A pun (also known as a [[{{Literature/Discworld}} pune, or a play on words]]) is a form of word play where a word with more than one meaning is exploited to make a joke based on this {{double meaning}}. This can also take the form of substituting one word for a different, similarly sounding word. Usually done for [[PlayedForLaughs humorous]] effect.

For trope names that are puns go to JustForPun. For tropes that are pun names of other tropes, you want {{Snowclones}}. These are very PUNNY.
