Everyone loves wordplay! This collection of more than eight hundred quips and pun-filled anecdotes will have your friends in stitches! Classics and new inventions fill these pages with humor and wit. Divided into chapters according to theme—animals, celebrities, careers, food, and so on—there’s a pun for every occasion! Author Gary Blake dares you not to snicker at his contrivances:

  • Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie.
  • Davy Crockett had three ears. A left ear, a right ear, and a wild frontier.
  • A backwards poet writes inverse.
  • Santa’s helpers are subordinate Clauses.
  • Like tavern owners, ballet dancers make most of their money at the barre.
  • Horses in the movies only have bit parts.
  • Why does the Pope travel so much? Because he’s a roamin’ Catholic.
  • Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder.
  • A Freudian slip is when you say one thing and mean your mother.
  • Eve was the first person to eat herself out of house and home.
  • I used to work in a blanket factory, but the company folded.
  • The calendar thief only got twelve months.


  • A great gift or coffee table book, there’s no time like the present to order a copy of Does the Name “Pavlov” Ring a Bell? for the word-twisting, pun-loving humorist in your life.
