a story on people who are unable to stop making jokes and laughing at their own (lame) jokes/puns and how this is a disorder of the brain. No, really.

Here

The man’s comedic compulsion was attributed to a stroke, which had damaged part of his left caudate nucleus, although an earlier lesion to the right frontal cortex, caused by a subarachnoid hemorrhage, may have contributed to the pathological punning.

I've posted about that a few times before.

And, yes, I am actually worried about it re/one of our regulars here.

The memory functions must've increased substantially as well to memorize all these jokes. Me, I can barely remember 3-4 jokes.

One is about a pirate and his brown pants.
And a couple of knock-knock jokes for the kids.

Has no one here ever seen a sitcom?

So, in the unlikely event that this little factoid is even slightly relevant, would that make this thinly veiled personal attack more or less acceptable? Vote to remove.

On of my favorite SF writers is Spider Robinson. His "Callahan's" series is pretty much one long pun after another. Plus robotic supermen and radioactive cockroaches. And time traveling Tesla.

As I age and my scrambled brains settle into something approaching oatmeal, I tend to forget all the good puns. I appreciate their repetition.

Oh, do posts have to be relevant all of a sudden? Relevant to what?

The truth is that this post and the link to that story is perhaps the most relevant thing on this message board today.

What's with your lack of reading comprehension? Brain disorder, perhaps?

In case you still don't get it: "personal attack"

Maybe I'll give that a look.

I love good puns, The trouble is, they're very far and few between.

No lack of reading comprehension, at all, here. But isn't that a personal attack in itself? You accusing me of having a lack of reading comprehension? How is that not a personal attack?

I wonder what's next in your constantly moving rule book of what's acceptable/relevant?

First it's a personal attack, then it's my reading comprehension that's an issue? What's next from you since those are baseless? I bet it will be A PERSONAL ATTACK.

Zoid' posted HERE on the SAME SUBJECT.

Was THAT relevant? I think so. Was it a personal attack? Somehow not.

PUN-ishingly few and far between, one might say.



It is what it is.

1. I love Spider Robinson’s earlier stuff. The more recent, not so much. The man’s had a hard life over the past 10 years or so. Top notch writer. For puns, look to the Callahan’s Bar books.

As advised earlier, you really need to take a break from internet forums, it's worrisome what they do to you.
