My sense of humor is pretty eclectic. I laugh equally as hard at observational humor about society, offensive jokes, graphic sex comedy, and dumb puns. I really love puns, though. They’re so silly, and I love the groan that people produce when they hear really ridiculous wordplay. Let’s just say, if you don’t like puns you shouldn’t ask me to go with you to the zoo because about eighty percent of what I say will be pun-related.
I decided to join my two interests of street art and puns to make really silly (and simple) installations in public that would make people laugh, groan, or snap a picture to annoy their friends with. Oh yes, I had a vision.
These are all easy installations that you could create yourself! I didn’t spend more than $6 getting the supplies I needed for this stuff. Thrift store, baby! I’ve laid out the supplies I used at the bottom of the post, in case you’re curious!

Also, here’s a hilarious video about puns. Have a great weekend!
Haha. I LOVE puns, too. They’re my absolute favorite.
Right?! So good.
Argh I love this! The socks remind me of the single gloves speed dating I saw on a gate in Reykjavik!
What?! That sounds amazing. DO you have a picture?
Of course! 🙂 It’s in this post-
‘Tide’ is my favorite, probably because it reminds me of when you left the library 🙂
Ahhhhhhhhhh, hahahhahaa. I’m such a badass.
After having a rough evening, thanks for making me smile 🙂 I too love a good pun.
I’m so glad to hear that!! Sorry you had a rough evening, though. 🙁 Pun love and great big hug for you!
These are SO GREAT. The stool sample one is my fave, but only because of something I came across yesterday: https://twitter.com/IISGROWNUP/status/638404380962750464
So amazing, right? And to think, all that crap you’re flushing down the toilet could be worth $13k!
Amazing street puns, I’ve been seeing better street art puns in Morocco, they are way better than these ones. However, they are all good art.
