Title: Freaky Times Submission Guidelines
Post by: starrwriter on April 30, 2005, 05:43:27 PM
Some guy in Hawaii, my ass! This is YOUR newspaper, you dirty freaks. I wrote the first edition as an introduction, but from now on I will simply design the page (with a rare contribution when the spirit moves me.) It's up to you freaks to provide the stories and photos. So get cracking and start emailing the material to wsmoake@gmail.com as soon as possible. I mean it. I'm not kidding. I'll tell your mom if you don't.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES FOR FREAKY TIMES

(1)Invent a news-type story about anything or anybody. Use your imagination. It's that thing behind your boring rational mind.

(2)Must be funny, but not Monkey's kind of "humor." Sick, depraved, obscene, etc. are all pluses.

(3)Think short -- very short. If your submission goes beyond 4 paragraphs, it better be goddamned hilarious to justify the extra work it will cause me.

(4)SEND PHOTOS! They are absolutely necessary to break up the layout. A submitted item can simply be a photo with a funny caption and no story.

(5)Animations are cool, especially since you can steal them off the web. (We're lawsuit-proof since we own nothing.)

(6)Resist the temptation to submit a chapter from your attempt to write The Great American Novel. It's not funny and it will never be published even if you do finish it, which is extremely unlikely.

(7)After you submit a news item to Freaky Times, don't pester me with questions about when your masterpiece will appear. If you do, I'll delete your story and get drunk.

Write a real caption and I'll use the photo in the next edition of Freaky Times. Think of something funny, angry, off the wall, etc. -- didn't you call her Hamhock or something like that in your posts?

Come on, you fucktards, more than one word or one very short sentence. Tie it in with the hunger strike or something.

I'm not writing this rag, I'm just the layout editor. That cuts into my drinking time enough.

Wait, was I the one who sparked the Starrwriter meltdown? 'Cause that would be cool.

I'm not sure... I think Freaky Times was the beginning of the end for ol' Starr.  The open mockery came not too long after that.
