what's a pun...?

"Pun" (noun) - formally defined by Merriam-Webster:

"the usually humorous use of a word in such a way as to suggest two or more of its meanings or the meaning of another word similar in sound"

M-W goes on to explain its origin:

 The origins of pun...likely traces to the Italian word puntiglio meaning “fine point, quibble.”

And then provides a more common, easily understandable meaning:

"Pun usually has...to do with silly or humorous double meanings"

I think the examples in the article indicate that quite clearly.

I have always thought it was an odd term when birds are usually referred to as flocks.

2.1.4  igknorantzrulz  replied to  Buzz of the Orient @2.1    3 months ago

you don't have to keep crowing about it.

Maybe crows are criminal birds, and should be jailbirds.

I can't construct one at this moment, but I can share a famous one from "Alice in Wonderland":

“‘Mine is a long and a sad tale! said the Mouse, turning to Alice, and sighing. ‘It is a long tail, certainly,’ said Alice, looking down with wonder at the Mouse’s tail; ‘but why do you call it sad?’”
