pun: over easy

Here's one of two photos I took at Whole Foods with clever PUNS (play on words). On this poster, "over easy" has a couple of meanings. 

1. Eggs cooked "over easy" is a fried egg flipped over gently and served with the YOLK (the yellow part) still RUNNY (liquid). 

2. "A price that goes over easy" is another way of saying, "A price that is not a problem."

"Cage-free eggs. With a price that goes over easy."

When we unintentionally say a pun, we usually say, "No pun intended." However, since this is a promotional poster, I think the pun is totally intended.

Any questions or comments? Do it below, on Facebook, or send me an email at joeyu@thesmallguidesite.com. Also, you can follow me on Twitter @joeyu2nd for more quick, small English lessons, and be a fan of the small guide site on Facebook.

Take care, and I hope to hear from you!
