PUNS and Spoonerisms
« on: October 30, 2007, 02:06:13 PM »
A pun is of course also known as a play on words .  They most often deal with cliche' , however they can also delve into other areas of languge such as anachronymn.  Examples of such will be cheerfully provided upon request .  Spoonerisms are where beginning letters or consonant sounds are traded within a phrase or name .  Our highly esteemed and much learned colleague "Dane Bramage" is obviously aware of this form of humor .
Lets begin with a pun about a sign .  It is a sign on the door of the Orthodontists office .  Not just any any orthodontist mind you .  This is a self-service orthodontist .  Do you know what the sign says ?


                                 BRACE YOURSELF !

Hey JP !  Did you realize that vintage American made motorcycles are mentioned in the Bible ??   
  That's right , it is written that " the sound of David's Triumph was heard throughout the land . "
