TRIBUTE TO A POPE-ULAR GUY!

Dear Pungents, I need a pun about the pope’s recent surgery to use at the hospital where I work. Please help!
~ Rob, Kingston, Ontario

AS THE PUN GENTS SEE IT:

1) “Don’t give up Pope!”

2) “When the doctors inserted the tracheotomy tube, all they heard was a loud popeing sound.”

3) “Let’s hope he gets well soon, since he’s so pope-ular!”

4) “The pope was tired, so the doctors told him to trach (“trake”) five.”

5) “I hope the pope gets well. He’s such a powerful guy. His influenza is felt around the world!”

LANCE IN YOUR PANTS

Dear Pungents, what can give me about a 60-year-old male named Lance who is infatuated with a new lady-friend and is acting like a swooning teenager? ~ Les, Duncan, BC

AS THE PUN GENTS SEE IT:

1) “That man is a snake! He is carrying on like it’s an affair-de-Lance!”

2) “He’s acting so strangely! It baffles me how this new woman continues to be excited about visiting such foreign Lance!”

3) “Our male friend gets on our nerves every night - I’m tiring of Lance a lot!”

4) “I’m just not N’Sync with Lance’s Bass desires!”

RENTAL GIANTS

Dear Pungents, I loved the story in the Post! Both I and my mother-in-love adore puns and punditry so we wish you the best of luck.

AS THE PUN GENTS SEE IT:

1) Affordable Rentals – it’s the lease you can do!

2) City Gardens Leasing: Lettuce let you!

3) Good Relationship Properties: where Meeting the ‘Rents isn’t so painful.

4) Cosmopolitan Rentals: where urban meets turban

Howard from Victoria:
I sing in a Chamber Choir and we had to take a long break one evening after an incident. We had been singing lustily, something we knew and had a full head of steam up. Our Choral Director brought us to an abrupt halt with “No, no, no…..” and I said audibly, “Don’t you just hate chorus interruptus?”
