  1. Paul Hooson says:

    Thank you Rodney and everyone. My jokes were not great this week, mostly silly stereotype humor or word games using the word “Seoul”. But, what the heck, for the road here’s one more of my silly stereotype jokes” as a bonus:

    A Korean has a housefire. But, he was just fine. He was having another car accident at the time…

  2. Franklin says:

    Nice job everybody! I liked DrDaveT’s 1st place entry and Tony W’s “last place” honorable mention, and many others in between. Great photo choice, Rodney.

  3. Mu says:

    Thanks. I understand now how Kasich feels about coming in 4th in a three man race 😉

  4. Paul Hooson says:

    @Mu: Kasich also never manages to snatch defeat from the jaws of defeat as well. That’s reliable…
