From the winner of the 1995 O. Henry World Championship Pun-Off. Puns! Glorious, horrible, brilliant, ridiculous puns. Puns in history, in different languages, in literature, in anthropology. Puns and brain science. This is a playful yet serious look at the fun some folks have playing with words. Good training for the first Bull City Pun Championship--coming soon to a bookstore near you!
