Small YouTube Channel Review #1: The EntrePUNeur

Remember when you were a child and your father would crack a joke? Did you groan, shrug your head, or even roll your eyes at it? You don’t have to be ashamed, we all did it at one point. That’s why they’re called “Dad Jokes.”I don’t have children of my own. However, I have two nephews and a niece that I spend plenty of time around. When I crack a similar joke of “Dad Joke” quality, the kiddos shake their heads, groan, and sometimes even roll their eyes. They call them “Uncle Jim Jokes.”


Remember when you were a child and your father would crack a joke? Did you groan, hang your head, or even roll your eyes at it? You don’t have to be ashamed, we all did it at one point. That’s why they’re called “Dad Jokes.”

I don’t have children of my own. However, I have two nephews and a niece that I spend plenty of time around. When I crack a similar joke of “Dad Joke” quality, the kiddos shake their heads, groan, and sometimes even roll their eyes. They call them “Uncle Jim Jokes.”

But sometimes, when the planets align and the moon is full… they laugh.

I grew up on “Dad Jokes,” puns, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Dr. Demento, and Monty Python. There’s something about a bad joke that makes me laugh, even when my audience doesn’t. Sometimes it’s better when they don’t laugh.

However, I’ve been watching a YouTube channel that has changed my mind a bit about how to go about punslinging.

“The LaffyTaffy Wrapper Principle” explains Ryan, the EntrePUNeur in his video Punuary is HERE – How to Pun explains the art of making a good pun.

“One has to try very hard to not make their puns sound like a LaffyTaffy wrapper. Because the classiest, highest forms of puns are molded into conversation,” he says. “LaffyTaffy puns are kinda like a toddler trying to fit a square peg-thing into a circle.”

Over the last two months, the EntrePUNeur celebrated Punuary where he made videos with pun challenges, pun guns, puns from viewer suggestions, and even a parody of Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood titled Bad Puns.

This year marks his fourth year on the platform and with the help of his wife Hannah, you can tell that the quality of the channel’s videos has increased.

As of this article, the channel sits at 1,371 subscribers and 84,523 views.

From his Bad Pun Parody. Don’t worry, he’s a funny guy despite that rage he’s showing!

So, if you like to watch and listen to quality puns from a snappy dresser (his trusty bow-tie is never far from him), then head over to his channel and give one of his videos a chance. If you feel so inclined, hit that subscribe button, leave a comment, like it or dislike it, maybe even ring that notification bell. I’m sure he’d appreciate it.

What over small YouTube channel would you like me to review? I’m looking for channels with under 10,000 subscribers to write about. Sure, there’s the PewDiePie’s and T-Series of the site, but there’s other channels that need love.

James Master

A natural born reader, James tackled the works of Stephen King and Michael Crichton when he was in the sixth grade. His influential young mind, now twisted by the science fiction and horror genre, James did what any respectable young man would. He began crafting stories. Instead of playing in recess, James would write stories about dinosaurs and serial killers. He hasn’t stopped writing or reading which is where his path crossed with Burning Willow Press, LLC. Ironically enough, you can find James’s first published work, “The Dark Forest,” in the anthology “Crossroads in the Dark II: Urban Legends” published by Burning Willow Press. His first book, “The Book of Roland” published Feb. 25, 2017, is a 2017 Summer Indie Book Award nominee. It is the first of seven in the Soul Eater Chronicles and it is centered around a katana wielding, gunslinging, pop culture referencing monk named Timothy as he fights the incarnations of the Seven Deadly Sins. His next book, “The Book of Mark”, is scheduled to come out early 2018. James graduated from Indiana University South Bend with a Bachelor’s degree in English and a Minor in Film Studies in 2015. By day, James works as a mild-mannered reporter for The Pilot News as well as an editor for the weekly paper The News-Mirror. By night, he works for BWP reading submissions or writing his own works.
