(to see their pages click on the image) • Feel free to make your own presentation and pun away. • Or contact me at yukna(at)emse.fr with the understanding that I have already been contacted by beautiful Russian girls seeking marriage, won a strange lottery in the Bahamas, and several relatives that I never knew I had, have left me money… • This is obviously a pun game to get your divergent neurons firing in English class. Certainly, as a teacher you can explain to the pun-challenged what each image and word actually mean. (if you don’t know see the comments with each slide or the answer key on the last slide.) • One salient point, this somewhat cerebral game can be played by illiterates.

Clownfish & Cereal Killer About the author: Chris Yukna was born in the antediluvian 50s, had a paper route at 9, sold Christmas cards door to door at 11, and washed dishes at 14. All these enriching work experiences convinced him early on that he was totally unsuited to working and therefore should become a space cadet, mad scientist, or teacher. He has three websites that he tries to update periodically: Science General (fun with science) Business Emporium (Esl business lessons & quizzes) Totally Unorthodox (where he puts everything else)
