O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships

I've read quite a few "what it is" articles on the subject event. This piece, the second on the page, is just about the best of recent attempts to describe the event. Check it out...and the event, too. Since we live so far away, I've been missing the event, which is one of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon.

This year, for the first time, we who really can't make it there will be able to aim our data fire hoses at http://www.punpunpun.com/ and soak up the event...LIVE! Again, that will be May 16 from noon to 5 Central Daylight Time. Some photos of last year's event are here.

If you live in or around Austin, grab your sunscreen, hat, folding chair or blanket, some money (It IS a fund-raiser, after all!) and head for the corner of 5th and Neches streets at Brush Square Park. Support the museum by purchasing food and drink, a fun tee shirt. There are usually several means of showing your support available.
