Japanese Puns/Wordplays

I have a friend who's studying Japanese, and recently she sent me these few puns/plays on words. I found them enjoyable, but alas, my knowledge of Japanese is but superficial, so I can't attest to their accuracy. Nonetheless, here they are:

青い鳥はいる (Aoi tori wa iru)- The bluebird is being fried/is living.
私は飢えるから赤飯を植える (Watashi wa uerukara sekihan o ueru) - I'm starving so I'll grow red rice.
家の内/中は綺麗 (Uchi no uchi wa kirei) - The inside of the house is beautiful.
鳥は私の車を打つ、だから鳥を撃 (Tori wa watashi no kuruma wo utsu, dakara tori wo utsu) - The bird hit my car, therefore I will destroy the bird.

Enjoy!
