Editor’s Corner: Fun with Puns

How about a Wednesday pick-me-up? Today I bring you a list of Puns for Educated Minds. Uncertain about what a pun is? A pun is a play on words, or according to Merriam-Webster, it is “a humorous way of using a word or phrase so that more than one meaning is suggested.” Thanks to Debbie S. for sending this in!

Note: I’ve edited this list to remove extra spaces and misplaced hyphens. Additionally, I removed puns that some might find objectionable.

· I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island, but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian.

· She was only a whisky-maker, but he loved her still.

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

· 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.

· A hole has been found in the nudist-camp wall. The police are looking into it.

· Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway. One hat said to the other, “You stay here; I’ll go on a head.”

· I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.

· A backward poet writes inverse.

· In a democracy, it’s your vote that counts. In feudalism, it’s your count that votes.

· A vulture carrying two dead raccoons boards an airplane. The flight attendant looks at him and says, “I’m sorry, only one carrion allowed per passenger.”

· Two hydrogen atoms meet. One says, “I’ve lost my electron.” The other says, “Are you sure?” The first replies, “Yes, I’m positive.”

· Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root canal? His goal: transcend dental medication.

· There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.
