Religious Fundamentalists

Category: Puns, Rated G, Rated PG, Short Snorts

A friend of mine is very inclined to religious fundamentalism. Among other groups, he has been studying the Quakers, the Mennonites, and the Amish. He just cannot decide whom to join, and this has become a source of great confusion and anguish to him. Hypertension and cardiac symptoms have resulted. Finally, he heard some very helpful advice in a TV advertisement – “Ask your doctor if your heart is strong enough for sects.”… Read the rest...

Season’s Greetings, said the Salt to the Pepper

Category: Rated G, Shaggy Puppy

Mike Franklin submitted three variants of this seasonal pun.

I used to know a guy who absolutely loved hollandaise sauce. He would buy the sharpest brand he could find and would put it on just about everything. Well it turned out that because he used the spicy sauce so much, it started to wear down a hole on the roof of his mouth. He went to a doctor and asked what he could do about it. The doctor looks at … Read the rest...

Soccer? I barely know her!

Category: Rated PG, Short Snorts

Knowledge of Premier League football will help with this submission by Dave Wallace.

Like many of us, I’m embarrassed when I can’t remember the name of a person after our initial introduction.

Now, I want you to know that I have a system for remembering names by spotting some characteristic of that person and creating an association, or index as a prompt or hint to recall the … Read the rest...

A Seasonal Feghoot

Category: Puns, Rated G, Shaggy Dogs

Mike Franklin sent in this little adventure of our friend Ferdinand Feghoot.

On a December trip to Frostbite Falls, Minnesota, Ferdinand Feghoot was summoned to the local college, Wossamotta U. by Inspector Fenwick, the Chief of Police. There he was confronted with an appalling scene. Bullwinkle, the town’s leading citizen, had been smashed flatter than a kippered herring by a falling safe.

“It’s a common enough means of death for cartoon characters,” Fenwick opined. “Every year we lose five or … Read the rest...

Just Duckserts

Category: Rated PG, Shaggy Dogs

Submitted by Mike Franklin.

Three women die together in an accident
And go to heaven.

When they get there, St. Peter says,
‘We only have one rule here in heaven:
Don’t step on the ducks!’

So they enter heaven, and sure enough,
There are ducks all over the place.
It is almost impossible not to step on a duck,
And although they try their best to avoid them,
The first woman accidentally steps on one.

Along comes St. Peter with … Read the rest...

People Afraid of Saint Nick are Claustrophobic

Category: Rated G, Shaggy Puppy

This seasonal, somewhat shaggy submission is from Joe Blake, who says:

“A very new pun. Not sure if the rest of the world knows who Lara Bingle is, but remember Google is your friend.”

Super model, Lara Bingle, decided that she was going to introduce her new range of beauty and hygiene gel products with a super Christmas promo. For one week people would be able to attempt, in one of the upmarket trendmarkets, to guess how much a huge … Read the rest...

Ralph D. Jeffords said the following:
