Punsters are individuals who are blessed with the ability to see and create puns in everyday conversation. They do this via wordplay, homophones, homonyms, and being comedic geniuses.
If you know a punster, you’ve probably rolled your eyes more than a few times. You may even have tried to punish them for being hilarious. This post is intended to help you understand and love the punsters in your life. I’m no pundit, but I’ll try to help. I only have twenty minutes.
1.) Laugh. While an honest punster makes puns for the sheer pleasure and joy of it, they also appreciate it when other people get the joke. If the joke’s about a forest, branch out and enjoy their sense of humor. It will boost their self-esteem treemendously. If it’s a pun about cows, let the joke moove you to a chuckle. Even if you’ve herd it before, punsters udderly enjoy repeats.
2.) Have patience (even if you’re not a doctor). If nobody laughs at first, a dedicated punster will usually repeat the pun with greater emphasis until you at least acknowledge the genius of it. Nurse their comedic ego back to health. Give them a shot of confidence. Even if it’s complete pundemonium, keep cool.
3.) Join the fun! If their pun is humerus and you feel the kneed to get a leg up on the competition, share your own! Even if it’s lame. Even you feel defeeted afterwords. Don’t kick yourself. You’ll toetally heel. And if the punster is any friend at all, they’ll laugh patiently at the joke. Maybe yule get better by Christmas.
And what do you know? I finished on time. How punctual.
