2015 Punster of the Year

Who will be P.O.T.Y.?

Frightened ManEvery year, since 1988, the International Save the Pun Foundation (I.S.T.P.F.) and P.U.N.Y. (Punsters United Nearly Yearly) have bestowed upon a worthy wordsmith, the dubious honor of “Punster of the Year.” (P.O.T.Y.) In 2002 the induction ceremony was re-located from Chicago, Illinois to Austin, Texas and presented at a reception held on the eve of the Annual O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships. This year’s (May 8, 2015) festive evening will culminate in a “roast” by a park fool of sharp wits where the POTY’s peers carve up the winner. (Know more, Mr. Knife guy?) See the entire list of past POTY wieners.
