Pun Through Image

Wikipedia entry on Pun, defines Pun as, “A pun (or paronomasia) is a phrase that deliberately exploits confusion between similar-sounding words for humorous or rhetorical effect.”

Won’t the Image on left above, be also called a Pun? The only exception here is that instead of exploiting confusion between similar-sounding words, it exploits the confusion between similar-looking images.

I came across this graffiti on a wall on Maistrova Ulica, in Ljulbjana, Capital of Slovenia. A very intelligent summation of the emotions of people in a country that is still new and overawed with an open economy, after long and hard years of communist ruling. And what would be a better symbol of Capitalism than Coca cola?

Compare it with the original “Enjoy Coca cola” symbol pasted along with it!
