“Parking—an average sovereign”

The word “parking” doesn’t consist of a “par king,” but a joke was posted on the website Pun of the Day on December 25, 2014:

“Parking - an average sovereign.”

“What do you call the leader of the average golfers? The Par king! #rimshot” was posted on Twitter on June 21, 2012.
