The World's Worst Punch Line

Think of the worst punch line you know. Here's the first one I think of: a man walks into a bar and says "ow, that hurt." Actually, if you can beat that one, I'd be interested to know it so I can add it to my repertoire of terrible jokes: post it as a comment. But I bet nothing you can think of even compares to this punch line:

Daylight Savings

Random thoughts like this one creep up on you out of nowhere around midnight. See, it's like one of those jars you put your spare coins in. But instead of coins, its daylight. That reminds of me of this song by Jim Croce:

Every time I see the title "Hamlet," I immediately think of two things. The first is ham. The second is omelet. So I decided to finally act on those initial impulses I had so long tried to repress, and portray the proteggonist as a ham omelet, putting a whole new culinary twist on Shakespeare's famed eggsistentialist treggidy.

TAs, the Bestowers of Partial Credit

By day, the TAs in Johnny's Multivariable class seemed helpful and supportive.

By night, it was an entirely different story.

Junior, A Little Hoarse

Speaking of which: lickystickypickyme:
The little horse was born to Paul and Kay Goessling, who specialize in breeding miniature horses, but even for the breed Thumbelina is particularly small: she is thought to be a dwarf-version of the breed. At just 60 lb and 17-inch tall, the five-year-old Thumbelina is the world’s smallest horse. 
Thumbelina has symptoms of dwarfism, which makes her a "miniature of a miniature," as this article puts it. Her breeders' main pursuit and hobby in life is the production of smaller and smaller horses, which in my opinion makes Thumbelina a "hobby horse," literally.

Roll over, Baby Mozart. It's Baby Plato time.

Tidbit of random information: the baby mozart effect, which was proposed by researchers in 1993, has been discredited. The following excerpt is from "The concept of the Mozart effect had a strong cultural impact when it was first posited, resulting in the sales of a lot of "Baby Mozart" CDs. In 1998, Georgia Gov. Zell Miller proposed spending $105,000 to buy a Mozart CD for every baby born in the state. Florida mandated state-funded day care centers to play an hour of classical music a day." However it seems that Bach and Pearl Jam, or in fact, any noisy stimulus, is enough to make your baby smarter.

Mocking the Mockingbird

The nice thing about online audiences is that there is no collective groan.

Anyone who meets any one of the following criteria:

And for all of the visual learners out there, I have prepared a diagram that concisely summarizes my main point thus far:

Why did I choose to start this blog? I don't know. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I personally love terrible puns and worship silly drawings, and my hope is that you can get some enjoyment out of them too.  Let the pun begin.
