“I can’t stand broken tripods”

The term “I can’t stand” (meaning “I hate") usually doesn’t involve standing, but there are jokes.

“I can’t stand broken tripods” was posted on Twitter by Darren Walsh Puns on July 15, 2010. “I can’t stand broken tripods” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on August 4, 2022.


Wikipedia: Tripod
A tripod is a portable three-legged frame or stand, used as a platform for supporting the weight and maintaining the stability of some other object. The three-legged (triangular stance) design provides good stability against gravitational loads as well as horizontal shear forces, and better leverage for resisting tipping over due to lateral forces can be achieved by spreading the legs away from the vertical centre.
