Best Line in Contest
Most Humorous Line
Most Intriguing Line
As I was reading through the entries in the contest, I thought I could probably come up with a few, just for craps and laughters. So I entered. Lo and behold, I actually won for the Most Humorous Line. I really don't think it was that funny, and I'm not going to post what it was, because I'm too embarrassed. I'm sure if you really wanted to find it, you could dig around. But here's what was said about it:
"Arthur, you've got a lot going here with this one: a strong intro to your story, a friendly, conversational tone, and a stand-up comedian zinger of a punchline. I also laughed out loud reading it, the litmus test of all humorous lines."
It was totally unworthy of such praise. But I'm still proud that I won. So, why do I share this with you? Because I never win anything and usually just pass over these types of things without even trying. So next time you think to yourself, "Man, I could do that." DO IT! That is all.
