Obvious Pun (Mouse)

First | Previous | 2016-06-04 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Lubaf

{A computer mouse crosses the screen}
Jon: Do you not see that mouse?!
Garfield: Do you not know it's impolite to point?!

The author writes:

Usually, I consider a pun based on a word that's already a pun as worthless, (e.g., any "byte/bite" reference is pointless, as "byte" was coined as a pun on "bit" and "bite"). This is a special case, though, as the real pun here is "point", as in "pointing device", as in "another name for mouse".

...I'll see myself out now.
