Punny

 

Why can a man never starve in the Great Desert? Because he can eat the sand which is there. But what brought the sandwiches there? Why, Noah sent Ham, and his descendants mustered and bred.

~Richard Whately, Archbishop of Dublin

 

Even though it still makes me groan, I can’t help but be fascinated by a mind that can wrap itself around multiple meanings of words like this.
