Puns are ubiquitous (whether you like it or not) — and while truly funny puns are complex linguistic feats that demand respect, bad puns are dangerously easy to make (and can also be surprisingly funny). Even though fathers who can’t stop making dad jokes like to think they’re the masters of the punderdome, we all secretly love corny humor (there’s even a science to it). What is a pun, really? Simply put, a pun is a joke that exploits the different possible meanings of a word, or words that sound alike but have different meanings.
There are as many funny puns out there as there are things to pun about (meaning, everything). There are dog puns, cat puns, food puns, animal puns, even puns about puns. The most important thing is memorizing as many of these very funny puns as possible, so you’ve got a zinger ready for every occasion.
