Puns and art

Artist creates masterpieces using a Biro pen...


(This is meant to be the Queen by the way)

The Sun and the Daily Mirror both go with the same headline:

BICASSO

This is, apparently, the artist's nickname. Well, it is now anyway.

This art-related pun reminded me of a recent protest over pay at the National Gallery in London. As I strolled across Trafalgar Square past the various picket lines, I was delighted to read the protestors' placards:

SHOW ME THE MONET

STOP TAKING THE PICASSO

...and one other really good one that I can't remember for the life of me.

I have remembered the other placard:

'First class gallery - second class salary'.

Obviously the reason I couldn't remember it was because it's not actually a pun. But at least we can all sleep tonight now.

Hi

I have a site where I do puns of my own (and then have fun watching them appear in the newspapers days later).

Hi Joe!

Welcome to the punlimited community! It's quite small at the moment but you can proudly proclaim that you were here first!

Loving your work. My fave was 'vowel play'.

Feel free to suggest your own headlines on my postings!
