Prospective Pundits To Try To PUNish Competition In Pun-Off Contest

AUSTIN, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Word butchers from every crook and nanny will compete just for the pun of it Saturday (May 10) at the 28th annual O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships in Austin, Texas.

Thirty-two participants will compete in the “Punniest of Show” and “High-Lies and Low Puns” where they will rattle off puns at a rapid pace to find out who can dole out the most punishment to their competitors.

Last year’s winner won with an off-the-cuff pun which included prescription drug-related zingers such as, “He dECKERD’S me as if he MENTADENT me and MINOXODIL me out. As I ROGAINE my consciousness, I find he’s DRUG me up the STEROIDS to a ZOLOFT in the back.”

Prospective pundits who wish to jest for the wordy contest can register at punpunpun.com
