Clip art for my contest

A HUGE thanks to ruwth , for the winning contest title. Its perfect! *Smile*

Thank you to My Mothers Angel in my Ear for the beautiful Awardicon that graces our contest! *Delight*

Do you have a funny anecdote? Sure, we all do! Tons and tons of those red-in-the-face, never-live-this-down kinda stories that have friends and family alike ROTFLing.

Think your anecdote is funny enough to win prizes?

I LOVE to laugh - its nature's own remedy for what ails ya. I can't help but find myself sometimes thinking back at some embarassing thing I did, and I laugh til I can't breathe. Yeah, I get some weird looks, but hey, they are just the makings of another hilarious anecdote! *Laugh*

Clipart for my contest

An anecdote is always non-fiction, and either a true, funny personal experience or a rendering of someone else's. Here is an example:

 You Kinda Had To Be There...  (E)
A beach trip to remember...much to my chagrin.

Short stories and poetry are NOT eligible!

Sure, you may think anecdotes are easy - you tell them, and people are wiping away tears and needing to go tinkle. BUT that same story as a piece of writing might send em looking for a good place to nap. *Confused*

You see, your facial and hand expressions along with the inflection in your voice are a huge part of what makes a funny story, well... funny. Take that off the table, and things can get tricky.

Now I know you're asking yourself, Sure, WW, you get all the laughs, but what's in this for me? *Confused*

Well, funny you should ask that!
