Witzelsucht: The Pun Disease | Jamie Frevele ,The Mary Sue

As a lover of word play--as both a sender and receiver--I'm not sure what to make of this. Should I be concerned or just amused--and observant?

Frevele writes:
An upsetting mental disorder has been discovered, and it concerns your brain and the delivery of puns. It’s called witzelsucht, and it causes people to make jokes, puns, and engage in what could be considered inappropriate conversation and/or behavior — and probably annoy people. Which is sad, because being a person who voluntarily makes bad puns all day is one thing. Not being able to control your bad puns is another.
For the moment, I'm just amused.
