Pull up a stool, order a spiked PUNch, and get to know some of the regulars. I'm your PUNtender, @improv.

How To Make a Pun

This contest is open to everyone. Here's a handy dandy guide on how to make a pun: Learn to Pun

Rules for the PUN-test:

  • If you hope to win a prize, your pun must be your original work
  • Puns must be relevant to the topic of the week to win a prize, but they can be very loosely related.

Here is last week's Punday Monday, and all the puns that were eligible to win this week are in the comments!

Rookie of the Week:


Pocket Choice Awards:

I am of the opinion that there are four responses to creative works one doesn’t like.

  1. Constructive criticism. Help them get better!
  2. Useful review. Help audience members know which of them will like and which won’t like this piece.
  3. Outdo them. Demonstrate to yourself and others what “good” looks like.
  4. Keep it to yourself.

There is, however, only one way to respond to creative work one DOES like.

  1. Send them POCKET.

What pun was your favorite?

No voters! Where’s @paul.atreides? @mensa-sig? @richatvns and his posse?

Why do the other vegetables salute the corn? Because no other vegetable outranks a kernel.

Awesome joke. Nonetheless, I think you can do better.

I salute the punster that can make a joke with that word.

Think of military puns. There's a bunch of words ripe for punning in those.

My Italian friend owns a music shop but needed help identifying a certain stringed instrument. I told him...
It's a lute!

Man, this is taxing my brain! Still working on it though. 😊

Ha! You got this!
