Overview

As Oscar Levant said many years ago, "A pun is the lowest form of wit, especially if you didn't think of it first." In this lively collection you'll find a hilarious abundance of pun-ishment for the millions who can't resist giving a word or phrase a twist... and ammunition for many occasions from movie, TV and theatre wags; from the wits of Wall Street and Washington... the gems from poets and pundits and some of the bottom-of-the-barrel crumbs!

Golf is like taxes. You drive hard to get to the green and wind up in the hole.

A monastery in financial trouble decided to go into the fish-and-chips industry to raise revenues. One night a customer knocked on the door and a monk answered. "Are you the fishfriar?" the customer asked. "No," the robed figurereplied, "I'm the chipmonk."

The book also contains a PUNdix, a PUNabridged dictionary and a collection of the best... and worst... jokes in the world!

All-new material from the author of the Complete Pun Book, with an introduction by Bob Hope.
