“PUN-FUN, ON THE RUN” – by Des Kelly
MORE PUN-FUN, guys & gals, to keep you reading and enjoying these favourites for the simple reason that they will fascinate you, in their simplicity, yet teach you a thing or two about the English language. Our eLanka mate Maxie Gerreyn sent them out to me, and I would like to thank him for it. While thanking Max, I would also say a big “thank you” to all of you good people who are involved with submitting articles to our great website and also subscribing to it occasionally.
We value your contributions, and rest assured that e’Lanka only picks the best submissions for publication.
Advertising with e’Lanka is also providing amazing results, from what I hear, and it pleases me very much that this website with was initially formed for Lankan/Aussies only, has now spread World-wide, and to date we relish the fact that we have around 25.000 members, each of whom get their weekly newsletters without fail, in many Countries globally. I am very proud of the Captain of H,M,S.L.Ship e’Lanka, Neil Jayasekera, and crew, both in Australia and Sri Lanka. Please remember to make your comments and donations to our “cause”, because it is exactly this, that helps us to keep the engines of this great Ship running smoothly. Thank you all again, in anticipation. Enough said, now let us get back to “Pun-Fun, On The Run”.
Whether you love them or hate them, the Art of the Pun
should not be punderestimated (sorry), as it takes skill to craft
comical wordplay that can make people laugh and cringe at the same time.
One group to master the art of funny puns, is the Indian Hills
Community of Colorado, who’ve been making regular punny
roadside signage to the delight of everyone. Samples below.
The man behind the jokes is Colorado native and volunteer at the community center, Vince Rozmiarek. He made his first sign five years ago as an April Fools prank and has never looked back
With the aim to make people laugh, Rozmiarek puts up a sign with a new pun or joke a couple of times every week.
