Well, I think I've managed a pun on the names of all the most famous German battleships of WWII and a RN battleship thrown in for good measure.

I don't think I'll try it with Japanese battleships, it might prove a tad difficult and besides, I'll annoy the US Navy.

Anna needs a new 'G' string.
...C flat major."
...a coo stick.

Do I sense Don_1's longing for an acoustic guitar? Or another acoustic instrument?

Ah coo stick to your original idea.

There was a problem at the guitar factory. Someone accidentally mixed sodium hydroxide in with the varnish. They ended up with a caustic guitar.

In my capacity as an events logistics contractor, I recently covered the annual conference of the College of Optometrists. That was an eye openner.

And just last week I covered the annual bash of the College of Occupational Therapists, but I can't think of a suitable pun for that job. I need help.

At the cattle market a farmer was looking for something a little different to give him the edge over his dairy competetors.

One seller had a dozen Oxen on offer. After some negociation, the farmer declared "Per ox I'd pay 1000."

The raptor had made a good kill. Sitting on a high perch, with his claw ate the prey.

The pet shop had the names of all the animals he had for sale, Rover, Gnasher, Spot and Chalky made up the dog list, while Smokie, Tabby and Panda made up the cat a list.
