    I am a big fan of word-play. My fourth grade teacher got me started on puns and I have loved them ever since. So who has a good pun like "Is the Eiffel Tower just another parasite?"

    I remember reading a book called "Howlers", which had a lot of puns in it like, "Cleopatra died after she was bitten by an Aspidistra".

    I also watched an HBO comedy fest where Dana Carvey did an excellent impression of George W. Bush: "Like the Floundering Fathers said, 'All men are secreted equally'."

      When Dana Carvey was on SNL, he did some great presidential skits.

    Do you feel mired in debt because you just can't budge it?

      That was great. With all the bright people on this site I knew there had to be a few more pun-worshippers.

    Hanging is too good for a man who makes puns; he should be drawn and quoted.
