Do you enjoy a little fun with words?

Then you might be a LEXOPHILE (LOVER OF WORDS.)

I love StumbleUpon. Never know what I’ll find when I push that orange button.


I smiled as I read through the list of puns and wordplay. Wish I were this imaginative. Of course, I’ve my husband and grandchildren to keep me in the pun game. They a never at a loss for a few.

Of the 46 listed, these are my 10 favorites.

  • #4. A backward poet writes inverse.
  • #13. You are stuck with your debt if you can’t budge it.
  • #17. A lot of money is tainted: ‘Taint yours, and ‘taint mine.
  • #21. The short fortune-teller who escaped from prison: a small medium at large.
  • #24. If you jump off a Paris bridge, you are in Seine.
  • 29. Marathon runners with bad shoes suffer the agony of de feet.
  • #32. She was only a whiskey-maker, but he loved her still.
  • #38. A hole has been found in the nudist camp wall. The police are looking into it.
  •  #41. I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.
  •  #45. When cannibals ate a missionary, they got a taste of religion.
