Sorry, but I couldn’t resist.
It’s just too darned funny.
And then I got to thinking.
Now, I hear all of you groaning, even as I type this.
“There he goes, thinking again…”
“Honestly, I don’t know where he comes up with these notions.”
“You call that thinking?”
Well, okay then…
Let’s call it musing.
I begane to wonder if many people would read this cartoon.
Not just here, but in syndication, as well.
I mean, there’s an awful lot of words, in a rather small space.
And it ends with a pun.
Lot’s of people don’t like puns, for some unknown, god-forsaken reason.
As far as I’m concerned (with apologies to Dean Martin):
♪♬♬♩♩ “You’re no punny til some punny loves you…” ♪♬♬♩♩
This may come as a shock to you, but I have a theory about why people hate puns.
I think it has to do with the way puns are presented.
Puns are usually crammed down your throat, by people trying to convince you how funny they are. But puns are way more effective when they come in under the radar. I think the best pun are the ones most people don’t get, because they aren’t paying close enough attention.
Of course, the price of paying attention these days being what it is, and all…
I especially like the ones that just plain sneak up on you
Kinda like the one in the cartoon above.
Or the ones in this video.
I love puns.
Which is why I follow Pearls Before Swine.
He’s had some world-class doozies…
I really hope you like them too.
