We all know COVID-19 is a Pundemic. So, the 43rd Annual O.Henry Museum Pun-Off World Championships is at PunOff2020.com, an online competition with voting open from October 17 – 24, 2020.

The Pun-Off World Championships this year consists of a virtual competition of punning, done with video submissions, and voted upon by the public online at PunOff2020.com. We call this our Punniest of Show and it works like this:

  • Except for a few invited past winners, a randomization of persons who registered by October 5th selected 32 contestants to enter a Punniest of Show video under 2 minutes in length. The deadline for their entries was midnight Central Daylight Time CDT (GMT -5) October 15th.
  • On October 17, 2020, the 32 pun-tastic entries were revealed on the website PunOff2020.com and viewers asked to choose their favorite. 
  • From October 17th until October 24th midnight CDT (GMT -5), our loyal pun-loving fans, may view the contestant videos and vote on a favorite video at PunOff2020.com.  First, second, and third place winners with the most votes will be announced the next day on PunOff2020. com
