Not so Punny

I went searching for mythological puns and could not find any. So, I branched out and came up with some and modified others. Don't worry, I'm keeping my day job for the time being.

She told me she was one of the fates, but she was just spinning a yarn.

Beowulf’s favorite bedtime story was “Hansel and Grendel.”

The other gods do not like Dionysus because when he doesn’t get his way he wines.

Hades is the most popular place in Greek mythology. People are just dying to get in.

A mummy’s favorite type of music is wrap.

Hercules went to Delphi to find out his future. The first oracle came out and was mean, gloomy, and downright grumpy. He asked the priestess if he could have another oracle. The next one was very hyper and shouted while running around foretelling his death. He didn’t like that one either. The priestess said, “Well, what do you want?” Hercules replied, “I was looking for a happy medium.”

The Vikings landed during thunder and lightning and took the city by storm.

Zeus’ appearance can be very striking.

At Ragnorak, Tyr needed someone to help out because he was short-handed.

The guy that hung around Achilles insulting everyone and doing his dirty work quickly became known as Achilles’s Heel.

Perseus had a hard time keeping from becoming hiss-terical around Medusa.

When his dad stepped out of the shower, Cronus often yelled, “I see Uranus.”

O.K., that last one is bad.
