Homespun Humor by David Yale

Overview:

This winning combination of very funny puns and clever satire is the latest collection of wordplays from Champion punster David R. Yale, whose earlier book, Pun Enchanted Evenings, won the 2011 Global eBook Award for humor.

Yale's collection of 823 wildly original word plays includes droll daffynitions that turn your understanding of common words insight out, and playful pun stories with priceless PUNchlines.

Covering almost every subject from airplanes to zoology, Yale's puns about doctors, relationships, cats & dogs, lawyers, teenagers, food, knights, Greek gods, writers, farmers, bankers, politics -- and lots more -- guarantee a full 1,000 gigglebytes of belly laughs.

In addition to Yale's puns, and information on new scientific studies proving the mental superiority of punsters, HomesPun Humor showcases the work of 16 of the world's best punsters, including O. Henry Pun-Off, Punderdome®, and Punsr champs! 

My Review:

This is one of the most original books I have ever read!

The word plays the author has included in this book are to say the least thought provoking!  More than once I caught myself reading the words out loud as we pronounce them to make sure I was on the same thought process as the author.  It is a great way to work your mind!

I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a light read.

Here are some excerpts:

"He never got a boo-quet"

"Next thing she'll have her own aukestra"

"He put a stu dent in the car"

"He really needed a self phone"

Thank you to the author for providing us with a complimentary copy of the book for my review.  All opinions are my own and are not influenced in anyway.
