Pun Intended

Many, many years ago I listened to a talk from Diana Waring and she was stating the need for humor in our lives, that it was a vital piece of our education. I remembered this yesterday when my 12 year old was telling me about how much he likes Carl Azuz on CNN Student News because he always ends each broadcast with a pun. I was a bit startled because I realized that we have never even talked about puns, but he's learned about them by watching this program every day. This little bit of wittiness has added humor to my sons' life but it is also increasing his understanding of speech because sometimes we have to discuss what it actually means.
