During a discussion of appetizers kadyg might cook as a chef:
K: I'll save that one for when I open up my S&M-themed restaurant.
B: ...
K: ...?
B: You know, if you do open that restaurant and it served Asian food ... you could call it the Masochism Panko.

Ow.

Keeping with (both) themes, make diners solve a Zen riddle to get served corn in the traditional manner: offer 'Koan on the Cob'.

It's all about context sometimes. For instance: If you're at the brunch in an Asian S&M-themed restaurant, be very certain you know exactly what you're ordering when you step up to the deep fryer and ask for some Tao-nuts.

* "Tao" is pronounced with an initial 'D'. But you knew dat.

(I thought it was actually an unvoiced, unaspirated stop that therefore has no good romanization in English.)

(No good romanization. As distinct from no possible romanization that even comes close, of course. c.c)

So it one milixanth 1/1000th of the groanworthy pun content of the average Xanth novel, then? (The average, mind. Some are more or less punny than others.)

That's the general reference of it -- although the scale's off, because an entire book worth of moderately bad puns has a bigger cumulative effect than even the most horrible single one-liner.

I'd rate it a bit more modestly: a Xanth (1000 millixanths*) is the groan value of the median pun in one of those novels.

--
* However, this is NOT equal to 100 centixanths. Because a centixanth is a Xanth crossbred with a 100-legged insect.**
** Any longtime Piers Anthony reader should have seen this one coming.

You're missing a level of pun...

Especially in combination with GDR in the same post. You'd have to figure out something interesting to adress the issue of Berlin, the former east german regime, masochism, and asian food. Definitely fusion cuisine.
