Week 517 : Insert Joke Here


Full Text (854   words)
Copyright The Washington Post Company Aug 3, 2003

This Week's Contest was suggested by Hank Wallace of Washington. Inspired by our

recent contest to slip in a question to ask Miss Universe contestants, Hank proposes that you slip a single bogus sentence into next year's State of the Union address, figuring the Prez will probably just read it right off the teleprompter. First-prize winner gets a "Keen

Eddie" dartboard, with magnetic darts, a rather elaborate and expensive promotional item from Fox, featuring photos of principals from the new Fox TV show of the same name. Fox was hoping for good publicity, and we're happy to give it: The "Keen Eddie" dartboard is a class act, well-conceived and well executed, unlike the vapid TV show.

First Runner-Up wins the tacky but estimable Style

Invitational Loser pen. Other runners-up win the

coveted Style Invitational Loser T-shirt. Honorable mentions get the mildly sought-after Style Invitational bumper sticker. Send your entries via fax to

202-334-4312 or by e-mail to U.S. mail entries are no longer accepted. Deadline is Monday, Aug. 10. All entries must include the week number of the contest and your name, postal address and telephone number. E-mail entries must include the week number in the subject field. Contests will be judged on the basis of humor and originality. All entries become the property of The Washington Post. Entries may be edited for taste or content. Results will be

published in four weeks. No purchase required for

entry. Employees of The Washington Post, and their immediate relatives, are not eligible for prizes.

Pseudonymous entries will be disqualified. There is no revised title for next week's contest because they all stank.

Report from Week 513, in which we asked you to come up with Subject lines guaranteed to cause a person to delete an e-mail, unread. And no, we aren't playing favorites. We are playing LPMOE, the diversity-scorning game played by the Last Pure Meritocracy On Earth.
