I think I'm punny!

In the great desert lived a band of nomads. Their leader, Benny, had
risen to his rank due to his magnificent beard. His people believed a
man's strength and courage came from his beard. Thus, the man with the
biggest beard was their chief.

After leading the band for many years, Benny decided he wanted to
shave. He asked the elders for their advice. They were shocked. They
reminded him of the ancient warning that the leader who shaved would
be turned into earthenware.

Benny scoffed at that, and cut his beard. As the final whisker was cut,
a huge dust storm came up. When it cleared, there stood a man-sized
clay vessel. The elders knew the legend must be true.

Their conclusion? "A Benny shaved is a Benny urned."
