Grr!
Let this be a terrible warning to all writers! When you insert a joke, some people will insist on taking it seriously :-)

You're not alone. The whole business of literary criticism is littered with unwarranted deep analysis. Reading commentary on Shakespeare, I sometimes want to take the writer by the throat a la The Simpsons and shout "D'oh! It's just a PUN. A JOKE. Geddit?!!"
