In honor of our great appreciation for those who love to order, classify, categorize, group, arrange, grade and rank (and just in time for Taxonomist Appreciation Day), Buzz Hoot Roar is proud to announce its third annual pun contest.

Check out one of last year’s winners:


Pun by Natalie Sopinka (@phishdoc). Illustration by Christin Hardy (@c_hristin).

Here’s how it works:

1. Tweet us your best taxonomy-related pun by Wednesday, March 9.

2. Our celebrity judges will select five favorites.

3. Winners will receive: their puns illustrated on Buzz Hoot Roar’s blog, a set of printed greeting cards to share with the taxonomists in their lives, and a BHR super-soft T-shirt.

Let the witticisms begin!
