Meek's Page of Puns,
... word plays, catchy phrases, and other foolishness.
... ... (This edition is as of: 1 Novemer 2004).
I take no credit for this material. I am only the collector. Most have
come from the Usenet Newsgroup alt.humor.puns; but others have crept in
from misc.writing, alt.callahans, humor mailing lists and other contributors.
This page is now posted in five parts:
A, B, C, D and E; and its little brothers are versions 2, 3 etc. They are
approximately the same size, each, and hold about 1/5th of what the original
PUNS file held. Please load only one part today. Then, you can come back
another day for another piece. Thanks. - Chet.

World Wide Words

and distributes a free weekly mailing list. Details are at the entry page
A Word A Day
(AWAD) is a mailing list which delivers a word and its definition every
day. It also provides a robot to whom you can send words, and which returns
you the definition. The FAQ is well organized and very informative.
Lederer's Verbivore. From his entry page - "Welcome to the web site
woven for wordaholics, logolepts, and verbivores. Carnivores eat meat;
herbivores eat plants and vegetables; verbivores devour words. If you are
heels over head (as well as head over heels) in love with words, tarry
here awhile to graze or, perhaps, feast on the English language."
Reverse Dictionary is a ton of fun. You supply the definition or concept,
and it returns the word. You can use filters and wild cards to get words
of a certain length or containing certain letters: great fun for crossword
