Loop-ism contest!

As I was putting the two older kids to bed tonight, we got on a roll with loops puns. We developed serious giggle fits, to the point that Brent got annoyed and shut the door so he could commence with quiet reading time to our youngest.

Here were the best riddles:
Q: What do you call a knight who knits?
A: Sir Loopsalot.

Q: What do you call when Ingrid gets a new scooter, takes it out for her first practice ride, forgets how to turn and drives straight into a brick wall?
A: Loopsy-daisy.

Q: What do you call a mythical, short, Irish man dressed all in green who spends his whole pot of gold on yarn?
A: Looprechan.

Q: What do you call someone who refuses to learn to knit?
A: Nincomloop.

Q: What did the knitting war hero receive upon his return home?
A: A 21-gun saloop.

Naturally, there was also a plethora of puns that involved the word "poop," but I will spare you those. Anyhoo, I thought it would be fun to have a Loops pun contest! The winner gets a full bag of Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran! (And for those of you who don't win, take note that this lovely superwash merino is currently 30% off on our website, here).

Just leave a comment with your pun, and I'll announce the winner one week from tonight - Monday, May 12th. Happy punning!

- Shelley

This one goes out to Gina-the-Vampire:

Feeling like a number one
