Something of interest to me ever since I saw some of the Disney features like Dumbo and Song of the South are visual puns. One was “Did you ever hear a diamond ring?” You may without knowing came across others. Think of words that, when taken in another context, become totally unrelated to the original, don’t have the meaning but sound the same.
When one is sad, it may be said they are melancholy; could a dog become so sad they become a “Meloncollie”?
