A competition which will make ya giggle!

It has been brought to my attention that there have been loads and loads of brilliant funny jokes and other great stuff posted in this section.

I'd like to start a competition for the funniest jokes, the prize is your own page on the main area51newmexico site! The more original the better. Not sure how many "winners" there will be but once we have a few many suggestions in, I'll start a poll for members to vote on. If we have loads, I might even spilt it into sections.

If you have already posted something you would like to bring to my attention, please post or link to it here. For example, I rather enjoy metal explained or perhaps we could post the best of Taf's column 8.

So get thinking, linking and laughing. I order you to do so *evil laughter*

I get the feeling Helen wants to update her site, but is having a hard time finding content. Razz

Well, a lot of the humour on there has been 'pinched' from here at some point. Meh, this is your chance to be famous Very Happy

I'm not expecting this to win, but since I made it up, it qualifies as a kind of creativity:

Eminent British adventurers Runcible and Marjory Whitherspoon-Chive are on yet another adventure, this time into the uncharted deserts of Arabia, and come across the camp of nomadic tribal chief Sheik Abdul bin Azziz, who entertains them most graciously.

Runcible, out of politeness, comments that the Sheik has the most magnificent herd of camels he has ever seen, and the Sheik insists he accept a gift of his finest camel. When he protests, the Sheik said that the hospitality law of the desert obliged people to give anything the guest or host admires, on pain of death.

Later, he mentions in passing that the tent's decorative hangings would be worth a fortune in Europe, and the Sheik gives him the most richly decorated, refusing Runcible''s protests.

Later he complains that his rifle is not as good as the ones the nomads use in the desert, and the Sheik gives him a case of rifles.

Feeling frightfully embarrassed, Runcible tells the Sheik he has been far too generous, and is there any small favour he could do for the Sheik, who replies "Sir, you have a most beautiful wife."

Q: A kurd sitting in a car needs to blow his nose and the tissue box is on the passenger seat at the back. How does he get them?

A: He puts his car in reverse and drives back to try and get them.

Rach came up with the suggestion of having the winners of the new lol cat game thanked/honoured on a new page on the main site. We jus think we need someone who's particularly good with editting graphics to put the winning caption on the pics. Me thinks that will be a good idea.

You're kidding. It can be done on paint Very Happy

Simply add the text in a sans-serif font (all capitals preferably) in black, then write the same thing in a smaller font in white and place it "inside". or if your graphics software can handle it, white with a black outline.
