    Default puns

    Could you please help me with some puns?
    There are puns I understand:
    1. My doctor put me on a seafood diet, and now I only eat when I see food
    (seafood diet/see food - words that sound alike)
    or
    2. - How do you know that robbers are really strong?
    - They hold up banks.
    (the verb "hold up" has more than one meaning)

    But there are some puns I can`t get at:
    1. - Why are chefs mean?
    - because they beat the eggs and whip the cream.
    2. - What did the ocean say to the shore?
    - Nothing; It just waved.

    Hello Katjjja

    But there are some puns I can`t get at:
    1. - Why are chefs mean?
    - because they beat the eggs and whip the cream.
    2. - What did the ocean say to the shore?
    - Nothing; It just waved.
    1. Think of 'mean' = 'nasty'; then the meanings of 'beat' and 'whip'.

    2. Think of 'wave' as in the noun! (#2 isn't a very good pun, I'm afraid.)

    Does that help?
