Worst Puns

Having heard this shocker in Eric

"Don't you know the classics?" "That isn't one of those Horse Races we're supposed to remember is it?"


I thought we needed a sort of opposite to the favourite quotes thread to share them :?

I don't have the book on hand, but in Wee Free Men Tiffany comments to the toad that he's looking rather yellow for a toad. He replies that he hasn't been well.

He's [wait for it] a yellow sick toad and Tiffany has been told to follow his advice. :lol:

Sadly that's the kind of humour that can't work in translation when it relies on words sounding similar or having multiple unrelated meanings :(

In Guards! Guards! Vimes refers to the coffee that Harga serves him as: "love in a canoe". It took me a while to get that one, but I thought it was very funny when I did. :lol:

I have to admit I didn't get that one till I saw it explained somewhere on here :(

But I did laugh when I reread it
