Have a pun-derful Dead Week!


As we near the end of the quarter with countless deadlines and projects whizzing by, it’s important to take some time to just laugh and take a breather. I think laughter keeps us sane, so here’re some humorous life lessons I’ve learned from my many years on Earth:

  1. Never ask a mathematician about infinity. Seriously, they can go on about it forever …
  2. Be yourself! Wearing masks isn’t worth it. They have no face value.
  3. Eating a clock is very time-consuming, because you have to keep going back for seconds.
  4. Stairs are suspicious. They’re always up to something …
  5. Pictures taken in a wheat field automatically become grainier.
  6. Sign language is a cool skill to have. I heard it’s pretty handy.
  7. Never take a CS major camping. They’ll just keep complaining about the bugs!
  8. Stanford students become like their bikes sometimes: Two-tired.
  9. Shakespeare uses a lot of puns in his works. They were really just plays on words.
  10. If you tell a chemistry joke, you might not get the reaction you expect.

Then again, who I am to talk about jokes? I’m just a Stanford student who wrote 10 puns for The Daily in the hopes that at least one would make you laugh. Unfortunately, no pun in 10 did.
