To stop an edit war, what is with the Charmin example? How is that a stealth pun? Everyone knows they're going to the bathroom. Does the woods mean something else?

I've got an idea. Why don't we include a folder for trope names that are stealth puns, such as Incest Is Relative.

Eh, that one at least is already on the Just for Pun index.

some of these examples are quite a stretch.

Is this more than a Justfying Edit for the MLP:FIM entry?
  • Prime example of the fandom forcing references where there are none. Amnion only means bowl in one single instance, "lamb's blood bowl". "Amnos" is Greek for lamb, not for bowl. So, there goes one third of the "pun". The second third, "morphic" means "shape-related", not "shaping". So, that's zero out of two. Finally, it's "bearded", not "hairy", so that's zero out of three.

The following has been copied over from this trope's Headscratchers page:

It's more suited to Discussion.

How is the first Discworld example (the "Hangman" drink) a Stealth Pun? It's explained in the story.

Yeah, pulled it. Also the "unarmed combat" gag from Jingo, another Non-Stealthy Pun.

EDIT: Nevermind, I remembered the mentioned example wrong. Disregard this remark.

I assume this Pearls Before Swine strip is an example, but I'm not seeing it. Anyone know?

The joke with Michael Jackson is not actually an example, whether or not it is funny. Spoiler: It's not funny.

This might as well be a running gag by now: can someone explain the joke on the quotes page? Was the third Robin a fake...?

The third Robin was Tim Drake.

It rhymes with "It's a fake."
