This week’s challenge was to find a punning headline for the seasonal tale in which the organisers of a village Christmas party in the Yorkshire Dales had to carry out a risk assessment on the mince pies, or face the cancellation of the party.
It was a festive bonanza. Clearly Christmas is an inspirational time of year for you all when it comes to punning.
As usual there were some firm favourites, Who rates all the pies? being one. It was sent in by Kieran Boyle, Catriona Smith and John Coulthard. Variations include Who hates all the pies? from Martin. There was also Health & Pastry from Helene Parry and Health and Pastry Gone Mad from Gareth.
Getting festive were Mike Monk with Elf & Safety, Mike with Council impose Santa clauses (for Elf and Safety), Nigel Macarthur with Pass Me The Yule Book and Kip with Yule be sorry!
Taking inspiration from the pie itself were Steven Gray with Pied Up in Red Tape!, Dan with The End is Pie, Michael Tansini with Live and Let Pie? , Dorothy with The pie's the limit and Martin Price with Crust obeying orders.
Some chose the filling to build a pun around. There was Mince sauce from Maggie, Mince management from Brian Gunn and Mince Lies from Speed.
But the gold star this week goes to Sarah Trieste for Give pies a chance. It has it all. Bravo.
