“If life gives you twiddles, indulge in some riddles.” Pun-Tastic Ways for Brighter Days is a riddle-pun book by Dominique Liongson. What can architects build with a rice cooker? Low rice and high rice apartments. What is a written contest for prisoners? A con-test. Where in France do sardines go camping? In Cannes (cans). Where does the Transylvanian Count Dracula order his pencils? In Pencil-Vania of the USA (Pennsylvania). Why are carnivores religious? Because they prey before they eat (pray). Why did Helen of Troy serve heaps of mutton at noon? Because her face had lunched a thousand sheep-s (launched...ships). How do you unlock a kitchen? With a cook-key (cookie). Which magazine did Looney Tunes Elmer Fudd buy to solve his garden drama? Weeder’s Digest (Reader’s Digest).
Dominique Liongson obviously comes from a family who always tries to outdo each other telling the best jokes. Retelling jokes didn’t produce a lot of laughs, only a lot of embarrassment for the author. She was then inspired to have a crack at penning her own rib-ticklers when her younger cousin began writing jokes. Pun-Tastic Ways for Brighter Days is a collection of original riddle-pun jokes that Dominique Liongson spent 365 days crafting They are divided into seven witty categories that are titled What; Where; When; Which; Who; Why; How. You can smile, roll your eyes or laugh out loud with this amusing play on words and riddle-puns, which is very family-friendly. Some will even become favorites of kids who hear them for the first time.
