Format: Paperback
While it is quite universally accepted that sarcasm constitutes the lowest form of wit, today the pun is often spoken of as if it were an immediate rival. Balderdash, I say!!! The pun-y fools who s-pun this web of lies, deserve to be pun-ished! These armchair pun-dits do not hap-pun to possess im-pun-ity, so somebody with a little s-pun-k had better be darn pun-ctual in dealing with the pun-ks- with all the pun-icious wrath of an ancient Pun-jabi warrior. Let us set about pun-cturing the figurative pun-net of their deceit! I'd certainly have no com-pun-ctions about o-pun-ly dishing out a series of pun-itive pun-ches (pun-ctuated only by a couple of pun-ctillious pun-ts up their pun-gent backsides)!

Anyhow, this is a very worthy exploration of the play on words. There's a fine Art to the pun and his surname is Moger! Having studied the pun in some depth, among other things he is in a position to reveal that 95% words in the English language can be incorporated into word-play (while the other 5% can be ex-pun-ged as im-pun-etrable). Just be warned that this book was published all the way back in 1991. Those who are hoping to accompany their afternoon tea with a 'current pun' may find themselves disappointed.

PS. What a howling shame that so many modern comedians favour potty-mouthed vocabulary over ingenuity of word-play. All we hear from certain popular comics is a tirade of effing and jeffing. These days, you'll even witness the S-word uttered on TV- before the watershed! What a terrible example for our youngsters! Anyone who fancies themself as a sophisticated humorist would do well to remember that "The pun is mightier than the S-word"!

Great Gift 29 Dec. 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I got this as a gift for my boyfriend who LOVES puns. I haven't given it to him yet but after reading through some of the pages I can say that it was a lot funnier than I expected (and I'm not the biggest pun fan sooo yeah!)

Not as funny as I expected. I love puns but you can find better stuff for free on pun websites.

Got this book as a present for my boyfriend's 80-year-old dad. He loves it! He's quite the pun-master himself, and I think he enjoyed that he could open to any page and find a great one. Highly recommend.

I bought this as fun gift for my literature teacher and he loved it! Great for anyone who can pun without even thinking about it (like him). The perfect gift for a punner of any age
