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!

(@littlescribe, you’ll get your POCKET Choice award from @freedomshift!)

This week's pun topic is...

Glass!

As in,
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”

Perfect,

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!

Hi improv,

Thank you for your entry in to #comedyopenmic comedy contest. We have asked the judges below to review your entry and give it a funny rating. (They generally have no sense of humor, as the saying goes, those that can't do, start contests and judge).
This will determine your ultimate position when the results are tallied. (That being said, you are free to adopt any position you wish - we can recommend pantsless with beer in hand.)

Congrats to all of the winners last week! I didn't win but it looks like this week presents another WINDOW of opportunity.

Woohoo! Thank you, sir!

Let's see... for this week I think I'll go artsy and deep.

You can clearly see through the window of the soul that we all have smudges on our hearts which mirror the shards of pane we experienced on days as blue as a bottle of Windex.

Glass is a dangerous but exciting topic. I hope you all don't shard yourselves.

·

That would definitely be a pane in the ass!

·
·

I agree with your VIEWPOINT.

·

That's a SHARP observation.

·

I'd go so far to say that it is a CLEAR and present danger.

·
·

I'm loving all the puns lads.. Quite the SPECTACLE

Ok, the POCKET Friday post is up! It is CLEARLY time to head over there. If you need tokens then I will trade you 1,000 POCKET tokens (virtually a lifetime supply for POCKET Friday purposes) for 1 SBD or 1 Steem but I'm not here to sell tokens, (they are cheaper on Bitshares) I'm here to vote for another POCKET Pun Champion so I will see you over there!

Last week, I entered a window fitting competition. I absolutely SMASHED it.

The judges said I was a GLASS act.

·

Great job!, I heard you SHATTERED the previous record.

·

I also entered but at the last minute I SCRATCHED.

·
·

I ended up coming 2nd in the end. The winner took everyone to the CLEANERS.. His name was Jim and he was just so light on his feet, SLIM JIM they called him.

I was lucky as I nearly took a TUMBLER off my ladder at one stage..

·

Congratulations!

You crack me up, i'm all broken up inside and you can see right through me.

·

Oh no! Superglue and hugs.

·
·

yes, hug me until i'm opaque

·
·
·

I see what you're doing. You're so transparent.

·
·
·
·

please remain untempered with me. I glaze over when I sense accusation.

·
·
·
·
·

I'd be shattered. I shudder to think how that'd make you feel.
