In what can become a regular feature with your help, welcome to the first ‘pun watch’. Please feel free to put some of your favourite puns in the comments section below. Meanwhile, Chris Caton takes out the inaugural award. Not necessarily a truly great pun, but it tickled my fancy. Headlines are often a good place for puns and Chris headed today’s commentary on the US Fed’s seventeenth consecutive interest rate increase “Summer of the Seventeenth Hike”.
I also remember Chris for a joke he told at a conference I was at. Someone had stolen his wife’s credit card but he hadn’t reported it because the thief was running up much smaller bills than his wife used to. Ba-boom. My wife liked it anyway.
