Puns

My students are so bright that I have to wear sunglasses in class.

Do you love puns? Here’s a nice activity to introduce puns to your learners. Before the task you may wish to discuss humour and what makes us laugh. Then introduce the concept of puns with some examples. Practice time: split students into small teams, and ask them to pick the matching punchlines to the jokes (the beginning of the joke is given in bold).

Doctor, Doctor I keep thinking I’m invisible
Who said that?
Doctor, Doctor My little boy has just swallowed a roll of film! 
Hmmmm. Let’s hope nothing develops.
Doctor, Doctor When I press with my finger here… it hurts, and here… it hurts, and here… and here… What do you think is wrong with me?
You have a broken finger!
Doctor: You seem to be in excellent health. Your pulse is as regular as clockwork.
Patient: That’s because you’ve got your hand on my watch!
Doctor, Doctor I feel like a needle.
I see your point!
Doctor, Doctor I think I’m a telephone.
Well, take these pills and if they don’t work then give me a ring!
Doctor, doctor my baby’s swallowed a bullet.
Well don’t point him at anyone until I get there!
Doctor, Doctor I’m on a diet and it’s making me irritable. Yesterday I bit someone’s ear off.
Oh dear, that’s a lot of calories!
Doctor, Doctor I snore so loud I keep myself awake.
Sleep in another room then!
