Too many puns spoil the broth?

Frankly I couldn't care less if Gordon Ramsay had an affair or not, and I don't see what gives the British press the right to report it even if he did. But without getting into a highbrow ethical debate on media privacy laws, let us simply celebrate some more outstanding punning by the Sun newspaper today.

Yesterday I briefly mentioned how the red-top had incorporated a series of food/affair puns on its front page. Today it took this one stage further by printing a whole MENU of such puns, including:

WELSH RAREBIT-ON-THE-SIDE

ROMP STEAK

and

LOVE RATATOUILLE

My pun idea:

A WOMAN SCONED

And as for an answer to the question I have posed in the title of this posting...THE MORE PUNS THE BETTER! Let's be honest, puns are never about subtlety!
