PLEASE PLAEASE PLEASE! Can someone explain Guinan's original joke from the script? I can't stop thinking about it! I NEED TO KNOW THE PUNCHLINE!

It reads like the closest thing to a punchline would be in the middle. Being "under a commitment to keep a secret about nothing" could be funny with the right setup. (I could go further speculating on how this came to be in the script, but maybe later.) On closer inspection, it may be supposed to not quite add up ("no soap radio") and leave Data as confused as the audience on this one.

Contrary to what the example entry insists, enough is not said about Borat to justify its presence on the page. Ordinarily I would clarify myself, but I haven't actually seen the film and don't intend to.

I think the point of 'fish dicks' was that it was such an obvious pun, yet one nobody had ever done before. the 'undiscovered' aspect of the joke was half the point. That, and the first couple times, it was extremely funny.

Shouldn't this trope be consider the counterpart of Narm?

The laughing scene from FFX was not supposed to be funny. It was indicative of Yuna's emotional repression. Why can't people get that?

Methinks this is one of those situation were viewers are indeed morons.
