Best Comedy Scene Competition

Words with Jam are looking for a scene that is LOL funny. It can be a stand-alone sketch, a complete scene from a novel/short story, play, script or anything else you can think up.
You are also allowed to include a brief (40 word max) synopsis to introduce the scene but the organisers stress that it really just the jokes that they’re interested in.

So don’t worry too much about character development/setting etc unless it is integral to the humour.
Word limit 1000 words maximun - no lower word limit.
Prizes: £200 First Prize (plus publication in Words with JAM) and five runners up of £25 each (plus publication on the Words with JAM Blog) and a hardback copy of Christopher Brookmyre's Where the Bodies Are Buried
Entry Fee: £5, plus £3 per entry thereafter
Closing Date: 19th August 2011

Winners will be announced in the October 2011 issue of Words with JAM.
