Well, not that Hannah Montana‘s on this page, answering questions and singing sickeningly-sweet bubblegum pop. We just mean to say that Hannah Montana‘s making a special guest appearance in today’s first installment of Funny Photo Friday. You can click the “Slideshow” box over there on the left to get started (and if you’re a Comedy Examiner subscriber, you should prepare yourself for at least three episodes of Funny Photo Friday today: you worker bees have been busy this week), my gentle Examiner readers…
Note to everyone! Today’s Funny Photo Friday comes at the end of a week that saw more Funny Photo submissions than ever before. This means that we’ve got a ton of material to work with today, which– in turn– means that you can expect at least three installments of Funny Photo Friday this afternoon. Oh, joy. Just imagine: your inbox, filling with one Funny Photo Friday post after another. You’re as excited to receive these as we are to be putting them together, lemme tell ya.
Anyway, these first three Funny Photos were sent in by two frequent– and cherished– Comedy Examiner readers: “Mike M.” and someone whose email address contains the phrase “WexlerLuver” (?!). We thank them both for their continued interest in bringing you, the gentle Examiner readers of the world, only the finest in internet-based photo-hilarity. And now, let’s get to the perma-message…
Here’s how Funny Photos has worked for the past year or so: you send in your Funny Photos, we look ’em over, and the best ones get featured here at Comedy Examiner HQ. Simple, right? It has been. But soon enough, we’re going to be doing something different withFunny Photos, and that’s what we’re really here to talk about.
In the past, those whose Funny Photos have been selected have been rewarded with nothing more than a name-check. But going forward, we’re thinking about turning Funny Photos into a bit of a contest: send in the “Funny Photo of The Week” (or maybe even “of The Day”), win a prize. We’re not quite sure how we’d implement all that just yet– really, though, how hard could it be?– but it is on the table for discussion, and we hope to implement this new reward-system as early as January 1st.
Here’s the other change: for the past year or so, we’ve asked that people send their Funny Photo submissions to our personal email account, but today we set up a brand-new inboxspecifically for your Funny Photo submissions. From here on out, if you come across aFunny Photo that you think needs to be featured here at Comedy Examiner HQ, you can send it in directly to ComedyExaminerFunnyPhotos@Yahoo.com. Several times per week, we’ll raid that inbox for your submissions, and all the winning entries will appear here. Once we turnFunny Photos into an ongoing contest, this is also where we’ll be pulling your submissions from. So, y’know, don’t send any of your Funny Photos anywhere but there.
We’re going to leave this message in place for a good, long while– hopefully, through mid-December– just to make sure that everone gets to see it. And so, if you click on a Funny Photo article between now and then, you’re going to see our intro at the top (which introduces the day’s Funny Photo(s), as it usually does) followed by this message. That’s by design: don’t freak out.
One more thing: we welcome just about any kind of Funny Photo submissions here at Comedy Examiner HQ, but anything with nudity or drug use will be automatically taken out of the running (feel free to send those in for our personal amusement, though!). Sorry to do it, folks, but it’s supposed to be a family-friendly site. Alternately, anything featuring bad language can make it through, but it will have to be “bleeped” (by one of the vast staff of Photoshop-proficient technicians we have slaving away in the Comedy Examiner HQ basement). Oh, and also? Nothing that promotes hate speech, kittens, or Jim Belushi.
Everyone on the same page? Good. Check out today’s Funny Photo selections on the left–as always, they’re in the ‘Slideshow’ box– and come back tomorrow to see the next batch. And don’t forget: send in your own Funny Photo submissions (which can fall into our Fun With iPhones, Fun With Facebook, or Fun With Yahoo! Answers categories) toComedyExaminerFunnyPhotos@Yahoo.com if you want to get involved. We’ll drop a name-check on you for now, but after the first of the year, you just might win a prize if your photo gets selected! Ooh, exciting!
