Puns are probably a very English (language) cos of the vast number of English words with multiple meanings. Also a very British (people) thing cos the British (and their descendants of convicts) have a pretty ****** up sense of humour. So in effect a pun is the use of one word as a substitute for another that sounds or is the same but has a different meaning.
Couple of examples -
What happens when you step on a grape ? It lets out a little whine.
Buddhists don't have pain killers when they go to the dentist. They want to transcend dental medication.
Why are mathematicians fat ? Too much Pi.
Don't worry if you forget how to throw a Boomerang. It'll come back to you.
