It is said that a pun a day keeps the doctor away. let's have fun on this thread by bringing up original or almost original pun quotes and phrases. Let's make good puns and make new pun converts.

For those who don't really know what puns are, here is a definition:
" the humorous use of a word or phrase so
as to emphasize or suggest its different
meanings or applications, or the use of
words that are alike or nearly alike in
sound but different in meaning; a play on
words."

Its not limited to words alone, we can pun with pictures too. After all, a pictures could speak more volumes than a thousand words, so we are free to use it too.

For puns that could prove too subtle and deep for easy understanding, please be on deck to explain them. If your pun is not original or from other sources or in common use please state it and you are free to post it.
The most liked original pun posted will be taken as the pun of the week. Please like them when you see good ones and if they don't pun criticise with good reasons.

Let me quit explaining and start with examples of mine in subsequent posts.

I like European food so I decided to Russia over there because I was Hungary. After Czech'ing the menu I ordered Turkey. When I was Finnished I told the waiter 'Spain good but there is Norway I could eat another bite'.

Okon the DWARF is intelligent and HIGHLY respected, yet no one in the town LOOKS UP TO HIM.


I used some words in upper case so that new pun converts will understand.



Wow! My thread made front page after a year and 6 months of being left unnoticed. Never give up, just keep doing what you do best and one day.....just one day...
