Question for Sept 25

Why is it called a PUN? Since it's a play on words shouldn't it be a POW?

maybe but POW was already taken for comic strip onomatopeias so they had to think of something different.

The word pun itself is thought to be originally a contraction of the (now archaic) pundigrion. This Latin term is thought to have originated from punctilious, which itself derived from the Italian puntiglio (originally meaning "a fine point"), diminutive of punto, "point", from the Latin punctus, past participle of pungere, "to prick." These etymological sources are reported in the Oxford English Dictionary, which labels them "conjecture." beer

But I liked your idea of Playing Under Nuns better actually....
