Greetings pun-loving Fold!

If you didn’t know, I have an infatuation with a comic called Octopuns. It’s a comic about Octopi and Puns where the punchline is always a pun. I have feelings for this comic for a few reasons:

  • He’s self deprecating (man after my own heart)
  • I have a crush on puns
  • Most of the jokes he makes are stretches and don’t make sense at firsts (which makes you read it over and over again until… finally! And in that moment, you laugh from a mix of relief, pity and hilarity)

Have I convinced you to go check it out yet? If not, you should go check it out. He’s posted some fan art that I sent him that I feel fits the aforementioned sequence of punchline adventure. Which should be reason enough to click on this link.

Here are three of my favorites of his comics: Wine (my all-time favorite so far), Birthday (which took me far too long to understand) and Extinction (which I had to read the comments to figure out, but after I did… I love it). Here are two honorable mentions: Sleep Time and (if you are offended by potty language, don’t click this next one) Breakfast.

You should do everything you can to follow this comic, so here’s the Twitter for him too.
