Punny Monday 10.11.01

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 are the photos you need to base your guess on:

What application do these photos 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!

Author’s Note:

  1. Since there are Blackberries in the photo, the word Blackberry is not a pun.
  2. Since there is a phone in the picture, the word phone is not a pun.
  3. The words Blackberry Phone [together] are a pun, but they left out an essential element of the photo.
  4. To make the winners circle the answer had to incorporate the three main elements of the photo: blackberries, the phone, and the sale tag.

However, you’re ALL winners in my book. Thanks for playing. Punny Monday wouldn’t be any fun without you!

HINT #1
Where the photo came from is extremely important.

Hint #2
You don’t have to see the whole animal,
what you do see covers the pun very well.
