Time For More Puns!

But first, a necessary disclaimer --


And now, behold the results of my selfless research forays into the depths of history, grammar, science, romance languages and the great works of literature, all in search of the most elusive and greatest puns I could find --

Remember, I do it all for YOU. No, no, please, there is no need to thank me.









You can't fool me -- I know how much you secretly love puns!

Lol. Love them!

Deedles said...

I love all of these, being quite the pun lover myself. The tent one had me chuckling. I feel kind of stooped, but can someone explain the one with the kitties?

Bob Slatten said...

Sorry to say it took me a hot minute to get the cat one.

I am ashamed.

Carol Blackburn said...

I ohhh'd, I awwwww'd, I moaned, I groaned.......I still have this little smirk on my face and am laughing silently inside. Thanks!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Deedles -- The kitties one is a pun on the French words for counting from one to five: un, deux, trois, quatre, cinq. This is bilingual Canadian humour at its best, lol.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ itsmyhusbandandme -- Groan! Then LOL!

Adam said...

The revolt meme should say "Early Modern English hasn't been invented yet"

Deedles said...

Thanks for explaining that one, Debra. It was going to drive me crazy and since I took Spanish back in the dark ages, I never would've gotten it. Clever.

laurie said...

I absolutely love them all, you find the best!

Totally the best ever. Might have to enlarge Euclid, frame it and hang it in the house!

Leeanna Henderson said...

The cat pun got me wondering until I listened to it in my mind and then I understood. Thank goodness for my nanny teaching me french long ago.

Jono said...

The wurst of Thames? OMG!

Karen Ann said...

Ha! The Errorist!!!


lady M said...

Very clever. I am gonna steal that equestrian one. His Lordship had to explain the cat pun as I can't count in French past three.

^.^ said...

I love puns and jokes, especially now that I am starting to understand them after 35 years in this country ... I remember my husband explaining a joke literally to death for me ... and I still didn't get it ... it was kinda funny ... ya kinda ... Anyway ... Love, cat.

Guillaume said...

Elsie Amata said...

I feel like I just had a conversation with my husband and oldest child. They love puns and could go on and on for hours. Seriously. Road trips can be a tiring. <---see what I did there? You're welcome. I'm just as good as they are.

Have a beachy week!

Wish I could make up puns. I don't have that gift.

John Gray said...

The Thames puns were great x

Magic Love Crow said...

These are so bad, they are good! LOL! Thanks Debra! LOL!

Kay G. said...

You might guess I like puns! Anything that makes most people groan, I either laugh out loud or giggle like a schoolgirl!

Sorry about the Canada loss in the women's hockey...I didn't see it, I only heard about it!

Fundy Blue said...
