I first heard about Syman when I subscribed to a newsletter which gave you the best children's sites on the net. It was called Spike the Wonder Dog. In it, the humour section was almost always dominated by Syman and most of what he put in was titled Syman Says. Now, Syman not only still contributes to Spike the Wonder Dog but also runs a great punny list called (any guesses?) 'SYMAN SAYS'. To subscribe send a mail with your name and email to This is a collection of just some of my favorite puns collected from 'Syman Says' over 2 years.
