Attempting One-liners

There's no I in team, but if you're clever you can a find a "me"
I ran a home-run, and the whole crowd followed my lead... (my parents thought it cute naming me Forrest)
He was counting his doll collection, using the letters of the alphabet, and couldn't make it pass the Y chromosome
I received a two page text and immediately knew its gender... (the majority of it was exclamation points)
That girl's my soul mate... (which means she finds my missing soles in the most peculiar places)
I'd get into the meat of the issue, except I'm a vegetarian
He stepped on a goathead then passed out... (that goat was MAD!)
I saw a shooting star, then ran the other way... (just barely missing Chuck Norris's bullets)
He was just bright-eyed and bushy tailed... had nothing to do with last night's party
It's true, two wrongs don't make a right, but three lefts do



Inspired by Tim Ryerson's poem, Somewhat Twisted Thoughts of the Day

    Perhaps puns are a low sense of humor, but I still get a kick out of exercising those brain muscles in anyway I can. Glad you enjoyed them!

    Appreciate your comments, always, Laura! I'm happy you got a kick out of the Chuck Norris one for I thought that was one of the more clever ones... haha...
