The Pun-Off World Championships are a celebration of the lowest form of humor in high style. Since 1977, punsters from around the world have gathered in Brush Square Park, behind the O. Henry Museum, to impress onlookers with their clever wordplay.
The punsters compete in two categories: "Punniest of Show," wherein contestants perform 90-second rehearsed bits, and "Punslingers," which involves a rapid-fire exchange of puns between contestants, until one is left speechless.
