What do you think of the pun(s)?

There was a pun?
It was one of the worst punishments I've ever had.
Ehh... kinda bad.
Ok, but not awesome.
HILARIOUS!

Oh, OK.  I thought my post was the one Ook was talking about.  Eerongal, PM me the two unseemly ones you removed, I didn't get a chance to read them.
I wanted to write something profound here, but I couldn't think of anything.

I think we are approaching the 50% pun threshold. Nobody trip on it, it's bad luck.

one of my all time favorite (anti) jokes:

Two muffins are in an oven. One muffin says to the other, "Man it's hot in here." The other muffin goes "Oh my god, a talking muffin!"

It's an anti-joke. The (lack of) punchline is meant to be non-sequitor, random, and cause confusion.

Edit: Another common example of an anti-joke is that standard "why did the chicken cross the road? to get to the other side" joke. You expect a comedic, pun-filled punch line, but get a common sense answer

I'm allowed to necrotize my own thread, right? For an awesome pun that happened today? No? TOO BAD! I MAKE THE RULES HERE! banned - modtitus Daaaaang.

I remarked to somebody that the reason that most people think that fractions are difficult is because of their christian upbringing. When they inquired why, I told them that it was because almost all fractions are unwholly numbers. Yeah, they just looked at me angrily. Then again, my problem may have been their being a math major.

I need a framework for this punchline, which I will work on, but for now, you just get how it happened. Solly. My story ideas involving catholic schools and picking up satanist chicks at bars look semi-promising though.

Maybe my puns require too much setup? I just like slipping the pun in there to see if people notice. Then again, I hardly ever make it through any of my punstories without laughing. Normal jokes aren't a problem. Hmm. I have much to think about.

A horse walks into a bar and the bartender says, "Hey! Why the long face?"
“It’s a fun tradition.”
“So was witch-burning,” Melody said.  “Unless you were the witch.”

A horse walk into a bar and and says, "Excuse me I didn't see you there."
The bar bars its teeth and kills the horse to feed her cubs.
