in #partiko4 years ago (edited)

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...

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:


As in....

My aunt came over for dinner and she brought her kid. “Have you had these before? How many potato pancakes do you want?” I asked. She answered me, “Lot, cuz!”

Bada-bing, you been punned! See it’s funny because latkes are often eaten during Hannukah (because of all the oil) and latkes is pronounced the same way “lot, cuz” is. And you could say that latkes are potato pancakes AND the amount that you’d tell your cousin you wanted would a LOT. (Not to be confused with Lot, who had a wife that turned into a pillar of salt)

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 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 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.

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)

I've been eating a lot of chocolates this hanukkah season.

I'm feeling gelty.

Did you hear about the new kosher bakers' social justice movement? It's called, "Fresh Bread Matzahs."

I need a bada bing for this one.

Posted using Partiko Android

bada bing, you've been punned because MATZAHS sounds like "matters" and several social justice movements have utilized the word "matters" in their name (i.e. Black Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, etc.) Matzah is a kosher form of unleavened bread and it makes sense that bakers would be proponents of fresh bread.

Ooohhh! I was that first clarification that mattered to me!

Do you know why Jewish students like to take their college entrance exams during the Hannukah week? It's because that week they are truly GIFTED.

My Mom was worried about my new gf cooking for me, but I told her, "of kos-her's cooking's kosher mom, don't be such a Schmuck"

May have formatted this badly lmk

Makes sense to me!
(Though I can't imagine calling the woman who raised you a schmuck! Horrors!)

I've been working out and now my girlfriend always says I'm looking more Jewish.

Confused, I asked her what she meant by that?!!!

She said it was because now I always had a "man aura"!

Another glorious victory, but this week's topic is tough! It is going to take some CHUTZPAH to win. Don't expect me to be able to HAM it up.

That's not Kosher!

My uncle made beer for my barmitzva. He's no expert. In fact, it was his first try. Still Hebrew a decent enough batch.

By the way, you should be able to get this contest listed here at @contestkings.

Doing it! Thanks!
