Punny Monday 10.11.15

Welcome to Punny Monday. This is a fun little guessing game meant to spark your imagination and tickle your funny bone. Every Monday 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. Posting time varies so every time zone occasionally gets a fair shot at being first to see the game.

Here is the photo you need to base your guess on:

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!


HINT — and boy do you guys need one!

What category of creatures use litter boxes?

      1. I have sent another GUESS – pure guess – based on your comment clues. Have a feeling it is probably just as off the mark as my first.

  1. The hint has me guessing that the head belongs to a European bunny… because he’s using the metric system.

    Or did you mean a ‘litter box’ ? LOL

    STILL no clue. Can’t wait to see what this one is!

      1. That was just me being cranky because I couldn’t get it… and geez, you even told me to try Al Hirt (whose playing I like quite a bit, btw!). Even after seeing it, it took me a minute… and then WHOA! That was a good one!

        Congrats to Al and Raven — I never would’ve gotten it. I got distracted by Spade = Spayed etc. LOL

        More! More!

    Quilly, you did really good on this one! 🙂
    I am mentally exhausted trying to figure this out. Too bad Mrs. Jim is gone (two whole weeks) or she might know. I looked at the picture last night BIG and still didn’t recognze the kitty litter. We us the ‘clumping’ kind. I didn’t recognize Pimmie either.

      1. .
        Clumping kitty litter is the kind that the urine and poop are coated (somehow) in kitty litter. When you clean out the box all you have to take out is ‘clumps.’
        Walk the isle in the pet section of your grocery store. 🙂

        I didn’t know about that kind either until our Karen’s cat, Amber, came to live with us. Her litter box came also.
        Oh yes, any of the thirteen cards in the TRUMP suit will be a trump card. Granted, in the trump suit the Ace will be high trump. This one happens to be the Ace of Spades but spades doesn’t have to be trump.

        Poker doesn’t use trump suits but a Spade, say 10, takes the same card in the other suits.. In bridge naming Spades or Hearts as trump means less trickis are needed for game. And no-trump less tricks still.

        Besides, I don’t play cards very much. I play 42 (domino game) and we only have seven trumps if we have a trump suit at all. Fives are best being trump suit because the double-five domino, high trump domino then, counts ten points.

        1. Jim — I know about clumping kitty litter, thank you. I had cats for years. I don’t know about Pimmie and Ellie. And, if you’re playing poker and two people have the same pair and matching high cards, the suits have a hierarchy. Spades are highest — also known as trump, at least in this part of the world.

  3. The Ace of Spades is the highest card in the deck — also known as a TRUMP.

    The bunny is a pet.

    The litter box was Amoeba’s bright idea. He hoped it would steer you away from “bunny” and more toward “domestic animal”. I told him he wasn’t helping.

          1. Barbara — Alastair got it without the hints. I think it has to do with how one perceives the el;ements in the photo. That’s why these are easy for some and impossible for others.

      1. The Al Hirt clue helped – I googled him and it came up with lots of pictures of him with a trumpet!!! Thanks Quilly, if if I hadn’t got it right it was a very enjoyable brain teaser!

    1. I thought it was a bit of a stretch, too. Amoeba’s bright idea was not illuminating. What does pebbles-in-a-box have to do with a trumpet?

  4. that photoshopepd rabbit head is supposed to represent a pet??? phew, i’m obviously from a different planet (actually, i feel that way quite often recently)

    1. Polona — I cut the rabbit’s head out of a magazine and tapped it to the card. I couldn’t get my printer to work yesterday or I would have used a dog’s head and made it fit. I’ve been a little behind lately and this was the best I could do when the realization hit that it was Sunday and I needed a Punny Monday. I try to keep a couple of things ahead, but life happens.

    1. Melli — since Alastair got it without the hints and Raven got it as soon as the hints went up, I’m not going to feel too guilty about this. (Just a little, but not too.)
