Just for Pun

Weekend America just ran a story about the 29th annual O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships. I'm thinking about entering. :)
The 29th annual "O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships" is in Austin, Texas on Saturday. Barbara Bogaev and John Moe have some "verbal jousting" with two accomplished punsters who are emceeing the event - Gary Hallock and Steve Brookes.

Online resources:
* The O.Henry Pun Off in Austin, Texas, organized by Gary Hallock
* Punster and folksinger folksinger Steve Brooks

I really recommend you download hour 1 of the program and listen to the segment. It's PUNNY. They've got two punsters and they just can't stop. It's GREAT. Fastest pun in the west!

Maybe next year I'll enter. :) It's in Austin! In May! That would be fun.

Example pun: "Driving on so many turnpikes was taking its toll."
