Love puns? Become a PUNTHUSIAST!

Many thanks to a) my cousin Lindsay D in Ottawa and b) “Word Porn” for this delightful selection of puns for all you punthusiasts out there. I’ve seen a couple of these before but there are many which are fresh in my mind – hope they are in yours too.

And by the way, there is no such word as “punthusiast” … until now! Please take note, all you lexicographers and other jokers, that the mighty (well, fat) Suze St Maur has coined this NEW WORD … plus a few derivatives…

Punthusiasts love puns and exude punthusiasm. We read punthusiastically. And who knows: one day there may be a new science called “punthusiology.”

Anyway … enough with the new words and on with some puns – the truly serious business:
