Death by pun

Our friend, Carlyle Wimbish, recently sent us an email of puns that someone spent a lot of time thinking up, and that person obviously had too much time on his or her hands. 

Out of all the puns, the one that caught my attention was for a proposal to tax all individuals who destroy the English language…they call it a “syn tax.”

So with no further adieu, enjoy the following well thought out puns:
