When we are done with these 'eye' puns, perhaps we should turn to puns on tea, coffee, fruit juice and water, we could do with a little aqueous humour. After all, we can't go on with 'eye' puns fo' evea. Mind you, they do make you laugh.

Does that give you a sinking feeling?

Oh! Look, I've got to the aqueous humour, a water related pun.

I only worry about the eyesolation that all this focus on the "I" will bring to Punning Thread!

What if the moderators deem us insufficiently eyessimilated or eyecculturated to be merged in to Western forum socketciety???

Is there an optician who offers non-invasive home operations and cares for the environment by using a push bike to visit his patients?

Yes, but he only has one eye himself, hence he practices under the trade name "Cycle Ops".

Is it this?

"Campobello is located in northwestern Spartanburg County. Before the Civil War the land was part of a large plantation owned by Joseph Davis. One day, as visitors were leaving on horseback, they stopped and looked back at the rolling farmland and someone in the group exclaimed, "Campa bella" meaning "beautiful field." Because it was such a fitting description, Davis adopted the Italian phrase as the name for his estate.

A room in Mr. Davis' home was designated as the area post office. The change from Campabella to Campobello probably occurred as a result of a postal clerk's poor handwriting."

"I think I need glasses Doc."

"Really? Come over to the window. Now, look up there, tell me what you see."

"The Sun."

"So, just how bloody far do you want to see?"

There is a village in Dorset where the folk all wear glasses.

The village mayor, Leonard is blind and has a guide dog. Asked about the dog's temperament, the mayor said "Len's a pet ure bound to love."

If you want to refresh your wardrobe, you can always re-colour some older faded items. Never do this in the morning, as you will need to hang them out to dry after the sun has gone down. Its always best to dilate.
