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, featuring guest punster Peter Jones and a lack of quality smack talk.

This episode is titled, “ScarJo & Jolie’s Competitive Shoe Drive Unaffected By Crescent Moon.” Incidentally, the new star sign is Ophiuchus; if you were born between November 29 and December 17, you’re an Ophiciuchian. He’s a doctor, or something.

This week’s Punwatch, featuring guest punster Timothy Clark and more singing than usual.

This episode is titled, “Eminem sells off parts of Puffing Billy in bid to avoid novelty jail term.” The other story was a bit too depressing to work into the title :(

This week’s Punwatch, in which one punster loses really, really slowly. It’s like watching someone fall over in slow motion.

This episode is titled, “Magpies lose match against 10,000 year old bear at cancelled Phil Collins show.”. That guy from The Block is in there too, but his story sucked so it doesn’t get into the title. That’ll show him.
