I dunno, I think that depends on how strict your parameters are. If you open your mind, maybe you'll find that it puns even deeper.

This might have been able to go in Random Thoughts, but ah who cares?

Ive always misheard lyrics, and something about them they have just stuck with me. The first one was the chorus of Precursor remix of Closer, and the chorus to be specific...

"I want to fuck you like a cantaloupe, like a cantaloupe..."

And then, years later, when Witha Teetha came out (im not going to even going into the title track...), there was a track called Everyday is Exactly the Same...

"I think I used to have a porpoise, and then again that might have been a dream"

So TR thought had a marine mammal for a pet? Did it turn out to be a dolphin or something?

Flash forward to late July, 2013. Japan. First live show in years, and less than five minutes into the set...

"Imprinted with a porpoise... porpoise... porpoise... A porpoise that's become quite clear today"

I was actually thinking something like this along the lines from what I've misheard around the ending of Happiness In Slavery. It was quite the coincidence, because that happened before I ever saw the music video. It sounded as if I heard Trent Reznor whisper, "A penis.", and that stuck with me too. And by the time I saw the music video, it obviously fit in to it very well. I heard it correctly in the actual chorus though. I also guess that kind of misheard whisper could sort of count as a brutal NIN pun.

I've been reading this forum now for a few days. Haven't really posted anything. You seem like a strange sort. I don't dislike all of you, or even most of you. Nine Inch Nails fans are like any other kind of fanbase I suppose; you have your cool ones, and you have your assholes. Anyway, I thought for a while I was going to join this forum, jump in, talk from time to time, maybe give an opinion or two, because I thought a lot of you seemed like very smart people. However, upon reading this thread, my views have become somewhat damaged.

Stuck at work? I have found happiness in slavery but this is not meant to last, it is for right now. Do not mark your hesitation. To get closer, use various methods of escape... perhaps the way out is through. Love is not enough to be right where it belongs.

So when I announced Pretty Eight Machine, I got dogged pretty hard. Old ETS'ers, NIN forum people, chiptune scene folks....all shouting, "Heresy!" I was Hurt and wondered, Where Is Everybody that cares? I didn't want to be the Ruiner of their favorite album. But when I released it, you might be able to say The Big Come Down happened. Underneath It All, I was able to find The Way Out Is Through.

Yeah, just cramming song titles into conversations is kind of grating. It's like those horrible Pitchfork reviews (I think it was them, anyway) where they try to be really clever by using the titles or lyrics a million times in the reviews.

However, I did giggle at the mental image of someone's wife leaving a trail of honey nut cheerios. And then cringed when I realized the username (I was just subjected to that song for the first time this weekend).

And on that note...yeah, no NIN puns from me right now. Sorry.

Hey, I've been to Punderdome on multiple occasions. We go by the broad "play on words" definition. To all the haters: You can try to stop it, but it keeps on punning.

Anyway, speaking of cheerios, I was a winner on one of those "inside the box" contests they do but I was out of the country at the time and I'm not really into the "void where prohibited" thing. :(
