For those who like a good laugh, this book of original puns, daffynitions, riddles, and shaggy dog stories fits the bill. Many of these will make you laugh out loud, so be careful reading them in the bathroom at work. The puns are divided into subject areas, such as animals, sports, and education, so you're sure to find a pun to fit any occasion. A special section at the end has some of the best puns (both one-liners, and long-form) from various pun competitions and online forums around the English speaking world. As an inveterate punster, who can't pass up any opportunity to fall on his words, I appreciate the work and thinking that went into this lovely volume.
