New Joke Contest — There Ought to Be a Law

The theme for the August Joke Contest is:  There ought to be a law.

New Joke Contests are announced at the start of the month (alternating months).

New Cartoon Caption Contests are announced at the start of the month (alternating months).  The next caption contest is September 1, 2012.

Your challenge this month is to create a law that does not exist, and then define it.  Here are some examples:

Balanced Budget Law.  The first money to cover deficit spending comes from the salaries and retirement funds of law makers.

No 15-minutes of Fame Law.  When someone commits a crime, it is against the law to print or broadcast their name or picture.

Crime Reduction Law.  All law enforcement agencies are assigned to patrol adult movie theaters.

Write as many humor lines as you can.  Then select your best lines and submit them.  If you submit more than three, the extra lines will be eligible for honorable mention.  Only your first three will be evaluated by our panel of judges for first, second and third place.

Select and submit your best entries, and your city/state/country, by August 15, 2012, to HumorPowerTips@HumorPower.com
