November 8: Abet and Aid Punsters Day

It’s Abet and Aid Punsters Day! Today, it’s laughing, not groaning, as you share the worst word plays you know! That means no “joke probation” on November 8. 🙂 (Yes, from childhood, my husband has spent quite a bit of time on joke probation, but he can’t seem to stop himself!)

Here’s one from the Punster’s Unlimited treasury (or registry!) of worst puns:

Though he’s not very humble, there’s no police like Holmes.

Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson

(Check here for a little bit of information and a lot of puns!)

P.S. November 8 is also Dunce Day. Check out last year’s post for one of the funniest historical etymologies I’ve discovered yet, and the reason for this holiday! (Okay, maybe “historical etymology” doesn’t sound very appealing, but, honestly, it’s hilarious!)

“He will yet fill your mouth with laughter
and your lips with shouts of joy.”

Job 8:21
