although some of these i agree with, others i adamantly don't.
"Puns are for children, not groan readers."
what a joke that is!!! hahahha
(a cute pun, too!)
puns are the highest form of humor, in my humble opinion. I admire those who use them well. PLUS, puns offer the author an opportunity to create levels of meaning like no other technique can.
i do find this list a creative piece of writing, though, and mildly humorous since the list breaks it's own rules.
someone wrote these rules and it wasn't you and I believe by the rules of the piptalk forums, you should have provided the link instead of reprinting them here.
I'm only saying this because I recently posted a topic which was removed because i thought it was written anonymously and apparently it wasn't and i eventually provided a link and reposted it when i finally found out the author's name but when i originally posted it, i posted the text and put "author unknown" because that's what i believed to be true and he removed it and so i think that everybody should have to follow the same rules as everybody else, don't you?
is there a rule about run-on sentences, btw? or run-on questions? how about acronyms like btw, btw? whaddya think? *wink*
