There is no way to avoid or outsmart the passing of time. It is steady and constant and one of the few things that can be counted on to never change.

Time is closely linked to clocks but also to numbers, which connects the best time puns to the best number puns, and the two exist closely together. Intermingling the different types of puns and topics can help to enforce the real life connections of numbers, time, and clocks. Seeing the connections that exist in real life can teach more than the facts that are in the puns, it can help kids to learn how to find connections in other areas of life as well. It increases the point of view to include not only one item or topic but when considering an item or topic in life in general to look at the things that are connected to it as well. Expanding the point of view leads to increase interactions and understanding of the world and how it functions, how communities interact with each other, and how to see things that are all related in a new way.

They are a way to encourage an expanded view of the world around us and the way that communities and society works with each other independently yet still in ways that are interconnected.
