Puns are funny

February 14, 2005

The success of “Hitch” may be good news for Sony, but the rest of the world has to deal with these ‘clever’ headlines (the film’s deliberate coinciding with St. Valentine’s Day only added to the paronomasia madness):

Valentine’s Audiences Attracted to ‘Hitch’ – Elites TV
Hitched to a real star– USA Today
Smith flick massacres Valentine’s box office records – Ireland Online
Filmgoers ‘Hitch’ their love to star – NY Daily News
Smith romances box office – Globe and Mail
‘Hitch’ hooks up at No. 1 – Minneapolis Star Tribune

And the pièce de résistance:

‘Hitch’-ed to $45 million – Media Absurdum
