Puns Are Alive And Well In The Geek Community

Before we starting carping on the ineptitude of our navy, I think we should more carefully exsalmon the situation – they may not be solely at fault.

Whoever is responsible should have their head on a pike.

… and witness the punnery that results.
Heh.
