David Letterman Tackles the Worst Jeremy Lin Puns

Worst Jeremy Lin puns

Jeremy Lin’s rise from obscure benchwarmer to NBA sensation has been the feel good story of February. However, there has been a dark side to the New Knicks point guard’s improbable ascent: the terrible, awful puns based on his last name. 

For whatever reason, sports writers and fans can’t stop making Lin’s last name into words like “Lin-credible” and “a Lin-derrella story.’ And, of course, the gold standard of Lin puns “Lin-sanity.”  David Letterman had some fun with this on the ‘Late Show’ Wednesday night, offering up a top ten list of “Worst Jeremy Lin Puns.”

Hmm. A lin-termittent windshield wiper could come in handy on a rainy day. And a lin-terest-bearing lin-vestment grade financial lin-strument seems like it would have a high yield.

Will Letterman’s mocking of all these Lin puns finally put an end to the, uh, lin-sanity? Probably not. When it comes to the compulsion to have fun with the phenoms last name, at this point we’re probably all lin-fected.
