Since I love jewels (I chose my username wisely, yo) the winner of today's Gold Star is Quantum Traveler and the wonderful pun-chain that he/she created! JOY!

To start today's festivities I thought I'd introduce you to my new favourite cover of The Sound of Music's 'My Favourite Things' because you are all my favourite things. Also, I am making mashed potatoes with my favourite things: potatoes, bacon, butter, caramelized onions and garlic. But really, it's for you all! You're all my raindrops on roses! And whiskers on kittens! Also also, did I write 'favourite' enough times that it now looks funny in your mind? FAVOURITE.

ANYHOODLE, to the comments. What have we got today?

The 'burning diamonds' story got a whole sparkly series of puns. Read it all, it is a thing of beauty:

This article is awesome! Seriously, it's a real gem. - Quantum Traveler

We simply cannot believe the actors in the new Lone Ranger film:

Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter in a film together? That's unheard of. - GusF

Did I ever tell you how much I love 'Duck Gets New Foot' and puns?

It’s expensive, but I’m sure someone will foot the bill. - QuantumTraveler

Did I miss any? Let me know!
