Here’s one that I heard or read a while back.

Two men were lost in the Sahara Desert. They had gone for days without water, and were just about to give up and die when they saw a strange thing on the horizon. At first, they thought it was just a mirage. But as they got closer, they saw it was a small market set in the middle of the desert.

They staggered up to the first tent. “Water, please.” They begged.

The proprietor said he was sorry, but all he served was a dessert dish with fruit, cake and pudding.

The two men left his tent and stumbled to the next one. Again, when they asked for water, they were told that all that was available was a dessert dish with fruit, cake and pudding. This held true for every tent they went to. Finally, after searching the whole place and not finding any water, they walked off, once again, into the desert in search of water.

As they left, the first man turned and said to his companion, “That was pretty odd. All they had was that fruit, cake and pudding dish.”

To which the second man said, “Yes, it was a Triffle Bazaar.”

That's one I have to tell my dh, who thinks puns are the epitome of wit and intelligence.
