Hear about the dyslexic man who would eat too much dessert, then immediately go play at the lanes?

He suffered from pie-bowler disorder.

The unemployed man was married to a woman who was never satisfied. When he finally got a job, she was irate nonetheless. “Now,” she said, “you are home less!”

Imams don’t like it when people lose a lot of weight. I knew one who even issued fatwas.

When men become priests, they often get tattoos on their bellies, because they are permanently ab staining.

LIBRAIRHEAD

Dear Pungents, a woman I work with does not pronounce the word ‘library’ properly. She says “lie-berry” as in, “If I do an interlieberry loan can I take the book out of the building?”. She’s in her late 20s, not kindergarten. It’s starting to freak me out. I’d like to correct her without sounding like little-miss-micro-manager-pants. ~Ainsley, Ottawa, Ontario

AS THE PUN GENTS SEE IT:

1) “I have to be honest with people when they make mistakes. I don’t lie berry well.”
2) “You know which country is most mispronounced? Liberia.”
3) “You know what my favourite fruit is? Strawbraries. I also like bluebraries.” [repeat for as many berries as there are]

FEET ME A LINE

Dear Pungents, I am a podiatrist, I work with feet. I know the obvious ones, but if I have to put up with smelly feet, I’d like to inflict puns as revenge. Please help! ~Ali, Sydney, Australia

AS THE PUN GENTS SEE IT:

1) “Man you got some stinky feet. What do I look like – a poodiatrist?”
2) “Take care of your feet. Don’t make me say I toe’d you so!”
3) “What’s stinkier than an union bun? A bunion pun.”
4) “I met a cute chick who had a nasty infection. I didn’t care though, she’s a fun gal.”
5) “Podiatry is ironic. Cuticles, for example, are ugly.”
6) “A toes, to podiatry! It puts foot on my table.”

If you’re Hindu you should never let your mom drive. It’s bad karma.
