I like Dexter. I know it's a horrible show and I shouldn't, but I do. (This is John, by the way. Jen claims she'd rather "exercise" than sit through a single episode. Harsh.) Still, there's one thing missing that I think would make Dexter truly great: puns.
Think about it. The occasional "good" CSI-style pun could transform Dexter from a pretty decent cop show about a psychopath who chops bad people up into little pieces and keeps blood in his air conditioner into a pretty decent cop show about a psychopath who chops bad people up into little pieces and keeps blood in his air conditioner...with puns.
Allow me to demonstrate. (With a little - ok, a lot - of help from Jen.)
Random cop 2: "Oh, man! It looks like the victim's nose was sliced off with a cheese grater!"
Random cops: [applauding]
"This is a killer who never toes the line."
"Still no? Ok, ok, I got it:
"Looks like those little piggies went, 'Whee whee whee! We're DEAD.'"
Thanks to Kelly M., Joanne D., Jenny W., Emma R., & Anna I. for putting murder...on the menu.
Although I don't think I'll be eating again any time soon.
