What is a Pun?

                     What is a Pun?

According to: www.literarydevices.net/pun,
A pun is a play on words in which a humorous effect is produced by using a word that suggests two or more meanings or by exploiting similar sounding words having different meanings.

Examples (well-known):
  • A horse is a very stable animal.
  • Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.
  • An elephant’s opinion carries a lot of weight.
  • What is the difference between a conductor and a teacher? The conductor minds the train and a teacher trains the mind.
Here are some of my original puns: JJJ
·         My aunts don’t like ants.
·         The lady dyed her hair before she died.
·         The fir tree lost its fur.
·         A lone person shouldn’t take a loan.
·         This young miner is a minor.
·         The impatient patient couldn’t stand the overwait of care.
·         Stella bought a styleless stylus.
·         The drug’s overdose made him overdoze.
·         She definitely has a flare for the theatre.
·         There was a glare coming off the egg.
·         Sorry, this isn't a fair fare.
·         The friar abstains from fryer and fried haze on Fridays.
