“She won’t techno for an answer”

"Techno” (a form of electronic dance music) sounds like “take no.” A pun was posted on Twitter by “Shelf Side Spurs” on August 4, 2011:

“My mates new girlfriend is a hardcore raver and keeps trying to get him into it. She really won’t techno for an answer.”

“One of my friends is a really hardcore raver. She keeps trying to make me rave with her, and she won’t techno for an answer.”—a popular form of the joke—was posted on Twitter on December 27, 2012.


Wikipedia: Techno
Techno is a form of electronic dance music that emerged in Detroit, Michigan, in the United States during the mid-to-late 1980s. The first recorded use of the word techno in reference to a specific genre of music was in 1988. Many styles of techno now exist, but Detroit techno is seen as the foundation upon which a number of subgenres have been built.
