    I'm terrible at making up puns, but love them, so I'm always looking for new ones...
    Found these to share, thought they were clever:

    If you think guests really enjoy your home movies, you are probably projecting.

    When I first tried the new cough syrup, I really had no idea what to expectorate

    I bungled a toilet installation once. I decided to caulk it up to experience.
    ~Annan Amos

    The world champion of purposeful kibitzing is a goaled meddlist.
    ~Kap'n Klystron

    Bell, Bark and Kennel, a novel by Ivan Pavlov, chronicles the birth of the Salivation Army.

    Thanks for the laughs. I give the collection a grade of CC. Clever and creative.

    I don't know why puns are disparaged. They were good enough for Shakespeare.
    To wit, "Now is the winter of our discontent made summer by this son of York."

    Here are some I found on the net.

    One big cat to another. The pun is the lowest form of puma.

    The caterer miscounted. Couldn't fill all the mint cups.
    He was mint tally disabled.

    Eric and Jennifer were very bright, but their offspring were just average.
    They were, after all, just Jenn-Eric kids.

    An evil mind might produce one man's laughter or even man slaughter.

    (I think that last one is in the Miller Analogy Test.)

    it seems people either love 'em or hate 'em, not many in the middle ground. I used to have a friend who often punned through out a whole conversation; it did get annoying at times.

    s'more... as we sit around the campfire...

    My friend Max hates going up steep hills.
    He's always been a bit of an anti-climb Max.

    Archaeologists in Britain found part of an ancient door. It had a stone hinge on it.

    The policeman pulls over a car onto the side of the road and walks over to the driver.
    "Do you realize you've got two snakes attached to the front of your car?" he asks.
    "It's all right," replies the driver, "they're just my windscreen vipers."
