8 of Our Favourite Tweets From UK Pun Day

Whilst love and Valentine's Day may have been on many people's lips this week, the wordsmiths amongst us were seduced by a different mistress... UK Pun Day!

The unofficial national holiday is the brainchild of Leicester Comedy Festival – a day on which lovers of wordplay are encouraged to craft and share puns on social media and appreciate the efforts of others, all culminating in the UK Pun Championships at De Montfort Hall on Monday night.

The puns were out in full force, particularly on Twitter. They varied from sigh-inducingly cheesy to painfully clever. Some fell flat (you could say they were punsuccessful), whereas others were pundamentally brilliant. But all – or at least most – drew a smile. 

Here's a selection of our favourites from #UKPunDay:

Of course, this is just a small offering of the tweets that were on display. To see more, take a look at the #UKPunDay hashtag on Twitter.

If these wordy witticisms have put you in the mood for clowning around - well... you've come to the right place!
