When I read the title text, I at first thought that some people spell "dammit" with one m or something, because of the words "with two m's". Well, I certainly wondered how other people misspelled it. [[Special:Contributions/162.158.62.63|162.158.62.63]] 03:25, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

I'm familiar with the "pardon the pun" misuse thing from David Walliams' and Matt Lucas' short-lived BBC comedy series "Come Fly With Me", but this comic predates that by about a year. Perhaps XKCD is an apparently (to me anyway) seldom-recognised influence on Messrs Walliams and/or Lucas? Or maybe it's just coincidence. (P.S. I think it's probably just coincidence.)
