Broken pencils are pointless.
If the tip of a pencil is broken, the pencil has no point (point-less). If the tip of a pencil is broken the pencil has no purpose, that it is pointless. This pun plays with the double meaning of pointless.
Thank you to the reader who contributed this one! Really, the last pun for now.
