Just because it’s Monday…
Did you see the story about the runaway llamas?
The story was blowing up Twitter, of course. I imagine that office productivity was way down this afternoon, but office worker morale was probably way up. Seems like a fair tradeoff. Happy minions are useful minions, after all.
That being said, we all know that there is going to be an attempt by various news outlets and Interwebz pundits to write some clever headlines and comments about this high-steed chase. (It’s gold, Jerry. Gold.) Some of those attempts will be more successful than others, no doubt.
In addition, many puns will be taken quickly, and it will become challenging to think of new ones.
Accordingly, I feel that it’s my part as a lover of puns to provide these brave souls with some headline options. You are welcome to these, llama fans. (Though how about a shoutout to your girl over here?)

I’m spent… but I do it all for you.
So, I present to you the first in a (possible) series… illustrated punny pet names! Our first fur-lebrity to get the picture treatment?
Everyone’s favorite lifeguard, the star of Haywatch… Ms. Hamela Anderson! Please enjoy this autographed photo from the lady hamster herself:
Fun fact (or… just a fact): this is my first time drawing a hamster. I have a feeling that this news will not surprise you.
So, tell me… is this feature a keeper? (Be honest.) If so, any suggestions for a possible title? (In addition to “Picture this Pun,” I briefly considered “Profiles in Punnage” as an alternate.)
