Calling All Punsters!

Contestants Needed for the Great Durham Pun Championship!
Saturday, July 9th at 7:00 p.m.

If you feel that every morning is the dawn of a new error; if, for you, a day without puns is like a day without sunshine--there’s always gloom for improvement--this event is for you! Pairs of punsters will be given a subject and the first punster will have 10 seconds to come up with a relevant pun. Then punster number two gets 10 seconds. If they succeed it’s back to punster number one. On it goes! We’ll start the evening with about 20 contestants, and a couple of hours later the last pun person standing will be crowned The Pun Master of Durham!

Think you can stand up to the punishment? Sign up at the bookshop, call, or email to be a contestant! Or just come on by to enjoy an evening of fabulous word play and beer featured from Fullsteam brewery. (Rules will be based on The O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships, held each year in Austin, Texas. See for details).
