I would first like to thank my opponent for accepting this Pun War. I would first like to hope it is a clean, and fair battle. The Pun war will proceed as follows: My opponent will begin with 3 puns, than I will respond with 3 puns, and so on and so forth. Good Luck, and I will let my opponent begin.

I'd Like to apologzie for my error, and I will appropriatley offer an alternative pun for my number 3 round 4 post. I would ask all voters to replace pun 3 round 4 with this pun that I will supply:

Round 4:

Pun 3: The Roundest Knight at King Arthur's table was Sir Cumference. He acquired his name from eating too much pi.

Again I sincerely apologize for this mistake, it was unintentional, I just caught it right after submitting my argument for round 4. I feel it necessary to vote in negation in regards to conduct, seeing as I have made multiple errors throughout this pun war. I thank you again for your cooperation.

On to the final round, this has been a very enjoyable war and I thank my opponent for their participation/understanding throughout this debate, my opponent has presented rather clever and humorous puns, several in which I had never heard. Thank you.

Final Round (5) Puns:

1. I decided becoming a vegetarian was a missed steak.

2.The mime wanted to say something, but he wasn't aloud.

3. It was an emotional wedding. Even the cake was in tiers.
GhostWriter

Con

1. When the electricity went off during a storm at a school the students were de-lighted.

2. A bank manager without anyone around may find themself a-loan.

3. I really do have a photographic memory -- I just haven't developed it yet.

I'd like to thank my opponent for offering up a great and amusing debate!
Good luck with voting!

Alex: I think arguments are supposed to go to pun quality, conduct for conduct (pro specificly mentioned it as something to evaluate seperatly; he admitted to conduct errors but not neccesarily bad punning) and everything else tied, unless you found spelling errors.

I have an open debate. Someone accepted it and then never posted. Good for Libertarians or other United States isolationist types, or pacifists also.
