This is a question Bastard Colleagues

You've all known one. The brown-nosing fucker, the 'comedian', the drunk, the gossip and of course the weird one with no mates who goes bell ringing, looks like Mr Majika and sports a monk's haircut (and is a woman).

Tell us about yours...

Thanks to Deskbound for the idea

in my best 'Wonder Years' voice:
I learned a lot that afternoon on my iMac, frantically typing up puns. I came of age that day. I learned what it means to laugh and be laughed at in return. Most of all, I remember the camaraderie, the shared hilarity and the knowledge that true friendship can always find humour where there is none.

This has made me wonder...
Is there an over-arching, all-encompassing formula for shit punnery which can be applied to any QOTW? Is there a template which will work for any set of words, thus saving everyone a bit of time when coming up with convoluted stories which lead into them?

An interesting thought, no? I think Pooflake is inching ever closer to it with this post.

Δ x Δ p > = h/4π where p is the focus word, x is the resultant pun and delta measures the offset between the two, etc.

Unfortunately, in my case...

The formula is:

...that formula looks an awful lot like Heisenberg's Puncertainty Principle...

Big gold star!
My subtle punning in mathematical form was recognised by a fellow geek!

...I believe it's usually followed by Pauli's very simple Exclusion Principle, whereby anyone who drops a pun that bad is ostracised from further conversation.
