What do you call a person rabid with wordplay? An energizer punny.
Mr. guy is an energizer punny. That means that he likes to say silly things by using words in funny ways. I think that this is why I have a hard time using the right words sometimes.
A pun is a joke made by a play on words. I can think of a lot better things to play with than words, but apparently Mr. Guy likes to play with words. He doesn't like Lego or Tinker Toys. He would rather build things with letters and words. Words are just too confusing for me.
Since today was Fathers Day and Mr. Guy is my dad, I let him read to me and tell me his silly puns. Just between you and me, this little blue and orange furry monster does not understand all of these jokes, but I laughed to make Mr. Guy feel good. That was my Fathers Day gift to him.
