Thanks to all who competed in and observed the ChamPUNship! It was a great time, and we'll be sure to do it again soon! In the meantime, things are back to normal around here:

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: Punctuation and Grammar Celebs!

Celebrities and grammar go together like... celebrities and grammar. Here, check out some examples of what we're looking for:

  • Tilde Swinton
  • Colon Firth
  • Gerund Depardieu

Now, post yours in the comments and I'll pick my favorites.

Last Time's Winner (Vampire Drinks):Vladka from Alex Avery on Facebook.

Other Favorites: IV8 from reigning ChamPUN, barkwoot, and Impale Ale from Allen Hutzler on Facebook.

Now that's bizarre. I was literally thinking of just this thing the other night. And the two I came up with were Tilde Swinton (kind of a gimme) and Colon Farrell. The only other one I got was Period King, which is a bit of a stretch.

Maybe I'm missing something -- but I wouldn't consider any of those puns. You appear to love malapropisms.

A pun differs from a malapropism in that a malapropism uses an incorrect expression that alludes to another (usually correct) expression, but a pun uses a correct expression that alludes to another (sometimes correct but more often absurdly humorous) expression.

Sorry to be the wet blanket.
