PUN FUN! [And Other Wordplay]
« on: May 11, 2011, 01:23:49 PM »
I thought for those who love a good (or bad  ;) ) pun, we really ought to have a thread specifically to accommodate them.  So here we are.

Basically, just post your pun-related comments here.  They can either be short, one-liners, or full jokes or riddles.  Whatever you come up with that you want to share.  You can also include non-pun stuff if it involves wordplay to 'work'.

I'll start with one I just came up with.

Only if you are one of the many who enjoy practicing 'self abuse'.  ;)

Co-worker: I was supposed to get my broken windshield replaced yesterday, but the guy never showed. He told me I was on his schedule.

Me: Sounds like you slipped through the cracks.

Co-worker: Yeah, and then I e-mailed him about it, and blah blah blah blah...





Stealth pun.

 :D  I enjoy ninja punning myself (and, like so many who enjoy a good pun - such as yourself - we can end up with great ones coming out often without intending them to [e.g. recently with the massage therapist who works on my back and neck injuries: she was talking about delays in the state setting up licensing to help validate those who actually do real, healing work.  In a response, part of my comment was, "seems like that's the most pressing issue for you," (a phrase I would not normally use) only after saying it - and getting her response - realizing the 'pressing' had double meaning for her.]).

Those are the best kinds.

Indeed!  [Though occasionally, for (hopefully) comedic effect, I will exaggerate the pun words... that usually works best with 'lesser' puns: ones that seem 'too obvious'.  For smooth ones (like 'slipped through the cracks') just regular vocal tonalities seem most enjoyable to deliver.]

Sweet!!  A 'functional' pun!  From whence does one 'pull down' an idea like that, one wonders?

PUN FUN?! Pfft, every pun under the sun has been done. Name one pun that's never been done and I'll be stunned. And if you start running off a ton of puns, I'll go get my gun.

Somebody comes up to me, says "I just saw two ducks in that fountain".
"Impossible" I snort back.
"What? Why?"
"It's a total pair-a-ducks!"

*cracks knuckles*

I heard CBS Publishing sold one of its subsidiaries to the Detroit Tigers.  From now on, they'll be publishing sports books under the "Simon & Scherzer" label.

But enough about my proctology degree.

I'm not a Stephen King fan.  "The Stand" was too much to take sitting down, "The Shining" was rather dull, and "It" didn't do much for Me.

Never ask a terrorist for a balm.  You'll just get burned.

And two other things for lovers of this sort of chicanery: One I cannot claim for myself (just saw it on a website) -
"A lion never cheats, but a Tiger Wood."

And a video of some of the better wordplay you'll get in good, clean comedy for the whole family, the One Ronnie:
