I think it’s time for some levity around here. While that Clinton ad is certainly groan-inducing, let’s up the ante here at the ToddBlog. Bring me the funniest – i.e. groan-tasticist – puns you can find. Winner receives a special prize.

To get us started:

Think you can beat that? I hope so.
Happy Friday.

P.S. I apologize to all my non-Spring-Sing-Host readers – groan-inducing may come a little less naturally to you.

    And finally, drumroll please…

    Once this guy sent ten puns to all of his friends in hopes that at least one of them would make his friends laugh. Unfortuneately, no pun in ten did.
