Warning: this post contains fairly NSFW language and some blisteringly good punning

On Sunday i100.co.uk bought you the news that computers are now capable of deciding how funny puns are.

Cunning linguistic feats the programme particularly enjoyed included:

  • My battery had an alkaline problem, so it went to AA meetings

  • Herb gardeners who work extra get thyme and a half

  • Last night, I kept dreaming that I had written Lord of the Rings. The wife said I'd been Tolkien in my sleep

In an effort to prove human beings are still wittier than our robot overlords, we have searched every corner of the internet for the best wordplay and double entrendres out there.

Don't pun-ish us if you don't like them.
