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 episode of Punwatch, the headline pun quiz with gratuitous amounts of Adelaide sledging!*

This week’s episode is titled “John Farnham steals petrol slightly earlier in South Australia”. There’s also a Mariah Carey pun in there, but the less said about it the better.

*Sorry about that. Your river’s very nice.

The most controversial episode of Punwatch yet! (In terms of rules violations. The puns are as tame as usual.)

This episode's title is Sepp Blatter, Greek Debt and Danny Deckchair. Also, one reference to Regurgitator. It didn't fit.

 

Punsters: James Ferris, Alex Malone, David Shaw

Host: Andrew Cherry

It's another episode of Punwatch, Australia's second-favourite wordplay game (behind Burgo's Catchphrase™).

This episode is entitled, "PE Teachers, Irish Golf and Matthew Boyd."

Plus more tattoos. Bit of an oversight there, assigning 2 tattoo stories in 2 weeks. Call your host rusty.

The return of Punwatch, as it's own podcast! Punsters Dave, Alex and Ferris get back into the swing of the game after almost 2 years out of it. Other topics include NSW road safety ads and the NT News' proclivity for a pun.
