A weighty “you-were-there” guide to this year’s O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships by Zachary Pincus-Roth in a LA Weekly feature story “At the World Pun Championships, Victory Is Easier Said Than Punned“ is a thoughtful character profile of the 2014 Punslinger and Punniest of Show winners including local LA punmeister Ben Ziek, Washington D.C.’s Alexandra Petri, and Austinites Matt Pollock, Andy Balinsky, and Dav Wallace. Pincus-Roth paints a detailed picture of the entire two-day event, including the Friday night dinner wordplay honoring the Punster of the Year (P.O.T.Y.) Unlike most reporting about the Pun-Off, Pincus-Roth actually shares numerous puns made by the competitors so you can groan along! We rate this article a 10!
