I can’t explain why I did this, but in the days and moments leading up to the halftime show by The Who at Super Bowl XLIV, I kept posting twisted and sick puns of Who song titles and lyrics to my twitter account. A few weirdos joined me in the fun.
Like most puns, some of these are astoundingly bad examples of wordplay, but what the heck: here is the complete collection of Who Horrors for your amusement, my embarrassment, and, well, posterity.
