Calling the crowner in favor of
Lame Pun Reaction with a final tally of +14 (yeas:16 nays:2) 8.00 : 1
'That Pun Was Lame' Reaction (+2 (yeas:6 nays:4) 1.50 : 1) was the only other option with a postive final tally.

...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
Does it make sense to ignore all the wicks that are likely to be potholes (i.e subpages, tropes not about puns)? I don't feel we have a chance of getting this done without making things easier.
Whew, first post in the new year!
That was my proposition in the previous crowner, a) in order to make the job easier (it's a lot of wicks) and b) because the ILP page was created for the sinkholes in the first place and it seemed counterintuitive to change this.
I have been working on it. But due to very limited free time, it's going s.l.o.w.l.y.
Catbert, also note that any in-universe puns should be changed directly to Pun (Incredibly Lame Pun is only for troper puns)—although I will admit that if it's in a quote and the pun is obvious, I generally just delete the pothole—and that anything which would fit better on one of the subtropes (examples of Punny Name and Pun-Based Title are the two most common to run across) should be changed to the subtrope.
And I would love to just delete the troper pun potholes, but unfortunately, that lost the ILP crowner, so it's not an option.
I've done A through Series.Bottom. You might want to start at Z and work backwards, as I have a tendency to work in ten wick batches, spread out randomly through time (a result of me using it as a break from schoolwork).
I'm usually fairly good about updating the thread about what I've finished.
EDIT: Oh, I skip pages in WMG/ and Headscratchers/, as they're 99.9% guaranteed to be troper pun potholes.
Up next is Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. 9606/8088
This seems to have been forgotten. There are as-is 9831 wicks here - I would suggest to only check the ones about works and their subpages, pun tropes and others who are likely not just troper potholes.
Alternative Titles: Incredibly Lame Pun

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
