Since I completely spaced out doing the OFST this week, I'm pulling from my archives. Enjoy!!!
Puns & Other Word Play
Many see puns as cheap humor, one-liners, or groaners, despite their prevalence in our culture. They are most often seen in the names of businesses, or advertising. Others, like the writer Jonathan Swift, see them as a challenging art form, where one shapes words like a cobbler bends leather. 'Punning is an art of harmonious jingling upon words,' said Swift, 'which, passing in at the ears, excites a titillary motion in those parts; and this, being conveyed by the animal spirits into the muscles of the face, raises the cockles of the heart.
However the dictionary describes a pun as:
A play on words, sometimes on different senses of the same word and sometimes on the similar sense or sound of different words.

WOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO TGIF!!!!

I;’m in late, but I took the day off and slept in.
Never been....never mind.
I got here as quick as I could.
As if my life weren’t trying enough,
I have to live on a street spelled Gough.
I just can’t see the reason, though;
Why not pronounce it simply Gough?
And if slough is slough to rhyme with through,
Why the deuce can’t I say Gough?
Or if you’re saying plough and bough,
What’s wrong with just plain Gough?
You can lead a horse to the watering trough,
but you can’t make him drink—
And I WON’T say Gough
