    Love this! I tried tweeting but it doesn't show the image so the context is lost. Might want to look into that.

    Love this, would love it more if there were more actual puns.

    Haha - this is awesome. Great job, guys! Would be awesome if I could get a new one on 'space' key.. for mindless navigation :P

    Just a curiosity, do you match them automatically by image tags, or they are manually created?

      Thanks Vlad! Great question; it's all pre-rendered prior. I built a script that grabs the first noun from a pun, searches and returns the first image from Unsplash and then groups it together in a clientside JSON file. I think if I wasn't using an outrageous amount of AWS instances, I'd have done that server-side; but I decided to serve all the puns up through the client instead.

        First noun, it makes sense now. Some don't match, I think you saw that too. But I'm sure you made it just for fun. Although, I see the opposite pattern in these puns. It seems like the last noun is the core one. You should try it locally and visually check if the results are better. I would love to see a better version of this. Thank you for your answer :)

    Really fun idea! One suggestion: Maybe make the "Another pun" button a little more conspicuous? For example, you could increase the padding around it so the clickable area is larger?
