A pun-filled life is better than .... May 6th

Some weeks end up being nothing like what you expected them to be or what they were "supposed" to be, and life plays tricks.  This is one of those weeks, with news all the way around that was unsettling, and events that either did or did not take place as planned.  Jimmy's total left knee replacement surgery scheduled for last Monday was one of those things that didn't take place.  Due to unforeseen circumstances, his surgery was postponed (again), but the surgeon is hoping to get him fixed up in the next week or two.

Rather than sit around and stew about things over which we have no control, I thought I'd offer up some of the best "groaners" I've seen.  My sister sent me these puns a while back.  Hope you enjoy them!  Life is short; enjoy today!

The fattest knight at the Round Table was Sir Cumference.
He acquired his size from too much pi.

I thought I saw an eye-doctor on an Alaskan Island,
but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian.

She was only a whiskey-maker,
but he loved her still.

A rubber band pistol was confiscated from an algebra class

No matter how much you push the envelope, it’ll still be stationery.

A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was
cited for littering.

A grenade thrown into a kitchen in France would result in
Linoleum Blownapart.

Two silkworms had a race.  They ended up in a tie.

A hole has been found in a nudist-camp wall.
The police are looking into it.

Time flies like an arrow.  Fruit flies like a banana.

Atheism is a non-prophet organization.

Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway.
One hat said to the other,
“You stay here, I’ll go on ahead.”

I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger.
Then it hit me.

A sign on the lawn at a drug rehab center read:

The other says, “Are you sure?”
The first replies, “Yes, I’m positive.”

Then there was the person who sent ten puns to friends, 
with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh.
No pun in ten did.


  1. Groan, for Jimmie and the puns...

  2. Sorry to hear about the delay on Jimmie's knee replacement, sure hope that the doctor can get it rescheduled quickly.

    A few of those gave me a laugh but most were groaners! ;-)


    1. My favorite is this: She was only a whiskey-maker, but he loved her still. Made me laugh!

  3. The watermelon said "let's run away and get married;" the melon replied, "sorry I cantaloupe."
    Groans and laughs to start the day ... chuckle, chuckle. Sorry the surgery was postponed again.

  4. Oh Nickie, what a woman you are! Thinking of something fun to share in the midst of it all. I can learn from you. Here is hoping the knee surgery is coming soon. And that everything else turns around for the best as well. Your garnets made me groan......or maybe I was just groaning anyway...
