This is definitely a good source of puns. If you’re unclear on the use of puns and its effects, please hunt for this book in the library. One of the hardest things to analyse and explain is humour. There are so many different types!

I shall leave you with this quote that all English teachers know deep deep deep in that warm, caring, generous hearts of theirs when they grade your papers:

“Here will be an old abusing of God’s patience and the king’s English.”
-William Shakespeare, The Merry Wives of Windsor
