JokeFest update!

Dear Internet,

As those of you who have been following both sagæ, of the JokeFest and of the FPM, will know I like the cool neo-retro-hipsterish pop art of SHAG. OK. On my lunch break I traipsed home, inspired by my FPMing, to actually dig out the various frames and mount a few of the arty bits thereon.

The first reclining stack was, coincidentally the SHAG Enchanted Tiki Room 40th Anniversary. Lo and behold, TWO of the serigraphs had additional serigraphs stuck thereto! THEREFORE...I shall award--although I know not what for--these windfall prints to some JokeFest attendee. The prints in question are "Tangaroa" (the purply one) and "Tiki Room Aviary" (the bluish one).

I may make this an essay contest, I may make this some sort of blog thing, I may raffle...I don't know. Any suggestions would be welcome. I also STILL need volunteers to serve on the JokeFest admissions committee.

The Joke Fest Admissions Committee?
Will such committee members be allowed to accept bribes? Will the applicants be questioned in front the the entire committee, spotlight blinding them from seeing their inquisitors? Will committee members be exempt from the admissions procedure?

Jujube,

You've been in Washington WAY too long.

And yes, this done got covered befo' (to wit)

I was thinking more college admissions than Star Chamber.

For what, exactly would the JokeFest Committee be responsible? I would love to attend such a fest, but I am lo and behold in "la casa de quimbambas" SW Washington/Oregon. I'm sure it will be quite a gas kitten, so please give us a detailed recount of the festivities. (And by the way, I'm sure your wife's friends aren't as bad as you make them out to be!)

Trig,

The admissions committee is in charge of making sure all the registered attendees of JokeFest2006--don't worry, there are already plans for a JokeFest2007--are the sort of people who will be fun to have and will get along with everyone else and, most importantly, will be there to relieve me of the responsibility of talking to my wife's friends or worse, their husbands.

Shame you won't be able to cross the continent diagonally next April, but I promise you details and photography to such an extent that you will have filled your JokeFest2007 application by May 2006.

They're worse.
Did you say April of '06? Well that changes everything! I might just be able to make it. However-don't worry, I understand if you wouldn't invite an anonymous blogger friend. I would be a little wary if MY husband invited someone from cyberspace into our home...I will probably be in th Dominican Republic around that time and then meeting up with friends in Miami afterward. If it so happens that it coincides with Jokefest, I would be delighted to throw back a couple vodka-soaked olives with you and the gang.

Jujube,

Yes, but I know how your memory is failing now that you have been compelled to inhale NASCAR fumes every other weekend.

Joke, I fear that the car that ate your wallet is also the car that ate your mind, for that linked-to entry does not provide the duties of this Admissions Committee.

However, as possess a pioneering spirit*, I would be happy to raise my hand as volunteer.

*or maybe it *is* the fumes

Jujube,

You didn't ask about that, you asked The Joke Fest Admissions Committee? implying this was news to you and you and at the time you didn't say...oh, Hell, it's not worth rehashing.

Yes, you are in the running for the committee. We'll see who else wants in. Otherwise I'll have to do this manually. AGAIN.

-J.
