I actually had another post scheduled for today, but after receiving this list of “puns” via email from my friend Ann, I couldn’t resist sharing them with you. Nooo…I don’t think Ann wrote them nor was there an author credited for this fine compilation of work. But the list made me laugh (and actually think for once, which is really kind of weird for me) so that’s all that matters. 

And please don’t comment that any of this “offends” you in some odd way. If you do, I promise I’ll relentlessly make fun of you.

See you Tuesday!
