Is there a name for I.P. Freely type puns?

As a kid in the 70’s I remember ordering Dynomite magazine from school (for kids too old for WOW and too young for Bananas), and they someitmes had a bunch of these, some clever, some not, some downright odd (Esther A. Dotorindahouse)- do these have a name? And are there compiliations of them online anywhere?

“Danger on the Cliffs” by Eileen Dover

“Spontaneous Combustion” by Lynn C. Doyle

The Death of Rasputin by Felix Kutchakokoff

Wikipedia refers to them as Gag names.

I don’t know if there’s a name for them, but it always amazes me how many of these people have gone to work for Car Talk.

“Hawaiian Rape” by Kamana Wanalaiu

“10 Miles To The Outhouse” by Willie Makit (Illustrated by Betty Dont)

Nitpick: Dynamite. I used to love that magazine.

That’s more “wanna lie you.” Wanaleiu is closer.

Thanks- I must have had Good Times on the brain. And thanks for the Wikipedia link! I used to have the first issue- I wonder what that would be worth now in mint condition? :slight_smile:

Anal Sex for Dummies by Ben Dover and C. Howett Fields.

Annie you knock me out. :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

And the unauthorized sequel, “Danger on the Chinese Cliffs” by her sister Irene.

The one that got my mouth washed out with soap (and to continue the China theme): “Overpopulation in China” by Wi Fukum Yung.

A History of Homosexuality in Ireland, by Patrick Fitzgerald and Gerald Fitzpatrick.

I could have sworn that Phil McAvity was the second author.

That reminds me of one of my favorite jokes.

An Irishman and a Scotsman are walking in a field. They see a sheep with its head stuck in a fence. The Scotsman walks over and has his way with it.

He returns to the Irishman. “Would ye like summa that?” he asks.

“Don’t know,” says the Irishman. “Would I hev ta put me head through the fence?”


Notably also the authors of this question that Cecil answered:

I have an old National Lampoon magazine at home, it’s from the 70s too, with entire class lists consisting of these types of names. It was a school Yearbook parody kind of thing. I found it a few years back after moving some stuff in the basement. Those guys were fun-nnny back then.

I New York City I saw a car with a very professsionally done logo on the door that said “Dewey, Cheetham & Howe - Attorneys at Law”

I think that was originally used by the Three Stooges.
