With the Oscars being mere days away, it’s time to start your preparations. Now, I’ve never won an Oscar ballot contest in my life. And frankly I couldn’t care less. No, I choose to focus my attentions elsewhere. Specifically, on puns.

So continuing with a Pajiba tradition, here they are, your official Oscar picks, based not at all on actual merit or likelihood of winning, but entirely on their food- based punibility. Which, I think we can all agree, is the more important criterion.

I’ve clearly only scratched the first layer of the dip here. Add your picks below, my fellow pun McConaugh-sseurs.
