in reply to poll ideas quest 2016

What is the best type of pun?

  • Homophonic (different spelling) make terribly bad jokes.
  • Homophones (same spelling) sounds about right.
  • Heteronyms recreate the meaning of a sentence.
  • Visual puns, just have to be seen.
  • Any really good, bad joke.
  • None of the above
  • All of the above

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Best pun ever, by C. S. Lewis, quoted from here:

    Over dinner one night at Magdalen College one of the courses was haggis, the national dish of Scotland, which consists mainly of the blood and intestines of sheep. Seated next to Lewis was a visiting Portuguese dignitary who, while eating his haggis, remarked that he felt like a “gastronomic Columbus.” “Surely you mean a vascular da Gama,” said Lewis.
