Friday = puns. I feel we’re really getting the hang of this. Three Pun Fridays in and it’s feeling good to have something a bit daft to look forward to at the end of the week. Not to mention satisfying my pun cravings when the rest of my writing (usually) requires me to be quite sensible.
To the puns!
Krispy Kreme says don’t panic!
I’m not even ashamed to admit I’m signed up to the Krispy Kreme emailing list. Hell, sometimes they include offers to get free doughnuts! And who in their right mind would turn that down? Besides having the ability to increase my waistline, Krispy Kreme do know how to put together a good email. So, in part I’m only signed up because of research (ahem). Although their latest email update didn’t include the offer of a free treat, it did include this excellent pun, which told me to keep calm if I couldn’t view their email properly. A nice touch.
Punny card shopping
Sometimes, to cheer myself up, I like to go stationery shopping. On occasion, that extends to shopping for cards. You know, stockpiling birthday cards and all that. I did a bit of that this week and couldn’t resist this pun-tastic little thank you card.
Really Bond puns
Before the very sad news broke that Roger Moore passed away, I got a James Bond themed pun in my inbox from Time Out. It seems apt to include it in this week’s Pun Friday.
Two puns, one tweet
One of my favourite journos to follow on Twitter is @AlixFox. Not just because she does fabulously positive body, sex and relationship work, but also because she is an effing Queen when it comes to punning. I feel this two puns, one tweet perfectly demonstrates how good she is at turning anything into a great pun.

And that concludes this week’s Pun Friday
Thanks for taking a peek at my best pun picks from this week. I’m always on the hunt for more puns. So if you see a good one, tweet me @RoseC_Leic using #PunFriday and I’ll pop it in a post.
