Punder surveillance

I have found no newspaper puns for this one, but the opportunities appear to be endless.

The story:

Parents remove daughter from school after they install CCTV in the school loos.

My pun idea:

TAPING THE PISS

Rudi's:

BOG BROTHER

Adele's:

SEE-PEE-TV

Another Wossy plunder

Hmm, either Jonathan Ross is exceedingly stupid, or the press are jumping on every vaguely controversial thing that the BBC presenter - who is now back on our screens and 'dis'gracing the airwaves - inadvertently says. His latest blunder was to suggest that someone should do unspeakable things to an old lady to give her "one last night before the grave".

The Sun splashes on a double-page spread:

WOSS HE DONE NOW

My (Daily Mail?!) pun idea:

FILTH 2009

Wood carried by pundercurrent

Hundreds of tons of timberrrrr have washed up on the Kent coast after it was swept off a stricken Russian cargo ship. Eagle-eyed looters have been loading their vans with the planks, although strictly speaking it still belongs to the original owner.

Tons of puns on this today, with my fave being the Mirror's:

A WALK ON THE BEECH

My pun idea:

PLANKS VERY MUCH

Inaugura-pun

The entire world and his dog watched President Obama's inauguration ceremony if this week's media coverage is anything to go by. After the ceremony, Barack and 'Chelle had a good old-fashioned boogie at no fewer than TEN partays.

Pun-wise, I am a particular fan of this from the Sun:

GROOVE OBAMA

Or how about:

THEY THINK IT'S YOUR OVAL..IT IS NOW!

My pun idea

IN-AWE-GURATION

More punny than sense

Football superstar Kaka's £243,000,000,000,000,000 move to Manchester City has collapsed. What a surprise.

The Sun's front page:

KAKA DEAL KNACKA'D

The Sun's back page:

STABBED IN THE KAK

My pun idea:

SORRY CITY FANS, IT'S KAK TO REALITY

Australian Opun

Tennis star Venus Williams has shown off her freaky new Marge Simpson-esque beehive during a press conference at the Australian Open in Melbourne.

Great one from the Mirror:

VENUS SILLY-AMS

Go Andy!!

Karma Chamele-pun

Boy George has been sentenced to 15 months in prison for falsely imprisoning a male escort. As a side issue (and for the purposes of my pun), he is also looking a bit on the chubby side.

The Sun's / Daily Mirror's headlines:

BYE GEORGE

My pun idea:

BOY GORGE

Punidentified flying object

The Sun is still banging on about that wind turbine that got 'hit by a UFO'. Whatever! In today's paper, they spoke of how they have sent their own 'investigator' (aka hack) to the wind farm in question to do some of their own investigations (since the conclusion of the official investigation done by a, you know, 'expert', was simply too dull).

Their headline today:

FARMAGEDDON

My pun idea:

ALIEN WIND FARM

Oh, so weak!! 'Wind' doesn't even rhyme with 'ant' - aaarrggghh!!

Mispunderestimated

George W Bush has made his final press conference as President of the United States of America. The Daily Mirror is obviously pleased that he is finally about to shut his mouth with the headline:

BUSH OFF

Along the same lines, my pun idea:

GEORGE W SHUSH

Punaldo

Man Utd player Ronaldo has written off his Ferrari after crashing in a tunnel.

My pun idea:

PRANG UNITED

I need some punshine!

Brrrrr, it's almost too cold for punning. In fact I gave myself a brief birthday break - apologies pun-pals!!

This headline in the Daily Mirror caught my eye in amongst the celebrations:

DUNCES ON ICE

A family took their tot for a rather risky walk on a frozen lake.

Here are some fab cold weather puns from Joe:

SNOW JOKING MATTER
ICE TO SEE YOU
WHO'D HAVE THAWT IT?
IN THE COLDRUMS

Don't mention the pun

'Fawlty Towers' actor Andrew Sachs - aka 'Manuel' - is to appear in Coronation Street at some point later this year, although we don't know what role he will play or how long he will appear in the soap.

Nice use of colour from the Daily Mirror, with:

QUERONATION STREET
