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: 80s band basketball players!

We're looking for 80s music basketball player mash-ups. The players can be from any era. Check out these examples:

  • New Edishawn Kemp
  • A-ha-r'e Stoudemire
  • Durant Durant

Your turn! Post in the comment and I'll pick my favorites next week.

The best from last time (Monkey Business):

  1. Primate & T (skopi)
  2. Orang Julius (dagnabit)
  3. Chimpendales (the legendary jimkillian)

Arguably, Durant Durant's best song had to be "Hungry Like The Timberwolves."
