Brought to you by the producers of the famous O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships in Austin, TX. A wordplay game show from the people responsible for the granddaddy of all pun competitions.

This week's panelists are:

A really cool part of today's show was our very special guest, David Wyde, who puns at open mics, with friends, and to people at parties who unwitty-ingly make eye contact. He has competed at Seattle's Pundamonium and Austin's O. Henry Pun-Off.

He once rendered a bar full of comedy seekers completely silent, in a head-to-head pun-off on hospitals: "My voice keeps going up and down; I think I have an inflection."
 
David sprinkled puns throughout his talk on web cookies at the DefCon hacker conference, but they're too crumby to include here. As a software engineer and an official chess master, he tries to avoid The Mate-Tricks.

 

And don't forget to remember that the next O. Henry Pun-Off World Championship is in Austin on May 11th, 2019. We also want to give special thanks to the band Dark Meat, whose music ("When the Killers Came") we use for interstitials and for Gary's wind chimes, which provided background music.

We'll see you in a week!
