I was going to continue with serious lessons, but today I ran into two comics that are not only both on the same topic, but they illustrate one of the finer points of punning.
Type 1: When the pronunciation of the misused words is the same,
Type 2: When the pronunciation is almost the same,
Which reminds me of my sister’s favorite pun, which goes something like this: “I thought that was water dripping from your nose, but it’s not.”
She has a fiendish laugh to go with it.
