My Punny Puns of the Week, Brought to you by Donnie!               

-Yesterday a clown held the door open for me. I thought that was a very nice jester.     

-Did you hear about the new autobody shop that just opened? It comes highly wreck-a-mended!

-Why can’t you run through a campground? You can only ran, because its past tents!     

-6:30 is the best time on a clock, hands down!   

-Did you hear about the guy who got hit in the head with a can of coke? He’s super lucky it was only a soft drink!
