Dwell Magazine and Their Editorial Love of Puns

“As a longtime subscriber and admirer of Dwell, I have become increasingly annoyed by your recent habit of titling articles with not-so-very-clever puns. I think a well-placed, clever pun is a great thing. However, most of yours are simply groaners. Please, quit trying so hard to be witty and go back to writing meaningful and descriptive titles for your articles.” — Jim Wright
The occasional pun is a great thing, but it’s gotten to the point where multiple articles an issue are named something inane like “Outback Staked House”. I’m glad someone finally called them out on it, and even more glad they published the complaint in the Letters section of the Sept. ’08 issue — even if their response was an intentional pun on Wright’s name (wink, wink, nudge).
