This week at my school there was a competition for the best linguistic joke.
I looked up some classic one-liners for inspiration: "Venison's dear, isn't it?" (Jimmy Carr); "Velcro: what a rip-off!" (Tim Vine)
In the end I came up with ten puns of my own.
I really hoped that one of the puns would earn me a trophy.
No pun in ten did.
