FEATURED COMIC --> Embrace the Pun.

Genejoke at 12:00AM, Nov. 9, 2016

Embrace the Pun! by Barry Corbett.




The title says it all, Embrace the Pun is a gag comic made up entirely of terrible puns. I say that with love, because personally I love bad puns.

The format is simple and effective, a single image and a pun, no more, no ...

Banes at 12:00AM, Sept. 15, 2016

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Sept. 9, 2016

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Aug. 15, 2016


Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince (2015)
