12 Perfectly Punny Stories For International Joke Day!

| Right | July 1, 2021

Dear readers,

Today is International Joke Day! The oldest identified joke – an ancient Sumerian proverb featuring toilet humor – came about in 1900 BC. Shakespeare introduced the Knock-Knock joke in Macbeth in 1603. And humor has continued to expand and evolve ceaselessly, to the point where a meme featuring a YouTuber’s face edited onto a Shrek character and captioned simply, “E,” can send me into a heap of helpless giggles. (I admit, this likely says more about me than I’m ready to admit.)

Some say puns are the lowest form of humor. But we don’t care! In honor of International Joke Day, we’ve pulled twelve punny stories from our archives that will either have you groaning or laughing – we’ll take either one!
