find the pun

irvinjirvinj PEx Rookie ⭐
I am quoting a Facebook status I just read.
In a week's time, I will be living in Para?aque for a month or so.

God knows if I can survive three rides to go to work, malevolent thieves along the way, and the hassles brought by this typhoon season.

I will miss being a Makati *****.
Pun not intended.

Supposedly there's pun in what the poster is saying, and also according to the post itself.

I didn't catch it first time. I had a discussion with him (he is my Facebook friend). He didn't say but I figured out what pun he was talking about. He was bragging the pun was too easy to miss.

Can you guys tell where the pun is from the quote and explain? And be honest if you catch the pun right away or if you got it after reading another time or more.

    the pun...........
    "God knows if I can survive three rides to go to work, malevolent thieves along the way, and the hassles brought by this typhoon season."

    obviously, paranaque can't be that bad. :lol:
    or maybe he was trying to imply that living in makati is a breeze compared to the presumably hellish new place he'll be living in.

    @gelay for your reference:

    pun (pn)
    n.
    A play on words, sometimes on different senses of the same word and sometimes on the similar sense or sound of different words.

    A few examples:

    1. The origami artist won the court case because he was good with paperwork.
    2. The circus performer pulled his trapezius muscles and now he is flying high on pain meds.
    3. When the town removed billboards, they told people that's how it was designed.
    4. Of all sports humor, football is my favorite. I get a kick out of the punts.
    5. When a woman returns new clothing, that's post traumatic dress syndrome.
  • What's the blocked word?

    How can we reply if the info is incomplete? :hmm:

    It has something to do with the three rides right? He enumerated three things.

    @irvinj: for your reference

    pun is not just playing with words. it can also be witticism, a banter, a quip, a double entendre ...whatever. :lol:

    then i suggest you go to the Realm of Thought forum, they may be able to find that elusive "pun". :lol: they love to debate on just about everything. hahah

    kidding aside, that word is reducible naman to a certain context. you have to use the word in its very broadest sense.

    words are meant to be played with anyway. *pun intended* :lol:
