....I see what you did there. And now I do hate you, but all will be forgiven next week.

Can someone explain the Ninja Gaiden one? I didn't see anything on the cover that had anythign to do with "Guy Dan". Or is he just being a troll with that one?

It's a pronunciation thing. The cover is from the Ninja Gaiden series. For a long time, "Ninja Gaiden" was pronounced "Ninja Guy-DAN", with the accent on the second syllable. I think most younger people use the more correct (true to the Japanese pronunciation) GUY-den, accent on the first, short "e" sound in the second.

But for those of us who used the older and more mangled Americanized pronunciation, "Guy Dan" is a play on words.

I LOVE puns

Lol! I'm actually laughing a lot! XD

I love those puns, these infamous jokes are my favorites ever. Good one shamus!

I think I called it 'Ninja Gay-den' till I was like 18. I wasn't being funny. I'm just stupid.

That was puntastic! *shoots shamus*

What you did

it's there

and I see it.

Why would you ever release something so horrible onto the world...

Garden Ninja:
Clearly, Shamus is still addicted to Chime

I honestly think I would prefer comics that have no punchlines or words.

Too much Chiming has totally Chimed his ability to make funny Chimes!

Good god, I feel like a smurf.

I heard all the buzz about this

Oh my god I feel bad for laughing at that. You win the thread.

Shamus, you disappoint me. We taught you better than this. Child-friendly puns? Preposterous!

Jaredin:
...Oh god, hitting a new low XD

Don't worry, he can go lower.

OT: I don't get it Heh, worth a chuckle. Your name for this comic hinted at the content.

The Escapist must be a great place to work if they let you get away with this and then pay you for it.

hansari:
Metal Gere Solid would certainly tap into a new gamer demographic.

(housewives 45+)

Oh my God! I just thought of it... Metal Gere SOLID. Hahahaha, it's a porn game for housewives!

.... eww

Oh god..."they call me Solid Snake" xD

I lol'd

OT: Wow, you must BEE really angry at us.

Puns cause Cancer.

Its true, I read it in an online webcomic.

That was disproved recently. They took ten of the worst and no pun in ten did.

Of all the puns on this thread, this is the only one that made me groan. You, sir, win a cookie. A big one.

What, no ones linked this yet? For shame, FOR SHAME!

Ah, hell with it......ROFLMAO

Why does Metal Gere Solid make me think it might be some weird Guitar Hero clone?

The_root_of_all_evil:

You are an evil person. I look forward to more of your forum hijinks.

I GET IT! They're PUNS! That's sooo funny! ltfol!

"Wegeta what's his PUN level"
"IT'S OVER 9000!!!"

busy week huh

Umm......where is the humor in this again?

The Metal Gere one was mildly amusing.. the other two.. well, sometimes trying too hard kills the humour.

I dont get his

Metal Gere Solid was good. Others, not so much. But 33% is okay.

Even if I can't stand Richard Gere

"Hey, whos that guy?"
"Which Guy?"
"The Ninja Guy."
"Oh, thats Dan."

NINJA GUY DAN

Im never going to get that out of my head...

You're evil, due you know that?

Not bad, but not funny enough for a Stolen Pixel. Also: not enough text.

>: (

*ba dum tish*

although, those were pretty funny i guess.

Slow joke day?

I love this comic strip. Just needs to be said more often.

GGGRRRROOOAAAANNNNNN!

Such horrible puns. I feel like my soul dies a little.

Metal Gere Solid looks like it might be the most playable version of the series.

So a few throw away jokes?

Stolen pixels has long ceased to make me laugh, so I guess this is it.

is puns on the names really all there is? hehhhh, I expected more. However I do not hate you.
What are games doing on console anyway?
