Puns usually exploit words that either sound similar or have different possible meanings. Some are clever, some are hilarious, and some are so bad that they are actually good 😀
While puns have travelled the time, from being a rhetorical technique often employed for serious effect, today puns are mere wordplay, funny but hardly profound.
The reason we bring you this post is for some plain light-hearted fun to share and enjoy together. Groan and laugh, as here are some of the punniest puns we could find with the hospitality industry in mind. Enjoy!
