    For a good while now, there's been a big uptick in the usage of puns on this site. Tons of posters have been getting in on the game, needling threads with their clever bits of wordplay.

    To all you beating me to punchline after punchline with your quips and wisecracks, I just want to say...

    How am I supposed to maintain a pun-opoly with all this stiff competition? Come on, it's just not going to happen!

    So take a bow, guys; otherwise, you'll call it curtains for good. Capiche?

    As a consumer, in the long run, a free market with ample competition is much better than a punopoly, providing better puns at lower cost and increasing customer satsfaction. Tl;dr: stiff ones satisfy me better.

    I think Gahars wants some sort of protectionism on puns to protect his punopoly for rivals who may provide superior puns at a lower cost. I presume he wants tariffs placed upon other members who use puns to combat these new threats.

    TL;dr: Gahars is a commie bastard.

    Papers? Silly peasant. Overlord Gahars requires no documentation for his decrees. His word is law.

    I did once infiltrate the rankings of the Catholic Church so I could call myself an impastor, so close enough.

    Oh, yes, twenty years dungeon, no trial, etc. You know the drill.

    I always figured you had a screw loose; this explains it.

    My screws may be loose, but my nuts, on the other hand, have been tightened.

    Which explains my irritability.

    Why would you allow that in the first place?

    It seems like you really need to learn when to bolt.
