What is a Pun?

A pun, or paronomasia, is a form of word play that deliberately exploits an ambiguity between similar-sounding words for humorous or rhetorical effect. Such ambiguity may arise from the intentional misuse of homophonical, homographical, homonymic, polysemic, metonymic, or metaphorical language.

I hope today's selection of puns can bring on a chuckle. If you don't get it the first time, give yourself a moment to let them sink in. Have a great weekend!
