Punny Monday #39

Welcome to Punny Monday. Every Sunday evening about midnight Hawaii time I post an original photo and ask my readers to figure out what was going on in my brain (or Amoeba’s) when he/I/we made it.

Punny Monday

What phrase 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.

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. Oh, and just because someone announces they’ve won, doesn’t mean that they have. Please keep guessing until I post the answers!

    1. OK, I might have it now. I was stuck on on phrase that didn’t make sense, but another came to mind. But I’ll keep thinking — one never knows for sure til the answer is revealed.

    1. Doug — you snooze, you lose! And just think, soon we’ll be in the same time zone and these will go up at midnight your time.

    1. Mar, every time you say this I tell you, you DO have a clue, that’s what the picture is — otherwise this game would be impossible instead of difficult!

  1. Forgot to leave a comment earlier when I guessed in the midst of breakfasts and making lunches.

    Love the puns in these comments. Susan’s cracked me up.

    And of course, I have to say The Eyes of Texas are Upon You!!

    1. Linda — for some reason your guess when to my spam folder but I fished you out. And as for those eyes of Texas — a little Visine will clear them right up.

  2. I was up late last night… at 2:58am PST (11:58pm HST) I put down the laptop for some reason I don’t now remember, planning to be right back to be first here. I ended up going to bed without returning to Punny Monday… sheeeeesh! If the answer is what I think it is… then I am one.

    Eye will see you all later, just in case. 😉

  3. I’ve sent in my guess, I am probably way off base.

    Oh Congrats on the {Iffy Win} at the blog. Provide a Big Cheat and no one used it.


    1. Bill — there was no base! Just a basket …..

      And it doesn’t matter how many cheats you provide if you don’t provide time. Have you noticed that most of us let our contests run several hours, not just minutes? And we do them at a scheduled time so people know when to go look and how much time they have to think? See, I know at least one person who wanted to play your game, but they discovered it when they didn’t have time even to cheat and when they came back you’d already posted the answers.

      Thanks for the award! A appreciated it.

      1. You are most welcome

        Oh, go back and read to the bottom of yesterday’s post with the contest, at the update at 2118 hrs MDT, I gave you 14 Hours and 39 Minutes to get your answer in. That would have been about 1718 Hrs your time. I didn’t post the answers until today.

        Just needed to make that observation. So I am sorry someone didn’t think they had time to participate in the game. So please go back and read the original post and see how much time people had and the original post time and update time.

  4. Well… I’m pretty sure about this one… but I’m soooooooooooooooo late as to make it silly. That’s okay – I’ll send it anyway!

      1. well, i had to google it to find out what it actually means. which, of course, doesn’t necessarily mean i haven’t come across the phrase before without paying attention…
        and what has serbia got to do with me (other than that we used to share a country)? there was too much bloodshed in the region (bosnia in particular, parts of croatia and ,of course, kosvo) in the recent past, though, so you may have a point after all

        1. Polona — yesterday I had a massive headache and was sick to my stomach all day. Apparently that made it impossible for me to tell Serbia from Croatia or Bosnia, or even Florida for that matter. Sorry.

  5. Congrats, Dr. John! Ya beat me by ten minutes! I kept thinking of the phrase something “in a basket” and was stuck on that before “basket case” hit me.

  6. Hi Quilly sorry I didn’t play this week, we just got back from vacation, still off loading the RV fridge……
    Looks like it was a good play this week tho!
