Pun Intended with Mistress of Pheremonies, Master of Ceremonies, Forest E.I. Ember

Pun Intended Punslam is a slam-style punmaking competition.

In pairs of two, Intenders approach the stage to be given a prompt with just seconds to think before collaboratively slinging puns.

Rapidly, the five audience members who have been selected to be judges, score on a scale of 1-5, frequently including hilarious pictures and quips.

Next, the Intenders come up one by one with two mins each to show off their puns, from a phrase they have been given before the show had begun.

The judges will judge, this time from 1-10, with the drawings and hilarity continuing on.

In the final round, the top four contestants go noggin’ to noggin’ then the audience chooses who is top doggin’!

Our champion receives mad respect, bragging rights, and cheers! (As well as a $40 gift card from Peddler Brewing Company for beers *or whatever they choose*).

10 Intenders

5 judges

1 Champion

What does this look like in limerick form?!

Are you a chronic literary offender?

Recovering from a wordsmithing bender?

Get off your buns

& Sharpen your puns

‘Cause here comes the fabulous Forest Ember

The task before you is clear

10 of you must volunteer

For 3 rounds of fudges

‘Front 5 esteemed judges

While the rest of us laugh, drink & cheer!

1st round, is collaborative by pluck

Since the prompt, as mentioned, is potluck

Just moments to think

It will go by in a blink

And leave all with jaws dropped and awestruck

2nd, take time to think in new ways

Atop a pre-written phrase

Some will advance

To take a big chance

With the audience's clever repartees

Thirdly the final exam

Goes mono a mono to deprogram

The pun once so maligned

Will tonight be enshrined

So vote for your most favorite slam(mer)

Against the tallest of odds

We’ve found the punniest bipods

Please give a donation

& help the elevation

Of our champion’s monetary applause!
