Wait, “Pumkin” seeds? No, I don’t want that!
(I’ve recently become acquainted with Pumkin because some of their educational videos are included with Zoodles, the “kid mode” app I use to keep my two-year-old son from tapping on ads to see what they do and buying downloadable content while using the tablet.)
Last night I noticed @BadAstronomer posting ideas for a Twitter meme, #fishpopstars. It’s pretty much what you’d expect: take a singer or band name and make a pun with the name of a fish.
Katie and I came up with these:
- Death Crab for Cutie
- Flounders of Wayne
- Vienna Tang
- Betta than Ezra
- Dace of Base (or Ace of Bass)
Some favorites from the event:
- beano76: Sushi and the Banshees
- shinkaide: Squid Vicious
- MisterElGuapo: No Trout
- ebrown2112: Fleetwood Mackerel
- Caissie: Sharkira
- dominichamon: Kylie Minnow
- ethanwc: Crash Test Guppies
- ThisModernDeath: Ling Cod Park
- earlkabong: Herman’s Hermit Crabs
- znmeb: Pike and Tuna Turner
- AndyJukes: Smelton John
- KenPlume: Mackerel Jackson
- notgiamatti: Jefferson Starfish
It looks like it’s still going on if you’re in the mood for fish puns.
As a spinoff of the “lesser books” meme on Twitter (taking a classic book title and making it mundane, trivial, or otherwise lesser), someone started in on “lesser plays.”
I came up with a few:
There’s a meme going around Twitter called #ZodiacFacts, mostly random astrological statements. I figured I’d post some actual, y’know, facts about the Zodiac.
