Punny Monday #18 ~ The Memorial Day Edition

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!


Memorial Day plays a significant role in this photo.

Our pun is a whole lot cornier than your guesses!

The Americans should have no trouble with this!

  1. A whole pile of guesses came to mind as soon as I saw the photo — I think I’ll spare you that! ROFL

    I love how you captured the flame like that – very nice!

    1. Susan — you probably should have sent the pile. Just list them in a row with semi-colons between them so I don’t have to spend a week formatting when I post them.

  2. Cool shot of the flame. I sent a silly email with stupid ideas that aren’t right. Hope you are having a great holiday weekend. Thanks for Punny Mondays.

  3. I am very much an American but I am not getting what blowing out a candle has to do with Memorial Day. Nice photo of the flame, though.

    1. Barbara — oh dear. I probably should have said easier rather than easy. I hope this didn’t leave you feeling blue!

  4. .
    This was a nice one, Quilly. I only used the “old” bit because of the graying beard. Mine is almost that light and soon I will be old. No offense to the owner intended, please.

  5. i knew i had no chance of getting this as soon as i saw the photo. all the fuss about the symbols is too alien for me to grasp (with no disrespect). incidentally, our flag has the same colours but i couldn’t care less about it

  6. I am sorry I did not get to participate in this one. There is no way I would have gotten it right but I do think it was very clever of you guys.
