The Gift of Humor: Puns for Christmas


I have always believed that puns are the highest form of humour.

Just in case you don’t know what on earth I’m talking about, here is the definition of a pun according to the internet:

Noun:pun/pən/
A joke exploiting the different possible meanings of a word or the fact that there are words that sound alike but have different meanings.
SO: by definition, puns require the pun-ER to be witty and the pun-EE to be smart enough to get it
Some PRIME examples of excellent PUNNING:

Nerd humor, anyone? It’s a FERROUS WHEEL!
Heheheh. Clogged… LITERALLY.

In light of the incredible humour inherent in puns (which has just been fully demonstrated), I propose that we Unleash the PUN of Christmas this year. What do I mean? LET me show you.
PUN-DERFUL GIFTS!
Get it? Rein-BEER?? 
Don’t be boring. Don’t Serve the Christmas ham NORMALLY this year.
Serve up some HAM SOLO!
Um, who wouldn’t want FREUDIAN SLIPpers for Christmas?
The perfect gift if you are planning to propose a TOAST, no?
Need a punny gift? How about some punny products like BABUSHKUPS???
These are magnets:

CHICK MAGNETS! Definitely on Christmas lists this year: Functional and Funny!

These are soaps: GET IT??? HAND SOAPS???

Dabbling in decoratives is an ongoing obsession. I love having a go at This, That and the Other. . . tackling projects that tickle my fancy, hoarding costumes (for the "Someday" that I own a dress-up tea-house for grown-ups) and hosting themed parties whenever I am not immersed in teaching French and Writing to high school students. In the interest of full transparency, there's something serious you should know: I overuse the ellipsis . . . frequently. Embarassingly enough, it seems to be the punctuation that best captures my stream of thought as it flits off of one subject and towards the next!

  1. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images
    aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a
    linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

    1. Thanks for telling me, and sorry about that! I use Google Chrome and they seem to be loading well for me, but I will see if I can check/verify the images in other browsers!
