CHAT-Weekly Comp 27 Sep/3 Oct 2010-VISUAL PUN
« on: September 26, 2010, 02:07:22 PM »
This is the CHAT thread for VISUAL PUN.

Entries HERE

Your mission this week is to create a photographic pun, in the literally obvious style of Pan's People; something along these lines (apologies these are both from me) - Apple Pi, Bermuda Triangle. Jinky has done some particularly groan inducing images in the past - Give Peas a Chance sticks in my mind for some reason - it's easy to do and a lot of fun to think one up.

Pictures to be taken between 00.01am Monday 27th September to Sunday 3rd October.
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 4th October.
Poll will be up Tuesday 5th October  until 23.59pm Friday 8th October.
Winner to be announced Saturday 9th October, (winner should post the new topic no later than 23.59 Sunday 10th October).

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to
post a topic on the Sunday following your declared win
create an entries thread
create a chat thread
create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday
(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc)

In case of a tie, the first entry posted wins.

photos to be taken during the specified dates, ie sunday xx to Monday xx

pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59 Monday night

Poll to be created Tuesday to run till Friday, winner declared Saturday

If I`m better I`m away for a long weekend so got up to try these and fill the boredom.
Was going to do this one - any guesses  ;)


but instead went for this one.

I`d bet you I could reach it but (altogether) ...

I reckon the first one is 'the grass is always greener on the other side', but I'm not sure (all right, haven't got a clue) what the entry is.

Managed to get something, although my first idea went by the wayside.

That wasn't my planned title Bob, but I really like your thinking.

You're thinking too hard Bob.

Clue coming up - complete this phrase or saying 'I've got a head like a  . . . . .  '

I would imagine so Bob. But I can't recall because I've got a head like a sieve.
