Welcome to Punday Monday!

FYI, for HF21 (22) prize rules, see below.


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:


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?

No voters! Maybe because the blockchain was down Sunday.

As in,

If you’re grilling on Labor Day, don’t forget to thank your Uonion!

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

If it comes to no votes it might not only be because Sunday steemit was down (it still does not work) bus since HF21 there are problems with notifications, posts not or very late showing up etc.

Will see if I can figure out what a pun is, if my connection let's me.

Happy day 💕

Ha. Yeah. There's a handy dandy guide to puns linked in the post that might help you figure out what a pun is!

I read it and I think you need to speak better English as I do to make one. 💕

I mean, it's a language -based joke, but I'm happy to read puns in your native language, too. Even if they don't make sense to me, I'd enjoy trying to wrap my mind around them! We have a few non-english speakers who make puns, too, and it's a delight to read those ones, too!

I will see if I can come up with something if my dog/kid gives me a word. Perhaps I should give it a try in my own language first to see if I can do it.

Thank you for your answer. I wish you a happy day. 💕

Absolutely! Just posted this week's!

One of the very first conversations I had with my hubby (thirty two years ago) was chockablock full of puns. My best friend at the time, who was witness to the awesome display of witticisms, said later, "Heaven help us all - there's a male version of you with the same sense of humor!"

Which is my long winded way of stalling whist trying to come up with a pun saying I'm wicked psyched to have stumbled across this, and will be back with an entry once the coffee kicks my brain into gear! 😊

HA! Yayay!!!! Is your hubby on here? Does he want to play, too?

Dang it - totally missed seeing your reply. Yes, hubby is here (@jamesyork) but hasn't be active in forever. I'll definitely mention this to him though! 😊

Putting up a new topic for punning momentarily! I hope you'll come pun!

Coolness! Thanks for shouting out - I just took a peek, and...

We, humans, do enjoy the Labor days, but in dog world is a Labrador day they enjoy. Hahahaha :P

My mom gave me birth, yes, crazy I know... it was "A" Labor Day.

Ok, I will stop now, don't want to Monday the 2nd over this post too much... (Monday the 2nd, Labor day, dont want to Labor over this post too much... right?? HAhahaha)
