Fun Net Tick Puns

$12.95 + $3.99 shipping

As a child, perhaps you were tricked into joining The Royal Order of Siam. You were solemnly told to say “Oh wah!” Then “Tah goo!” Then “Siam!” When you said this faster, you suddenly realized what it meant. Kids like silly puns: “I scream for ice cream.” They chortle over: “It looks like oysters, but it's not.” Running words together (with surprising results) is fun. I saw this recently: “Ice bank mice elf.” What did it mean? I spank myself. Clever! It inspired this book of “phonetic puns.” Some are fairly difficult. The answers can be found at the end of the book, but try not to peek. Take the challenge! Say them aloud, quickly.

A Buddha in hell? Gossipy monks? A karmic superhero? A lady reborn as a fly with strange likings? A Tibetan lake filled with vanishing gold? A king who barks like a hound? The Buddha's Enlightening advice for cleaning sandals? Merit from a pig's muddy tail? Magically illustrated, these limericks poke fun at a superficial understanding of Buddhism while advocating basic Buddhist beliefs. WARNING: While you laugh, you might get enlightened.
