Know when to Fold'em

A man came home from a poker game late one night and found his hideous harpy of a wife waiting for him with a rolling pin.

"Where the hell have you been?" she asked.

"You'll have to pack all your things, dear," he ad-libbed. "I've just lost you in a card game."

"How did you manage to do that?"

"It wasn't easy, honest. I had to fold with a royal flush."

Just to set the record straight - He's not Gay

So we know this guy (lets call him Chris) who works in the Industry (lets call it the film industry) and his new company hired him cause they thought he was gay. But he's not gay or happy when he's with other men, he's not even a double adapter. The problem started when he went to a reqruiting agency and they asked him about his hobbies. "I love cooking and photography", he replied.

So because his hobbies aren't rugby and pub crawling and he's single they assumed that he was so gay - a real queen!. No he's got a problem - If he comes out of the closet and tells them he's not gay he might not get a RAISE (I''m talking Salary). On the other hand he's scared that they might take advantage of him when they had a few to many Smirnoff spins.

A few punny jokes

Just a couple of lines about the snow in Rivonia

So it's the biggening of August and Joburgs been hit by a cold front and for the first time in 8 years it actually snowed. Not that the people in Rivionia are surprised, as you can see on the picture they've had snow all year round.

The Worst Billboard Ever

This Billboard was spotted last year on William Nichol Road. It was for a Cellphone shop and I don't think Vodacom would have approved. (Please Note: This isn't a photo of the actual billboard, it's been recreated for the purposes of this blog)

The Amazing Race - Family Edition

The Amazing Race- Family Edition started showing on South African television last week and imagine how surprised we we're when the only black family in the race surname is 'Black'. So we decided to adopt this family as Pun City's favourite contestants and we'll be rooting for them.

For the benefit of viewers with ADD, this year’s token black team is conveniently enough named the Black family. They are very nicely wearing blinding tie-dye T-shirts so you can distinguish them from other teams.

Who wants Wackhead when you can get Punhead

Paul Rotherham is not only a well known DJ on Radio Station 94.7, but he's also the superhero of puns, dropping them at every occasion.

When asked what is his favourite pun he replied:
"It's priceless! Though out of context like this it really wouldn't make much cents."

We'll try our best to get a interview with Paul for this blog. Watch this space

No pun intended

So you must be wondering what on earth inspired us to make a website about puns..... Before I go into detail let me first explain exactly what a pun is.

Definition: A pun is the clever or humorous use of a word that has more than one meaning, or of words that have different meanings but sound the same.

It's kind of like word play taken overboard and most people really find it irritating, hense the word- 'PUNnishment' (I can see you cringing)... Well that's exactly what this blog is about, it's a way for us creatives to let go of all the puns inside us and to let them all just mingle in Pun City.
