To Pun or Not To Pun

No joke:  A lot of you (except maybe Sara) have been saying you DON'T like the puns at the end of the show.  That's perfectly all right; my feelings aren't hurt (much).

But here's your chance to help us decide what to do in future programs:  Do we continue including puns?  We know they're corny, but hey, puns are meant to be.  And if a majority of you don't want 'em in the show, well, we may just take 'em out.

    I would be terribly sad to see you drop the puns. As a long-time viewer, I think they were without any question one of the high points of the show.

    I don't think it's fair that the writers should have to change their puns. I, personally, look forward to the puns. I have to admit, I make fun of them, but it's something that will always make me laugh. Out of corny-ness, of course. Those humorless students can plug their ears for all I care. Keep it up, Carl...and writer!

    Yeah Carl,

    Keep the puns. It's something I look forward to, even if I often groan. It's become your "signature."

    I just want to know, do you write your own puns, or does the staff do that?

    Either way, yes they should stay. I enjoy a good laugh (or groan!).

    And to borrow a line from Linda Ellerbee:

    And so it goes....

    Carl Azuz please please do not stop with the puns. At first they were pretty weird, but then after watching the show in the beginning of class you kinda need a good pun to start the day. Please Carl keep the puns!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Here is my general opinon, as a 17 year old senior in high school, I feel that there is not enough comdey, or happiness for that matter, in the news nowadays. Everyday, we watch your program in our World War II history class in first period, (by the way, great coverage on the Republican National Convention, as a Republican Conservative it makes me glad to see the news on this channel isn't biased like others) at the end of the program, everyone gripes and moans about how cheesey the puns were (no offense). I believe that you should definantly keep them because it makes me feel better that we can all joke around even though the world is in a very terrible condition. Keep up the good work Carl, I can't wait to see the news on Monday.
    ~Steveizzle fo'sizzle yo! PEACE

    Carl Azuz, you NEED the puns, bad or not! I watch your segment every morning in my World War II class. Without your puns, I find it almost impossible to concentrate all day. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not give up the awesome puns!!! I need them, I need them or I will explode(just kidding). But seriously all joking aside, everbody likes them and you should keep them.

    September 5, 2008 at 8:04 am |
  15. Tiffany

    I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sad that there's no pun this Friday! Please have them BACK.

    CARL AZUZ FOR ALL THAT IS GOOD AND SANE IN THE WORLD DO NOT STOP YOUR BEAUTIFUL PUNS!!!!!! I watch your show daily in my history class, I have it first period and it is difficult to get excited at the begining of the day. Hovever, your news program is able to brighten my day...everyone in the class thoroughly enjoys the puns at the end of each broadcast. We actually attempt to guess the pun before it happens its like a competition. Carl, what you need to do is ignore these neighsayers, and continue your punning ways. I love puns so much I'll give you some to use on they show. In case the situation arrises: "Denial" is a river in Egypt, How do dinosaurs pay their bills? With tyranosaurus "checks", If you ever have a story about geology you could say that something wasn't your "fault," if someone is at a pancake house you could say you didn't want to be there because it gives you the "crepes." If there is a story on owls you could discuss people giving a "hoot," you could make a "cheesy" pun about quesadillas. Dutch shoes used to be made in a machine in a factory until it got "clogged" up. Carl i know these aren't the best but i hope that they may have helped in some way. Your puns find a way everyday to help my outlook and make the frightful stories of the news more palpable.

    Carl Azuz,
    Have a pun.
    I love them,
    They are fun.

  18. Scott

    Carl Azuz, I simply adore your halarious puns at the end of each production. My World War II class watches your show every morning and your puns are simply the sun's warm rays that brighten up my cloudy morning. A good chuckle at 7:30 in the morning is always a good way to start out a seven hour work day. For the love of all that is good in the world you must keep your puns...or perhaps even do more of them...yes...five or six a day would be ideal. Keep the halarity rolling along with informing us on important world news. Perhaps it is hard for you to concieve the seriousness of this situation, so let me relate the condition of the morning to you : my heart, along with the hearts of my classmates were lacking something this morning, as if we were not whole. It seemed that the only possible thing that could complete us would be one of your puns, and when one did not come up at the end of your production our hearts were never made whole, and we were filled with great sorrow. So with a heavy heart and teary eyes I beg you to keep your halarious pun, for certainly, they are the cat's pajamas.

    Stay "punny" or the show won't be "funny". (Well,actually,the show will still be funny without puns, but it's just so strange without them)

    Carl it is extremely necessary that you continue to make puns on your broadcasts. without them my days will be dull and boring. i dont know how i would survive a day of school that was not started by a magnificent puns. If you are having trouble writting puns i am happy to help"I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me.","Did you hear about the guy whose whole left side was cut off? He's all right now.","To write with a broken pencil is pointless.", "There was once a cross-eyed teacher who couldn't control his pupils.",Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.","Atheism is a non-prophet organization.","The butcher backed up into the meat grinder and got a little behind in his work.","If you don't pay your exorcist you get repossessed.","A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was ticketed for littering.", "The roundest knight at king Arthur's round table was Sir Cumference.","Now matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery.","Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie."

