Punny Monday #14

Welcome to Punny Monday. Every Sunday evening about midnight Pacific Daylight Savings 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.

What noun 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. Well my guess is in but I’m sure it’s all wrong. I see you are back to your abstract way of thinking big time. Must be that cold air in the Pacific Northwest LOL

    1. Thom — I am not the one who is abstract. There isn’t a pocket in this photo anywhere. If you’d just think for a minute, Maynard, I’m sure you’d get it.

        1. Wait a minute! Why don’t we want Thom to feel bad? Every week he insults me and nobody cares about that. I insult him back and everybody is worried about little Tommy’s feelings! Sheesh!

  2. Your dinner doesn’t look very nutritious to me. Maybe I will e-mail you a recipe instead of a (wrong) guess 😉

  3. already 3 here so I am guessing it wont be me that wins, but the dish looks delish!!

      1. Ah, don’t have a therapist anyhow — apart from this bottle of Kahlua.

        You’re off the hook anyway now that I’m seething with envy for not thinking of “potboiler”. Dang!

  4. Sent in a first guess, though not early enough to win (sniff, sniff).

    I agree with Susan — that photo is a little disconcerting to book lovers!

    1. Bill — You’re absolutely correct, your guess is wrong. I am very interested in knowing how you came up with that answer though. You must have been thinking wood stove. My house is just a little more modern than that. My stove is a glass cooktop.

      1. It was 0437 hrs when I made my Guess, The Coffee didn’t kick in yet and I was getting ready for work. I guess it had to do with Lighter in the Title. Well I am in good Company, Thom’s guess was as Strange as Mine. :}

  5. I’m clueless, despite the clues given in comments above, so I’m sure I’ll kick myself later.
    However, I’m thoroughly enjoying Susan’s comment above!

  6. I’m late AND baffled. Sigh. We’ve had a 45 degree change in temperature here from chilly to hot and humid. Ugh. I’m sleep deprived and cranky. Hopefully my brain will kick in so I can at least make a guess.

    1. Raven — why don’t you grab a recipe and cook yourself something tasty to cheer yourself up? We are windy and cold here so I am thinking Tollhouse Cookies. Since yyou are hot and muggy maybe some nice gazpacho soup is in order.

  7. .
    The “noun” bit has me baffled for getting it boilded down to OnE word, a noun. Oh well. 🙂

    I just read the turtle in the car bit. Just to let you know, here in the Houston area we have a very few rattlesnakes. Our part of the great ex-country of Texas is not know for rattle snakes. WE HAVE OIL. Could soon be unwanted oil, our neighbor state has it right now.

    1. Jim — one compound word. You should have asked Mrs. Jim for help. I bet she’d have gotten it. And tell my friend Dave there are no rattlesnakes in Houston. One bit him in the ankle when he stepped out his front door to get the paper. Lucky for Dave, it bit him in his left ankle, which just happens to be plastic since he has a prosthesis.

    1. Barbara — yes, but does it strike you as odd that Alastair, the vicar, and Jim, the Sunday School teacher, were the two thinking likes crooks? I wonder why that is?

  8. Did I REALLY not comment here this morning??? WOW! I sure thought I did! Welllllllllll…. Congratulations Polona!!! Well done!

    1. Polona — the one I had planned was much harder — so hard in fact that we can’t find the computer file we hid it in!
