These guys are so awesome and talented and funny that all I do is howl with laughter (and pick up the bar tab) when I'm with them.
It dawned on me that the series of photos from this event would be deliciously diabolical prompts for a writing contest!
Usual rules: write a story using 100 words or less. Reference the photos in any order you choose. You MUST reference ALL the photos. Bonus points if you manage to include a reference to Brooks. Reference means that each photo must illustrate a particular moment in the story. (the words Photo x do NOT count for the word count)
Here's an example:
Dan said "You guys should pretend to be each other."
Sean thought that was a good idea until he realized he would have to be Jeff. (photo 1)
Post the story in the comments column of this blog post. Contest opens Saturday 11/19 at 9am. Closes Sunday 11/20 at 9pm. 36 hours of terrifying torment.
Oh, and the prize? Books from all three of the authors. If you already own any of them, and you win, we can come up with a substitute.
Contest now closed! Winner announced as soon as I quit howling with laughter.
