( it's definitely the show to watch out for. Puns apart, the annual Basel Watch show is every watch enthusiasts dream)
this is a statement in one magazine.
my qustion is what does (puns apart) means in this expression?
Jokes(puns) aside. This is a serious statement.
Puns apart means that the following statement does not involve jokes, and supposed to be a serious statement. It is a dream of every enthusiast that he or she wants to watch "the annual Basal Show."
Does it make sense to you?
yes guest it does make sense now, thanx a lot
i wonder why those great pple like you dont show their names?lol
Because leena great people dont go after for seeking attention. It is the other way around. On a serious note, it is too much to write my user name as well as "I hate spam" unless I am paid for my service I will keep my identity this way.
The pun in this case would be the double use of "watch".
P.S. I'm not after attention either: I'm here as a purely procrastinative measure.
well guest i'll call you my superguest if you like that ..
jim is that another meaning of the word PUN?
<<I'm here as a purely procrastinative measure>>
LOL, you have company! :-)
<<well guest i'll call you my superguest if you like that .. >>
leena. call me superking... as king thingy still exists in Saudi Arabia along with UK.
"... is that another meaning of the word PUN?" not really. The meaning I have in mind is a "joke or type of wordplay in which similar senses or sounds of two words or phrases, or different senses of the same word, are deliberately confused."* So what the author is saying is that he intends no pun by using the word "watch" twice with different meanings.
well superking i think you're right .. and how i'm gonna know now u r that superking again? look at that guest below. is that you or another super one?!
i want you to add ur name because once i use the word PUNS APART you will come to my mind immediately..your name will be connected to this phrase.. i will say for example that (superking) in antimoon website have helped me to know the meaning of this word. right? lol
