I think I've won, seeing as there haven't been any other entries...

I think you have as well, though I claim bias as the reason.

I ought to see if I can get my money back for the hiring of the skating rink.

I've done my entry in binary:


001010101010001
010001010101111
011111010101010
000001111111111

I found the last line hilarious but a bugger to rhyme.

Or haiku:

For Christmas a bike
He sprouted with deadly hope
Did he get it - nope!

If Peepmaster can do a "play script", then so can I.

EGON: Hey, Dennis, I made you a bike.

DENNIS: Yippee, at last, a bike for Christmas. I almost thought that destiny had preordained that Santa would never give me a bike in case it led to some kind of mental or physical catastrophe or deep lasting trauma that would ultimately dwarf any small pleasure I might get out of receiving it. So that I don't get my hopes up too much that this is all to change, and given your awful track record with even the most basic culinary endeavours, may I first enquire what you made my bike out of?

EGON: Brussel sprouts.

DENNIS: Excellent! What does the bell sound like?

Dennis wouldn't say "dwarf".
I apologise, in advance.

Was this an awful quiz question?

I could think of a different activitiy if you would like.

Oh, I see. First I hire an ice-rink, only to be told I can't do it on ice. Now my other two entries are going for naught with the competition closed.  >:(

They could make a TV programme about Mince and his ice-rink. Maybe call it "Dunce on Ice". See what I did there?

Personally, I think an ellipsis would have been better than those hyphens.
