A Christmas Break from Serious Writing
A Clever Play on Words
If you’re like me at this time of the year with thoughts of Christmas crowding your mind, beautiful church services and fellowships, cantatas, family visits, shopping, decorating, and parties, you probably don’t have the time nor the brain power to concentrate on any serious writing. So…I’ll get back to posting blogs about writing good fiction in a week or two. For now, I’d like to give you a little Christmas breather and help you have a chuckle or two through this stressful season. Let’s look at some really clever writing.
The following puns are not from my creative juices. I received them in an email about two years ago with no byline. So enjoy my Christmas gift to you for 2015:
Crazy Puns to Make You Laugh (or Groan)
