Including a preface that proves the mental superiority of the "punster", Mr. Yale takes his word play seriously. However, that may very well be the ONLY thing he takes seriously, as he spews forth over 800 original puns that will leave you amused, or face-palming, from beginning to end. Light-hearted, and occasionally adult oriented, there are few topics that are not covered.
I found HomesPun Humor entertaining, and truly enjoyed Mr. Yale’s obvious intellect. The diversity and scope of his humor knows no bounds, and if you are looking for a fun read that will stretch your mind, this is your book.
*A physical copy of this book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
The book includes very clever definitions (or daffynitions) of words such as:
Clap-board: Type of siding performers like on their houses
Tap Dancing: When water waltzes out of the faucet
Base Bawl: When a T-Ball player breaks down after he is tagged out at first base.
There are also very witty short stories that always end with a humorous play on words and leave readers giggling aloud. The punchlines always deliver and that is what helps to make this entire book a winner.
All that can really be said about this book is, “If you are looking for a book to make you laugh, that doesn’t require a heavy time commitment and will bring a smile to your face then pick it up and enjoy!” It is exactly as it claims to be – a compendium of guffaws, giggles and mirth.
Review by Ashley LaMar
Closed the Cover
We've all heard that phrase "No Pun Intended". In this book the pun IS intended. There are over one hundred pages of puns and plays on words. I am amazed that David can think up this many puns or "quips". I like to keep this type of book around for many reasons. For one thing, it makes me think a little. They are good brain exercises. Secondly, these are funny! Who doesn't like a good joke? There were only a handful of these phrases that you wouldn't want to repeat to your grandmother, but mostly these are jokes that can be told to any audience.
This type of book doesn't have to be read all at once. In fact, I didn't just sit down and read it cover to cover like I would a novel. I picked it up and read a little of it in the evenings until I had read all the jokes/puns etc. Certainly, there are few that are "cheesy", but that actually made them even funnier. But, there were some that had me groaning and rolling my eyes. LOL
All I can say is that the author as a unique talent for word plays and has carved out a niche for himself few could top.
Overall this is a delightful book to use if you need a clean joke for an occasion, or if just want a chuckle or two, or to give your brain a workout.
I give this one an A.
The puns are divided into subject areas, such as animals, sports, and education, so you're sure to find a pun to fit any occasion.
A special section at the end has some of the best puns (both one-liners, and long-form) from various pun competitions and online forums around the English speaking world.
As an inveterate punster, who can't pass up any opportunity to fall on his words, I appreciate the work and thinking that went into this lovely volume.
Still not convinced? Haw-ing and Hem-ingway too much? What the Faulkner you waiting for? Don’t act like a Dumas. Buy this book, and make it Swift!
