Contest! Contest!



Copyright Thadman available via Flickr.com

It's pretty funny. Actually it is hysterical. Kind of hard to top this picture right? But that is what you are going to have to do. Be funnier than this picture. To enter, write a story - no less than one full sentence, no more than 250 words - something, anything that is really gut wrenchingly funny. That's what I'm looking for. You can tell a funny true story, write a caption for the picture, or make up a funny joke, I don't care, as long as it makes me laugh. This picture gives you an idea of what cracks me up. If for some reason you try and try and realize you are just not that funny, then please feel free to commission friends, family and neighbors who are funnier to come up with a winning submission.

To win, your submission has to be "pee my pants" funny. Creativity is key. While fart jokes are great, there probably isn't a variation of a fart joke that I haven't already heard. So if you're gonna fart, make sure it's a doozy!

In the event that I have run out of Depends and need consulting assistance, Da Man will step in as a tiebreaker judge. But this is my contest, not his so he will need to watch his step!

So to recap the rules:

1. Submit something funny, a line, a caption to the picture, a story, an anecdote, whatever. No less than one sentence, no more than 250 words.

2. Submissions open til 5:00pm EST Sunday, April 20th, 2008.

3. Email me your submission at ello.echo@gmail.com

4. For the Reader's Choice award, I shall begin posting entries over the weekend. Reader's choice voting begins early Monday morning and ends at midnight. Email me your choice for the funniest Reader's choice award at the above email address.

5. I shall post the two winners on Tuesday, April 22nd, on my birthday.

First Prize wins a $25 gift certificate to Amazon.

Reader's Choice award wins a $15 gift certificate to Amazon.

And one of you lucky people might randomly win a special Delicious New Treat Sensation. But not Mary or Kappa since they actually like the stuff! And not Paca cause he knows what it tastes like already. But everyone else, be warned! If I don't like your entry, you may get a special surprise! heh heh.

Gladiators! I have girded my loins. (Ha!) And am prepared for the onslaught of hilarity and loss of bodily functions. I salute you! Bring it on!!!!

I stared at this picture for five minutes wondering how they got the unicorn on the right to look so real.
Then I realized it was a tail.
Then I laughed.

I can see that's a monkey on the right, but what's that thing on the left? It kinda looks like another monkey, but it's got long ears and rabbit feet. Little help oh contest master.

Inspiring. ;)

Ello said...

Click on the picture and it will take you to a bigger sized picture for your viewing pleasure. Yes two monkeys! The one on the left is holding its nose as it stares into the buttocks of the monkey on the right. How much funnier can you get?

Merry Monteleone said...

Well this should be interesting... I've already emailed, though if I think of more I may enter twice.

Charles Gramlich said...

I entered.

Oh, lordy! I'm glad I'm not quite up to running another contest just yet, 'cause I suck at being funny on command. [hides] I'm going to enjoy reading the entries, though. :D

I can't wait to read all those funny entries funny people come up with, Ello. I don't think I enter - I just don't have anything in mind.
The picture indeed is funny!!
