Welcome to Punday Monday!

Hey Freewriters!
You may not have known, but Punday Monday has always been a @freewritehouse project. Now that we're a community, perhaps it will be more obvious! I hope you'll join in the fun! Just like with freewriting, there's no wrong way to do it. I include a guide to help you if you want some tips, but you don't need to use it. Just enjoy!

tl;dr

make a pun about the topic of the week,
the topic is Leap Year,
here's how to make a pun, if you don't know: https://steemit.com/contest/@improv/puns-and-prizes-learn-to-pun-easy-fun-anybody-can-be-a-hit-at-parties

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:

No rookies!

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.

This Week's Pun Topic Is:

Leap Day!

As in,
Because it’s extra, the 29th of February is the only day that for jump rope school, I skip.

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

I'm So Good at Puns

If you've never punned before, it might seem like magic! You can do it, too! Learn how in My Free How-To Guide on Punning!




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!

Related Content:

  • @freewritehouse offers writing and word-smithing contests every week
  • @steembasicincome has a contest round-up (that includes us) where you can find more opportunities to win SBI.

Outside referrals that benefit @improv.

Crypto.com:

An app and if you want also a prepaid credit card that uses staking of their MCO coin to unlock certain card perks. If you do want to sign up, I’d take it as a kindness if you’d use my referral code. We each get $50 worth of MCO. https://platinum.crypto.com/r/usfz8rprz6 (or the code is simply usfz8rprz6… and this is actually my wife’s code, @stinawog.)

Robinhood:

Investment platform buying/selling stocks Join HERE and we’ll both get a share of a stock (probably worth ~$4)

M1 Finance

Like Robinhood, like Swell… invest in stocks, but with the auto-fund feature, it does dollar cost averaging for you, and without Swell’s fee. My referral code is here We both get a signup bonus if you use that code.

Mannabase:

Sign up for universal basic income distribution funded by cryptocurrency Join HERE

Swift:

Yet another attempt at a UBI Join HERE

SBI

Do you like what I do, and want to support me with more than your upvote? Buy me Steem Basic Income, and we’ll both get returns forever! Just send 1 steem to @steembasicincome with @improv in the memo line! Do you want to support the steem fiction writers who are putting out books and getting the name of Steem out there in the wider world, too? Then put @steemfiction in the memo line! Don’t care about SBI yourself? Put @improv:@steemfiction in the memo line, and both those accounts will get the support! (but you won’t. But you’ll get the support of my love.)

Coinbase:

Cryptocurrency exchange Join HERE and we’ll both get $10 of BTC

  • Coinbase is adding maker fees, so there’s probably a better way out there. Do you know it?
