-Tab Kimpton, "Minority Monsters"
From Reddit, in a thread which also brought up the pet tortoise named Voldetort:
ETA: Also apparently someone had a deafblind dog which got named Helen Smeller.
"Heaven's Design Team"' has a bit with horse puns which wasn't substituted for English puns in the manga translation, so Jupiter calls a horse-like prototype animal "taste-y" and Mercury groans. I didn't get it till I looked up the word for horse. "Umami" means savoury, and horse is "uma". I learned a thing! (In the anime subtitles he makes a comment about horseradish instead.)
On a drawing of an equine zombie:
Line I brought to Out Of Context Quotes about "Peppering your dialogue with random Australianisms does not koala an Australian accent" is irrationally annoying me because they didn't take the opportunity to say "koala-fy as".
I'm probably going to make everyone hate me by including a line in a serious story about the Russian gulag system in which a Soviet guard named Rudolf tells his coworker it's about to rain.
Spoiler: Transphobes CW
Yesterday I learned that there is slang for the kind of transphobe who sounds suspiciously like they think desperately wanting to not be your assigned gender is the universal experience of being that gender, and it is... *drumroll*... "rotten egg."
just watched Stephen Colbert make a pun that got him the loudest groan i've ever heard from a studio audience:

5:39 to 6:05 or so
Now determined to get back into Hetalia fic so I can include a scene where Argentina tells England to stop leaving breakfast food lying around.
There was a fanfic which sadly got deleted which I vividly remember from about fifteen years ago, in which someone made a comment about an insufficiently disguised Harry Potter ripoff with clumsy re-names: "What's next? Matthew Mettishrunk?"
Friend mentioned to me that mansplaining could also be called "correctile dysfunction".
