...and a curse.

I had the idea the other day for this, and thought it would be fun. If you've never played WDtC before, it's quite simple. One player draws a question card that has a couple blanks in it and then they draw a couple of noun cards to fill in those blanks. This creates a joke and the players are challenged to come up with a punchline for that joke. And don't feel like you need to be ultra-creative. Sometimes the most inane or obscure answer will be just right to get people laughing.

Rules of the PbF game: I will create a joke using some cards from the game. I will give approximately 24 hours for people to geekmail me punchlines for the joke. Then I will post a poll for people to vote on which punchline they like the best, but I will set a deadline for people to vote (probably only another 24 hours to keep things moving.) The punchline that receives the most votes in that time will win, and I will award the author a small geekgold prize, and then post a new joke. For now let's keep it to 1 answer per person in case there are a ton of participants (pick your best one.) And, if I think of something clever I may throw in my own answer as well.


Note: Don't post your punchline here, send it to me by geekmail so that no one knows who wrote which line. Also, you might want to subscribe to this thread so you will get notification when I've posted the poll.

Here's the first joke:

What's the difference between a Bartender and a Secretary?

Isn't there some way in polls to prohibit seeing the results until it's over?

Maybe all WDtC games should be played with 24-hour turns...

(For the record, I didn't vote for my own.)

Wow! 3-way tie for the first question between Randy Cox, EgorjLileli, and Guantanamo.

Here's question #2:

Just wondering, did the winners vote for their own entries or someone else's? I voted for someone else's entry, and lost by 1. Not that I'm bitter, of course.

To be honest, I voted for my own entry. But, I came into it thinking I'd vote for someone else's. I almost did, but in the end I did like mine the best.

The same thing happened to me. I was sure I would vote for someone else's because I wasn't too crazy about mine. In the end, I liked mine better than the rest!!! So, I voted with my honest opinion. I never dreamed I'd come even close to winning/tying!!

Puffin sighting!

Anyway, I did not vote for my entry. I did vote for someone else's, which was one of the co-winners.

Lesson: if I'd voted for myself, I would have deprived two others of sharing the victory with me.

Good for you.

(I was in the same position of puffinge (no $3 tip necessary). Of course, I liked mine the best too, but thought it was more sporting to vote for another.)

No, because the OP wants people to vote based on which line they think is funny, not on who submitted it.

I was in the same boat--voted for a winner, lost by one. I'll just have to come up with a better one next time. I get points for voting for a winner, don't I?

If people are interested I can post who wrote which response after each poll is closed.

Also, to try and alleviate the "I didn't vote for myself and I lost" problem I think I might make the next poll so that you can vote on your 2 favorite answers. I mean, in the published game the judge selects 2 answers so I figure that might work. That way players who provide an answer can, if they want, vote for their own and another answer they like.

Good idea, Ben. By my "sporting" comment, I wasn't as concerned about the bias (those who vote for themselves are more likely to win) as much as much less meaningful results (especially with so few folks voting). Your fix addresses my "concern".

Once again...vote for your favorite:

Poll
Why is a Tiger better than a College Student?

(You may vote for only 2 answers)
  Your Answer   Vote Percent Vote Count
A Cat won't eat what it can't smell.
21.4% 3
Because their tops are made out of rubber, their bottoms are made out of springs, they're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun, FUN!
14.3% 2
Because a college student will eat you out of house and home, whereas a tiger will simply eat *you*.
7.1% 1
A tiger won't wander into the crosswalk without looking while wearing earphones and busily texting her friend.
28.6% 4
You only get one year for poaching a tiger, and no one pays squat for college student skins.
28.6% 4
A tiger is better than a college student because if you send a college student to attack your enemies, all he will do is stage a protest at the mall. A tiger, on the other hand, will maul your enemies on stage. Get it? Roy Horn? *wink wink, nudge nudge* No? Too soon?

Sorry for the delay with a new question. It looks like we had another 3-way tie! Dave, jeffwiles, and puffinge all acquired 4 votes. I just went ahead and tipped some of your posts earlier in this thread for your pay out. I also might start a geeklist with the next poll in order to garner more votes (since geeklists tend to get a little more attention.)

Here's question #3:

What's the punchline of the old joke about a Pirate and a Camel?

And Blackbeard would have terrorized the desert as well, if not for the camel's peg hump getting all slippery!
