Someone said the contest is going through next Wednesday... such a long time to try to scurry around for votes! Thanks for voting!

12/1 Edit: Today is the last day of voting. I really appreciate all the votes. It looks like I'm in contention for silver, but I'd appreciate any extra votes you can cast to help make sure I don't slip in the rankings. Thanks!

12/1 evening: The contest has ended, and I should receive the silver trophy prize (I already have a gold trophy, so that means 5k NP + a random item, I think). Thanks for all your support!

You've inspired me to attempt getting in, but so far, I've not been able to come up with anything decent.

Pickles, Daze had suggested that entering the contest on Friday evenings was the best time. I entered some on Wednesday evening and some last evening when I got home from work. What I do is just make every lame joke I can. Once I get started, I find they come easier.

I usually look around the caption and try to find one thing to focus on. Once I run out of jokes (usually after 1-2...), I move on to the next thing. I also think it can increase your chances to focus on a part of the picture many people might overlook (like the Lenny last week; only a few accepted jokes referred to him), so it's less likely TNT will have already seen your joke -- remember that they read through hundreds, and even the funniest will seem stale after the first 2-3 times they read it. This week, I made a bunch of macabre jokes because food pets + food = morbid. (Note that none of those got in because the macabre ones that did were tighter than mine -- it helps to work on delivery; pare it down to as few words as possible.) I also went to the obvious puns ("doughnut" and "w/hole"), and tried to cover some Neopian events (e.g., Food Club has been weird lately, so I made a joke about the recipes being changed on Krawk Island, and the Quadrapus's punchline: "That explains the losses in Food Club by Gooblah (and me) last month!"). Often, the joke TNT picks is towards the bottom of my own list of "funny," so I think the key is to just submit a lot of different kinds of jokes. (I think I had 4-6 okay ones, and maybe 3-5 bad "warm-up" ones.)

If you're the kind of person who always thinks of a joke 5 minutes after you've left the situation, it helps to look at the CC a day or two before submitting so your subconscious can work. Don't be afraid of making bad jokes; you can submit as many times as you want, and they get your juices flowing. And sometimes, they even make the cut! *cough*

ETA: I just got my prize for last week's contest: 10k NP + a usuki paint brush! Pretty awesome NP:time ratio this time!
