Now, how many of you thought that was a type, eh?

This is the sort of thing we would do to each other around the dinner table when I was teenager.

Was this some form of PUNishment?

I remember reading a National Lampoon "article" on geographical puns (my mom was a subscriber back in the day, meaning early-mid 70s.).

Two I've never forgotten:
I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island, but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian.

Hey bro, let me have a Tokyo hash.

Of course, puns in two languages are even more fun. Back when I used to go to Mexico, my Mexican friends had a favorite:

They would wave me over, and tell me "Ven por aqui'".

Badump bump....

Oh come on, if you're going to have fun with a word in another language that sounds like a different word in English, then can you really beat phoque?

I still find it too difficult to supress a smile when I hear French speakers talking (or writing) about seals even after having been subjected to it for decades. Guess I'm just a bad person.

In my defense, I haven't heard it come up in French convo very often.

That reminds me of a joke a friend of my ex-wife told me years ago in New Orleans...

A vacationing penguin is driving his car through Arizona when he notices that the oil pressure light is on. He gets out to look and sees oil dripping out of the motor. He drives to the nearest town and stops at the first gas station.

After dropping the car off, the penguin goes for a walk around town. He sees an ice-cream shop and, being a penguin in Arizona, decides that something cold would really hit the spot. He gets a big dish of ice cream and sits down to eat. Having no hands he makes a real mess trying to eat with his flippers. After finishing his ice cream, he goes back to the gas station and asks the mechanic if he's found the problem. The mechanic looks up and says "It looks like you blew a seal."

"No, no," the penguin replies, "it's just ice cream."
