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:

@artzanolino! Welcome to the punderdome!

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?

How does the lizard keeps his tail warm on a chilly Easter morning? Bask it.

I'm So Good at Puns

I took my daughter to see the Easter Bunny once in a shopping mall. She asked him if she could put in a special request for certain type of candy in her Easter basket and he replied, "I'm ALL EARS."

She asked him if she would see him when she returned to the mall next week and he said, "No, HARE today, gone tomorrow."

The Easter Bunny ate too many jelly beans this year and got eggcited. I tried to calm him down and yoked all over me. I had to rise above it all.

Yum, I've bean known to gobble those down too!

Boom shaka laka! @freewritehouse supports Punday Monday Puns! We have more contests by us! Come on over, the house is cozy!

I stayed up all night one time as a kid just so I could ask the Bunny for the location of the candy shop where he got all those delicious goodies from. When he made his grand entrance he was surprised to still find me awake but he listened patiently to my excited request for the directions and then replied in a cryptic fashion that it was it was, "EASTER here."

Head East, young man.

I love jelly beans too, if I had been there I would have just EGGED him on. :-)

Yeeha! And glad you're playing!

Poor sick bunny. Bless you for the kindness you showed them.

Did you hear the joke about a rabbit named Babbit?

Nevermind. It is not very bunny.

  ·  5 months ago (edited)

That was VERY bunny, but it's just lore, aina?

But you are! @freewritehouse and puns, a goofy combination. JOIN US.

I signed up to Swift, Mannabase, and Robinhood using your links but it seems like Robinhood is limited to US residents. Thanks for egg-sposing me to these projects.

Posted using Partiko Android

Please report back and let us know if these programs meet your egg-spectations because I am considering signing up as well.

Ha. And woot!

Brilliant and tragic, like a good meatball sub.

What?

I don't know either, but we're goofy. Come play with us.

Did you hear about that new Easter-themed designer drug that is floating around at Coachella this year? They are calling it, eggstacy.

I have resteemed this post to my 7,000 followers. I hope they take advantage of your Coinbase link to get some free lumens. It sounds like a STELLAR deal!

Did you hear about the overbearing french catholic goth girl who married a Prince. She's is going to do a surprise visit home her father the meteorologist, this Sunday.

Yea there is going to be reign during a Noir Easter the weatherman did not predict!

Come on by and do our freewrites! We love your puns!

As you might know my cousin Richard and I grew up in a huge extended family. He had it worse then me though with 30 1st cousins and both his parents being the eldest on each side of the family. The responsibility to family meant every time there was a holiday weekend they were either hosting or traveling. Which meant he was put out and never got to rest. Add to it that he was Agnostic and he was kind of a loner so it literally meant after there was any holiday weekend he needed a vacation afterwards to unwind. But instead he had to suck it up because he was the oldest son.

So when he got older and started dating a Catholic woman from with a large family were she was the eldest . He could see the writing on the wall. He didn't want to travel very much or be inundated by a mass of family. So he hatched a scheme.the hamptons was only a short distance drom his home. So he booked a room at a bed and breakfast and would reavel the on Friday and stay for 8 days. Yea So He celebrated a short bit Easter from his home to Pass over the Holiday.

Oh no. There goes my punderstanding of the whole season. I guess these puns really pass over my head.
JK, we get it. What we don't get is why you aren't ALSO Freewriting with us ;) See you over on our channel, yeah?

As a child I used to love watching the Pokemon TV shows. But my Mom said I had to limit my TV watching. So as the holidays approached she told me I could not watch my favorite trainer for half a week before hand. Yea so I got to celebrate Ashe Wednesday before Easter.

truebigbluetag600.jpg

I'm guessing that Ashe is a character on Pokemon?

Point of order, Ash Wednesday begins Lent, 40 days before Easter.

I hope our pedantry doesn't dissuade you from joining us at Freewritehouse for more contests and fun.

Ha!
I get it, I think! Maundy Thursday is my favorite day title, though, because I have no idea what Maundy means.

Freewriter? I hardly even know her!
Which is why it's a freewrite.

I used to put on carrots and beer for the Easter Bunny as a child. I once asked my dad which type of beer the Easter Bunny likes and he responded, "He likes anything that's HOPPY."

Going to church together on Good Friday is a big tradition for my family. They would crucify me if I missed it.

I love the Easter holiday because I get to spend some time with my PEEPS.

I have a feeling that we are going to get treated to some EGGCELLENT puns this week.

Yihaaa! Thanks a milly! Fun contest to promote humor, wit, creativity and interaction 😎🖖🏽
