Punny Monday 11.01.10

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 image you need to base your guess on:

What two-word “destination” 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. Sigh… I’ve got another one of those answer I love that isn’t right and I’m stuck for something that’s two words. But I’m having fun. Thanks – as always – for the challenge.

  2. .
    Sighing here as well. That Raven is soooooo smart anyway as she wins all the time. Of course she is even more clever than you are and that makes it very hard for us.
    Yours were hard, hers is very hard. 🙂 I’ll keep thinking until I go back to sleep. It is four-fifty in the morning here you know. :wallbash:

    1. I’m blushing and undeserving of the compliment. I’m nowhere near clever enough to come up with these, only clever enough to make up an occasional clever answer.

  3. Easy-peasy. Which of course means I’m wrong!

    And I like the new schedule. The old rotating one was still impossible for those of us in the central time zone who aren’t up in the wee hours of the morning or late late late night.

    1. Tilden — Jim disagrees. He wants 6 a.m., and 8 p.m. because they are best for his time zone; where apparently everybody in the world but me lives.

    1. Mama Zen — blame Amoeba. if he hadn’t insisted on the first word, we’d already have winners. Come to think of it, both words are represented, just not together.

  4. Ok, the background color has no impact I think.
    “Pair” of dice didn’t click with me earlier – I was traveling till midnight last night and my brain wasn’t yet unfoggy. I sent I guess this time and if I’m right I owe it to seeing ‘Paradise’. The first word I had. Well, I think so anyway. We’ll see.

    1. Carletta — sometimes sleep deprivation makes puzzles easier for me because I don’t have the energy to over-think them.

  5. My brain is toast, 8 hours of Orientation on the new job, just can’t think.

    OH, I have the Quilldancer Assignment #1 ready to autopost for 15 January, at 0001 hrs Eastern Standard Time.

    Are you going to create a button for it, like Susan has for Microfiction Monday and Thom n Dr John had for Portrait of Words. Just wondering.

      1. Bill — I got your guess and it is cute (and I wish I had thought of it!), but I think you forgot to check the hint that tells you what kind of answer I am looking for. Even so, I appreciate your playing. I don’t care who wins, I am always excited over who plays.

  6. Arggh. Of course it could also be argued that it is really One Paradise. (Yeah, I know the number on it is two.)

    And I protest that it is NOT two-word destination. it is a one word destination. When you added the hint about the direction, I figured that was just part of the name of the destination, as I sent in my guesses. Hmmpff.

    Um, I don’t hate missing these, do I?! LOL

    1. Linda — don’t tell anybody but I doubt I would get them if I wasn’t the one making them! AND, this one was Amoeba’s idea. I just wanted to do “paradise” but he said that was too cliche.

    2. Well, Linda, I desired two pairs of dice (total of 4). But the Q made do with the twolls available.

  7. (Smacking head.) I should have got that — my brain wasn’t working today. I had two naps today and now am wide awake at 11:24 p.m.. Congrats to Raven! Again! 🙂
