Has anyone referred to you as a ‘punny’ guy? Many people find puns to be some of the most intelligent form of comedy, although there are many that feel that it is utter silliness. There is nothing wrong with either opinion, but a good pun is judged by its ability to make everyone around you groan. Telling people how you lost your watch, but never found it because you just couldn’t find the time is fun and silly, but it made you smile just a little bit, didn’t it?
Pick your topic and begin attacking. A war of words is only as good as the person who lobbed the first bomb, so strike hard and strike fast. Never apologize or explain when someone doesn’t get the pun unless they ask. Saying a more obscure math pun like ‘a friend recently called me average, but then I realized he was being mean‘ might be the division in your friends, but the remainder will be the real ones. Puns multiply like that, and soon every one will be adding in their own, trying to equate your prowess.
Whatever your topic may be, or however your friends might react, puns are a great way to keep your mind sharp and your word comprehension practiced. Jokes, riddles, and puns make up a well balanced game breakfast, and you may be bacon to differ, but it would show the egg on your face. Get out there and ham it up and become a cereal punster already!