    Dear Carl,
    My class would be very distraught if the daily puns were removed from the show. My class believes this is the highlight of the show, considering we watch them every morning at 8 am. The puns make their day, everyday. PLEASE KEEP THEM IN. 🙂

    Everyday we discuss in class how corny the puns are. Please stop using them or at least use them sparingly. if you must use them, post your "lighter side" story topics in advance and let students think of the puns. Then they will have no one to blame but themselves.

    i think you should keep puns because it keeps the kids more intrested in the student news and the new is so serious that it would be great to have some humor on the news .

    I don't think CNN Student news should take away the puns.They are a fun and interesting way to clear our minds of school for at least a few seconds!We need a little humor during the school day.

    My opinion would be to keep the puns.
    The reason why I would want you to keep the puns is because they really are nice to have and funny at the same time.
    Also,they give you information and other stuff going on around the world.

    I have taught 7-12 Social Studies for years. We have watched CNN Student News so much that my students get tired of the news and talking about current events. However, they all straighten up to hear the puns at the end of the show. If nothing else, it is a way to get kids attention whether they like the pun or not. Educationally I strongly encourgae you to keep the puns.

    No, I think the puns are stupid and point less. But every now and then they would be ok, just not everyday.

    YOU HAVE TO KEEP THE PUNS!!!! The kids at Cooper Middle School DEPEND on them to cheer them up whenever they need it. It is the light that wipes away their darkness. So many good moments have been based on your fabulous puns and they CANT stop!!! PLEASE don't stop the puns!

You were in our school end-of-year slideshow. your written on our windows. we love your puns. We all (journalism class) cannot stand to see them go away. Please keep them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  132. Hannah

    It is the general opinion in my journalism class (or so I gather from the shrieks of outrage at the end of the most recent show) that the PUNS ARE THE BEST PART OF THE NEWSCAST! They make you who you are, Carl, don't let any downers say differently! As a professional pun-pusher myself, I compliment the writers because they are some of the best..and corniest..I've ever heard in my career. Keep them, chin up, and don't let narrow-minded people dampen your spirits! Carl, you are my idol.

    Hey Carl Azuz my name is Daniel and I am from Cooper middle school. I watch you in journalism everyday with my journalism class. I think it would be the worst thing if you were to stop the puns. That’s what I look forward to when I watch CNN Student News. You are the highlight of my day. When ever the pun comes a long the whole class goes OHH CARL. It is our journalism inside joke and you need to know it. If you stop the puns they should just stop CNN student news. That’s how great you are. To hear you say there was no more puns we were all heartbroken. You looked so sad and hurt it hurt us to. Like you have no idea how much it ruined our day. So PUN ON CARL AZUZ…….PUN ON

    WOW! I knew I wasn't the only one to enjoy your puns!!!! 😀
    Don't you dare get rid of them! If you do you, on your next broadcast you will be talking about a protest outside your studio from kids like me. So, they're lame and corny, so what? That's what makes CNN Student News the awesome show that it is. 😀

    Hi, my name is Alysse...and I think you shouldn't use the puns because they are not that funny and sometimes I dont even know what you are talking about. I think you should stop using them and just say like a little joke or something. Maybe a poem,I like poems.I just dont think you should use the puns.

    Imagine one day full of war, grief, terror, sadness and the resulting bad news, we have to bear almost every day right now (even sometimes on CNN Student News). Wouldn't you then like to have a little special at the end of the show, that gives you back the big grin and the good mood you had before?

    Can only accompany to the majority here:

    THOSE PUNS HAVE TO STAY!! We love them!! :oD

If you take them out a lot of people will be sad and not like it the same way they used to. I think that you should keep the puns and not take them away, who cares what people say about about it, it's your show and you should do what you want. I gotta ditch the keyboard. C ya

    I think you should keep the puns Carl. Sure they may be corny and somewhat annoying but that is what makes the show unique. So keep those "punny" puns coming!

    I think that cnn does a great job at the student news. I watch it everyday in second block. I think McCain chose a women because some women wanted Hilary Clinton to be in charge, and that gives women at least second power. Good Job! Please post this! It gives everyone in second block a 100 test grade.

    Hi Carl–
    By leaving us without a pun today, we were forced to make our own. I said that the presidential candidates might not find the candidate cookies to be in good taste...We all agreed that you should go back to fun puns.

    This is written by the students of Bryant Academy in Claremont.

    Should you continue with your puns? We all vote for you to
    keep them in – we think they are fun. Keep up the good work!

    We prefer that taxes are abolished. However, if the
    government is going to spend our money, it should be spent at
    home in the US first to deal with the economic crisis that
    we're in. One should take care of their own before others.

    We think it is a good thing for students to get involved in
    the politics that effect their lives.

    Please send us money so we can build a tree house like the
    one in Wisconsin. We think that would be an excellent school project.

  242. Will

    WHO CARES ABOUT THE PUNS! Im fine with them or without them, who cares if they're dumb, people in my class like to have a laugh even if its sarcastic. My point is, you might as well have them!

