Theme

The goal of this contest is to write a HUMO(U)ROUS poem. There are no restrictions or guidelines on the poem style or length, it simply must be FUNNY! It can be HAHA funny, LOL funny, ROFL funny, sarcastic, cynical, ironic, or satirical. The bottom line is HUMO(U)R, got it?

Rules

Yes, even a fun contest like this needs rules.

1) You can only submit one poem.
2) The poem cannot be submitted as a deviation. All submissions must be noted to PoetryPlease by the deadline with the poem pasted in the body and "Humo(u)r Contest" in the subject line.
3) This contest is open to both members and non-members of PoetryPlease, but only members will be eligible to vote in deciding the winners. Note: If you'd like to become a member, click here)
4) Your entry must be a new poem, you cannot submit a poem that was written before the date this contest was announced.
5) Staff members of PoetryPlease are not eligible to enter the contest.
6) All entries are to remain anonymous until the winners are announced. Any breach of this rule will disqualify the associated poem.

Deadline

All submissions must be received by 10:00 pm EST on June 22, 2008. Any poems received after this time will not be considered.

Judges

:iconpunknera: :iconangelofgod87: :iconsynith: :iconeagle-elf: :iconisabellakay:

Assuming we receive a significant number of submissions, the judging panel will narrow down the list of submissions to the Top 10, after which these 10 poems will be posted for all PoetryPlease members to vote on. The Top 3 poems will then be revealed; we anticipate the winners will be announced in early July.

Prizes

As it stands right now, besides the satisfaction of winning and the exposure you get from being a winner, there are no prizes. That said, if anyone would like to donate a prize, please note PoetryPlease with a clear description of the prize you're willing to donate. Thank you!

I have a great idea in mind (actually I've had it for some six months). If I can turn it into a poem I'll definitely enter.

I might do this, I\'m not sure... mostly because I haven\'t figured out how to submit writing into the DA. I\'ve seen people post their own stories on the site, right? How do you do that? I\'ve been here for almost a year or two and I still don\'t know! :(

When you submit a deviation... you have two buttons... submit a file and submit text... you click on submit text and you start writing in the little text box that pops up ... when you're finished hit OK and TA DA ... keep on submiting your work as usual.... nothing to it :)

Hope you try your hand at writing a funny poem :)
Good luck
