Hope you don’t mind a little self-promotion at the top, here. @steemfiction has published my work, along with the work of @stinawog, @janenightshade, @felt.buzz, @jeezzle, @manoldonchev, @giantbear, and @blueeyes8960
Do you know what’s fun? Having an author page: Brendan Weinhold, Author Extraordinaire

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:

@getyourstuff! Welcome!

Pocket Choice Awards:

Whoa! Cray Cray. I had to make a spreadsheet. There was nearly a tie (there were also a lot of typos, so check your work next time, folks, but I knew what you meant and counted them. If anyone ever creates those accounts, they’ll find that they start with some #POCKET).
Zooming in at the last second, @getyourself stole the win from themself and made it so @richatvns came out on top!

Congrats, @richatvns, @paul.atreides, @getyourstuff!

  • @tipu Tip + @improv 100% upvote to the post of your choice

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:

St. Patrick’s Day!
It just passed, so...
As in,
Why were the geologists so upset to learn that the Blarney Stone was actually not a stone at all, but a plant?
They couldn’t believe they’d been fooled by a sham rock!

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!

@comedyopenmic seems to be on hiatus, so we’ll take a pause.




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! Furthermore, they/we’re using their SP to upvote your puns!

@curie!

We are 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.

Outside referrals that benefit me.

Coinbase:

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?

Robinhood:

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

Earn.com:

Small tasks for small rewards. Need a business or .edu email, Join HERE and we’ll both get $1 of BTC

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.)

Another glorious Punday Monday victory! Thank you! I have found that I am unable to make puns unless I start the day with a big bowl of cereal. So if I win again this week I will have to THANK MY LUCKY CHARMS.

I am back to try again sorry I have been away.

I took a DNA test turns out I am 23.5 Irish and British. Explains why a quarter of the time I fight with myself. Yet also why I try not to worry, and beer happy.

This is a difficult topic for me. It's probably because I'm not Irish.

I tried to change my nationality one time before and I won't try again.

That's right. I went to Helsinki and took the citizenship test. Maybe it was the language barrier, but I couldn't Finnish.

I have the coolest girlfriend. She grew up in Belfast and really knows how to live life. So we just finished celebrating St. Valentines day and she was planning ahead and gave me a gift certificate to buy her something special to wear in sexy lingerie on the next holiday.

So I went to friend Victory and Said can you keep a secret. I told her I'm on an ERRAND, GO, for a BRA, to show my support a pair of Irish eyes on St. Patricks Day.
