[Meta] Puns vs Jokes

Does anyone feel a little bothered by the blurring line between puns and jokes? I was driven away from r/jokes because it was essentially a subreddit of meta-reddit-puns, clever at first, but they quickly became predictable in the sense that the punchlines are essentially just play-on-words.

Is the general consensus here that the current state of the subreddit is fine? Do we need improvements? What are your thoughts on this matter?
