"Worst Pun of All Time?"
So debates the University of Pennsylvania blog on language (though their commenters' pedantic debate is over whether it is a mondegreen not a pun), at this link, with hat tip to Minor Wisdom. It even beats something I said in the fifth grade when Mrs. White taught us things about Oktoberfest: I replied, "You can lederhosen to water but you can't make them shrink." [Alan Childress]

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference "Worst Pun of All Time?":
Once at a company meeting, an Italian colleague (he went on to become the CEO of Telecom Italia) and I bought and drank a bottle of grappa. It was not a pretty sight.
Later somebody asked me if I was still drinking the stuff, and I said that I had become persona non grappa.
Another time my daughter was looking through the refrigerator for the leftover biryani and mango chutney. I said it's a good thing you are looking in the refrigerator section of your local delhi. She then hit me in the stomach. I replied - "and that was a nice punjab."