    September 5, 2008 at 6:52 pm |
  243. Faith

    Hey Carl,
    Great show! I've been keeping up for about 3 weeks now in accordance with my AP human geography class. I really enjoy it, and i would even if it wasn't an assignment. About the puns....ok they never have me in hysterics, but i get a big kick out of them. It's fun to watch you say the puns and then be all embarressed....very funny. So as long as we're closing out with this...
    keep punning car.

    September 5, 2008 at 6:52 pm |
  244. Alexandra

    The puns are what i look foward in class after silent reading every day! And I think they are fun, educational in what's happening in the US, and usually pretty funny! Also even though my friends and me make fun of it most of the time it's still cool to hear. By the by, who are you voting for on the political votes? Bye!

    Hi Carl, I realy want you to the puns everyone loves them in my class. If you stop my class will not like the shows any more. Even my teacher likes your puns, that is if you want 2 only if you want 2. But please keep every joke and always say them. I think that it would be good 4 all the people that do not like the puns should have at least 1 day each week, 2 have no pun at all. Also my friend wants 2 know if you will tell him if he is as funny as you. His name is Bryce. My mom loves it when you said "that you had 2 hop on out of here." please please please keep the puns. I have 2 go good bye Carl

    Dear Carl,
    THis is lauryn! We were actually on the show once during the shoutout! We just want you to know that even though some of the puns are corny, we really do love them. They're are seven blocks of journalism at Cooper and every single one of them watched CNN student news, everyday! In our end of the year slide show you and Monica were in it. Everytime you make a pun we all go 'Oh, Carl!' They really mean alot to us! If you get rid of the puns it will totally horrible! PUNS ARE AMAZING even if they are corny! We love them!

    Hey, Mr. Azuz-

    Definitely keep the puns! My class and I love to snort or laugh at them and to watch our teacher trying to explain it to us. All the other comments are right–without them, the show wouldn't be...well, the show! (And freshman year would be much more boring...) We were all so disappointed when there wasn't a pun today, and we kept it on for a few more seconds after it was over, thinking it was some kind of joke.

    Please keep, 'em!

    OK so on friday my class is watching the cnn student news and were like ok here's comes the pun and then there isnt one so we were dissapointed. Our whole school likes the puns keep them! KEEP THEM KEEP THEM KEEP THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think you guys should keep the puns. Becuase without them the we woulden't have anything to laugh at when the show is over. And the show would be to serious and not enough funny.

    Keep it PUNNY!!!! That wasnt very PUNNY!!!!

    Mr.Azuz,I vote yes! I think the puns are very interesting, and our teacher told us this was a homework assignment, so I think it is a good idea to keep the puns . ( Oh, and by the way the whole class was told to answer yes.)

    September 6, 2008 at 7:44 pm |
  331. Julianna

    Ok so, they may be super corny but without them, your show just doesn't feel complete. The other day when you asked about whether we liked them or not and then signed off i was waiting for the pun, but it didn't come! It just wouldn't be student news without your punnyness.

    September 6, 2008 at 8:19 pm |
  332. Julianna

    keep them! (i already said that) i scrolled through the comments and very few people said to get rid of them and since in America majority rules....

    here's one that my friend said about sarah palin, if you have a pic of her with the liberty bell behind her (they had that slide up at the convention) then you could say, "and there she is, the liberty belle" =P

    yay punnyness!!!

    Hey i say u keep them because they are AWESOME and i love watching CNN Student News because my teacher says the goal of 6th grade social studies is to be an informed,active,and an aware citizen of which the world i live.

    carl, it would be a huge shame if the puns stopped. It leaves the show on a fun note and sometimes the news is depressing and the pun gets you back to being happy ( if only to know that you arent the worse joker around!)(No offense there carl). Keep those lame puns coming carl!(agin, no offense)

    Carl, without a doubt, keep the puns. They might not always be funny, but at least they bring a smile to peoples' faces, and they aren't hurting anything, so why stop doing them?

    I know your puns are corny but you should keep them!!! The puns make me laugh a little even if sometimes I don't get it, but it somehow brightens up the social studies class so that it's not that boring. 😉

    The puns that are after the news should stay. yes its true there cheesy but its alot better than just ending the news with goodnight or somthing ! i hope you decide to keep them they bring a smile to my face everytime !

You were in our end of the year slideshow last year because we love you ,and your puns so much. We even have a window in the classroom that says "We Love Carl Azuz!". KEEP THE PUNS!!

  361. Benita

    You can't possibly consider doing away with the puns. No matter how corny they might be my students pay close attention trying to see if they can catch them. It is also a way to have a "teaching" moment as the puns enrich our language. Maybe Carl can work on his delivery of them; it often appears to be him that would like to do away with them.

    September 7, 2008 at 9:27 pm |

    My 175 World History students voted almost unanimously to keep the PUNS! They groan at and love them. As a former English teacher, I appreciate the exposure they get to some of the subtleties of the English language.

    This is the Eddie from above, I was wondering if there was anyway to get the podcast of the news report that I was mentioned in...I don't know if anyone still checks the blog this far back but I hope I'll be able to get a link to the podcast.
