This is a math blog, but from time to time, I write about other things. Today I have something to say about puns, which I adore.
I also like gym, but rarely go there: it doesn’t work out. I stopped using stairs, because they are up to something. I wanted to learn how to juggle, but I don’t have the balls to do it.
I work at MIT, the work place with the best dam mascot: Tim the Beaver. My salary is not big, and I stopped saving money after I lost interest. I’m no photographer, but I have pictured myself outside of MIT too. I am a mathematician, which is the most spiritual profession: I am very comfortable with higher powers. I praise myself on great ability to think outside the box: it is mostly due to my claustrophobia. I am also a bit of a philosopher: I can go on talking about infinity forever.
I would love to tell you a joke. I recently heard a good one about amnesia, but I forgot how it goes.
My biggest problem is with English. So what if I don’t know what apocalypse means? It’s not the end of the world!
I never get tired of puns and here is my list of pun puzzles from the MIT Mystery Hunt:
- We Are All Afraid to Die. I edited this 2018 puzzle and enjoyed it very much.
- Mass Aid. I didn’t work on this 2018 puzzle, but it looks like a lot of fun.
- Capital Punishment. 2017 puzzle that looks tempting.
- Typecasting. A 2017 puzzle with pictures of actors.
- Losers. A 2016 puzzle that I would be very bad at.
- Be a Star!. A 2015 puzzle that I enjoyed very much.
- Feeling Bluefin. A 2015 puzzle that looks delicious.
- Timbales. A 2011 puzzle that might be the most famous pun puzzle.
