Hello and welcome to my (joke) shop window.
When Parky asked me to add to this (thanks, Parky), I thought, how do I choose three, out of over three hundred. So I started looking at everything I'd posted, starting from 20 May last year. And I kept stopping. The ones I stopped longest on were the ones which made me laugh when I was writing them, and still made me laugh when I read them now. I enjoy writing humour the most, out of everything. If it makes me laugh, there's always a chance it'll have the same effect on others. And we all need laughter.
These are all contributions in other people's stories. I've deliberately chosen ones I hadn't started myself. They are not necessarily among my highest rated posts - some of them probably went unnoticed when I wrote them - but I like them a lot, and I hope you will too. And if they make you laugh, so much the better.
- A New Use For the Pink Tower - From 2008: A Whig Odyssey, by jonty
This story was among the very first I joined in on, in my very early days here. It's a satirical "parallel universe" story. The lead up to this chapter is that, in this reality, it had been a crime to be Gay, in the UK - punishable by imprisonment in "The Pink Tower" - part of the Tower of London. With the election of the new Whig government, gayness is decriminalised, and the criminals released. So a new use for the Pink Tower must be found. This is what I came up with:
- Huxley's First Spell - from Ode to Cliche, by Amo1143
I don't apologise for plugging this story. It's enormous fun; absolutely hilarious, and I think more people should add to it, and keep it going. It's recently been revived by Faltarego and Smac972. I would recommend reading it from the start. This is the second of my own two additions:
- Gullible Joe - from Davy and Joe, by Eloosive
This is another story I'd recommend reading from the start. Lots of us got involved in this, and it was a hoot. This is one of the chapters I added:
By the way - ALL these stories are still begging to be continued. It would be great to see any of them revived (and it'd be particularly good to see a third person contributing to the "Whig Odyssey")
