Punny Monday # 15

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 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. Sorry this is late, folks. There appear to be a few bugs in WordPress’s system …

    1. Amoeba — and I was certainly feeling a bit …. oh, I can’t say that. It’s the answer to Punny Monday.

      Sorry everybody. I had the post set to auto-publish at 12:01 a.m., but apparently it had other ideas. In fact, it refused to publish this morning until I made it a brand new web page and deleted the first one. Some kind of glitch.

  2. Well, well , well! it finally got published, now you have me thinking…sent you a (wrong) guess because: no guessing, no fun, right?

    1. Thom — Totally Clueless is your common state, why should that make a difference to whether or not you make a wild & weird guess?

  3. I was actually excited it wasn’t up this morning, thinking, Ah, now I have chance at it! I’ve been checking off and on all morning, then it comes up when I’m away from the computer for 45 minutes. Oh well — such is life. I’ve sent in one guess but I’m still pondering….

      1. I beg to differ with you. I had not one problem with WordPress yesterday and haven’t had for quite some time.

    1. Polona — plus the phrase I’m looking for is American slang, which leaves you far too many languages to sort through to get the right answer.

    1. Betty — I received your guess. It is indeed wrong, but not by much. I don’t know why the internet was being so critical.

  4. Congrats to Alastair. I never would have guessed that one, though I guessed all around it! There is a great variety of answers today!

  5. Ahhhh well… I missed it! I’m not sure if I would have gotten that one or not…. it wasn’t the FIRST thought I had, for sure!

    1. Melli — generally the first thing that comes to my mind when I see such things is, how much did their parents pay for those shoes?

  6. footloose and fancy free would have been my guess had I have seen it so I would have been wrong once again which is nothing new. am still at Kellie’s, books at my house, not seen by Jackie or I…. I know, not good. But I love you. XOOXOX C

    1. Caryl — I don’t know about “fancy” since I did see them, but one at least hopes the feet were loose and free when the shoes ended up on that wire!

  7. I was away most of the day, working on a devotion for Bible study tomorrow…so I missed it.

    I do wonder, when I see these things, what on earth was going on to get those shoes hung up there.

    Even worse is when it’s just one. You just wonder where you would donate the remainder?
