Question about a proper English word

I am proofreading a story where the narrator is explaining about a lover, who is a doctor. 

The following sentence is what is bothering me:
"Carson, if you want to use a pun, always has the cure for what ails you."

But, pun isn't the right word to use there, is it? It's driving me nuts trying to figure out what to use there.
