Some PUN -ishment! Bad jokes to get you through Hump Day!

Surprisingly, these are not my jokes.  They are so much like my jokes, some will find that hard to believe.  However, in the ongoing debate of nature versus nurture, these are actually puns that my son just sent me.  He knows my warped sense of humor and given my anxiety over my upcoming surgery, sent this to cheer me and the rest of our family up.  The apple does not fall  far from the tree so to speak.  So, enjoy the moans and groans that only puns can provide properly:
