Same rules as this:http://www.debate.org...

So that Pirate made me walk off the plank and I asked, "Can't I have one last mug of root beer?", and he said "That would be fine", so then I took the mug and jumped! And you know, I would've drowned if it hadn't been for one thing: Root Beer Floats!

Con's joke was not a pun.

"The pun, also called paronomasia, is a form of word play which suggests two or more meanings, by exploiting multiple meanings of words, or of similar-sounding words, for an intended humorous or rhetorical effect."

Last time I did one of these debates, I was required to give ten puns in one statement, and would be awarded points based on how many of the ten puns actually made people laughed. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.
