Punny Monday 2011.07.04

Yes, I know it’s a holiday but we’re playing just the same.  However, this is NOT a holiday theme.  The person in the photo is Angela, our house guest.  Yes, she is standing on top of the kitchen cupboards.  That’s the only way she could reach the 20 ft. ceiling to change the light bulb.  No, we did not make her do this.  She volunteered — as long as I would take her photo and put it in Punny Monday.  Here it is.  Start guessing!

What compound plural 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!

Punny Monday 11.06.27

Welcome to Punny Monday. This is a fun little guessing game meant to spark your imagination and tickle your punny bone. Every Monday around midnight Pacific 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.

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

CLUE #1

As you know a Proper Noun is the formal name of a person, place or thing. In this case, we are looking for a PLACE. (Further clues –and at least one big red herring– can be found in the comments).

The Muffed Target ~ #27

The Muffed Photo Meme is sponsored by Thom “Bite Me” Robinson, and can be found every Tuesday on his blog, Thom’s Place 4 Well, Whatever. Believe me, this meme really fits in his “well whatever” category:

Each Tuesday post a completely crazy, messed up photo — one you would normally delete. The subject matter isn’t important — did you take a picture of your thumb? The lens cap? The wrong half of great Aunt Betty? (Really, she usually has a head …) Or perhaps you’ve got a shot of your own nose hairs taken while you were trying to determine why the flash wasn’t working. Whatever your photo goof is, we want to see it!

So, let’s all expose our photo flubs. You show me yours and I’ll show you mine!

His name is Jason, but he’s not a slasher-movie monster. This is an otherwise perfect photo-portrait ruined by the shimmering heatwaves rising from the campfire. In it’s own way it is cool, but it isn’t what I saw through my viewfinder when I clicked the shutter. The camera picks up things our own eyes can’t see.

A Picturesque Camping Trip

Once again we tripped off to Vancouver, B.C. with a group of students from UW’s Friday Harbor Labs.  This time it was the ZooBot class (a Zoological and Botanical survey of coastal sea life).

This is Megan.

Megan teaches the Zoo part of ZooBots.  I took this shot right after the class returned from the beach and caught Megan in the act of exchanging boots for shoes. Megan is just as fun and energetic as this photo implies.

Megan’s friend brought us a bucket full of fresh crab.  I am sure that somewhere in all the crunching and slurping we remembered to say thank you.

And of course I found time to take a few pics:
