And what prizes do they win, you ask?
Why, as usual, all the punsters got full strength upvotes on their submissions. (WORTH $0.02! So much value!)
Our category winners will each get to choose a post (of their own or someone else's) and I will give that post a fully powered upvote and a @tipu tip!
This week's pun topic is...
Why do improvisers love the beach? Because it’s so easy to say YEA SAND!
Bada-bing, you been punned! See, it’s funny because a thing that improvisers say is “Yes, and” because it helps to affirm other people’s contribution to the scene, and to add onto it, by “and-ing” it. Then, if you’re at the beach, it’s easy to celebrate your excitement about the turf, with a “YEA, SAND”, which sounds like “yes, and”
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!
Who do I nominate for @comedyopenmic’s comedy challenge? (And guess what, I’m a judge in Round 30! Please me with puns!)
Everyone participating in this week’s Punday! Go forth and comedy!
