Will launch Friday, if there are no objections.

A subtype of Pun-Based Title which applies to individual episode titles, an not the which the pun is based upon some element of popular culture, such as the name of a film, book, or song. Catch Phrases, song lyrics, adages, and colloquialisms can also be riffed on.

Examples:

  • Many episodes of the Syfy series Eureaka, especially in the third season.
  • Gossip Girl.
  • Several episodes of Charmed.
  • A few episodes of South Park.
  • Some episodes of the English dub of Pokemon.
  • Many episodes of the English dub of the various Digimon series.
  • Ed, Edd, N Eddy
  • The Simpsons, which achieves many of these puns by incorporating Homer's Catch Phrase "D'Oh!"
  • The Food Network cooking show Good Eats does this for most of its episodes. ("Porterhouse Rules," "Citizen Cane," "The Egg Files," "Field of Greens", etc.)
