We've narrowed down all the punny entries from last week's Best Pun IN THE WORLD!! Competition and settled on the following 10. As with the caption contests, we're letting YOU guys pick the winner. One vote per person, please, and may the best pun win!
The 10 finalists are:
A) Two fishermen were in a boat by the lake, when one of them stood to catch a fish in a net. As he scooped up the carp, his wallet fell out of his back pocket. As the seemingly doomed billfold started to sink to the lake bottom, the carp slipped out of the net and swam after it, re-emerging with it on his nose.
However, instead of returning it, he tossed it to one of his fish buddies, who balanced it on his nose. More of more of fish-buddies emerged from the water, and all of them played this strange game of keep-away with the man's billfold.
The first man watched, slackjawed. He said to the other "Have you ever seen anything like this before?"
The second man answered "Sure I have. Haven't you heard of carp-to-carp walleting?"
B) A thief attempted to steal paintings from the Louvre in Paris, but was caught 2 blocks away when his van ran out of gas. All the thief could say for himself was: "I had no MONET to buy DEGAS to make the VAN GOGH. But I tried for it anyway because I had nothing TOULOUSE!"
C) "Did you see this story? Says here that a newspaper published a report about election fraud, and some goons from the ruling party went and attacked their offices."
"What did they do?"
"Oh, toppled file cabinets, threw paper around, smashed monitors..."
"Any loss of life?"
"No, it looks like just a monitor-y loss."
D) I've been reading something very interesting — Stephen Hawking's latest book about anti-gravity.
I just can't put it down.
E) Ancient humans, venturing across the ice bridge to North America, got lost quite often. They found it very hard to keep their Bering Strait.
F) Kay Nein's English Bulldog, Og, had just been awarded "˜Best in Show' and she
felt a celebratory ice cream from Calabash's Frozen Doggie Treats was in order; however, what she had intended to be a single scoop in a cup quickly evolved into a glop of every flavor available - leading Kay to comment, "It's a mishmash, Calabash, give Og a cone!"
G) Thanks to fossils, archaeologists have been able to determine that there once a genetic mutation millions of year ago, causing the creation of a five-legged dinosaur.
As far as we know, this is the first evidence we have ever seen of a reptile dysfunction.
H) What do you get after playing the lute for 10 hours straight?
[Ed. Note: Feminine hygiene jokes are the lowest form of humor. Period.]
I) I tried to come up with a pun about famous German philosophers, but I Kant.
J) Did you hear they found a narcissistic male lion whose females had turned on him?
Yeah. Course it was his pride that did him in.
