With the rise in popularity of TheGame
decided that there needed to be a PunInquisition
, whose job it was to root out and punish those who make BadPun
s. This is not to say that they aim to squash all puns; nay, they encourage GoodPuns?
, which are examples of good behavior. Frequent victims include MartinPyne
Anyone who wishes the join the Inquisition must show aptitude at delivering justice at those who make BadPuns. Don't look for us; we'll find you.
- Sweet! So, if the Pun Inquisition is around, all I have to do is make a pun to summon Heather? That sounds very useful. I'll have to remember to make more puns. --MaxGibiansky
- You will suffer for your crimes. -- The HighInquisitor?
- Oh, so now you're high, too! Always knew you had some hippie in you. Embrace the love, man!
- OK, now death is entirely too good for you. No one insults my integrity like that and gets away with it.
- So far, evidence speaks to the contrary.
- Just wait until after break.
- If you need any help Herr. Inquisitor, you know where to find me - MichaelBraly "bored"
Now that the original PunInquisition has died, new people are encouraged to pick up the mantle and systematically punish those who choose to commit crimes against humor. Also, by decree of the high inquisitor, the word punishment is not a pun on anything. Not following this decision will lead to an inquisitor's arm and/or torture devices getting worn out entirely too quickly.
- Now that the original PunInquisition has died, new people are encouraged to make more puns without fear of retribution!
- Because there is no way zombies would return to Mudd and exact revenge on the punners. None. Especially not me.
- Yeah, none of us have been back to Mudd yet this year, even!
- Well, if you were still such a danger to punsters at Mudd, you wouldn't be trying to plant the seeds of a new PunInquisition. After all, you'll probably only visit sporeadically.
- More than anything, it's a loosening of the restrictions on the use of our authority; we used to clamp down pretty harshly on those who punished in our name without permission, because we had high standards. But now that we're graduated, the message is more important than the name, so unless someone else wants to step up and be supreme dictator, there's no point in enforcing invite-only standards.
