What’s so funny? Your guess is better than mine, because funny is in the eye of the beholder.

What’s so funny?

How could I refuse? Two of the funniest bloggers out there, Geoff Le Pard and Lucy Brazier, were allowing me to be the third judge for Charli Mills’ flash humor contest at the famous Carrot Ranch. So I knew right out the gate that no matter what the entries looked like, the judges’ interaction would be hilarious.

The only thing we had to figure out was… what is funny. Luckily, Geoff had an answer there. Who knows? He tells how it came out, and showcases the winner here.

But, as Charli points out in her latest Flash Fiction contest here, one of the funniest parts of the contest was the one who didn’t enter. We all fell in love with a piece of (possible) spam that floated in with the actual entries. We weren’t allowed to award spam prizes, but I can’t resist sharing the email in which Geoff undergoes a sex change, Channel becomes a candy, and the gppse is well and truly gfppd. Bitchcoin forever!

Check out Geoff’s post and the winning entries here!
