Hey! I won a contest! In addition to a lot of participant ribbons, second prize in a singing competition with two entries (seriously – and my teacher at the time heard the news of my second place finish and was so genuinely happy for me that I didn’t have the heart to tell him there was no one else there), and a kind of shady set of modeling lessons from the mall, I can now add “Importance of Humor” contest winner on http://nakedcupcakes.blogspot.com/ (shut up, okay. This is totally more badass than the mall lessons).
If you aren’t already reading http://nakedcupcakes.blogspot.com/, you really should. She is witty, and entertaining, and sometimes has contests for her readers (Hello?? Contests!).
I am going to say http://nakedcupcakes.blogspot.com/ some more now.
Of course, anybody new who pops by here via her site is landing on the Lamest of all Lame Stretches in EmotionalUmbrellaLand, but c’est la vie. Sometimes I giggle a lot. Sometimes I want to stab myself (but not really. …kinda). And in between, I apparently moan about our office ant infestation. Prime audience-building stuff, that.
At any rate, here is my entry, captured for posterity’s sake.
A Pictorial Treatise on the Uses of Humor
I find humor most useful for its social benefits. I like humor because…
1) It instantly diffuses potentially awkward situations.
2) It is a powerful feature in attracting the opposite sex.
3) It always works wonderfully at job interviews.
And last but not least,
I like humor because it gives me an excuse to sometimes use Microsoft Paint. And who couldn’t use more of that?
