I have discovered a fun new game. You take the word “Shumway” and you splice it into other words. My family and I have played a crude form of the game for years, telling each other to “Shum up” or “Shum it up, you.”

Here are some fun ones:

  • Shumday Bloody Shumday
  • Shumcle Buck
  • Shumrock (for St. Patrick’s Day)
  • Shumdog Millionaire (ok, Levi came up with that)
  • Shumpelstiltskin
  • Crime and Shumishment
  • Shumwhere over the rainbow
  • Here comes the Shum
  • Good Day Shumshine
  • Shumse and Shumsibility (not the best, but you knew what I was talking about!)
  • Fort Shumter
  • The Shum will come out tomorrow (no she won’t)
  • Shum and Shummer
  • Shumpty Dumpty
  • Shumdon Bridge is falling down
  • Shumby (that was supposed to be Gumby. I hated him, and this pun is not good. bummer. Or should I say “Shummer”. No. Don’t use my name as a negative interjection.)
  • Shummer. (That’s an army-style car.)
  • Shum’s the word
  • Get thee to a Shummery!
  • Band on the Shum
  • Shum away Ralph
  • Forrest Shump
  • Shum of a gun
  • Shum of Sam
  • Shumdiddlyumptious
  • 500 Days of Shummer

So many more! Also, you can just kind of put Shum in front of anything and it sounds cool. I used to call my room the “Shum-Lair.” That was fun!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy trying your hand at ShumPun! All the kids are doing it!

  1. Looks like Shumone was having Shum fun! Your house should be the Shum House or something like that…or your car the Shum-mobile! Would your life Bucket List (if you have one) be called the Shumbucket?
