You guys, I have an addiction. I'm addicted to puns. I need them. I can't get enough of them. I HUNGER FOR THEM. That's why I've set up this weekly blog feature: so you guys can feed my addiction. Every week, I'll name the topic, give you some examples, and then you'll pun away in the comments, on Facebook, or on Twitter. I'll choose the best ones and post them here next week. Sound good? Good! Let's do it!

THIS WEEK'S EPISODE: Celebrities, Past & Present!

So, maybe these are more mash-ups than puns, but here's how it works. You take a celebrity. You take a historical figure. You put em together, cleverly. For example:

  • Magellan DeGeneres
  • The Mark T'waynes Brothers
  • Mary, Queen Of Scott Baio
     

Wanna do your own? Go ahead: post yours in the comments below, or on Facebook, or tweet it with the hashtag #HistoricalCelebs.

Last Week's Winner(Air Bud): okay, I try not to give this to staff, but c'mon, who's honestly beating Rosemairbud's Baby from slydon?

Other Favorites: Derriere Bud: Bow Chicka Bow Wow from wingnutzero and Scare Bud: Dog of the Dead from dlxpro.

I will drink no wine before it's time. What time is it, anyway?

Here's to the corkscrew - a useful key to unlock the storehouse of wit, the treasury of laughter, the front door of fellowship, and the gate of pleasant folly.
