Puns


Article by: Amber Arsenault and Dezirae Givens
Edited by: Sofie Albert

What is a pun? A pun is a joke exploiting the different possible meanings of a word or the fact that there are words that sound alike but have different meanings.
In this pun they are taking 6 states and renaming them out of food. The food is made out of the shape of the state. Making a rhyme to make a good, funny pun.
In this pun they want to run away and get married which mean elope but the cantaloupe, can't elope.
This pun is considered a “bad” pun because Taylor Swift has a song called “bad blood.” Which makes it sound cheesy.
This pun is funny because they take an animal and compare its to a funny object making it a funny pun.

  1. Puns are also something that elementary school age children LOVE as they unconsciously work on their use of language! It is a fun way for them to manipulate language.

  2. Dear Ms. Arsenault and Ms. Givens,

    I appreciate the puns throughout this article, I've never seen them before and it's refreshing to see a refreshing slew of "bad jokes." An added sense of humor is explaining the joke afterwards, which humorously detracts from the joke itself. Good work.

    Sincerely,
