And the Winners Are …

To decide which entries to include in the contest, I made a list of the entries with no names attached. Amoeba and I evaluated the entries to see if they were a Punny Monday style pun. ALL applicable puns were included in the voting.

Punny Monday 2010 #5

Punny Monday Meets Caption Contest.

We found the perfect photo.  I snapped the shot and then … our brains drew a total blank.  Both of us. We know there’s a pun in this photo but we just can’t find it so we are asking you to caption this picture.  Your caption MUST be a pun.

Pun, n. the humorous use of a word or phrase so as to emphasize or suggest its different meanings or applications, or the use of words that are alike or nearly alike in sound but different in meaning; a play on words.


  1. Your caption MUST be a pun.
  2. EMAIL your captions.
  3. DO NOT leave your caption puns in the comments or they will be disqualified.
  4. DO offer as many caption puns as you please.
  5. Comments will close at midnight Pacific Daylight Savings Time.  Amoeba and I will then pick our 5 favorite captions and put them up for a vote.
  6. Voting will begin Tuesday, February 16th at noon PDST and end at noon PDST Wednesday, January 17th.  The winner and every caption entered in the contest will be posted shortly there after.
  7. If your caption is not a pun, it will not be eligible for the contest, but we will still share it at the end of play.
  8. Tell your friends.
  9. Have fun!

Caption Contest

I asked you all to help me caption the photo below and I got some absolutely fantastic answers. In fact, they are so good that I put up this poll so I wouldn’t have to choose. YOU choose. Warning: you may only vote once, so decide wisely.

Voting Closes at 9:00 p.m. PDST, Sunday, February 6th, 2010.  Enjoy!

Pick your favorite caption for the photo above:

Bon appetit, dear!

What do you mean you didn’t leave it there for me to eat?

You must return here with a shrubbery or else you will never pass through this wood alive!

I don’t think what I eat or how much I eat is a suitable topic of conversation!

There she is again with that gosh-darn camera!

“Okay, okay, I admit I tried it, but I never inhaled.”

Today the greens, tomorrow the world….bwahahaha

I’ve got some salad stuck in my teeth? Where?

“Now will you put out the deer feeders?”

“What bottle brush?”

They sure don’t make dental floss like they used to!

It’s from my private stash.


I deerly love to munch!

“Look, Ma, I’m eating my greens!”

“Who, me? No, I didn’t eat the last bush.”
