A picture tells a thousand puns

As a lover of puns (an unfortunate quality of mine for my pun-hating friends), I love this entry at Lenscratch, which compiled this ode to puns, intentional and otherwise, snapped by various photographers with a sense of humor. I especially like the 50 Cent image (above), taken “on the mean streets of Portland by Neil DaCosta. The painting elevates it to the realm of “art,” but it does remind me a lot of the “sleeveface” phenomenon a while ago, where people photographed themselves holding record cover sleeves in a similar manner.

Speaking of puns, one of my favorite moments of social networking (this will be a category at the next award show) was this pun-tacular thread of comments left by yours truly and others on an article shared on Google Reader last December.
