The Pun Also Rises

Posted by Michael Dolan on March 20, 2013 in Uncategorized |

This is a title of a recent book addressing the humor idiom both most condemned and most practiced.

While enjoyable, as with all long essays on small topics, the importance is a bit overblown.  Writer John Pollack is to be admired for strenuous research trough the ages.  This guy told a pun, this guy and this guy.  This famous guy didn’t like puns.  This guy told a pun.

He does extract meaning worth considering especially in the chapter “Labs and Retrievers: How the Brain Fetches Meaning from Sound.”

There’s lots of interesting puns.
