Someone asked me the other day:
On what object around a house would you find a punt?
Could be a trick question, but just in case it isn't...
A wine bottle. The indentation on the bottom of the bottle is called a punt.
It could be:
A television set that is currently displaying an American football game. (In American football, a "punt" is a particular way of kicking the ball.)
Alternately, it could be:
A very large grassy field that completely surrounds a house (so it's "around the house"), upon which some people are playing a game of American football.
An old Irish piggy bank?
A punt is an Irish pound. I say "old" because of course Ireland no longer uses them (now uses the Euro instead).
