Fun With Words Part 2

This week I was going to write about how the 6 – 10 inches of snow that was predicted here turned into 2 feet instead.  I was also going to write about it taking two days to shovel our our cars.  Then I thought people have probably had enough of stories and complaints about the weather so I chose to continue what I started last week.

In our local paper, John Usalis included 30 puns in his column.   They brought a smile to my face and I shared 10 of them last week.  This week I would like to share 10 more.  If you live in the East and are dealing with the snow I hope this makes you smile.  If you live where the weather is not an issue I hope these help brighten up your day.

  1.  The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine was fully re-covered.
  2. A grenade fell onto a kitchen floor in France, resulting in Linoleum Blownapart.
  3. You are stuck with your debt if you can’t budge it.
  4. Local Area Network in Australia:  The LAN down under.
  5. He broke into song because he couldn’t find the key.
  6. A calendar’s days are numbered.
  7. A lot of money is tainted: “Taint yours, and ‘taint mine.”
  8. A boiled egg is hard to beat.
  9. He had a photographic memory that was never developed.
  10. A plateau is a high form of flattery.

Next week I will post the last 10.  I am not good at word play.  How about you.  Any you would like to add to the list?

  11. Perhaps this is because I can’t sing to save my life, but this one has me laughing and laughing:He broke into song because he couldn’t find the key.
