A little diversion involving words

Got that frivolous Friday feeling? I have exams to grade so, naturally, I was looking for a diversion this morning and thought I’d share three of my attempts.

Diversion 1: Identify the pun performed by today’s photo from doozzle.

Diversion 2: Check out the pronunciation humor in this Berlitz ad.

Diversion 3: Watch the short video on the etymology of the word, clue. And head over to Mysteries of Vernacular to check out etymologies for assassin or pants. (Thanks to Stan Carey for identifying these for me.)

I was entertained. Hope you are, too. Now I have to stop being diverted and get to those exams. Ugh!
