Actual cinnamon buns in the oven led to synonym buns. Which got me on a roll that led to some pretty silly cookies. Seriously though, the English language and I have a long and convoluted relationship. Come along while I navigate my cookie-documented IDIOMactic journey!
Holiday office party for the judicial courts in Colorado. Please pun, the client said. I don’t have to be asked twice. Her favorite were the ‘briefs’…
So I just got a little education about the New Jersey shoreline. Never knew about Long Beach Island before this summer and boy, was I missing out. I also learned the “Don’t Give Up the Ship” story, as this flag flies at the host’s house. …thought about using more word play but one has to draw the line in the sand somewhere.
Oh no I didn’t. Yes WHEY, I did! This order was for a newly married couple who met at the gym and were both into power lifting. The client gave me free rein with design and so I LUNGED into the puns. Never been so dead (lift) serious in my life.
Another play on words??? So shocking. Let me know if you are getting tired of them. Apparently I never do. And I am kinda pleased with the random mermaid skeleton. Do I even have to say that my mind works in weird ways???
Dear Halloween: I get it. You’re spooky. All that creaking and moaning is very expressive. But I am just not that into the scary vibe. I’d rather flaunt my haunt with a flavor of fun. Turning word play possibilities into probabilities. Hope we can still be friends. My best, MMB
Here are the cookies that went out to the GoBoBakeSale this year (fundraiser for ALS).
Our family gets up at dawn to start punking on April’s Fool Day. I am opting for a kinder, gentler April One in 2016. One that (I hope) makes you think and laugh.
EGGplant (noun) \’eg, plant\ Egg-yielding vegetation, germinated from those Easter eggs not found in last season’s hunt.
True story of where next year’s Easter eggs come from… #not.
Let the 2016 valentine season begin. First up is my ode to Star Wars 2016. It’s a War on word play.
Hope you are the toast of the town this New Years Eve! Here’s to a wonderful and adventurous 2016.
And, I promise, this is my last word play for 2015… 🙂
Boxed and ready for our New Years host.
#truth My never ending love of puns extends to every food experience. Just one trip to my favorite sushi restaurant and these little jokesters started hanging around IG (yep, you can find me at MamaMayerBakery on Instagram). Oh, and it’s been a summer of humorous inspiration. Just you wait.
