Pini the Punster and the Pun Jar

Pini is a Punster. His father is a Punster. His grandfather is a Punster. His great grandfather was a Punster. His mother is a Punster. His aunts are Punsters. But Pini is the biggest punster of all.


A pun is a kind of joke. A pun makes fun of two words that sound alike but have different meanings. A punster tells a lot of puns. There are many Punsters in Pini’s family.


Pini tells many puns. Too many. Dad makes him a pun jar. Puns cost Pini one cent. Pini says that now his puns cost a pretty penny. CLINK! Pini puts a penny in the pun jar.


Here are some of Pini’s puns. Some you may get now. Some you will only get when you’re all groan.
