Remember, if you don’t pay your exorcist, you can get repossessed.

Mid -week pun time …

I have run across these Indian Hills Community Center signs from time to time and admired the wit of the punster behind them. The Center It is an actual place and these signs are changed a couple of times a week for the Colorado folks in the vicinity.

Here is a selection of signs that tickled my punny bone.

Some mid-week pun fun

Hopefully, these help you to get across hump day. Remember, when the smog lifts in Los Angeles U.C.L.A.

Halloween hump day …

I thought it might be fun to celebrate Halloween this year with a variation on pun day. Don’t worry, punsters, there are still some lurking in these.

More mid-week puns …

See what happens when I put something out like the item with puns last week and you don’t complain? Now you are stuck with more of my humor.

Remember, when fish are in schools, sometimes they take debate.

Some puns for mid-week (with a P.S.)

Since so many of you have commented favorably on my Weekend Funnies, I thought I might tender forth some fresh humor in the form of double entendre. In view of my previous experience editing and writing for men’s magazines, you might call these punography.

When I was in high school more than one teacher described puns as “the lowest form of humor.” With the benefit of more than 60 years of hindsight, I would beg to differ. I think they are a very high form of humor. It has been my experience that the people who enjoy and use puns are, in fact, some of the most intelligent ones I know. So you can draw your own conclusions if you don’t like them.

For the record, Wikipedia says, “The pun, also called paronomasia, is a form of word play that exploits multiple meanings of a term, or of similar-sounding words, for an intended humorous or rhetorical effect….”

I like this reference from the same article, “Non-humorous puns were and are a standard poetic device in English literature. Puns and other forms of wordplay have been used by many famous writers, such as Alexander Pope,[19] James Joyce,[20] Vladimir Nabokov,[21] Robert Bloch,[22] Lewis Carroll,[23] John Donne,[24] and William Shakespeare, who is estimated to have used over 3,000 puns in his plays.

So, now that you know all about them, here they are:

PS I just learned that today is World Mental Health Day. Coinciding with my first Puns for mid-week – a coincidence? I think not.

 

Enjoy!
