Synopsis:
The Pun Is Mightier Than The Sword...

Richard Lederer has great puns.  And you don't have to take vows to enjoy them.  Just Get Thee To A Punnery and laugh yourself int a state of grace.  Sinners will be punished with such gems as:

-Old Milkmaids never die -- they just kick the bucket.

-Drunk drivers are people who put the quart before the hearse.

Whether you like 'em hot or cool, straight-up or low-down, here are puns of every color, stripe and persuasion to suit your every whim.  Even if you don't know that your humerus is your funny bone, this is the book for you.
