#1 — Punny Monday — 2009

What noun (thing) does this photo represent? EMAIL your answers and leave a comment designed to either help or confuse your fellow game players.

The first contestant to EMAIL me the right answer wins a featured link in my blog which will display until next Monday when we’ll play this little game again. Enjoy.

Use the EMAIL link.  Some of you are sending your guess to my old address and I don’t find them in time for the contest!

PLEASE, do not write your guess in the comments. It spoils the game for the other players. Your guesses will be shared when the game ends.

HINT: One word, three syllables — most of you looked in the pan (or perhaps at the money) and figured out the first one.  Now, what’s with the gingerbread population? (6:22 a.m. HST)

HINT: One word, three syllables — Caryl & Melli have each used one syllable of the word. (8:17 a.m. HST)

  1. When I’m up this early/late (all nigtht), then me eyes are bleary and I’m silly. Gingerly, I’m sure it has nothing to do with Gilligan’s Island, nor a root-beer float.

  2. Gel — you are quite correct. It doesn’t.

    Jane — don’t give up! Read the hint. Think some more!

    Melli — this one is HARD! Courtesy of OC, if you want to be upset at someone. 😉

  3. Muh brain must be frozen this morning, cuz nothing is coming to me. 😉 I’ll let you know if something bubbles up.

    Enjoy your warm weather…we will be back in the 70s come Thursday or so. 🙂

  4. Amber — sorry that your part of the nation is frozen. Take your brain inside and thaw it out!

    Lisa — oh dear. Too hard for you & Melli? Now what?

  5. My brain won’t wrap around this. At least this week I’m aware that there’s a guide (noun or verb) which I missed last time. I have fragmentary ideas but nothing is coming together so far. Very frustrating.

  6. Shelly — ponder what the ginger people might represent.

    Raven — write a declaration, unite your fragments together, make a proclamation and give us the answer!

  7. Can’t get this one…….thought maybe it would come to me in the light of day since 3am didn’t do it, but no….not getting it!!! Darn….I do like being the one that knows…and I so DON’T !!! xoxoxo C

  8. Terrific contest this wk, Quilly! I didn’t have time to see the hints until now, but I don’t think they would have helped my blocked neurons.

  9. To ALL — Dough Nation. The flag waving people were the nation ….

    Caryl — but I love you for playing!

    Bazza — light years.

    Jientje — but isn’t it fun?

    Lisa — it made sense because it was right!
    The peoples of Gingerbread (Dough) Nation have been plagued by floods of hot coffee lately.

    GEL — as long as you had fun — that’s what counts.

    Shelly — it took the political science people to get it.

  10. ACK! I’ve been bizzy all day and didn’t even get to come back and SEE the clues! Sheeesh! GOOD one OC! I don’t think I would have gotten it – but one never knows…

    Congrats to Capsun & Lisa~ WOOT!~ Good job!!!

  11. Melli — we’re already prepping next week’s pun for it’s photo shoot. Stand by.

    Carletta — didn’t you get an email or are you not on my list? (Well you’re on the list now and will get an email reminder next Sunday evening, or likely Monday morning for you.)

  12. Gahhh, I missed it again!! wait: I read you have a mailing list?? pls add bloggerdot at gmail dot com to it, thankssssss
