The pun, both the best and worst form of humor. "Revenge of the Pun!" is the follow up to Barry Corbett's previous book of cartoons, Embrace the Pun!, a collection of cartoons that illustrate just how punny Corbett can be. Humorous with plenty of entertainment value, "Revenge of the Pun!" is a fun and hard to put down read for the lover of pun.

" A Great Collection of Cartoon Puns - Recommended"
November 1, 2010, By C. F. Hill "CFH", Amazon Top 50
This review is from: Revenge of the Pun! (Paperback)
"Revenge of the Pun!" is a collection of single frame cartoons based on puns. To make it clear right up front, I am a serious fan of puns and often finding myself making them all of the time, even occasionally when they might not be exactly appropriate, so jumped at the offer when given a chance to review this book.
The author, Barry Corbett, is a freelance cartoonist who's work has appeared in several major magazines. This collection of some 180 cartoons is packed full of puns, some that hit me square on and really tickled my funny bone, while a few others took me a bit to "get".
This is a great quick read that lends itself to being picked up and read (or re-read) at a any place in the book. It is also appropriate for all age groups, which is a welcome change these days.
Recommended! "Revenge of the Pun!" is a sequel to Embrace the Pun, which I have not yet read.
