Week 8 Results
Week 8 challenge
— Pun League (@punleague) June 30, 2016
Every week throws up a few puns that, solid as they may be, are duplicated by many others having the same idea.
I usually discount these to avoid any Twitter-storms or civil wars amongst you Leaguers, but this week has thrown up A LOT of duplicate or near-duplicate entries. That’s fine – I don’t expect you lot to read through all of the prior entries, but this week has thrown up A LOT of duplicate or near-duplicate entries. That’s fine – I don’t expect you lot to read through all of the prior entries, but in the case of any multi-entries listed here, I’ve tried to award the first person to post it. If you think we’ve got it wrong though – just give us a shout.
On to the results, and the stalwarts came back in force this week to try to reclaim their pun thrones –
1st place for 100 points and an all-expenses paid trolley-dash round Wynsor’s World of Shoes:
Darren Williams – Stand your round
2nd place for 60 points and a pair of Kobe beef-leather boots:
Paul Sullivan – Two calfs of lager please
3rd place for 40 points and a used pair of Hi-Tec Silver Shadows
Alex Hutchinson – Two Leffe feet
20 points a piece and a pair of odour-eating insoles for the honourable mentions:
Accidental Hipster Mum – Pied a bierre
Ben Adam Sohawon – Chugg boots
Seth Goodtime – These tap shoes have a lot of hop to them
The king of hon mentions: Paul Boxshall – Do you do these in a lager size?/So began my first steps towards alcoholism
Laurie Crosswell – If the brew fits
…and an extra hon mention to Jude Dickson, who, although this was duplicated many times afterwards, was first with a beautiful pun – Sorry, I haven’t got a yard of ale – will two feet do?
