Fun with Words

Punster Extraordinaire

Punster Extraordinaire

I have loved all sorts of word humor, especially puns, since I was first old enough to get the joke.  My father excelled at punning, and I loved it.  At first, I thought it was just his gift, and then I discovered his whole family delighted in jokes with multiple word meanings, and when the family would get together, the jokes would fly.  So now I glory in puns, from “witty and clever” to the “groaners” and even those “puns for kids”.  So if you hate puns, this would be the time to go enjoy one of my other postings.  If, on the other hand, you love puns, too, here we go!

I was addicted to the Hokey Pokey, but then I turned myself around.

It was a sad day when the inventor of the Hokey Pokey passed away.  The trouble began, though, as they put Larry LaPrise into his coffin.  They put his left leg in…..

I was wondering why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me.

He bought a donkey because he thought he might get a kick out of it.

Why did the spider go to the computer?  To check his web site.

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

What do you call a room full of people who are staring at the ceiling and cheering?  Ceiling fans.

Corduroy pillows make headlines.

You can tune a guitar but you can’t tuna fish.

Why can’t you starve in a desert?  Because you can eat the sand which is there.

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

The invention of the wheel created a revolution.

A harp which sounds too good to be true is probably a lyre.

Pavlov?  That rings a bell.

….And that’s all my punning for today.

I hope you got some chuckles or groans out of them.  Do share your favorite puns with me.  I look forward to reading them!
