Punning in Circles

September 17, 2012 § Leave a comment

I’ve added another “page” to the blog, collecting the last three posts on puns into one easy-to-find, -follow, and  -digest location, and titled it Punning in Circles. I owe a lot of the ideas and all the inspiration for these posts to John Pollack’s The Pun Also Rises, and I had a lot of fun searching for the best Marx Brothers routines to use as examples.  I’m most grateful, though, for everyone who read my musings and contributed to the discussion.

I’m not sure what my next big series of posts will be about—I’ve been sketching some notes on wit and reading a fair amount of satire lately, so those are possibilities—but I’ve got some book recommendations and fun one-shots in mind to finish out the month.

Thanks again for reading!
