PunnyFuzzles is a brand spanking new type of puzzle
PunnyFuzzles is a brand new type of puzzle. It combines the challenge of a Spoonerism word game with a collection of relevant images and optional captions. That's where the funny lives, in the captions. The game is revolutionary in its simplicity. PunnyFuzzles is quickly becoming the gold standard for multiple choice questions, bringing together logical and visual content in each puzzle. The marriage of the two educational techniques has a compounding effect for reinforcing any lessons being covered. Developers and educators take note, PunnyFuzzles is the model for multiple choice questions on a hand-held device in what is rapidly becoming a hand-held world.
We are encouraging fan support to get the word out on the following three topics:
1) We would like to inform people over 50 years old, that PunnyFuzzles can help keep
your mind alert, possibly stave off, or slow down the effects of memory loss associated
with advanced age. We also need to get the word out to the AARP organization, healthcare workers, and anyone who works with the elderly.
2) We also would like help to get the word out about the Late Nite Television Writers Challenge which is set to kick off in October and we're going to invite the people at the Guiness Book of World Records to partake.
PunnyFuzzles has challenged the writers of interview-style late night television shows to come up with their own funny puzzles using our Spoonerism format. There are many puzzles that we would have to reject due to content-issues, that may be inappropriate for our child-friendly format, but may be perfectly suitable for the late-night television audience, which obviously has a different set of standards. More details to follow.
3) Finally, we want parents of children with mild developmental issues to be aware that PunnyFuzzles can be helpful. I recently had a discussion with the mother of a ten year old boy with attention deficit and mild information processing issues. She informed me that her clever son had figured out how to play PunnyFuzzles, and he loves it. He especially likes it that the game provides encouragement when puzzles are solved correctly, giving him valuable confidence building messages. Hopefully, we will follow-up with more feedback from our fans.
Take care for now,Fain Brood
THE ICE BREAKER INITIATIVE!
We want people to make new friends. It's rarely easy to approach a cutie, someone that you'd like to meet. We suggest you use PunnyFuzzles as an ice-breaker. Let the Blue Koala do the heavy lifting. You walk up to someone that you'd like to meet and ask them, "Do you like word games?"
People love word games! Now that you've broken the ice, you want to introduce yourself, "My name is Fain or Julie, and there's a cool, new game that you can get for free on your phone, it's called PunnyFuzzles. Its a Spoonerism game, which means you interchange the leading letters of two words to form two totally new words. Don't hold it against me, but the game's first Spoonerism was Sara Palin, from the elections 8 years ago. If you exchange the leading letters of her name, Sara Palin becomes, Para Sailin'. "
Now, here's where you take out your phone and explain how the first puzzle works. Explain that you form 3 Spoonerisms using the primary word and each of the 3 given options. Tell them that the Spoonerism that matches the image, is the correct answer, and if the image is hard to make out, you can click it to reveal the caption, or clue, that's where the funny lives.
Then, there's one last part of the ice-breaker initiative: If you make a new friend, let us know the story of how the two of you met in a few brief sentences, share your story with our website and maybe, include a selfie of the two of you together.
Thank you,Fain Brood
To form a Spoonerism, you are given two words: Exchange the leading letters from both words, up to the 1st vowel.
At times, you may need to exchange more than one letter from either one, or both words, to form your Spoonerism.

Himself lecturer, his mouth at times failed to keep up with his keen intellect. The resulting unintentional tongue-twisting of sounds and words became known as spoonerism.”

"PunnyFuzzles is more than just a game, it is a teaching platform. It is well-suited for hand-held learning and playing. It is a brand new type of puzzle that never existed until now. I think PunnyFuzzles maintains the largest collection of Spoonerisms in the world, but I'll have to double-check that."
The Reverend William Archibald Spooner was born in London on July 22, 1844. He was an albino and suffered defective eyesight, and it is thought that this caused some of his verbal confusions which were later dubbed "spoonerisms". These included "it is kisstomary to cuss the bride".
Spooner, who died on August 29, 1930, was an Anglican priest, scholar and writer. He studied at New College, Oxford, before lecturing there for 60 years, in history, philosophy and divinity.
He was apparently an amiable, kind and hospitable man, though absent-minded. He also had a keen intellect, which is where his problems began. His tongue barely kept up with his thought processes, resulting in an unintentional interchange of sounds, producing a phrase with a meaning entirely different from the one intended. That is what is now called a spoonerism.
The more agitated the good Reverend became, the more acute the manifestation of sound switching. There are a number of well substantiated oddities of a more subtle kind: "Was it you or your brother who was killed in the Great War?" fro example.
Spooner is buried In Grasmere Cemetery in the Lake District.
