Mike Crabb’s PUNch-Out


Recently my understanding of pun was challenged by both Mr. Mike Crabb, and a Mr. David Huffman. My favorite type of joke is of the kind I describe as “question and answer.” I was of the understanding that this type of joke was different than what I thought of as the pun proper. My criteria for a proper pun were basically as follows:

1. It occurs in natural discourse.

2. It does not require a setup, fictional or otherwise.

3. It involves the use of homynym.

It turns out I was wrong on the first two counts. So, my beloved question and answer jokes ARE puns.

    Not time to punt on punning.

    The pun is really the highest form of wit known to the human race.

    You can do so much wit it.
