It gets boring this time of year in Scotland. That's what I assume anyway, knowing that scientists in Aberdeen have developed software to turn a computer into a cold pun machine. Some of the jokes are funny! Most are not.

Q: What do you call a cross between a bun and a character? A: A minor roll.
Q: What kind of temperature is a son? A: A boy-ling point.
Q: What kind of tree is nauseated? A: A sick-amore.
