Re: The New Joke Thread

Or the science nerd who was an irritatingly chronic punster.

His friends locked him in the basement and said...."make a lingual joke of this"

"0pun the door" came his reply

It has been said that puns are the highest form of humor.

Where would we be without hypothetical questions?

Nice! At least rhetorical questions don't require a response, do they?

I know this post is a bit off topic of jokes but for anyone making that criticism, laugh at me for even asking the question below.
+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=

Thanks for the hints- Now I get the punch line.

When I read the joke the 0K had rolled to the next line on my screen so I didn't notice the zero was different from the capital "Oh" elsewhere on the page.

I wish there were a way to force my computer to slash its zeroes () automatically without inserting special symbols so the difference would be obvious.

Any supergeeks out there have a solution?

Dreaming Yachtsman, start a thread about this, I'm sure you're not the only one. [But it would ruin the joke.]

No more confusion! No joke!
Zeroes and Ohs shall forevermore remain separated in my Word docs (until my computer crashes again and has to be replaced. {Now THAT is NOT a laughing matter!!}).
