I'm noticing in some examples the person who gave the hurricane will simply say something that fits the topic but won't work it into a sentence, such as the Family Guy example. Is this notable enough to mention in the description?

Why isn't the title of this trope a pun? Hurricane of Puns doesn't fit in with other pun-related tropes like Just For Pun and Pungeon Master, so why not call the Hurricane of Puns "Punderstorm," instead?

Heh. Glad I'm not the only one who thought of that.

Indeed. Approval is needed.

Punderstorm it is. Now we just wait for the Trope Repair Shop to have some open space.

punderstorm? doesn't really convey the high volume of puns. why not "gatling pun", dropping the storm theme entirely?

Another vote in favor of renaming the article "Punderstorm." While it is true that a hurricane is a more powerful weather phenomenon than a mere thunderstorm, the Punderstorm demonstrates within itself the nature of the article, and as a demonstrative title is superior to the incumbent.

Two things here:
  • Renaming something is a TRS/forum matter, not a discussion page one.
  • Punderstorm only works if you get the pun. Hurricane Of Puns doens't need that.
