“Take away that pudding—it has no theme.”
—Sir Winston Churchill
Ten weeks ago, 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: Summer 2014 through Winter 2015/2016. We’ve reached the end of our journey through time. Create a funny story, parody, or article based on one of the following themes:
- What I Did Last Summer and the Summer Before That
- The Very-Difficult-To-Read
- Hot Lead Death
- The New Freedom
- Pasquinade For Dummies
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.
