in #contest4 years ago

Welcome to Punday Monday!


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...

@comedyopenmic nomination:

Who do I nominate for @comedyopenmic’s comedy challenge? I nominate the winners! This past week’s winners were:


Sponsors, related content, prizes, and money



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!


We were one of Curie’s chosen communities! Prizes have doubled in season 2, thanks to @curie’s sponsorship! Curie curators do tremendous work making sure unrecognized authors of quality content get recognized and rewarded! They do great work sifting through the heaps of posts to find the undiscovered gems.

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

  • Hot tip, I buy BTC on pro.coinbase.com, then send it to bittrex to trade for Steem and send steem to my wallet here. It’s the most efficient way with the fewest fees I’ve found. If you’ve found better, let me know. - I learned from someone else that buying LTC and sending it to bittrex then trading it for BTC then trading that for STEEM is the least-fees way. Can someone confirm?


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

My wife's on a diet and wanted to skip dessert at Thanksgiving dinner but I was able to convince her to FUDGE it since it was a holiday.

I thought I had a cornucopia of ideas for this one but my thoughts have become lost in the maize.

I am so glad you're here!

Thank you!

Don't ask how, but I accidentally ate my nephew's Crayolas. Now I got crayonburried deep in my colon.

Hàaaaa. Just startled my dog with that chuckle

Every year in America a special beer is made available only at Thanksgiving time. There are eight varieties of Goose Island's Bourbon County and most will sell out by close of business on this Friday. Keep you eyes open for it if you find yourself in a local liquor or upscale grocery store. Most places only sell it on Black Friday. I got lucky last year and bumped into it at a grocery store last year a couple of days before Turkey day but be forewarned it comes with a STOUT price tag.

I'm so pleased that that pun has such a long set up!

I YAM so excited for TG this year. I'm planning to CRANBERRY delicious pie into my face, as per tradition. I'm also planning on PUDDING on my best dress, even though I'll probably have to take the HAM out to fit inside the thing!

Aussies don't know much about Thanksgiving, i feel like a bit of a turkey. Oh well, I guess i'm stuffed.

Sounds like you know everything there is to know.

This Thanksgiving I tried to avoid eating any vegetables to save room for just Turkey and dessert but my wife caught on and SQUASHED that idea.

Wow, thanks for the POCKET and SBI! I have no idea how to access these, or use them, but I'm sure it's awesome, and I'll figure it out. Especially if someone explains it to me.

The post I post every Friday explains how! If you still don't know after reading that post, that will be useful to know! I think I explain it clearly, but no one's told me either way.

I read it. And I'm sure you explained it well, but I didn't see how to keep track of or use it or access it.

You just use it by writing the command in any comment on the blockchain. The confirmer bot will come by and tell you how much you have. That's all there is to it! (and that's really the only way to "use" it, which is why I use it for voting. It has no other value.)

Easy as PIE, it is a new form of digital currency here on Steemit it but many still DOUGH know all about it. Allow me to just to add to Brendan's explanation. POCKET is Steemit's first token and it was designed to last for the next thousand years. Unlike Steem and Steem Dollars, there will never be any more POCKET tokens created so it really is like digital gold here on our platform. Folks that have accumulated a lot of POCKET tokens are known as "Sea Otters" here on Steemit. You can trade the tokens outside of Steemit on Bitshares for other cryptocurrency and the value is somewhat less than Steem at the moment.
