“Take away that pudding—it has no theme.”
—Sir Winston Churchill
Several 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 2005 through Winter 2006/2007. Load some Coldplay onto your iPod and sharpen your comedy skillz. Create a funny story, parody, or article based on one of the following themes:
- Selling Out
- One Size To Fit Them All
- Curiously Optimistic
- Quantum Entanglement
- Fun With The Elderly
- Tentative Travel
- Tucker Carlson in Extreme Settings
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.
