Know any good (bad) puns?

Asked by LostInParadise (25782points) July 8th, 2010

Puns have been described as the lowest form of humor, maybe because they are language specific. I don’t care what anybody says. I have a weakness for them and word play in general. I just came across a recreational math book with a beaut of a title, Here’s Looking at Euclid. Do you have any favorite puns to share?

In case you did not care for the book title, I present to you the amazing triple pun. A cattle rancher leaves his property to his sons. Since the enterprise was never given a name, they decide that coming up with a name should be the first order of business. They choose to name the ranch Focus, because that is where the sun’s rays meet.

Did you hear about the agnostic, dyslexic insomniac? He stayed up all night wondering if there was a dog.

And the ultimate:

There was a man named Ghandi who strove to make the world a better place. He eschewed shoes and so had tough feet, ate very little, and as a result of his poor diet, had ill health and dental disease.

He was a super-calloused-fragile-mystic-hexed-by-halitosis

My wife asked what was the combo on my tool chest, and I said, “Why was six afraid of seven?”
get it? GET IT?

@unused_bagels , I must be dense, not getting it.
Everyone else: Those are great, keep them coming.

A piece of string walks into a bar and asks for a drink.
The bartender says, “Sorry, we have a strict policy of not serving pieces of string.”
The string walks out, ties itself in a knot and messes up one end, and returns to the bar. The bartender says, “You look familiar. Aren’t you that piece of string that just came in here?”
“No, frayed knot.”

@LostInParadise because SEVEN ATE NINE! (which is my combination)

LostInParadise's avatar

I like the punch line, but you may want to work on what leads to it. I don’t see how this relates to the combo for the tool box.

unused_bagels's avatar

789 is my combo.

why is six afraid of seven?
because seven ate nine!

thought it was pretty straightforward ^_^;

LostInParadise's avatar

Okay, I see it now. The only change I would make is instead of saying that the hint was, why is 6 afraid of 7, I would say that the combo answers the question why 6 is afraid of 7. But it is a good one, and I gave you a GA for it. Pardon my density.
