Bad Puns Get You Banned

That’s not true, actually.  Not where I’m concerned.  You should all tell me your bad puns whenever they cross your mind.  Seriously, they are my delight.  I can’t help it.  I’ve got amazing taste.

For example, while writing a fairly intense scene today, the word “banhammer” got stuck in my head.  In internet communities, the banhammer is when a moderator comes in and kicks you out–pip, core, and all.  You do not pass go, you do not get to collect $200, you don’t get to troll anyone anymore….  It’s a Big Deal.  And now I can’t help but think of a scenario with an actual Banhammer.  In my head, it’d be about Thor.  I told this idea to my friends, and received encouragement instead of the condemnation I should have received.  They suggested a story of Odidn’t, the deity who can’t even (OH NO YOU DIDN’T!) and that nerf bats (another internet term, mostly for games) became deadly to the pantheon.

I think it’s out of my system now.  I can go back to writing about the Lady of Bones.  Oops!  Did I just say that out loud?
