'''News puns''' are common to [[In The News Node]] and [[Sensationalist Headlines]]. At several points they have been made bannable, but current SH rules permit "shitty puns," as well as [[News pun#Austin Powers pun|Austin Powers pun]]s.

Sometimes news puns are accompanied by an image of Austin Powers. The first Austin Powers pun was made on July 23, 2009 by [[DoctorBerry]] in a thread about a drunk man who stuck two hammers up his ass.<ref>{{Post|777367|16211994}}</ref> DoctorBerry observed that he must have been "hammered," and posted the image. The next four pages of the thread were made up entirely of Austin Powers puns, before [[ventilated]] arrived and threatened to permaban further punsters for [[meme shit]].
 
  
After this incident, [[In The News]] rules were amended, stating that anyone who posted the image would "lose their mojo for some time."<ref>{{Thread|778697}}</ref>

To celebrate April Fools' Day, [[Hezzy]] declared that March 31 to April 7, 2010 was Mojo Week, for which Austin puns would not be bannable, and he "encouraged" them.<ref>{{Thread|916790}}</ref>

PREPARE FOR MAXIMUM SHREKENING
  
On the 28th of April, 2012, user [[Echo78]] posted a thread in Sensationalist Headlines titled: Man forced to moonwalk at gun point.<ref>http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1180235</ref>
 
  
The OP linked to an article by the Huffington Post about a man who was forced to Moonwalk at gunpoint.<ref>http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/26/man-forced-to-moonwalk-at-gunpoint_n_1455058.html</ref>
 
  
Shortly after, user [[Dippeggs]] posted: "That felon should really look at the man in the mirror." Which got him banned by [[Dav0r]] for 3 days<ref>http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1180235&p=35736823&viewfull=1#post35736823</ref>, which was extended to 7 days shortly after for "Being an idiot." after posting: "I like a good thriller."<ref>http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1180235&p=35736924&viewfull=1#post35736924</ref> in response to [[Rents]]'s comment about how if you're going to stick a gun in someone's face it might as well be funny.<ref>http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?p=35736906#post35736906</ref>
 
  
The puns continued for the rest of the thread, which caused the Moderators to continue banning people, causing the entire thread to be derailed.<ref>http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1180235&p=35737746&viewfull=1#post35737746</ref><ref>http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?p=35739161#post35739161</ref>

After 4 full pages of non-stop puns and comments about the bans, the Moderators decided to re-add the "No puns" rule, until they became "legal" again.<ref>http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1089075</ref>
