Screen shot 2013-04-15 at 12.59.06 AMPunsters United Nearly Yearly (P.U.N.Y.) is a small, unofficial group of wordplay enthusiasts, formed in 1990 to assist the O. Henry Museum in Austin, Texas. Specifically, PUNY helps emcee and judge the museum’s largest fundraiser every May, the Annual O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships.

The Annual O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships fundraising helps support museum programs and the Brush Square Museums Foundation. The event provides free entertainment for over 1,000 spectators every year, collecting funds through auctions, book sales, and audience donations during the event. The Annual O. Henry Pun-Off is also an event that allows the most twisted minds in the country, P.U.N.Y. members and otherwise, a chance to show just how far the English language can be bent without breaking.

Discussions include P.U.N.Y. event status announcements, news about other pun-related events, pun challenges, riddles, and discussions, and ideas about future wordplay events and competitions. Basically, anything pun-related or O. Henry related is fair game, moderated by Gary Hallock as its Leerless Feeder.

PUNY Yahoo! email group is a great place to practice your puns for the Pun-Off, so please subscribe.
