The Punny Side - The Return of the Pun

(Pun - a play on words, also called Paronomasia)

A good pun is its own reword.

At one time I had a part time job as a Security Guard. When I first tried on my uniform - a pair of very baggy pants with a loud red stripe running down the leg - I was mildly horrified. But my wife was philosophical, and said:

"It's okay, honey. You're just a victim of circus pants.
A friend of mine was having problems with her laptop. "It's driving me crazy," she said. "The A,E and I keys are sticking."
I diagnosed her problem and said:
"Your computer is suffering from irritable vowel syndrome."
Two girls were talking at the bar one night. I couldn't help but overhear their conversation. The one next to me said "Can you believe it? I still haven't got my pictures back from my vacation."
To which I leaned in her direction and said,
"Don't worry, dear. Someday your prints will come."
Did you hear about the Buddhist monk who refused pain-killers during a root canal?
"He wanted to transcend dental medication."
When I read in the news that a man had jumped off a bridge in Paris, I thought:
"That man's in Seine."
What's with all those chicken-crossing-the-road jokes anyway?
"If you ask me, it's poultry in motion."
Show me a piano falling down a mine shaft, and I'll show you:

"A-flat minor"

Evidence has been found that legendary archer William Tell and his family were avid bowlers. However, all the league records were destroyed in a fire. Thus, to this day we'll never now
"For whom the Tells bowled. "
