Hougang’s Neighborhood Police Center in Singapore asked the public’s help to identify a criminal, but instead, the picture shared online triggered a battle of hilarious neck puns.
According to the post, the man was wanted for Dishonest Misappropriation of Property, a form of theft. He was reported to the police at Hougang Avenue 6 on January 30.
Whether you’re joking around while shopping at the supermarket with your dad like Twitter user Kylie Moy or using groan-inducing pickup lines like YouTuber Esa Fung, a good, old-fashion corny joke sometimes helps put a smile on your face.
A video posted on YouTube on Dec. 24 shows Fung testing out some funny yet cringey puns on his friend Lena Lemon at an Asian supermarket.
While puns can be the perfect way to exploit irony, they can also prove to be extremely annoying.
