Punday Monday 74! If you can't laugh at the crypto crashes, you'll cry. So come laugh! Comedy Open Mic Round 39
Welcome to Punday Monday!
New To Punday?
Pull up a stool, order a spiked PUNch, and get to know some of the regulars. I'm your PUNtender, @improv.
How To Make a Pun
This contest is open to everyone. Here's a handy dandy guide on how to make a pun: Learn to Pun
Rules for the PUN-test:
- If you hope to win a prize, your pun must be your original work
- Puns must be relevant to the topic of the week to win a prize, but they can be very loosely related.

Which are little bitty upvotes on all your content forever. See @steembasicincome for details. I’ll send one to all of our qualified entrants this week! All of our winners get two!
Our category winners will each get to choose a post (of their own or someone else's) and I will give that post a fully powered upvote and a @tipu tip!
This Week's Pun Topic Is:
What do ogres prefer under gravy? Mashed pot o’ toes!

Who do I nominate for @comedyopenmic’s comedy challenge? I nominate the winners! This past week’s winners were:
Sponsors, related content, prizes, and money
I mean, am I a sponsor of my own contest? Yes? I guess? Also, because I’m involved in @freewritehouse and they’ve/we’ve hosted Punday Monday events over on that page, I’d like to suggest that they (we) are also a sponsor! Regardless, check out the @freewritehouse community!
We were one of Curie’s chosen communities! Prizes have doubled in season 2, thanks to @curie’s sponsorship! Curie curators do tremendous work making sure unrecognized authors of quality content get recognized and rewarded! They do great work sifting through the heaps of posts to find the undiscovered gems.

Outside referrals that benefit me.
Cryptocurrency investment wallet Join HERE and we’ll both get $10 of BTC
- Hot tip, I buy BTC on pro.coinbase.com, then send it to bittrex to trade for Steem and send steem to my wallet here. It’s the most efficient way with the fewest fees I’ve found. If you’ve found better, let me know. - I learned from someone else that buying LTC and sending it to bittrex then trading it for BTC then trading that for STEEM is the least-fees way. Can someone confirm?
