For the Love of Words — Part 1

Last week a friend of mine sent me a list of “groaners” and over the next few days I will share them with you.

If you love words, prepare to have that emotion put to a challenge.

  1. To write with a broken pencil is pointless.
  2. Police were summoned to a day-care center where a three-year old was resisting a rest.
  3. No matter how much you push the envelope, it’ll still be stationery.
  4. If you don’t pay your exorcist you can get repossessed.
  5. I’m reading a book about anti-gravity. I just can’t put it down.
  6. I didn’t like my beard at first. Then it grew on me.
  7. Did you hear about the crossed-eyed teacher who lost her job because she couldn’t control her pupils?

    Of course I love them. One of my favorite nonfiction books is “Anguished English” by Richard Lederer, which is full of hilarious word play and misuse. Thanks for the wonderful start to my morning, Allan, and I saw in my reader that there’s a part 2 as well. Hurrrah!

    What begins with e and ends with e but only contains one letter?

      Thanks, Jane. I hope that it helps take away the edge of the daily drama in the news cycle.
