“Take away that pudding—it has no theme.”
—Sir Winston Churchill
A couple 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: Fall 2001 through Spring 2003. The new millennium has really started to take off and you can pay for it all with the new Euro! Every country in Europe will want the Euro. It’s the Currency For The New Millennium! Create a funny story, parody, or article based on one of the following themes:
- Cleverly Deceptive
- Ticking Package Wrapped in Greasy Brown Paper
- Underground Comic
- Surreality Television
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.
