Pun Watch: The News Pun Quiz Game

Do you like puns? Do you particularity enjoy punny headlines in newspapers? Would you like to hear masses of them recited in quick succession? If so, you’ll probably enjoy Pun Watch. Pun Watch is a game show in which 3 or 4 funny people try to guess the correct pun-ish headline attached to various news stories from the week. Some of the puns are brilliant, some of them awful, and some are such tenuous stretches they’d make Lilia Stepanova wince (look her up). Either way, there’s lots of ‘em. Even if you don’t like puns, give Pun Watch a go: You’d be surprised how much better puns about an accidentally eaten French camel get when you hear 40 in a row.

This week’s Punwatch, with a brief discussion of spoiler warnings for an entire school (if you haven’t seen Star Wars yet it’s your own fault.)

This episode is titled, “Hugh Laurie Autographs ‘Dinosaur Sex’ Edition Monopoly With Lewd Signature”. We get classist, but about rich people, so it’s ok.


Punsters: Alex Malone, Harry Brimage, Lisa Dib & James Ferris

This week’s Punwatch, with more Dave hosting and more tenuous Melbourne suburb puns! Sorry, everyone outside of Melbourne. There’s only 4 or 5, I swear.

This episode is titled, “Oprah Escapes Rude Robot-Armed Neighbour With Racing Catamaran”. We recorded outdoors, sorry about the clicking sound.

This week’s episode of Punwatch, with Dave in the hosting seat! C’mon lads, it’s his first time, give him a go.

This episode is titled “Cheeky Right Wing Thugs Destroy Street Art With Curling Brooms.” Before you ask, "cheeky" does indeed refers to bum cheeks.

Bum.

A brand new Punwatch, returning after a month long break, with stories featuring Taylor Swift & Jennifer Lawrence (again. Sorry, the Metro has a wheelhouse.)

This episode is titled “Josh Hutcherson Nude Skype Call Thrown Out Of Court.” Everyone hated the last story.
