Stupidly Funny Puns That Will Have You Rolling Your Eyes

Puns are the silliest and possibly the quickest kind of joke to deliver. They are very simple and only involve word play. By exploiting the fact that some words have multiple meanings or sound very similar, puns have a humorous or rhetorical effect. They are not new to human language. The Roman playwright Plautus was also known for his puns and word games, but they go back even further than Rome. They go all the way back to the days of Ancient Egypt and Sumer. Sumerian cuneiform and Egyptian hieroglyphs were originally based on punning systems. In fact, it has been credited as the fundamental concept behind alphabets, writing systems, and even the rise of civilization. (This may sound extreme but just read the book The Pun Also Rises by John Pollack to get a better idea.) At any rate, you can see the importance of puns. However, today were are not going to discuss how critical they are to society. Today we are going to talk about something a bit lighter. We’re going to enjoy their simple uniqueness, laugh at their silliness, and possibly brighten up our day. These are Stupidly Funny Puns That Will Have You Rolling Your Eyes.
