PUN: A Play On Words….

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

.

I looked in the dictionary for today’s post.

It said, PUN: a play on words; the humorous use of a word or phrase so as to emphasize or suggest its different meanings or applications; the use of words that are alike or nearly alike in sound but different in meaning.

And, do you know, it was right.

Enjoy!

He says, “Boy, I just created a 24-hour period of alternating light and darkness on Earth.”

“Call it a day,” says God.

  1. I, too, confess – I appreciate the clever silliness of puns! And sometimes we create them in everyday conversation without even thinking about it. Good ones today with appropriate illustrations.
