Q: What do you like about puns?
A:


+++automerged+++

I did a cryptic crossword today, and the answer to every clue was a pun.
What!? Only four letters for every answer? That must have been boring. Was it a punishment?

I'm writing a play with the compilers of the Oxford English Dictionary - they're quite and interesting group of people, and they are each choosing a favourite entry to talk about in their character, but I haven't come up with a title yet.

How about 'A pun'?

Why?

Well, it's obvious really, it's a play on words.

A Chinese friend of mine is writing a humorous article about wordplay for the newspaper. It's weird, but he still isn't used to the Roman alphabet and he mixes up some letters, like 'f' and 'p'. Nevertheless, I couldn't stop laughing when I read it.

Why?

Because it's very, very, punny.

A maths meme that is actually funny rather than stupid!
Solve carefully:
230 -220 x 0.5 =

You probably won't believe it but the answer is 5!

Diarrhea and Alzheimer are a terrible combination. You run, but you don't know where to.

Quite stupid. It's only 5 if you do the calculation left to right without caring about the order of operations. If you put it in something that understand that you get 120 instead. But if you do it regardless of BODMAS then 230-220 is 10 and half of 10 is 5. Easy.

Well, your honour, it's all a big misunderstanding. The security guard said it was fine with him when I asked if I could take a picture.
