Pun League Week 12 Results

Pun League

 

Well I really stuffed up there didn’t I.

Taking a 12 month sabbatical and then returning with THE HARDEST PUN LEAGUE CHALLENGE EVER.

I consider myself a pun aficionado, but I couldn’t think of anything at all to accompany this pic which looked absolutely ripe for spot of wordplay high jinks.

Good job I’ve got you lot to do my thinking for me (though if I ever start thinking along the lines of some of the more leftfield submissions we received this week, I’ll be sure to start taking the tablets again).

A long lay-off and a herculean pun challenge then, meant a reduced turnout to the halcyon days of a year ago.  We still saw some familiar faces turn up to tackle this week’s punruly beast though, and even a few newbies got in on the action too!

Without further ado:

 

1st place for 100 points and a signed Big Mac –

“Ronald claimed he knew McMuffin about a shakedown, but the cops took him downtown for a grilling” – Olive (@OlyLister) *I’m not sure if your name is Olive, but I’m on too tight a schedule to dig around for special characters!

Woah, woah, woah!  @OlyLister comes outta nowhere with a trifecta of terrific puns, all wrapped up in a toasted tortilla of a sentence.

 

2nd place for 60 points and a singed Big Mac –

Old McDonald had a firearm – Raj S (@XYZRaj)

100% pure beef in this solid pun.

 

3rd place for 40 points and a Fillet o’ Fish (it’ll be about 10 minutes for that, is that okay?) –

McFlurry of arrests – Alex Hutchinson (@PaddyK_11)

Topped with cheese as always from the prolific PaddyK_11

 

20 points and discarded gherkins to the honourable mentions:

“He’s helping us with our en-fryer-ies” – Filip (@SingleMaltSuds)

This wasn’t Ronald’s first ride in the patty wagon – Paul Boxshall (@Superbokka)

Law and order fries with that – Tim (@LinguisTim)
