What to Submit?
Your funniest short poem ever!! Old or new!
For this contest, I am going to be super selective. I don't want to end up with a long list of top ten this time where every placement has several winners. I want exactly my ten favorite humorous poems as the only winners! In the event that it is too difficult for me to rate them in order of their "funny factor," I will perhaps just give 3 top placements for the best ten, but I want to try something different this time and have only ten winners in total. No HM's, just ten top winners. Of course, my list will be purely subjective because I am asking for short poems that make ME chuckle! If you know what I like for humor, YOU will have the advantage!
FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE RULES:
1) NO NAMES: I want to be surprised.
2) At the bottom, put the name of my contest: Show me the Funny. This way, I will know better than to read your poem if I happen to come across it as I do comments here. I will only read the poems in my contest box after the contest fills up.
3) YOU determine what SHORT means. If your funniest poem is a bit long, just keep in mind that I prefer short poems, so your longer one better be DANG FUNNY!
Top ten! Glory!
