I love puns and the inevitable eye-rolls that follow. There is a quote by an unknown author that goes, “A pun is a short quip followed by a long groan.” In my opinion, the more intense the eye-roll or the groan, the more successful the pun is.
Puns go as far back in history as ancient China, the Maya civilization, and ancient Egypt. The latter where puns were found being heavily used in the development of myths and interpretation of dreams. It is my belief that it is our duty as man to keep these traditions alive and well. After all, behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.

This week’s [NSFW] is quite shocking (cue eye-rolls). Underestimating arc flash hazards can be bad for your health. “…an electrical circuit is a ticking bomb. It is simply waiting for the right conditions to blow. A twisted pole, faulty interlock, and enough energy will turn an electrical firecracker into a mortal lightning strike. Moreover, what does the smart person do when they come upon a ticking box? They turn around and go the other way, of course. In addition, they call the authorities.”
