Bad Greek god and goddess puns

Even though I have lots of reviews that I need to write, I'm not going to. Instead, I am going to share the bad puns that my husband and I came up with on our morning commute. We like, from time to time, to take a subject, like "the elements in the periodic table," and see how far we can get with puns (what do you call an email from Nigeria offering you thousands of dollars? Silicon).

Today's subject was Greek Gods and Goddesses.

What Greek god is so hot you could fry an egg on him?


Why did the number of parking tickets spike when Persephone was carried off to the underworld?

Demeter wasn't working.

What Greek goddess are you most likely to find at the Rhode Island School of Design?

Artemis (Arty Miss).

Oh the hilarity.


  1. I don't think I could come up with puns that easily, but we do tend to break into made up songs about pretty much everything around my house. "My soda is flaaaaat and when I think of thaaaaaaat..."

  2. I think that this is such a nice post because usually when I read "morning commute" I think that the next part of the story will be about something negative or something that annoyed the reader. Instead, it is a great conversation between you and your husband as you travel to your jobs. Instead of passing the time complaining about traffic or whatever, you are enjoying each other's company. Thanks for sharing.

  3. My Percy Jackson-loving daughter would find these hilarious!

    1. I love them because of Percy Jackson

  4. I'm going to share the Persephone/Demeter pun with my 6th graders tomorrow :)

  5. Fun. That's so nice that you get to commute together.

  6. I'm glad you all like them!

    And yes, it is a nice commute--we drive the kids to school together, and then keep going for 15 more minutes of brilliant banter (Mostly...it depends on how smoothly leaving the house, which is always fraught, went....)

  7. Okay, I admit I laughed at the Demeter pun. Tell no one.

  8. Hilarity, indeed! I'd love to be a fly on the wall at your house. :-D

  9. So punny! Thanks for sharing. I can't resist a pun!

  10. What Greek god writes children's books in his spare time?

    Dr. Zeus!

  11. What's Medusa's favorite cheese? Gorgon-zola. Courtesy of my Percy-Jackson loving son.

  12. This has inspired me to post a new pun-thread on puncut:
    You guys should add yours!

  13. Too funny!

    We have regular pun-offs in our house. Word-nerd fun!

  14. A: Hey (insert name here)
    B: What?
    A: I'm AENEID you to shut up

  15. If you guys like puns so much then HERA some more
