Default OT Ping Tony Cooper

I'm pretty sure that Tony Cooper will appreciate this:

"Lexophile" is a word used to describe those that have a love for words,
such as "you can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish", or "to write
with a broken pencil is pointless." A competition to see who can come up
with the best lexophiles is held every year in an undisclosed location.
This year's winning submission is posted at the very end.


... When fish are in schools, they sometimes take debate.

... A thief who stole a calendar got twelve months.

... When the smog lifts in Los Angeles U.C.L.A.

... The batteries were given out free of charge.

... A dentist and a manicurist married. They fought tooth and nail.

... A will is a dead giveaway.

... With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress.

... A boiled egg is hard to beat.

... When you've seen one shopping center you've seen a mall.

... Police were summoned to a daycare center where a three-year-old was
resisting a rest.

.. Did you hear about the fellow whose entire left side was cut off? He's
all right now.

... A bicycle can't stand alone; it's just two tired.

... When a clock is hungry it goes back four seconds.

... The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine is now fully recovered.

... He had a photographic memory which was never developed.

... When she saw her first strands of grey hair she thought she'd dye.

... Acupuncture is a jab well done. That's the point of it.


And the cream of the twisted crop:

... Those who get too big for their pants will be totally exposed in the end.


ALWAYS LAUGH WHEN YOU CAN ... IT'S CHEAP MEDICINE.

Most of those examples produce a groan rather than laughter.

Good puns usually produce a groan, when the groaner is suppressing his
smile.

I would consider them all to be puns. While something may draw out a
pun from me, I'm no pun slinger.


Sorry, I thought that punning came with your enjoyment of linguistics.
