The Pillsbury Doughboy

Mourning the death of the Pillsbury Doughboy (from a yeast infection and pokes in the belly), this presentation discusses the use of puns, metaphors, and polysemes. The slide show continues by discussing other popular metaphors and homonyms. The amount of examples throughout the presentation can really help your class understand the nuanced use of language in humor.
