Hurricane of Puns and Incredibly Lame Pun share the same (rather weak) image. Any suggestions on replacing one or both?

Great example, but it would make a poor page image. At wiki size (350 pixels wide, max — that means less than half of its current width) it would be completely unreadable.

We'd only need about four panels, including "this is your junk". Stack Vertically and Voila.

Here's my attempt for Hurricane:

[up] A lot of those puns are hard to get. Maybe a caption explaining them in hot-tips might be an idea.

In any case, I say the Incredibly Lame Pun pic could stand to be replaced too, as it is just a discussion of it, not an example.

EDIT: And here is an example: http://xkcd.com/282/

EDIT again: Wow, copying and pasting the comic I find it is exactly 350 pixels wide. No need for resizing or cropping at all. I shall upload it to TV Tropes then.

Honestly, the two quotes that are on the page are sufficient; adding a pic is pretty much gilding the lily.

Geoduck's suggestion is also a massive spoiler.

I like the xkcd one for Lame Pun, it's the reaction "we are no longer friends" that really sells it for me.

Yeah, xkcd would be perfect for Incredibly Lame Pun.

[up] I'd prefer it on that page.

As would I. It actually shows the In-Universe reaction to the pun which is important to the trope.

Should I put the XKCD one on ILP then?

Apr 14th 2011 at 7:44:48 PM

[up] Sounds like a plan to me; just make sure to put in a hidden tag saying that the decision to change it was made in this thread with a link.

Apr 15th 2011 at 11:06:19 AM

I see that ILP has been taken care of; back to Hurricane of Puns. I still say this one may be better left pic-less.

The Incredibly Lame Pun pic could be smaller; it's really big as of now.

And now that the pictures have been separated, leave this one as is.

Changed my mind; I'm fine with the current pic on Hurricane of Puns.

A Visual Pun, for a trope about Puns? This one has my vote.
