Puns make me happy.
Insanely happy even. Same goes for dad jokes. And dark humor. And those blooper reels we used to watch every night at 7 when America’s Funniest Home Videos was still a thing back in the ‘00s. But puns make me the happiest of all of those.
Witty plays on words trigger something in my brain that just makes me smile a bit wider than usual. Snicker a bit more. Giggle a bit harder. They’re sort of magical in a world that lacks the real deal. So when the topic of a Disney/Pixar Pubquiz came up in a group-app, with an additional request for team-name suggestions – I was in heaven, obviously.
Disney has a lot of punny potential, as it turns out.
I had to physically restrain myself from replying at some point by placing my phone out of reach. But I couldn’t withhold my suggestions from all of you lovely folk out there. If it were up to me we’d be:
* Team DON’T Let it go
* Team ‘You’re Welcome’ (obviously done in a The Rock voice)
* Alice’s Tea Party Squad
* Team Hei Hei
Which are all fine suggestions until my brain simmered and boiled and plop. There is was.
The Walt Quizzneys.
Done deal. Game Over.
But then we got to Starwars themed names (because hey, technically that IS Disney now). And when the Obi-Wan-Quizznobis failed to pull in votes I decided I would probably be better of playing Bingo anyway. Just so I could walk in there and introduce myself to everyone as Jar-Jar Bingo.
One thing is for sure. I’m going to be the one to roar out ‘WRONG ANSWER, CRONK!’ every time someone gets something wronk.
Ps. For those of you wondering why there’s pushpins as a featured image?
They’re called PUN-aises in Dutch. BOOM.
God, I’m slaying it.
