Merl Reagle came up with several horrible puns for today's Los Angeles Times crossword titled "Sounds Like Fun." One of the worst is CONNICKSECTIONS ("Parts played and sung by Harry?"). Another answer, BROWNIEINMOTION ("Girl heading out to sell cookies?"), likely will make no sense to anyone who is not a physicist. But one of the puns was pretty clever: "'Hey, longshoremen, keep it down,' for example" was PORTNOISECOMPLAINT.
