If laughter is the best medicine then puns are fucking Tylenol. Who among us doesn’t love to laugh? Heartless monsters, that’s who. Giggles are great for the soul, and anyone who actively denies this pleasure should not be trusted. Today we’re going to take a look at some hilarious, and some cringe-worthy, pun tattoos.
I remember quite fondly when I was a young boy the local paper would run an annual competition for the best reader submitted pun. Year after year I entered to no success. Finally in the summer of my 12th year I set out to win this competition and get one of my puns published by any means necessary. I spent weeks in my room crafting hundreds of puns. After three months, I selected the ten best puns and sent them in. I anxiously awaited the results. When the day came when the winners were announced, I was crushed. The newspaper was completely devoid of any of my submissions. I had wanted one of my creations to win more than I had ever wanted anything in my life. But sadly, no pun in ten did.
Just like a baby, a great delivery can make or break a pun. Just check out this amazing clip of Norm MacDonald deadpanning the world’s worst pun. It’s fucking hysterical, even though the material decidedly isn’t.
