I like the "U.C.L.A." pun. Sometimes U.C.L.A., sometimes you don't.

Have the forum users ever thought of starting a pun game (call it a pun challenge or anything for that matter)?

Ox, Ford knows how to deliver a pun.

... a pun-writing contest. (I can never remember the right words.)

You can tune a piano but you can't tuna fish. In the "tuna" part we have a verb "tune" plus an indefinite article "a." When you pronounce these together, you have the impression you "tune a fish."

Your turn. Don't forget to add a rationale to your pum, I mean your pun. ;)
