Bulgakov’s novel “Master and Margarita” is discussed in the article.  For the writer the pun is not only conditioned by the comic of the word, but also is aimed to lay stress on its unexpectedness /deceived waiting/. But if there is ma­ni­fes­ta­tion of the comic in the text,it creates not only basic but also additional impression.
