Funny puns containing the true meaning of words

Every word has a definition, but that doesn’t mean we use them in their proper context; the true meaning of words aren’t always the same as what we say. As part of an ongoing project, Sam Omo—better known as DOWNSIGN—has illustrated the meaning of words, interpreting phrases all too literally.

“I started after I realized dictionaries weren’t actually helping me when it comes to understanding the true meaning of words. They use a bunch of words and explain the meaning of them,” says Sam.

Some of Sam’s illustrations may not actually define the true meaning of words, phrases or everyday sayings, but they’ll definitely give you a funny idea of what they mean. Check them out below:
