Another one a friend came up with (and that made me laugh out loud, which I presume is the purpose of wanting cheesy one-liners in the first place)...

"Is that a poisonous dart sticking out of your thigh, or are you just happy to see me?"

Well, we're in TL4, but we speak the same way as we do in real life. Like I speak similar to this.

Then why did you specify it was TL4? What difference does that make?

Well, in TL4, I wouldn't know about some of the poisons discovered later, correct? So if I say a pun relating to a poison discovered in, say, TL6, then I would have said something my character is not supposed to know. Or so I would think.

Presumably so we don't make puns about poisons developed with advanced technology. Just sarin'.

So you don't pollonium the wool over someone's eyes?
So your toxins aren't ricin to the occasion?
So when they ask for MRSA, you do give them some?

Unfortunately that doesn't quite fit in my headspace. Anachronisms are anachronisms. Y'all have fun now.

Yeah, it's nice to avoid anachronisms, otherwise you're just putting dioxin before the cart.
