My friends and I pun around a lot. In earnest? For sport? It is difficult to say. Constantly, at any rate. It has gotten to the point where I am more likely to say the pun than to say the word upon which the pun is based. These puns aren’t even good–by which I mean they are awesome. Or should I say: BOSSome? Here are several of the most common puns utilized by me and my pals:
(Im)PASTAble: (Im)possible + pasta
(Im)PAWSible: (Im)possible + paws (done with a pawlike swipe)
(Im)PAWSTAble: (Im)possible + paws + pasta
ConGRADUATIONS: Like I need to explain. This got a lot of use in the last month of school, but also all the time!
ConGRABulations: To congratulate someone on seizing something, like a job or a man or something.
That sounds grape! : This is to be said totally casually. 80% of the time, they think you said “great!”
APARROTly so!: Parrot + apparently.
What’s hampening? : Hampshire + happening. This is not mine, but Rory’s! Delivered casually.
Tanks! : Instead of Thanks.
Sew what? : retort –> Sew buttons!
Czech it out! : You only know this one is being pulled if you are chatting!
BEE right back! : Thanks Alison, for reminding me!
What’s GNU : not used more often than “what’s new?” but still a regular. Hard G.
