These Wednesday words are pun-derful

When I changed the bulletin board beside the elevators on my floor in the wee hours this morning, I posted these "tearable puns."  By the end of this first day, people have torn off four of them:
(1)  A bicycle can't stand on its own because it is two-tired.
(2)  Time flies like an arrow.  Fruit flies like a banana.
(3)  When a clock is hungry, it goes back four seconds.
(4)  The short fortuneteller who escaped from prison was a small medium at large.
"Tearable puns" is itself a terrible pun.  Click to enlarge the illustration so you can read the fine print.  Do any of these tickle your funny bone?  I kind of like "poultry in motion."

At 7:45 this morning, standing at the elevator with my neighbor Tiny, I learned that SHE took the first "tearable pun" above. In the early afternoon, I went to lunch in the Café and spotted the other three "tearable puns" lined up on the counter to share with passers-by. Marianne, who was volunteering on the link desk, hadn't noticed the puns. I handed the three slips of paper to her, and she loved that third one above. I told her to keep it, and she said it would make a good bookmark in the book she was reading. I wonder if the other two are still on that counter. My latest addition to the bulletin board seems to have been a hit.

Yesterday, another tearable pun was torn off, the fifth from the left. Gail took those three that ended up at the link desk, but another resident on my floor told me she thinks the puns are silly. Some people seem to like them.
