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:

@braaiboy!

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:

Presidents’ Day!

As in,
Little known fact, our 19th president, in addition to having a magnificent beard, was also a twin. He and his sister would try to baffle their mom. She’d holler, “Ruth er...Ford! Behaves!”

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

Sponsors, related content, prizes, and money

Sponsors!

@improv/ @freewritehouse

I mean, am I a sponsor of my own contest? Yes? I guess? Also, because I’m involved in @freewritehouse and they’ve/we’ve hosted Punday Monday events over on that page, I’d like to suggest that they (we) are also a sponsor! Regardless, check out the @freewritehouse community!
