New To Punday?

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.

Last Week's Punday Monday:

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

Hang on to your PUNderwear. The Winners of This Week's PUNday Monday Are...

Rookie of the Week:

@kharma.scribbles!

Pocket Choice Awards:

I am of the opinion that there are four responses to creative works one doesn’t like.
Constructive criticism. Help them get better!
Useful review. Help audience members know which of them will like and which won’t like this piece.
Outdo them. Demonstrate to yourself and others what “good” looks like.
Keep it to yourself.
There is, however, only one way to respond to creative work one DOES like.
Send them POCKET.
What pun was your favorite?

At a recent birthday party for an old friend, we smashed a pinata shaped like the Grim Reaper. When I inquired about the pinata, my friend told me her kids picked it out. She added, at my age, they see my birthday as a celebration of another year of beating death!

Nice!

That's the problem with birthdays!
Too many will kill you. :)

Lol, I hope it takes a lot of them to kill me!

Haaaaa

Not sure if this is any funny, but I just try anyway :D

The cakes and candles are long forgotten, but what will always stay present? The present!

Yasss!!!

I have a Mexican sheep named Pedro.
Every year on his birthday he gets a haircut and I say....
Fleece cumpleaños!

Snicker

When I bring birthday gifts from the future into current time and space,
I always proclaim "May I present your present present!"

Goodness. If, next time, you could just bring me a screenshot of the BTC value from a future space and time, that'd be great.
