#WordWednesday

Puns -- such great little groaners! Since I love playing around with words, here's a bit of information about this quiet little form of humour.

The word "pun" might possibly come from somebody messing about in the late 1600s with the word pundigrion, which might come from the Italian word puntiglio, which is a trivial objection or an equivocation, which sounds a bit like "punctilio – a very fine point of etiquette – though I don't think the words are related. Got that? I don't, but who cares?!

Laughter is critical...just for the pun of it. The pun also rises. This is the best pun a mother could have.I am so in love with my funny guy; he's the pun for me!
