Victor Hugo once said that “puns are the droppings of soaring wits.” According to Fred Allen, “Hanging is too good for the man who makes puns. He should be drawn and quoted.” Edgar Allan Poe said that “those who dislike puns the most are those least able to utter them.” Once a month at Madison’s High Noon Saloon, Art Allen hosts a pun slam competition entitled “Pundamonium” that puts those sentiments to the test. Ten contestants have two minutes each to make puns based on prompts, then are immediately judged by members of the audience. Art Allen joined the Monday 8 O’Clock Buzz on July 29, 2019.
