If you are looking for a joke that is going to reel in your friends, and have them hooked on puns, fish puns might be the real answer to your prayers. Why you are praying about fish, I’m sure I don’t know, so I’ll just assume it was for the halibut.
Fish puns are a bit of an acquired taste, but if you continue to carp on the topic, your friends will soon sea that these little treasures are a fisherman’s delight. Make sure they can hear you, and if not suggest that they might need a herring aid. Just make sure that when you are starting on this, you aren’t hanging around with anyone named Susan, because anyone can tell you ‘Sue, she raw.’ She is a bit of a stoner though, because once she seaweed she gets all wrapped up in it.
Now don’t think that to be a star, fish puns are all you can do. Throw in a whale of a riddle in there, and people will begin flipper’ing their lid. They’ll start claiming you have no sole and your life has no porpoise, but that means they are trying to steer you into fresh water even though you try and remain salty. Eventually, they’ll proclaim that they cod’nt take another fish pun, but that just means they want a moray. If you really feel they are net coming back and are splashing at the end of their line, tell them to kiss your bass and go find some friends that can withstand this punning fin-nomenon.
