Glad you asked! Bill Crider got the most points, but he’s already communicated that he will be unable to host the next one, so that honor goes to The Other Gary.

Here are the scores:


Correct 1 Point
Bonus 2 Points
Total
Bill Crider
10
5
20
The Other Gary (Reeves)
9
3
15
Lars

14
Kirk Miller

6

Bill explicitly made up a new pun for each one he got correct. Clever technique! I even gave him a score for half of them.

Here are the ones I liked:

  • Bill
    • Elmo gets revenge when a little furry blue forest dweller makes fun of him: Tickle a Mocking Smurf (I’m a sucker for Smurfs).
    • A thug eats too many beans and terrorizes his cell mates – Goon with the Wind (I hate fart jokes. Two points!)
    • Can a hand puppet break down walls? – Jericho: the Lizard of Oz (Bill says that this one will make no sense if you did not watch the HBO series OZ.  I did not so I’ll take his word for it).
    • After an unsuccessful career in a Broadway musical, a young man returns to college and finds fulfillment in the campus Greek culture: From Hair to Fraternity (a genuine LOL from me)
    • First there was High School Musical, then Glee. Now see the first movie about the Vienna Boy’s Choir, and their non-stop concert schedule: Treble without a Pause (Now you’re singing my tune!)
  • Gary
    • A classic adventure featuring teachers evaluating a dog with laryngitis - Trainers of the Lost Bark or The Empire Strikes Bark if set in Chicago. (I was going for “graders” rather than trainers, but of course trainers makes more sense.)
    • Having broken the window glass, Orson Welles perches in the frame to look over his empire - Sit in Zen Pane (I didn’t even think of zen, but it fits perfectly)
  • Kirk
    • After running across the country, the main character finds himself butt-naked in the woods - Forest Stump (This isn’t what I was going for but it works on a lot of levels)
  • Lars
    • In this moving biography, this movie depicts the journey of the famous Ms. Franklin as he realizes that he is transgendered - The Urethra Franklin Story
    • In this moving biography, this movie depicts the journey of the famous Mr. Franklin as she realizes that he is transgendered - Saving Privates Benjamin

He'll simply be able to do a few more things, should I land in the hospital for an extended stay like I did about a month shy of ten years ago now.

If anyone is worried on that last count, I'm working on a backup plan for someone to have a duplicate copy of the keys to the citadel. I'll report on that as soon as something happens.

For now, though, let's celebrate Gary's promotion! Congratulations, Gary!

Since this new IO thing has a learning curve, I want to be sure that your answers have been counted.

So far I have scored submissions from The-Other-Gary, Lars, Kirk, & Bill. If you have sent something and I missed it somehow (i.e., you are not one of those people), let me know. And of course you can send your first (or updated) submissions before the deadline. If you like, you can just send me a personal email to aaronpf@... without a fancy subject line. I’ll keep my eyes peeled.

Contest ends tonight. I’ll be on a plane at the time, but with a little luck, my automated system will send the answers shortly after midnight. So if you can send me your guesses before then, even if I don’t see it, I’ll report the scores and winners tomorrow.

Cheers!
Aaron

Although I’m new to this list, I’d wager this is a common puzzle format with this group. Below I have described the basic plot of a dozen famous movies and all you need to do is provide the name. In each case I PROMISE that you have either seen it or at least heard of it. It is unlikely that you will need to research the clues.

Scoring is simple: One point for each answer that matches mine, and two points for answers that are not the same, but make me laugh or are objectively better.

Actually, you have NEVER seen these movies, because the titles have been changed in a pun-tactic manner. For example:

  • In this film, Clarice Starling insists that the egomaniacal pigs get off the stage and shut up
    • Silence of the Hams 


Easy enough? Let’s begin. (We’ll start off with an easy one.)

Doug is in the Doug out for the first 1000 Rogue Riddles

portagecreek
 

I spectorlate that if any PUNY rogue producer had a walk up song it would be Doug, and it would be from the wall of sound.

Finding Doug's rogues was not easy since he uses different handles such as "Broker at Apartment Living Locators", "Douglasses", and even Doug. but I doug in and found 41 riddles that Doug had produced since he started playing in the mid 500s. That is just under 10 percent of the activity. I can dig that.

Cyn's riddles were easy to find and Doug is at the other end of the spectrum, and I suspect there are several I could jest knot find.

I have not used Doug's last name out of respect for his hidden handles ( not nearly as well hidden as Nivi Engineer though). If someone wants to out Doug the results could be spectoracaller and I bet he would not raise a spectacle.

Approximately a year + a month ago, I nearly bled to death internally in a hospital emergency room after an operation went horribly wrong. The Yahoo group almost lost its Administrangler then, and with him all of the keys to the citadel. This time around, I've planned for this eventuality. Since Groups.io allows for multiple owners of main groups, I've set up someone I trust as a debugger and who would have rapid access to my main computer in the event of my absence to be the co-owner of the PUNY group - my son, Nathan Jackson.

Nathan was just a 4-year-old when I won my first O. Henry Pun-Off World Championship back in 1991. He was finally old enough to tag along to see me win my third in 1995. He knows his way around configuring a computer as well as I do, and I trust him to figure out the ins and outs of Groups.io without issues. He will not be handling any day-to-day business: that will be reserved for Gary and myself. He is strictly in place in case of dire emergencies.

If anyone has any serious objection to this, please let me know. If not, then please extend a warm welcome to your new emergency air bag group Co-Owner!

This is going to affect everyone, so please listen up.

With the creation of the new subgroup, there's been a change to the e-mail address used for posting messages to the main group.

Don't Panic.

The old puny@groups.io e-mail address will work as an alias, but it's no longer the preferred address. The new address is main@puny.groups.io . Please add it to your contacts list and/or list of safe or approved senders, since all mail coming from Groups.io will use the main@puny.groups.io e-mail address.

Let me know if you have any questions about the change.

Adding Members to Limericks-n-Haiku #administrivia

Lee Jackson
 

You've probably received a notice by now that the Limericks-n-Haiku subgroup has been created (if not, it has, don't worry). Lars has given me a list of the members of the Yahoo equivalent who are now members of the Groups.io PUNY group. I will be adding those members to the subgroup in a few minutes.

If you find yourself added and do not wish to be, just follow the instructions that Groups.io should send along with the notification of the add. Otherwise, contact me and I'll do it manually.

Good luck, and have fun on the new subgroup! Let Limericks-n-Haiku@puny.groups.io commence!

By popular demand, your Leerless Feeder, Gary Hallock, has been promoted to the status of Moderator of this group! He'll be able to do things like approve pending messages and pending members, invite new members, and create new hashtags. In reality, his gig will be the same gig that he and I had set up back on Yahoo groups. He'll simply be able to do a few more things, should I land in the hospital for an extended stay like I did about a month shy of ten years ago now.

If anyone is worried on that last count, I'm working on a backup plan for someone to have a duplicate copy of the keys to the citadel. I'll report on that as soon as something happens.

For now, though, let's celebrate Gary's promotion! Congratulations, Gary!
