“Puns about monorails always make for decent one-liners”

A monorail pun is:

“Puns about monorails always make for decent one-liners.”

The joke was posted on Twitter on October 6, 2010 and probably originated on the website Pun of the Day.


Wikipedia: Monorail
A monorail is a railway in which the track consists of a single rail. The term is also used to describe the beam of the system, or the vehicles traveling on such a beam or track. The term originates from joining “mono” (one) and “rail” (rail), from 1897, possibly from German engineer Eugen Langen, who called an elevated railway system with wagons suspended the Eugen Langen One-railed Suspension Tramway (Einschieniges Hängebahnsystem Eugen Langen).
