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:

None

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.

Ideas, you three, for increasing participation?

This Week's Pun Topic Is:

Celebration

As in,

I need some pancake recipes delivered in that quick recipe way they do on youtube for my party… Oh, no, it’s not a pancake party. I just need some decorations, and the guy at the party store recommended crepe streamers.

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

I'm So Good at Puns

That pun was so good I almost creped myself. I was so tipsy at the last party I went to, I scraped my leg. I don't want to talk about that shindig.

Someone sent you some POCKET tokens. POCKET is an experimental sub-token system which operates on the Steem blockchain. It's like having a custom token without SMT. You can also send some to someone else by just commenting on a post with the following command: pocketsend:number_of_token@recipient_name,memo for example to send 10 tokens to @pocketjs, make a comment starting with: pocketsend:10@pocketjs,This is a gift

I am running Pocket-JS confirmer code.

I am throwing a party! And you are all invited. What's the occasion, you ask? Well, it is the one year anniversary of my owl farm and, coincidentally, a birthday for the lady who looks after my kids. It'll be a real hootenanny.

pocketsend:3@acolucky

This is where you're voting? Not on my handy dandy pocket friday post? Oh, well, OK.

I'm only good at pocketpool, not the best at pocketsend
