Disaster is rarely as pervasive as it seems from recorded accounts. After absorbing the news of today, one expects to find a world consisting entirely of strikes, crimes, power failures, stalled trains, shutdowns, muggers, drug addicts, neo-Nazis, and rapists. The fact is that one can come home in the evening –on a lucky day– without having encountered more than one or two of these phenomena.
–Barbara Tuchman, author of The Guns of August (1962 Pulitzer Prize winner)

I chose the above tongue-in-cheek quote to serve as the introduction to this pun-in-cheek post because….well, because the post’s title had come to me as wordplay based on the title of Tuchman’s book, and I thought the quote would connect the dots….
Now that the dots are taken care of, let us turn to the pun, which, it’s alleged, is mightier than the sword….as long as you don’t get the point. Hahahahaha. The pun has been defined as a short quip followed by a long groan (which is punderstandable if you get the point, assuming it has a point, which would seem to be the point, otherwise what is the point?). It’s all very punfusing.
But enough about whatever that was about. Here are more killer puns (not mine, you’ll be pleased to know) for your edification. If you don’t suffer from edification, take them for anything that ails you.They’re guaranteed to cure every ill known to man. If you’re a woman, take them anyway, just in case you come in contact with man. Why take chances?
What do sea monsters eat for lunch? Fish and ships.
I’m reading a book about anti-gravity. It’s impossible to put down.
Having sex in an elevator is wrong on so many levels.
What do the Bermuda Triangle and sexy women have in common? They both swallow a lot of seamen.
I told some jokes about the unemployed, but none of them worked.
Thank God for nipples. Without them, boobs would be pointless.
I accidentally swallowed some Scrabble tiles. My next crap could spell disaster.
Vagina jokes aren’t funny. Period.
Thieves broke into my house and stole everything except my soap, towels and deodorant. Dirty bastards.
I couldn’t figure out how to fasten my seatbelt. Then it clicked!
People who say they suffer from constipation are full of shit.
I can’t believe I got fired from the calendar factory, when all I did was take a day off.
Speaking of taking a day off, I’m off for the next five days. I leave you with this disclaimer: I assume you are a groan-up and therefore I am NOT RESPUNSIBLE for any side effects, sound effects, after effects or any other effects resulting from reading this post, with the exception of an irresistible urge to send me money (diamonds and gold also accepted).
