Pun-ishing Tales: The Stuff That Groans Are Made On

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
No, it's not about BDSM, S&M, or anything kinky. It's a book of groaners, humorous short stories (some *very* short) that are sometimes peppered with puns throughout but which *always* end with them. If you enjoy word play, or just enjoy something to groan about, you'll have fun with this collection. "All in the Holster" ends with what is the author's "mother of all groaners" to date.

Review by: Carl Brookins on Nov. 09, 2011 :
I don't do puns. I don't even like them all that much, especially when they appear in book titles. I was provoked, or challenged to read this one by the author. So I did.

Have you read Aesop's Fables? This volume is sort of like that, although maybe without quite as much depth or significance. It's a group of short or very short stories, many involved with crimes, including the crime of punning. I laughed as some, groaned at others. There are good puns and not so good puns or plays on words here. It's fun and worth every penny.
