Its not a pun-- just a parable. Sometimes the only way people listen is through parables- which make the point easier to get through to many.
I personally agreed with it.
Also, I have to add that yes, we are living in a toxic, mean-spirited hateful World- but it only became that way because of humankinds' choices made starting Centuries ago-- starting from Adam and Eve and bad choices being made to this day.
Even disease never was intended by God- but is a direct cause of a corrupted physical World (affecting genes in humans, plants , animals) being corrupted from disobedience of spiritual laws starting with Adam and Eve. Satan knew this ahead of time, but only told Eve what she wanted to hear. Eve didnt have to listen to him, but she did.
Many people blame Satan for all the disasters and wars going on. Its true that negative entities such as Satan instrument alot of the crap going on in the World, but mankind has only to blame itself for allowing these things to happen.
Even Natural calamaties- as in this recent Tsunami-- are nothing more than this Earth trying to purge the evil created by mankind. The Earth is vomiting and trying to cleanse-- and unfortunately human populations are affected if they are in the disaster's path.
Even in spite of War and natural disasters-- God is always there to help man learn from it, and to be restored often better than before.
