Why did the hippo leave us? [contest]
Posted: Mon Jun 17, 2013 10:31 am
Okay, above you have some fun facts about hippos. Based on those, I came up with some lame jokes about the possible reasons why thehippo8 has retired from the Media team. I'm sure you're capable of much greater creativity than I, so here is the challenge:
The "Why did the hippo leave us? [contest]" contest.
Write a brief story (between 1 and 5 paragraphs) about why the hippo left us. Make it funnier than any of my lame poll options. PM it to me (Dukasaur) in the next 8 days. NOTA BENE: This means the contest closes at noon on June 25th. I'll put together a group of judges who will eveluate your comedic talent.
I must receive at least 5 entries or I will have to cancel this contest. Assuming I get 5 or more, I'll pass them through the judges panel. The top 3 entries will be published in Issue 98 of the Dispatch, and get a free entry into the next Conquer Cup. The very best will be awarded a GA medal as "Funniest Hippo Dispatcher."
