“Take away that pudding—it has no theme.”
—Sir Winston Churchill
A few weeks ago, National Pasquinade began prompting you with themes from the last twenty years of the magazine. The challenge each week will be to write a funny piece, based on the themes below, that could have appeared in the magazine during the issue’s time frame.
Time Frame: Summer 2003 through Winter 2004/2005. Remember how Britney was so, like, pretty, and everyone was into tater tots? Yeah, me neither. Create a funny story, parody, or article based on one of the following themes:
- Global Warming
- Goodbye, ePasquinade
- The Special Supersized Spring Break Spectacular
- Reader’s Digest Parody
- Federally-Enforced Christmas
Share your results, or a link to your results if they’re longer, in the comments, if you feel so compelled. If you’re especially satisfied with your results, why not submit your finished piece to National Pasquinade for its 20th Anniversary Issue? The deadline for submissions is November 15, 2017, if you pay attention to deadlines.Happy writing.
