This year I played this contest a little different, and left in the puns during the regular year, but pulled out the ones that made it through the voting rounds. So these are the ones that made it through the voting threads in their respective tabs and elsewhere for your enjoyment. Because of that, there are a few more here than the regular contests. I'll let you decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Have fun.

Trigger warning: if you hate puns, this is not the contest for you. Negative reactions may include eye-rolling, audible groaning, and feelings of general stabbiness.
