Arnold Schwarzenegger is The Terminologist. (Real Audio link, relevant part starts at about 06:45)
An 'ill-literate' take on a summer blockbuster movie from Gary Roma, winner of the "Whad'ya Know" radio show's "Not Much Talent Contest" and "2001 Punster of the Year" according to the International Save the Pun Foundation (an award previously punwon by famed 'Verbivore' Richard Lederer).
Avoiding Real Audio? Here's a similarly themed piece, and more from his stand-up act.
Are you a glutton for pun-ishment? I've o-punned a Pun-dora's Box!
The Web has tons of puns! (homage to y2karl, who has one of MeFi's most punnish user names)
Hilarity en-sues (in small clowns court)! If there's justice, they'll throw the book at me... a Karmic Book! It's pun-demonium! Pun-cakes for everybody!!!
Or as Gary Roma puts it, "Take my word! Please!"

wendell, son, - get thee to a punnery!

Okay, yes. I'm obviously more a glutton for the infliction of pun-pun-punishment, myself, but I did like the unrequited-love story in the fifth link (or the fourth, depending on how you look at it...)

Actually, if mefites ever decided to do an open source pun-ipedia sort of thing, we could probably significantly elevate the quality of the internet "pun-jab". May I suggest "the-pun-also-rises.org"?

I mean we would have to do better than punpunpun.com's pun of the day for today:

"The World Health Organization, that's who, were discussing the dangers of smoking. They were over budget. The butt talks were in arrears."

Obviously, it should have gone like this:

The director of the World Health Organization, oblivious to everything else, is concentrating solely on the upcoming "dangers of smoking" forum. In fact, people are beginning to say that the WHO has its head completely up its butt talks.

Oh, forget it. The Cabal spared you, lucky fool.

Ooops! There is no secret cabal! Silly me!

Domo oregano, mr. roboto.

Actually, the secret cabal has been out to get me since mid-2000, but so far I've escaped by not getting rides from any cabal drivers...

I seem to have dodged the bullshit again, but I could still bring down the ire of the MeFi community by engaging in some masterbatory praise of the current President... you know, beating around the Bush?

wendell, don't try to Bush-it us.

I'm glad to finally hear from soyjoy. For a while, I thought he was going to be soy-lent... green!

Yes, it's rare to find me a-green, right?
