It’s not just a pun, it’s a raunchy pun. Because Shakespeare is nothing if not raunchy.

Yup. The conversation went something like this.

Bro: *lets loose with a barrage of unfunny dirty jokes*
Rune: Noooothing!
Bro ….
Rune: Dude, that’s a dirty joke. You didn’t get it.
Bro: Of course I got it, I just didn’t think it was funny.
Rune: “Nothing” is Elizabethan slang for girly bits
Bro: *laughs uproariously*
Rune: Now you get it. See, it is funny.
Rune: And “Much Ado about Nothing” is a pun
Bro: O.O

Now I’m afraid he’s not going to realise just how obscure that is, and go about lecherously saying “nothing” every third sentence. My work here is done.
