Style Conversational Week 1472: As a matter of fict
Simply as in final week’s Kook’s Tour do-over of half the yr’s contests, however with decidedly extra entrants, I used to be flooded with far too many good entries to run — and so dozens of inkworthy jokes obtained robbed a second time. However I did publish, I imagine, a reasonably darn whoppin’ 48 of them (32 in print), each resubmissions and new materials. This a part of 2021 included two tune contests, one for matters within the information, the opposite for lyrics written within the first individual, and worthies from simply these two may have crammed the web page. (I used two within the paper — Duncan’s Norman Bates winner and First Offender Arnie Rosenthal’s “I Really feel Petty,” “sung” by Vice President Harris — and added Duncan’s Trump administration abstract (achieved to the Invite’s fave parody tune, “Be Our Visitor”) and Beverley Sharp’s “Xi’s the One” for the web model.
