# 202 That Was Punny

Thank goodness we live in the USA.  According to an article in, the silly little puns are banned in China.  Maybe the last one should be dedicated to the Chinese government...


Puns and other word games

"The late November ban on “the irregular and inaccurate use of the Chinese language, especially the misuse of idioms,” technically only applies to press, broadcast and advertisements, but it carries a chilling message to China’s netizens: the party is not amused by your clever use of wordplay to discuss verboten topics online."

So to the rest of us, let's hope these puns put a smile on your face.

To write with a broken pencil is pointless.

Show me a piano falling down a mineshaft and I'll show you A-flat minor.

When Peter Pan punches, they Neverland.

I did a theatrical performance about puns. Really it was just a play on words.

A bicycle can't stand on its own because it is two-tired.

There was once a cross-eyed teacher who couldn't control his pupils.

A small boy swallowed some coins and was taken to a hospital. When his grandmother telephoned to ask how he was a nurse said 'No change yet'.

The butcher backed up into the meat grinder and got a little behind in his work.

I was struggling to figure out how lightning works then it struck me.

A new type of broom came out, it is sweeping the nation.


Thanks for reading # 202 of 7777.
