Some Puns Intended

“A good pun is its own reword.” -Author Unknown

Yesterday was a special day— along with the inauguration of our new President it was also my 38th wedding anniversary. Therefore, I did not spend much time at my computer. I also wanted to continue in my feel good mode so I decided to blog about something that makes me smile—puns. I know puns are sometimes frowned upon, but not by me. I enjoy and appreciate the clever use of language whether I find it in a poem, novel, essay or pun. Here are a few favorites.

The roundest knight at King Arthur's round table was Sir Cumference. He acquired his size from too much pi.

She was only a whiskey maker, but he loved her still.

A rubber band pistol was confiscated from algebra class because it was a weapon of math disruption.

The butcher backed into the meat grinder and got a little behind in his orders.

No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery.

A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was cited for littering.

Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie.

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

Atheism is a non-prophet organization.

A chicken crossing the road is poultry in motion.

The short fortune-teller who escaped from prison was a small medium at large.

The man who survived mustard gas and pepper spray is now a seasoned veteran.

In democracy it's your vote that counts. In feudalism it's your count that votes.

When cannibals ate a missionary, they got a taste of religion.

Don't join dangerous cults: Practice safe sects!

My special thanks to Jerry for sharing these. If anyone has more to add, I’d love to hear them.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Jane-

I love puns- even when they make you groan...

Yeah, there were some groaners - but funny!

Congratulations on 38 years! That is wonderful. You're about 20 years ahead of me...

Happy anniversary!
