In English, words with different meanings can sound similar. This can make us laugh.
Sound jokes are called puns. They are fun to create, and when we get (understand) a pun, we feel clever.
Sometimes, we also groan when we understand the pun. We call those puns groaners. They’re bad puns, but in a good way.
Ohhhh–that’s so bad, it hurts. Why am I laughing?
Do you get it?
Many cards and songs have puns in them. Newspaper headlines do, too.
Keep your eye out (pay attention), and you will see many puns in the headlines. They make people laugh, and they can convey a lot of information in few words.
