After a two-month absence, the Write Your Own Joke (WYOJ) contest is back. As before, I will supply two potential set-ups. Your task will be to supply the punchlines.
Let's get right to it:
Topic 1: "LeBron James was beaten soundly yesterday in two games of H-O-R-S-E by a warehouse worker on an outdoor court at Venice Beach. __________."
Topic 2: "The IOC is investigating the silver and bronze medalists in the Olympic hammer throw, both from Belarus, for suspected doping offenses. __________."
Since it's been a while, let's review some ground rules. If you plan to submit a punchline to either or both set-ups, please don't read the other comments until you've done so. My concern isn't so much that you'll swipe the ideas of your fellow posters, but that you'll try to avoid using the same lines/concepts as others. Honest duplication is a near certainty in an exercise like this. I'm more concerned that you give your imagination free rein.
I will post a winner and some honorable mention selections for each set-up as tomorrow morning's post. Good luck, and have fun.
