The Terrible Pun Thread
« on: August 08, 2013, 06:29:56 pm »

Bad puns. Everyone knows they are terrible. Often times, they don't even make sense, or lack a proper double meaning. Yet, there are fans of these abominations of language and common sense. To which side do you fall?

Feel free to post any particularly good or bad puns you have encountered or created.

I tried to buy some perfume from a vending machine, but it was out of odor.

As long as we leaf the tree puns alone, we'll all be vine.

I'm sure some of you guys already seen this one before, but:

Visual puns allowed?

Otherwise, an addition to the royal army has been made; his last job was as a mime, so this winter holiday, he'll be heralded as the silent knight.

Three men are in a boat, with 4 cigarettes but no matches. How do they smoke?

Throw one cigarette overboard and make the boat a cigarette lighter!



I don't think this is a pun... meh.
It's a riddle... riddlepun.

A compulsive amnesiac had the urge to make art; but as soon as he had an idea, he drew a blank.

I sent in nearly a dozen puns to a competition on a pun website.  I was hoping at least one of them would get featured, but no pun in 10 did.

Seems you put all your eggs in one basket there.

Okay, not the best one.

If I bought some makeup substitute, would I have just bought a rougelike?

I'm trying to think of a pun that dwarfs all the others, but I seem to have too much elf control. I'll try not to make a hobbit out of it.

I never could make puns. If they aren't unintentional I wouldn't ever make them.
