“Take away that pudding—it has no theme.”
—Sir Winston Churchill
Last month, National Pasquinade began prompting you with themes from the last twenty years of the magazine. The challenge each week is 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: Spring 2009 through Fall 2010. Somebody’s got a new iPhone. Not you, of course, but somebody’s got one. Think of all the time you have to create some funny material for a humor magazine that nobody has heard of. Create a funny story, parody, or article based on one of the following themes:
- Home and Garden
- Hi-Def Digital
- Zombies, Zombies, Zombies
- Wing and a Prayer
- All Fun and Games
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.
