Whether it’s a slight giggle or a belly laugh, there’s a little science behind laughter. Laughter is spontaneous. It’s not something you plan. It’s a normal reaction that occurs in your brain when you see or hear something funny. At the sound of humor, your brain releases endorphins that make you happy.
Everyone’s brain is different. That could be the reason that some people absolutely love puns and throw them out at every opportunity, and some people groan and merely find them amusing. Puns are short little sayings that include a silly, unexpected play on words. Whenever you want to lighten the mood, you can always have a little pun with them.

Whether it’s a formal dinner, a Sunday barbecue, or an afternoon of football on television, the sharing of food and drink puts festivity in the air. Food is delicious and colorful. It smells amazing, and it can be pretty to look at. It makes us think of home or places we’ve been. Food can be yucky and disgusting and gross, especially if you’re a kid. Perhaps the only thing better than sharing food with loved ones is getting down and corny with a few delectable food puns.
