Advice on forum language

Unread post by biffvj » Sun Mar 31, 2019 6:50 am

Why is it that forum users upon making a witty remark, a pun or some play on words in a post, then totally destroy their work by the use of "pun intended", "no pun intended" or some explanation of their self proclaiming literary genius? It's like telling a joke and then explaining the joke because you don't think anyone has the brains to understand your joke. Its actually a bit insulting to the reader.
Be a sport, make the pun (without explanation) and leave it to be found by the reader. It will bring a chuckle, instead of a sigh and credit to your own literary abilities.

Reminds me of the comedian who was continually telling blonde jokes during his show. Eventually a big blonde chick stepped up to him and said:- " If you tell one more blonde joke, I am going to take you outside and sort you out big time!"
"Ok, Ok" he replied, "if you insist. At least I won't have to tell them twice and or explain them."
