2011 Christmas Competition.
« on: November 15, 2011, 01:47:24 PM »
Just imagine, against  everything that we have been led to believe for the past 25 years of reading the Beau Peep strip, that Santa (Father Christmas) is not a mean old git for not giving Dennis his much requested bike for Christmas, but suppose instead Santa, in his infinite wisdom, knew something terrible (BUT funny!) would happen if Dennis had ever got his hands on a bike and that is the reason why the mean old git wonderful old gentleman never delighted Dennis with a shiny new bike on Christmas morning.

Tell us the story of what would have happened had Dennis been given a bike. You can write it as a story or draw it as a cartoon strip (stick figures okay) or even express your story through modern dance via Youtube. Extra points will once again be award for those incorporating Brussels sprouts into their story – it is Christmas after all.

We'll make the closing date the 30th of November. Hopefully, this will allow me time to get the prize to the winner by Christmas. I have no idea what the prize is yet but will let you know in the next week or two.

Peeps, you're not very good at anatomy, are you?

1. When is the closing date? As Roger said, November 30, 2011

2. Can I perform it on ice? No.

3. Can you have more than one entry? Yes, you can enter as many times as you like until it becomes annoying - then you will be cut off.

Dennis: Look. I've got a new bike for Christmas.

Beau: Great, I'll just borrow it to pop into town.

Dennis: No you wont.

Beau: Yes I will.

Dennis: No you won't

Beau: Yes I will.

Dennis: No you won't

Beau: Yes I will.

Dennis: No you won't

Beau: Yes I will.

Dennis: I'll punch you.

Beau: Just try it

Dennis: I'll punch you, AND stick a brussels sprout where the sun don't shine.

Beau: You and whose army?

Dennis: Me and mine

(Beau kicks new bike).

Dennis: You kicked my bike!

Beau: (Nonchalantly) Did I?

Dennis: Yes you did. That's new, that bike is. You're really for it now.

(Beau kicks new bike again).

Dennis: Stop kicking my bike.

Beau: What bike? This bike? (Kicks bike again)

Dennis: Yes, that's the bike. You kicked it again! Santa brought me that bike. If he was here, I'd tell him!

Beau: Well he's not here, is he?

Dennis: No. I expect he'll have gone back to the North Pole.

Beau: Right, I'm off to town.

Dennis: Not on my bike you're not.

Beau: Okay, I'll get a bus. But I won't forget your lack of generosity on this occasion.

Dennis: Don't care. Can you get me some sweeties in town?

Beau: *%!* off. You wouldn't let me use your bike. Get your own sweeties.

Dennis: Only 'cos it's new and the novelty hasn't work off yet.

Beau: That's understandable I suppose. catch you later.

Dennis: Happy Christmas.

I get the feeling there's a strong autobiographical influence in all of that, Peepsie?
I apologise, in advance.

Good grief. Is it too late to change this to a "how many jelly beans are in a jar" contest?

Right answer, had the question been - what # was my son in football this year.

I assume Peepmaster's entry is invalid because you said:

Tell us the story of what would have happened had Dennis been given a bike. You can write it as a story or draw it as a cartoon strip (stick figures okay) or even express your story through modern dance via Youtube.

It's none of those.

You assume wrong - Peepmaster can do what he likes. Just because he's the Peepmaster.  8)
