Submission Guidelines

First of all, I give you the setup and the punchline, there's no need to type those into the form. They're already there.

Some people would like to change the setup, because maybe they want to use different family members or what not. Don't worry about it. Simply have anyone else you might need come in the agent's door when you need them.

Most important, be as inventive as possible. Submit your version of the joke, make it as unique as possible. As they say in the film, it's the singer not the song.
