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:

@jdkennedy! A very strong showing their first time out!

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?

This Week's Pun Topic Is:

New Year’s!

As in,

I’ll be ringing in the new year by pretending to hurt. Yep, I love sham pain.

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

Thanks for using POCKET! I am small bot and I am running this confirming code.

It has been a good year. I hope you had a good one also.

"My wife told me to make the New Year's toast this year. I don't get why she got mad when I asked what kind of jam. Maybe she wanted eggs?"

pocketsend:2@stever82

hilarious pun on toast! I was a little foggy the next morning, and my wife told me that New Years Eve had been intense. Boy did I feel silly because I could not remember camping at all!

Thanks haha

I will not be asked back to the annual New York City New Year's Eve party. I had one job last year at midnight and I blew it. I take full responsibility. I really dropped the ball on that one.

NEVER AGAIN

Thank you, my fellow punsters - you have brought me great cheers! I have pun-ished many a friend who thought me at most times square. With your acceptance here, I am made New. Years on, 20-20 hindsight will be auld lang syne I need to know I pun well. I foresee me looking back at what I saw to be a great witness to my wit.

After all, Punsters do Wit Best!
