The 50 Funniest Puns In The History Of Funny Puns

Puns can be classified in various ways:

 

The homophonic pun

“Atheism is a non-prophet institution”, the word “prophet” is put in place of its homophone “profit”.
George Carlin

A homographic pun

“You can tune a guitar, but you can’t tuna fish. Unless of course, you play bass.” The phrase uses the homophonic qualities of “tune a” and “tuna”, as well as the homographic pun on “bass”.
Douglas Adams

Homonymic puns

“Being in politics is just like playing golf: you are trapped in one bad lie after another”, puns on the two meanings of the word lie as “a deliberate untruth” and as “the position in which something rests”.

Don’t be so homophonic

A pun differs from a malapropism in that a malapropism uses an incorrect expression that alludes to another (usually correct) expression. Like the above title.
